  1. Just curious as whether SETI, Folding or another program was Techspot's DC client of choice? :)

    most of these DCs are on the new BOINC system at Berekely U. where the program will automatically flip over when another isn't working (server outage for example)

    Personally I SETI only.

    Had too much problems with BOINC in the beginning, so I'm still "old-skool" SETI :)

    People still use these apps? I haven't crunched anything in over a year.

    I am the same. BOINC doesn't work for me.
    I wish they hadn't eliminated classic seti.

    Sure why not use unused cycles on your computer..... it would go to waste otherwise.

    Electricity bill might be one reason. ;)

    hmmm. I'm not so poor I can't afford to waste a few $ on science.

    I quit running them on my home PCs, well it will run again on my K6-2 400 if I ever get around to hooking it up. Hasn't been hooked up since I moved. But I'm still running it on my machine at work. Classic Seti, not that BIONIC crap.

    I run 'em on both (work and home) but the work computers are so flakey it often crashes.... the server sucks in our building.
