Because I believe in ET.
Because I believe in extraterrestrial (but bacterial) life.
Because I believe in the research.
Because I believe in this project.
Because I believe in this research, and it's easy to be of assistance.
Because I believe it's just a matter of time.
Because I believe on extraterrestrial life and I think this is the least I can do to help to find it.
Because I believe something's out there.
Because I believe there is other life out there, whether it is for the good of humanity or not.
Because I believe we ARE NOT alone. If we were, it would be such a terrible waste of space!
Because I believe we are not alone and we should say HI.
Because I believe!
Because I can.
Because I can and I believe SETI to be important.
Because I can help. I am interested in any scientific endeavour such as SETI@Home.
Because I can particip a great scientific project!
Because I can!! Although the signal from ET may not be detected in my lifetime, my kids and grandkids can say "My father" or "My grandfather" was on the SETI team that looked and/or listened for ET for many years.
Because I can, and why not?
Because I can.
Because I don't want to be alone in all this space...
Because I dont believe that a superior intelligence would use the same level of technology as us, so we are looking for "smoke signals from the space", so my help can end this steril effort quickly.
Because I find the project interesting.
Because I firmly believe we are not alone in the universe and you will need all our help to find others. I also think it is a fabulous way to get large computing power.

Because I must. Because I believe in SETI. Because I hope to be alive when we make First Contact.
Because I personally would like to know the answer to the question, "is there anything out there?" And I would like to know the out come if the answer is yes.
Because I think it is a neat thing to do.
Because I think it is an interseting topic.
Because I think that human being goes to a major Brain evolution and , if we contact with them, all of us need to be prepare for the time of that contact. I am a Neurosurgeon and I want to know if they have more advanced knowledge in neuroscience field that they could give to all humanity, through all of us that could understand it better.
Because I think that we are not alone in the universe.
Because I think the project is interesting.
Because I think this idea is totally awesome!
Because I think we(that I mean habitant on the earth) have to cooperate with this SETI project.

Because It;s Interesting.
Because J.R."Bob"Dobbs told me to.
Because Jodie Foster has a REALLY great ass!
Because SETI is important and I wanted to help in someway
Because SETI is incredibly important.
Because SETI is just that PHAT
Because THEY told me to!!!!
Because distributed computing is the beginning of an evolution toward what the internet was meant for
Because finding ET is cool (for the good of humanity ... nah!)
Because he is . . . out there.
Because i Just like it :)
Because i am a scientist and this is a worthy project. I believe there are many forms of life out there.I have left a couple of questions blank...are "aliens" friendly? well probably and probably not depends on which ones...when will we detect? very good question....that is another reason I am helping. maybe by finding other life we will cherish the life all around us!
Because i am thy god
Because i beleive there is life out there, and my computers may as well help look for them when i'm not using them
Because i believe in it!!
Because i believe there more than just us.
Because i'm a science fiction fan, and I believe in alien civilizations.
Because if you don't look for something you will never find it and the more who look the better your chances.
Because in high school I was voted most likely to build my own spacecraft and abandon the planet Earth.
Because interested people, not the government, should be involved in the search.
Because is funny!!!
Because it (ETI) is there.
Because it has to be done
Because it is FUN!
Because it is a hype
Because it is a move away from "Big Science"
Because it is a neat idea.
Because it is a project that fascinates me; finding is not so great and seeking
Because it is an exciting project that I want to be part of
Because it is an interesting project and want to participate in it.
Because it is an interesting project worth supporting.
Because it is freaking cool!
Because it is interesting and I believe that there are other lifeforms that must have evolved spontaneously
Because it is interesting and fun to do.
Because it is worthwhile
Because it keeps my computer busy while I am not playing Quake III
Because it must be done. If only as pure research.
Because it provokes my imagination
Because it seems cool
Because it would be interesting if i did.
Because it's COOL
Because it's a big universe and it will take a lot of people looking to find something
Because it's a cool idea
Because it's a good initiative
Because it's an interesting project, which appeals to me
Because it's an interesting scientific question; it's nifty to be able to help.
Because it's available!
Because it's cool
Because it's cool to be a part of something big like this
Because it's cool!
Because it's exciting to explore the unknown!
Because it's exciting!
Because it's fun
Because it's fun and it doesn't involve a government
Because it's fun in an odd way
Because it's fun to help out
Because it's here... and the idea of massively distributed computing appeals to me
Because it's interesting

