Just thought that I would throw out the point that it isn't likely
that SETI at home will ever find any intelligent signals and that it
is mostly a waste of energy to look for them given our long distance
to nearby galaxies and planets.  A more productive use of the same cpu
time is likely to be protein folding, something that can be applied to
science in the near term.
