                          What is SETI@home?
                        SETI@home is a scientific experiment that harnesses the power
                        of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the
                        Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You participate by
                        running a free program or "client" that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.
                        Since the start of the project, more than 3 million users have downloaded the
                        SETI@home client, and at this time about 540,000 users are actively participating.
                        SETI@home is now holds the Guinness World Record for the largest computation ever
                        done on earth -- more than 670,000 years of computing time have been accumulated.
                        The latest total statistics are available from the SETI@home web site.
