Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I just got an email from Arthur C. Clarke, famous author and scientist. Of course, this email went out to everyone who’s registered to run seti@home so I’m really not all that special.
SETI is implementing a new method of data collection and is looking to update their equipment. For this they need both users and dollars. If you’re interested, you can read the email in it’s entirety after the jump.
Speaking as one geek to another (thousand) I would urge you to use your free CPU cycles for some sort of project. Whether it’s the World Community Grid, Folding@home, SETI@home or some other initiative. If you’re leaving your computer on at work or at home, please dedicate those empty hours to fighting disease, working on physics problems or looking for other civilizations.
SETI@home needs your help. The SETI@home team has accomplished much in the past 6 months.
