SETI@home

Installed the SETI client on my current machine. I had it on the portable, which I haven't used in a long long time.

Frankly I don't think they are going to find anything, and I'm not even sure it would be a good thing if I did. I just hate to see all this processing power go to waste. I've heard there are other projects going that do medical research, but I was unable to find any. Popular Power seems to have folded in 2001. I'll be sure to take a note next time I read about some such project, though.
