No, there's only 13 on their team, we've got 38 team members. C'mon people, leave those machines running all night long!!!! Right now I'm 59% done with my first block of data, after 33 hours of crunch time. Looks like its slowed down a bit. Anyone have any university systems they can be using??? I'm gonna set up my home machine to run this too. Too bad there isn't a JCL version of their program that I could set up on the System 9000 here. Its not being utilized 8 hours a night....

We've got 991 blocks done, the bottom of the top 100 is at 1286 blocks. I'm surprised Mayor Guiliani hasn't blamed the blackouts on people running too much SETI processing....
