The LWD SETI Team
Posted on Thursday, June 03 @ 05:10:55 PDT by Fido

If you are not familiar with SETI, it stands for "the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence", a group of scientists got together, pointed their radio telescopes towards the sky and began recording the radio signals coming in from space. At first this was brilliant until they realized that even scanning small portions of the sky produce HUGE amounts of raw data that had to be processed and analyzed to see if an intelligent signal had been received. Since they didn't have the budget to process all this data they asked the world to help them out. A few million desktop PCs is a whole doggy bag of processing power just waiting to do something useful.

Our SETI Group (or team as some call it) has been in existance since 8/15/2000 and has grown to a whopping 747 members! The total number of completed WU's for our team is nearing the 3 million mark barrier and the team is currently ranked 29th in the World for the most amount of "work" completed.

If this sounds interesting to you, and want to join us in our search for ET, all you have to do is download the SETI@Home software, install it, create your account, and then go here to join the LittleWhiteDog group! If you want to check on your individual stats, all you have to do is visit the Official LWD SETI team page. We also have our very own Daily News Section dedicated to the team that you really need to see even if you're not on the team!

If you need any help at all getting things setup or joining the team, just drop by our forums and we'll be more than happy to lend you a paw or two. We have an entire category dedicated to our SETI Team, to help provide assistance and encouragement to our team members.
