team hackles @ seti Join us in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence! If you don't know about SETI, here is an introduction from the SETI@home web site:

"SETI@home is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data."
A person running the SETI@home program can start or join a group, for example representing their office or school. Team Hackles is a SETI@home group started by Phil, one of Drake's former co-workers, and all our readers are welcome to join. Let's find us some aliens!
