Shabbat and the City » Shabbat and the City in Second Life?

Well, I could say, Now I've seen everything! I'm sure, however, we've only just begun with the SL world.

Stardust@Home - About Finding Stardust

So, around Jan. 1, I was just hanging around, looking at this and that, reading about what's new in technology, and lo, and behold, here's spinoff from SETI. Of course, nothing else would do, but I would have to check this Stardust thing out.

So I signed up for the tutorial, and spent the next hour or so looking for stardust trails.

This could be fun, except I'm a little bit of a perfectionist, and I hate getting things wrong (although I should be used to getting things wrong by now.... ).

So the gist of this is, I use a virtual telescope to examine photos for tiny grains of intersteller dust. It's not like I don't have anything to do with my time, you see. And here's something to consider... SETI uses your cpu power when you're not using.

Here's the real question... Does Stardust use my brainpower when I'm not using it??

Does my "heart" good...

Just came in from a meeting, walked into the den where the tv was blasting, and caught a few minutes of Heart on CMT.
I tell ya, it really does my heart good to see those rawking ladies up there belting out Barracuda... 'Cause you see, they're a few years older than me, and yet, their energy is totally unabated. I'm beginning to believe that age is the greatest illusion...
