Three Years of Seti@home

Yesterday marks my 3rd year anniversary of contributing to seti@home, a project that analyzes radio signals to search for signs of extraterrestrial life. From their site you can download and install a client program, boinc, that downloads and analyzes radio data. By running the following command on ubuntu (possibly other distributions) you can install the boinc manager from the repositories.

sudo apt-get install boinc-*

Southern Vales Linux Users Group has a great tutorial that I found on installing boinc on a linux server without a GUI.

My stats for seti@home can be found here.
