Yes, great story Spectre - many thanx for providing the link!!
Strangely, I saw a Discovery programme on TV last night (Saturday) which was all about SETI (although only a brief mention of SETI@home, more about
SETI League etc). Seth was featured and came across as an eloquent speaker (as I'm sure we all realised anyway!!
) Certainly, the Moores "Law"
scenario isn't lost on me here - computing power per Ł just gets better and better - here, we've tended to upgarde machines more of less in line
with it (retaining two machines at any one time) aand went from a P2 233Mhz, to a P3 600Mhz, to the current P4's 2Ghz and 2.6Ghz respectively. Now,
P4 3Ghz HT are becoming relatively inexpensive, so *perhaps* there will be an upgrade sometime (when expenses allow!!).
In the meantime, let's keep crunching those WU's folks!!
Incidentally, Ranger - GREAT signature - if you could write a "how to" guide for setting this baby up, I'm sure a lot of us would love to use it?
