I have been searching for ET on and off for more than ten years now.
My first computer was a Pentium 90mhz crunching SETI classic WU'S until it stopped working, after that i had a Pentium2 400MHZ crunching away for a few more years, I realized i needed a more powerful PC so i made an AMD dual core 2.2mhz cpu rig with 1 gig DDR400 dual channel memory on a Gigabyte socket 939 k8nf-9 mobo with a nvidia GTS250 graphics card with Cuda. Yah Cuda. (This is now my wifes computer and its not running Boinc anymore, no more Cuda.)
I hope that we can find life in the universe in my life time, so keep on crunching every one.
Here is my BOINC rig.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run seti because i think we can't be alone in this universe because its to dam big, there has to be someone else living like we are, trouble is there is to many places life can be that its going to take a long time to even look at all those places.
