Well.. SETI at Home have released a unix client, which is rather basic.

It dumps a ton of data to text files (I imagine you could kill the client,
and mark everything as 100%, and the client would just send the data back,
but there isn't much point as they dont have stats :)).

It doesnt appear to support buffering - it just downloads 1 'block' sends
it back, gets more, etc.. And it spews out a large amount of stuff like:

Starting work for Doppler shift rate 0.083267, FFT length 131072
5.360447% done
Doppler shifting data by 0.002776 Hz/s

Which is all very exciting.......
