After over a year in hiatus, the Seti@home software is running again at the Young household! I had forgotten that I ran Seti and happened across it tonight. Here are my account stats. Now that the 1.25Ghz G4 is up and running, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of turnaround time I get per work unit. I usually leave the thing running 24/7 anyway. Might as well get some work out of those electrons I’m torturing.
Hey, even after a year gone, I’m still in the 95th percentile!

I was an early participant in the project so I got the plain name “Jason” as my account name (not JasonY or JasonD or anything), so I’m sure this is me. According to this, my humble effort has been responsible for two of their candidate signals. They’ll probably toss mine out as they’ve discovered several billion possibles, but it’s still neat to consider….
