Thx to bluejay for reminding me from a previous thread...
Haven't heard of SETI yet? As quoted from their site,
"SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.
Every good hardware forum has a SETI team. Just check out the top teams. Sun microsystems, Intel, Overclockers.com, Anandtech, and tons of others are among the best teams.
My proposition? We need a Retrogames.com SETI@home team! It's a free little 7 MB program that runs as a screen saver, has NO spyware, and is fun to watch =P. If you are overclocking your PC this is a great program to check for stability. Should it error out alot chances are you need to peel back a few mhz.
Let's be the first emulation site to join SETI! What do you get from it? Glory, pride, and a happy computer! Maybe we will discover some aliens! Who knows! Let's spread our influence and compete with major teams!
Interested? Start here. Download the program and then start an account. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to do both. Then go here to join the team. It's simple and the whole ordeal won't last 15 minutes.
Name of the team is: Retrogames Hardware & Software Tech Support Forum SETI@home Team
Once you're done log on and let the computer start crunching that data! Drop a post if you are having problems.
