Personal background
I'm a 22 year old student from Germany. I found back to my old hobby with computers about 2 years ago, and soon started to overclock my AMD processors. First, I only used Prime95 and BurnInTest to test the stability of my system, or even MadOnions 3DMark.
Then I found out about SETI, which had the big advantage for me of testing the stability and having a use for other people. Since then, I used SETI more and more often, and now, as my system is stable, I keep going on, as I think that SETI is a really good thing to contribute to.
I normally use my PC for gaming, working and Internet, but in the meantime, where I don't need all of its power, I contribute it to the SETI@home project. When I'm at work or at the university during the day, my PC keeps working for SETI, also at night. I even installed it on my father's business machine, which is running all the time. It's not as fast, but every little bit I think can help.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I like the idea about the SETI project, the only thing that annoyed me in the beginning was the bad connection, when I had quite some trouble getting new WU's. But now, even this is solved.
And the other thing, that the normal SETI client, which also features the graphical application and the screen saver mode, is so slow.
I use a SETI stash client, which takes about 3 hours for one WU and can store many at a time, which the normal one doesn't have, and additionally takes about 8 hours for one WU.
