NegativeSpace Posted April 24, 2010 Share Posted April 24, 2010 A long time ago, I had this friend, much older than me and the most skilled and smartest computer guy I've ever known. At the time, he was sort of my mentor. One day I saw some strange software running on one of his laptops and asked him about it. It was BOINC, which is a network computing client that was made by the University of California at Berkley. According to their website, all of the clients who are currently taking part in this program are, together, the world fastest 'super computer'. The project that I am helping with right now is the SETI@Home program. Basically, I take raw data from radio telescopes and crunch it all out in order to determine if the data was generated by intelligent life outside of our solar system. It's really a cool thing to be a part of. I was just wondering if anyone else is doing this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
