Proud to meet you Alf, and I apologise for not being instantly aware of your importance. I can assure you that if ever you venture "Down Under" you will meet with many more Alien Life Forms. They frequent night clubs all over Australia. LOL

It has also occurred to me that if I had a number of superseded laptop computers that I could encourage them all to become part of SETI by stacking them away in a quite corner and letting them go about our SETI business. I could then leave them working until they ... well died of old age.

Has this been done, of course "yes", but has it worked and contributed well to SETI?

G'day all,

A real newbie question. I have 100GB download available from my ISP, an Intel Q8200 @ 2.33GHz (4 processors) plus an Intel Quad CPU @ 2.4GHz (4 processors) plus a i7-3960 @ 3,3GHz (12 processors) and currently use around 25% of the combined CPU "in house" for about ten hours per day.

My question. How much more CPU can I add before I start running out of internet bandwidth. I have no idea how much SETI@home uses or how to measure.

Thanks
