Am I mad? Probably!.....(I've been doing [email protected] since 1999!).
You may be already running [email protected] on your computer, if you are, consider joining the NFH in Britain SETI Team. If you're new to SETI, then have a look.
Little green men? Star Trek aliens? Empty Space? Who Knows......but why not help find out just by using your computer and screensaver?
"[email protected] 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."
The software you download is very safe and has no hidden 'add-ons' etc, it simply displays as a screensaver (which analyses the data when the screensaver runs or you can choose to have the program running all the time in the 'hidden background' - for faster computers 64 0r 128MB Ram + this is fine). When each 'data-block' has been analysed, it is uploaded back to the SETI server from you and you receive a new block of data, all pretty painless stuff.
