Innocent in *this* case. I don't like a number of things about SETI@home.
It is only marginally more useful than a yet another keyspace brute force

I hope they'll release the sources sometime soon (it's based on TINKER).
Meanwhile, here's some theory of what your box is actually doing:

I suggest anyone who's still running SETI@home switch over to this new
project. Btw, team is rank #83 right now. If a number of you

stuff, so just do it, okay?
