I've been using the SETI program for a few weeks now and have logged in close 
to 200 hours of processor time. It only automates the process of trading the 
results of your process and downloading a new batch of noise. It is 
interesting to watch it evalutate the material in a three dimensional graph. 
I guess many of us think that we might be the one to find a transmission - 
maybe an old "I Love Lucy" episode with aliens playing the roles:>)
