Personal background
I've always had an interest in computers and computing from a young age.

Lately I've been playing around with Raspberry Pi computers since I've had a few laying around. I did some research on what I could do with them since I had no other purpose.

So I set up an original Raspberry Pi model B, and a Raspberry Pi 3 both running BOINC. Later on I've added a laptop running Linux, and soon I plan to add the remaining computers I have sitting around.

Current computers:
1 x Raspberry Pi 1 Model B running Raspbian-Lite
1 x Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian-lite
1 x very old Acer laptop
1 x old HP laptop
1 Dell Poweredge 2900 running BOINC on 3 cores
1 old Dell desktop

I found out the Raspberry Pi 3 does really well compared to the Raspberry Pi 1, and even an old Acer laptop

I hope to reach at least 200,000 points by the end of the year
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run it because I have the extra hardware sitting around, and I'd rather do something useful with it instead of them sitting there

I think the project is wonderful, and I'm glad the opportunity is here for distributed computing at a global scale with minimal hardware
