Thank you - it *did* take a lot of time - I actually had this ready to go this morning and the server went down, so I've had to re submit it!!
Apologies for the formatting - all the spaces I included (I thought) have been lost... Technology, eh?!!!
Well, my thoughts run like this:
We've gained people (which is great!) but lost *many*: we only have 80 active members from 268 in total.
55 members "left" during January and February 2004, which makes me think "Did they leave because the announced 'Points for WU's' hasn't
happened yet?? It would be nice if any "ex-member" could comment on this please??
Obviously, SETI@home *isn't* for everybody: I think some people are extremely surprised at how long it takes to crunch a WU and probably get
frustrated with it and don't bother afterwards. Their decision and fully supported by yours truly. Howver, it does seem a shame (to me) that 55
people appear to have stopped using the programme - even 1 WU a day from each would be another 55 for the team after all!!
Thanx, again, for your support pantha - and to the rest of the active members too!! And cheers to those who ahve contributed in the past, of
