    Well... you can search for my statistics from that page itself... i joined it almost 2 and a half years back...

    You get certificates delivered into your accounts when you complete 100, 250 , 500 workunits....

    ps: i got the certificate a week back... but i downloaded it today... so its showing the current date in US... that is one day late...

    SETI@home is an old project.
    SETI needs more money to carry out research.

    @senthilrek

    It's good that U don't belive in Hollywood type aliens, but U gotta believe in Extraterrestrial Life forms as U believe that there is life on our planet.

    Well different opinions and views are there, but SETI being a old concept in "Distributed Computing" has catched the most fire.

    Yes... in fact i have set that seti@home client to work in daemon mode... no screensaver at all... it just works, and fetches data when it requires.. i have to see seti@home webpage to know my statistics... ha ha ha ....

    I think i686-pc-linux-gnu client whould be the one for Athlon chips.... AMD does support x86 architecture...
    btw: here are my statistics if anyone is interested .... my certificate is also there...
