Site News Dave Oliver, team captain of Vulture Central II, writes Woo-hoo, we made it. VCII has now donated over 1000 years worth of processor time to Cancer Research!

Congrats to everyone who has been involved in the project, we have now progressed to the second part of the project.

Well done everyone, all 2,438 of you, and a big pat on the back to Dave for his organisation.



And now to the SETI@Home fiasco. Six, seven weeks ago, Vulture Central, the Reg's 1,600-strong SETI@Home team disappeared off the face of the planet, possibly abducted by aliens.



SETI@Home doesn't think there was a glitch. It says most likely the team was disbanded. Which is entirely possible - although two other online tech site teams disappeared the same week-end.

Because of our lack of organisation, it's taken much too long to set up another Register SETI@Home team. But here it is: It's called El Reg.

This supersedes the restarted Vulture Central - we
think it better to run this team in-house. That way there'll be no misunderstandings.

You wanna come along for the ride? Then transfer those credits! ®
