|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.
