Well, next June 20th will be the 20th Anniversary for me!
Though I have not an impressive participation record at all, it has been very satisfying to have joined this great Project.
Congratulations to all the SETI@Home Team!

Happy Anniversary! On this date in 1999, SETI@home came online. Since then millions of our volunteers have helped us sift through petabytes of data from multiple radio telescopes. ET still hasn't shown up to the party.

We're not discouraged. We're able to examine less than a tenth of a percent of the radio spectrum, over only 1/3 of the sky and a limited number of additional stars. But our capabilities are increasing every day. In 1999 it took up to a week to process a single workunit on a home PC. Now, on a machine with a GPU, it might only take a few minutes to do a far more detailed and more sensitive analysis. Who knows what the next 20 years will bring?

Next 20 years? SETi finding an ETi? :)

If you don't mind I have translated this via google to English:

It is hard to believe that this project has been going through a long period of 20 years. The yearning for the common goal allows us to gather here. Everything is possible in the future. We will continue to believe that we will win and cheer together!


Together we may even reach another 20 years.

I am glad to have been a part of the project almost since the beginning and remain committed. It's been a long slog.

Happy to have played a small part in this project.

I still believe in SETI and I will be there for all my days.

I am not a power user, but that is not important if I understand a little bit about cloud computing.

It isn't bad at all, on the contrary.

Considering that even someone who's only clocked 10 hours since s/he registered yesterday could be amongst those who hit the cosmic jackpot by crunching the next Wow! signal work units, no one who has done any amount of data crunching has contributed worthlessly.

All of us will have helped determine, in this observable Universe, if we are not alone, or if we are alone together.
