For the longest time I've always had a fascination with space. For years I thought about doing this, but never really felt to comfortable allowing other people or agencies to have even the slightest remote access to my computer. So before I do something here that I may regret and or suffer computer damage, due to the strong loads that might be placed upon it, I thought about running this by everyone here. I've been thinking for years with possibly downloading the required software that would allow the agency known as S.E.T.I. ((Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence)) to remotely use a portion of my computer to process and or compute some of their stuff. S.E.T.I. advertises that regular people out there that allow S.E.T.I. access their computers, would be titled Civilian Scientist's. They also advertise that these Civilian Scientist's can get "interactive" with whatever that persons computer is working on. They offer some sort of fancy screensaver thing that allows people to see other peoples computers out there and a little of what those computers are working on. The S.E.T.I. interactive non entertainment purpose screensaver..... The S.E.T.I. Home web site..... http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ So would this be something worth my while, to help contribute what little I can to the scientific world that is looking for possible life amongst the stars? Or is this something that you would stay the heck away from, for whatever reason or reasons? Please let me know what you think......."thanks"!
