Well done EXR!!
Well, of course, it *is* easy if you've got a fast machine or access to a bank of "number-crunchers". However, for people who only have access to
"slower" machines, it can take a considerable amount of time to complete 1WU (I can remember my first year with SETI@home running on a P2 233Mhz
machine where my average WU completion time was 35 hours per WU) so it is very much dependent on the equipment you have available to use.
But, as they say, it could be *that* WU that is being slowly "crunched" that contains the evidence we're seeking - even a slow machine could
discover that one!!
Every little helps, as they say!!
