Donate your idle cpu to a good cause

Donate your idle cpu to a good cause
-- or at least a wierd one. Want your home PC (or Mac) to participate in SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) during its idle cycles? Well your chance is here! Following in the footsteps of such efforts of Prime95 (a prime number search), SETI@Home is a project that uses worldwide PC idle cycles to comb radio telescope data for signals that appear to be produced by machines rather than natural phenomena. The program is really easy to configure and run so if this interests you then go for it!
