Handheld PC News

Posted 21 years ago | News | Chris Tilley 0 comments

Is your PC contributing to science? SETI@Home is a project that uses the Aricebo Radio Telescope in South America to record the interstellar signals that flood past us each second of every day. The telemetary is digitised and spliced into 350KB segments ready for processing. Processing by you!.
The projects aim is to find evidence of extraterrestial intelligent life.

HPC:Factor has run a SETI group under various names since 2000. In 2002 we joined forces with TT-Forums.net to bolster our numbers and haven't looked back since.

SETI@Home can be run on Windows, Linux, Unix, MacOS and others, but not directly on the HPC. A Screen Saver version is available to add some colour to the project, as well as a faster command line version. The SETI project always needs more computers, and our group is always looking for more members.

You do not need an always-on Internet connection in order to use SETI@Home, an occasional connedction is all thats required.
If your leave your PC on its screen saver for extended periods, or it is left on over night. Running SETI@Home makes your PC's idle time scientifically productive, contributing to an international scientific project. Whether your PC is a Old Pentium 100MHz, or a brand new P4 3.4GHz your contributions are welcome.

Most users find the most rewarding part of running SETI@Home is the tracking of you individual user statistics, and comparing them to the rest of the group members.
If your already a SETI user and are not a member of a group. Please feel free to join us in the HPC communities' contribution to science.

If you are already a member of a SETI group please consider joining us. If you are a Handheld PC Site owener, or another group owner aand wish to discuss merging groups or becoming a Group leader with TT-Forum and HPC:Factor please get in touch.
