    I used to run SETI alot. What I eventually want to set up is some kind of a cheap server farm that will do parallel computing on that.

    or are you the one support SETI?

    I've forgotten the name, but does anyone here no of the virus/bot thing that is running on like over a few million computers world wide, effectively a super computer. Don't quote me on that number of comps though.

    I run SETI@home, Climateprediction.net and LCH@home.

    I've had my power computer down for a while now, so I haven't been running it much lately. One friend of mine wanted to get involved and made the mistake of running it on his laptop with and AMD processor. After about one month CPU completely died due to overheating (at least that's what I assume happened). We popped a new one in got it working.
