I've been running SETI@home since 1999 and started on a then decent 368MHz AMD K6-2 based system. Now I concentrate my efforts with GPUs and by keeping as many computers as possible running 24/7.
I've had a primitive interest in science and sci-fi for many years. Subjects include astronomy, time travel, UFOs... quantum mechanics, and all that kind of good stuff, I have a website which features these interests and more at: BMH Online
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I've been addicted to running SETI@home and tweaking my computers over the years... refusing to turn off... this is great for the winter as I don't need any heating... but the summer months would get a little warm. Now I power things down for the summer months, enjoying the peaceful nights, but look forward to participating 24/7 in the depths of the winter months.
I think the project is great in that it keeps our minds open to the possibility of intelligent life being out there. I think that it is very likely that extraterrestrial intelligence exists, but when we'll discover "them" I have no idea, some people believe we are being visited by such life forms already and that life on Earth was manipulated by them. We'll either discover "aliens" through receiving a signal such as via the SETI project, or they'll come to visit us for all to see.
