-SETI@home, an international scientific distributed computing project using the idle cycles of computers such as yours in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence,​ needs your help to process data received from the Arecibo, GBT, LOFAR, MeerKatMWA & Parkes radiotelescopes. Join us today at [[https://​setiathome.berkeley.edu]] !+//“Men and Women wanted for a hazardous distributed computing Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Low wages, bitter false positives, long hours of data crunching, overheating CPU's and GPUs. Safe return doubtful without caffeinated beverages.
