PDJ: 10 Years of No Intelligent Life

Pigdog Journal Computers have passed the milestone of 10 years of CPU time working on the SETI at Home project at UC Berkeley.

Are we proud? Well, of course we are. Sure, there are SETI@Home groups that have returned more results or donated more CPU time. Sure, that describes *most* of the SETI@Home groups. But here at Pigdog it's not just about being first, or fastest, or best, it's about doing our part to prove once and of all that there is no intelligent life in the universe. Ten years of CPU time later, we're just that much closer to the fruition of that goal.

As B. F. Skinner, famed Assistant Director of the FBI, once wrote, "The question is not whether machines think, but whether men do."

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
