[NTISP] OT: ISPs Assisting SETI

Hail ISP owners and Techs,

As you know there is currently a program called SETI @ Home which allows
regular home users and corporate users to assist SETI to decode the radio
signals out there in space. If anyone of you are interested in assisting
goto http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu and get the apporpriate client for
your machines. I would HIGHLY recommend the Text client vs the GUI client
since it will run 2-3 times faster in processing time.

Most NT ISPs must have Idle clocks at about 1000 hours and greater. Why not
use that idle time for number crunching? BTW, it uses the Lowest priority
and lets any other processes run before it. So if you are worried about
performance hits, run it and do some tests.

Sorry to spam here, but thought since most ISPs have about 50-1000 computers
just wasting time, why not use the CPUs for some intelligent number
