Well, if I post to this thread I can look to the left to see when I joined.

I believe it was in '99. I actually joined the original alpha version at an even earlier date.

Had 1 little machine crunching back then. Still chugging along, although there's obvious a lot more projects out there now.

Started 19 May 1999

SETI@home classic workunits 13,200 (or more correctly TASKS)
SETI@home classic CPU time 137,756 hrs

Dropped out when SETI Classic stopped and there were significant outages - far worse than currently being endured.

Returned over a year ago and also run CPDN on MacBookPro
SETI runs on PPC Macs
Tried BOINC Windows on VirtualPC but later decided to give that a miss

I joined Seti@home on Sep 16, 1999 on a Pentium 2 machine and since then tried to replace my idle task on my machines with SETI and recently with other projects like World Community Grid or Climate Prediction.

Wasn't one of the earliest adopters but pretty early: November 10 2000. Happened to be doing a gig at a Dot.COM and a fellow put me on to it. Can't even remember who he was or if he's still out there now.

Crunched contentedly (probably on a Dell Pentium and then a Pentium II likely) until the end of SETI Classic and then took a long break and returned just about a year ago now.

SETI@home classic workunits 9,209
SETI@home classic CPU time 63,690 hours

I'm here now until the fat ET sings.

Hello.

Started crunching on my overclocked Celeron 300. It was a beast, got that bad boy up to 500mhz. 128kb of cache HOLLAH! Then the cheating became rampant in SETI and there wasn't any point. Walked away for a good while. Now maybe BOINC has a handle on the cheaters (and maybe not). Mostly SETI seems not to give a **** about the crunchers, so oh well.
