2. Matrox Triple Screen Display is perfect for Genealogy and Ancestry Work!

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
You need to advertise SETI@Home or have The SCI (Science) Channel do a story on SETI@Home and show how easy it is to set up.
The most IMPORTANT thing anyone can do for the SETI programs is to DONATE to the cause. You don't have to donate hundreds of dollars if you don't have it, but even $10 can make a difference if a 100,000 people do the same. Each little bit of money folks donate does go to a good cause. I try to give at least $25 a year and wish I could do more. However, being 100% disabled and home-bound I have to watch every penny I spend. I know there are many of you that may be in the same situation, but if you can donate a little each year and encourage your friends to do the same, we may one day be able to have a Radio Telescope attached to the International Space Station. Anything is possible with enough support!!
Running SETI@Home 24/7 is great in the Winter months because it heats our entire upper floor of the house. In the Summer, I have to cut back if my wife says it's too hot. My Water-Cooled, Triple-Radiator, 8-Core System stays on since it is so quiet. I do whatever I can to support and run SETI@Home tasks.
The US Army team has a bunch of dedicated members. We need everyone on the team to do whatever they can. It really does help if you only do one task a day!
With so many US Army veterans out there, why are there so few in here???
God Bless you all, whether you served...you are welcome here!
