I'm a bus driver from Winnipeg, Canada and founder of the best BOINC club on the international stage, Team Starfire World BOINC, with an excellent forum and IRC channel where many of us like to hang out.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I started running SETI@Home for the cool screensaver, and my interest was revived many years ago when a group of forum regulars at DSL Reports decided that running SETI@Home as a team might be fun to do. Our goal was to make the top 200 teams, and we ended up ranked as high as fifth!
A group of us moved on recently from their limited team to form Team Starfire World BOINC, with the goal of being the #1 BOINC team in the world. Our hearts are still with SETI@Home though.
