utilizing your core i7 with SETI at home

Posted on Dec 17, 2008 by Paul White

Now that you have your awesome new core i7 workstation ( like me ), its a shame that whenever you look at task manager you rarely see your 8 processing threads being utilized.  Well if you are one of those people that prefer your 4 cores not being hanging around the water cooler all day ( System Idle Process ). Then I have just the program for you.  Help in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence ( SETI )

Being its getting cold here in Texas, why not turn your computer into a make shift space heater?  By running SETI at home you will keep your CPU maxed out doing work, resulting in both a contribution to the research community, and heat for your office.  Even though the core i7 is pretty efficient.  Running SETI it does make a little more heat.
