I don't know why I never got around to this before now.
I've known about Seti for years, but for some reason I never bothered to participate.
To participate, you just download a client from Seti downloads
After downloading and installing, if it's not a screensaver version, start it up with a script like:
cd /yoursetiinstalldir while true do ./setiathome > myseti.out sleep 21600 done
If that script is called "seti", start it with "nohup seti &".
You'll be asked for your email address and other preferences. Once you have that, it begins collecting and processing data. If you want, you can join a group
Got something to add? Send me email.
