The thing about SETI, I think, it that it's very much all-or-nothing. If the project discovered a verifiable alien signal, then the entire world would be talking about it, it would receive mass coverage in mainstream media, the Berkeley scientists would be lauded as revolutionary and world-changing, there would be plaudits and rewards for whoever happened to crunch the revealing work unit, etc.

As it it, SETI Classic used 2.4 million years of CPU time to achieve precisely nothing. But we can still dream, especially with SETI Enhanced scanning the sky in more detail.

(edit) Look at me, ranting on to myself... welcome to the forum, Nutster :)
