i'm coming to thinking that aliens are already visiting this earth. i'm beginning to think that seti is bull#ting us. i'm begginning to think i should stop wasting my time with the seti@home software.

this is more a gut feeling than anything else, but is it worth bothering with seti?

sure it is levi, I mean, do you think 'they' will tell us about the aliens? We've got to go out and find them ourselves.

I used to have it on my computer, but i took it of, it chewed up to much computer time, you need lots of ram.

I personally think that seti@home is a bunch of crap. I dont think they would actually let people do it. I think that they just have it there so that when they are asked why they dont tell people that they have found messages, they can reply that they do b/c they have seti@home where people can help in the search for extraterrestrials. Mine doesnt work anymore for some reason, either they really do let people help find them and i found something so they wont let mine work anymore or it just broke. I think i found something though.

I quit it a long time ago because I had the same thought like you Levi. Maybe Seti is a NSA program and is scanning your harddrive

well after 58 units and 1150 hr 37 mins i've decided to uninstall.

if the time comes when seti decide to release information saying they've recieved a genuine transmission from an alien race thanks to the seti@home software, i think they'll have already chosen the person whos supposed to have processed the information and the information will probably be a few yrs old.

You never can be paranoid enough

No seroisly I had the same thought like Levi. The Aliens are probably on earth already so why the heck should I look for them outta space?

I've considered doing the exact same thing, but I don't think that I would have anything better run on my computer. Until that time comes, I continue to process my 163 data unit with over 4299 hr 34 min done.

well, I think when people stop looking for them via seti@home and the like it's just a victory for the 'them' - we've gotta 'fight the power', 'stop the man,' 'kill whitey' (j/k) and keep this sort of stuff up. Maybe one day, hopefully before we all die, we'll see full disclosure. If you quit seti than you've given in, in a sense?

Well I can see your point as to weather it is worth running the SETI@home programme. but your point can go the other way maybe seti is important, but we are being told that it's not and that there is no point in trying to find ET so that we don't run the programme and aid in this search. I think that it is a good thing that we are doing by letting the boys at SETI use our computers to process all the data that they have recived over the years. I have been running SETI@HOME on my home computer for over a year now and I have had no problems with it what so ever. Yes you should help with the search by running SETI. Alright you may not get the credit for finding ET but you help a great deal in that search. I'll keep my programme running for as long as I am able to...

I quit with my Seti@home years ago because I know for a fact that either there are aliens visiting the earth.

I believe the Seti@home project is a waste of time. If aliens are sophisticated enough to make it to Earth, then most likely they are sophisticated enough to mask their signals to make it look nothing more than cosmic radiation.

I think everyone is way too paranoid. If you don't want to run Seti, then don't. A few thousand Users won't affect the overall result. I myself have been running seti for over 3 years and am going to carry on! (Either until I die or when aliens are detected)

I'm coming to this discussion very late but just wanted to say that I, too, will run SETI until they "pull the plug" and will then follow with the Southern Hemisphere search, AstroPulse or whatever replaces it. Like others, I *want* my computer to earn it's keep, whether I'm there or not - get crunching!! !!

In that case, what if the aliens already here happen to be secretively "guiding" the world governments? Haven't they screwed up the world enough as it is already? Then wouldn't it be wise to try finding some off-planet friendlies who can help us out of this mess? Maybe you're still not paranoid enough...

After 289 Units in 3868 hours & 68 minutes, I'm still running it...

levi all the thousand different species of the alien indeed
have already came to our earth from time to time but to the best instrument we do have is only the computer.
but most of the alien ship have the cloaking tech,time shifting so when we try to monitoring this alien they are not in our instrument scope cos it is same like we are try too scanning the bunch millitary people of cos this bunch have more advanced tech then our technologies
is it

I got rid of the program a year ago now.

I am quite new to seti@home, only 19 units in 104 hours and 30 minutes, I'll keep on cause I have a powerful PC otherwise I think I'd quit.

SETI is a waste of time. First up, it's like trying to scan NSA signal with your ham radio.
Seriously, just try to think about it.

Then again, have anyone tried to reverse-engineer the software? One Swiss company already had it with NSA, noone knew that they were used - until the Iranian contras revealed the secret.... So, it's not being paranoid - it's called being cautious and aware of the situation.

So unless bastards [@SETIhome] come clean about all the source code, and make it a public domain - there is no way in the world I'm installing it on my dual MP.


But, yeah, you all tech junkies go ahead - and install it on your PCs. At least you can then tell your friends how cool you are, trying to trace an alien civ at home!

*you make me laugh*
