Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI@home because I can't think of a better use of idle cpu cycles. There is life out there. And one day we will discover it. We just have to be patient and maybe...just maybe...we'll think of other ways that intelligent life communicates and I'll sign up my idle cpu cycles to search for that too.
