That is a good point.  However the idea still has merit.  Someone else mentioned (sorry I deleted your post, and can't remember your name)  that he does this for the satisfaction of participating. Not necessarily for any reward.  (okay, I'm paraphrasing several posts) It would be nice if when the time came we had SETI as one of our choices of projects.  Unless rc5 only does one at a time.....  I'm new to this project, and as such I do not know all the rules.

>SETI is certainly appealing as an idea. The problem I see
>with it though, is that you are not getting such a sense of 
>accomplishment from it. Cracking cryptography and seeking primes
>is going to produce results sometime in forseeable future. 
>That might not be the case in the SETI project. Of cource
>in the event that something should be found, the SETI project
>will definitely get a much larger media coverage :-)
