This news of SETI@Home makes me strangely sad. First at work, and then just at home with semi-retirement I’ve been pumping up results for fifteen years, soon to flatline.

But I understand the priorities of the researchers. Perhaps some of the processing associated with GAIA or other space telescope(s) might find their way to our hungry CPUs.

You get used to your cores supporting one project, I guess, so this is what BOINC project withdrawal syndrome feels like; it had to happen sometime, I guess. :-(
