Handheld PC Community SETI@Home Group

The Nations of our Group Members (In order of joining)

The SETI@Home group, #58786 has been around since the year 2000. It originally started out as a group to run our internal computers in, eventually becoming a group for people associated with us to compare SETI@Home statistics in. In 2002 it became the ce320 SETI group, and later that year, due to the number of users joining from TT-Forums.co.uk. The Group became a co-operative group run between the Handheld PC community and the Transport Tycoon community.

In March 2003 ce320's resources move onto a new project in the Handheld PC community, becoming the Official HPC:Factor : TT-Forums SETI@Home group. The much respected HPC community resource Handheld Addict responded to the call in 2003 and has joined as the groups third collaborative member. In the latest step in the groups evolution, the Handheld PC community cornerstone and site of our very own Reviews Editor Clinton Fitch joined to make a fourth group member.

Can I run SETI@Home on my Handheld PC / PDA?

No, because SETI is very processor intensive, it would drain your battery very quickly and so it is not economical for them to write a client for PDA's.


If you would like to discuss SETI@Home with other SETI users. The drop by one of the Official Discussion threads over on TT-Forums:-
