Seti@home

November 02, 2003

I've recently got a Seti@home account (yes, I know I am way behind on the geek curve with this one :-) ).

I've always had fun reading about people tweaking their systems to reduce the amount of time that it takes to compute a Seti@home work unit. Some might almost consider this optimization a sport of sorts. Anyway, my old Pentium II hasn't been doing so bad. I'm been averaging just over 18 hours of CPU time for each completed work unit. Here's to dusting off old computers and putting them to use.
