Hi Matt,
Neat images, wonder if it could be used as a S@H screensaver?

Regards,

WHOA!!! That is so COOL!
Some where in the back of my mind I knew the data transfer to/from SETI@home was a lot and continuous (except when the system was down for checking, updates or repairs). This display is a good show of that data moving around the world. (But I am almost sure it shows just part of what really moves from SETI to the World and back.)
This was a very Interesting 10 minutes ... and I have bookmarked the site to watch it again soon.
I hope, in my life time, Life from another planet is found.
We may never be able to communicate with them, because of the distance they are from us, but I will be happy just knowing they are out there.

That is pretty fun to watch. I just killed about 15 minutes without realizing it.

No problem on Chrome.

I too 'lost' 10 minutes, looking at it.

Haven't used a Screensaver in years. But I would love to have this, on one of my Computers.

Why bother with screensavers anymore? Simply open up the page in your web browser and press F11 to go full-screen. Leave it up on your monitor for an awesome display! :-D

Also have the SETI logo problem in both IE/Chrome, but if you maximize or goes full screen it looks as it should :)

There are 8 billion people on this planet. SETI@home has approximately 100,000+ users last I recall, and most of those aren't hardcore users crunching away 24/7/365 (meaning you won't see their blips very often). Fact is, there just isn't a lot of people crunching in a relative sense.

If you notice it uses ip2location

Going to that page it reports my ip address as "London" with a north London postcode and I am definitely south London. That is just where my ISP registers its ip addresses.

By the look of the map it is only using data from the larger cities.

That's cool... Makes me think of the old Missile Command arcade game... That map, graphics, and point of view would make for an interesting modern remake of that game....
