At some point today, Vulture Central's 1,300-plus Seti@home crew should complete 1,000 years of CPU time on behalf of the world's biggest search for extra-terrestrial life.

At time of publication, our intrepid team has already chomped its way through a stonking 999.444 years of processor time. Respect.

And if you want to know more about Seti@Home, here are the scientific project's FAQs.

We also have a Vulture Central team for people keen to donate spare processor cycles to cancer research conducted by Oxford University. ®