Because it's interesting and kinda cool to watch
Because it's neat
Because it's non-governmental
Because it's scientific research....And it makes me feel useful
Because it's the right thing to do.
Because it's there
Because it's there.
Because its such a good idea to use idle computer time for scientific research
Because its the right thing to do, and the government does not seem to want to fund this research.
Because learning and finding the more about the world around us is the only way i think we have to think about life. We need a reason to live (? well.. as a whole.. we WANT to live). So the reason to live, is.. life.. So how do we live? I think it's by finding the more that we can about the world that surronds us, including possible ET intelligence or stupidity.
Because life in space (human or not) is the next great adventure and this is a way for me to have a small part.
Because life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get.
Because my astronomer friend asked me to
Because my friends do it too :)
Because my girlfriend thinks it's dumb.
Because my mother is an alien so i am half alien and we want to find our people
Because of interest in SETI
Because of my interest in the subject
Because of the chance there is someone else out there
Because of the great idea of using the Internet for scientific research - and to find E.T. of course!
Because of the ramifications
Because only the future can save us from our past. And because my true dream is to once travel to outer space. If I cannot travel there, why not bring outer space to me?
Because seti@home is a perfect exampel of what people can do together far better then what we can do alone.
Because some people need to know
Because the Government won't do its job this important research.
Because the Government, and many American's tend to forget that the world as we know it was discovered and developed because people took chances and believed in what they could not yet see!
Because the SETI idea is great fun
Because the SETI@home screen saver is an awsome idea and I wanted to see it work.
Because the Search must be made, and this is an excellent idea for saving government funding that can be used to gain more data.
Because the USA should stop thinking that they are the best and the greatest, people from europe could also find some ET
Because the answer is "42" but what is the question?
Because the even arrogance of mankind is not enough to fill the void of space, and it`s got to be worth it , just for the tiniest chance of maybe , just maybe, getting it on with an alien chick ! ;] ( all hail Captain Kirk ) - P.S. it`s not just the US government that should be funding the research !
Because the government will not provide adequate funding
Because the human mind needs to know if we are alone or not, so that society can progress after we debunk so many relegious and psychological un-truths.
Because the idea is far more interesting than some boring "crack the million-bit encryption" ;)
Because the project is a good idea
Because the space program needs the support + curiosity...
Because the truth is out there.
Because the truth is out there.... ;-)
Because the way we're running things at the momment we could use a little help...which may be why they're staying away........hmmmmm...
Because the whole Universe and the search for ETI just fascinates me - therefore, this program lets us "every day folk" participate in something most of us would only ever dream about doing.
Because the whole concept fascinates me!! Keeps my mind working as well as my computer!
Because the whole thing is just so fascinating!
Because the whole thing is so very cool
Because there's no NEO@Home. If they do one, I'd rather help them!!! Hehehe. Until then, let's look for little green men.
Because they are out there, listening, watching.
Because they're out there and I'd love to meet them
Because this is a really cool project to help out with!
Because this is probably as close as I'll ever get to space.
Because this is the greatest use of the internet I have seen to date and to give support to the SETI program
Because we are not alone, but to show that radio signals are a neive human way to try and detect life.
Because we can, we must try. Yes?
Because we have a right to know.
Because we have to.
Because we might become famous if it's our PC that discovers aliens.
Because we need help, if we want to make the next step in our evolution, which is exploring the outer limits of space.
Because we need know
Because we need to know. It's that simple. Good work, people!
Because we want to know we are not alone in the cosmos.
Because you are a underfunded organisation conducting what would be the most important discovery of all time and I can now do my little bit to help
Because you just never know.
Because you never know what's out there!
Because you never know.
Because, I can do it.
Because, as a human, I feel extremely lonely in this universe; and I feel it will better aid us through our "technological adolecence" if we were to make contact with other intelligent lifeforms.
Because, as a scientist pooled resources make sense.
Because, when people see it running on my computer they think I'm cool.
Becouse of good humanity and keep my computer productive, also for my research becouse I have learned some new things
Becuase I am a Star Wars, Star Trek junkie, and this is as close as I can get to being part of something really cool. I'm also very interested in distributive computing, but thats another story.
Becuase it's fun!!!!
Beeing somebody in the biggest research. Only to help a snall peace.
Been on the way for humans to get a brand new sigth of themselves.
Before I die, my wish is for there to be either contact with an ET, or factual evidence of some form of life beyond Earth.
Before Viet Nam, I was an Astronomy Major with AstroPhysics minor. Never got to finish. I now run a datacenter for Lockheed Martin corp. Just trying to get a small piece of my dream.
Being a part of a new Idea, finding ET, also keeping my computers busy
Being a part of something bigger than myself.
Being a researcher I feel that it is important research
Being a tiny part of scientific research
Being famous would not be too bad either!
Being involved in an interesting scientific experiment (ET and parallel computing).
Being one in trying to make governments realise that they should fund this research more.
Being part of a global community (and the fame if I find ET :-) )
Being part of a ground-breaking form of experiment with people all over the planet
Being part of a strange and interesting group. Don' t think we'll never discover ET unless they discover us.
Being part of first internet Super Computer (what a concept?)
Being part of something big (and interesting)
Being part of something large and constructive.
Being part of such a massive distributive computing effort is really neato.
Being part of such a massive, worldwide undertaking, with millions of other people! Incredible!
Belief that it is pure arrogance to say we are the only beings in the universe. If the universe is so immense the human mind can't comprehend the size how can one say for sure that no other beings exist!
Believe in SETI Program and just my way to support 2 system's here running
Believe in the project and satisfies my childhood dream of being an astronomer.
Believer of all good causes
Benchmark my computer to friends
Benchmark my systems using various configurations & cpus
Benchmarking my Computers
Benchmarking of my G3 vs Pentiums :-)
Benefit of mankind
Besides discovery for the good of humanity, I think the work seti does will tremendously benefit the astonomical community both ameture and professional.
Best damn screensaver that actually DOES something cool...
Best distributed computing project around
Best screensaver I could Find
Best to know something about a stranger you'll possibly meet before you meet them.
Best use for the Internet and listen to our space neighbours.
Better thand doing nothing all night long
Better to find them before they find us.
Betting on an insignificantly small probablity in the name of scientific quest.
Bit of both of find ET for the good of humanity and Keep my computer productive
Bit of fun
Boronia Peak Holiday Village in The Grampians AU 0353564500
Both 1 and 3
Both 1,3 and 4 apply
Both Find ET for the good of humanity and screensaver
Both altruism and possible famosity
Both for the good of humanity and for keeping my computer productive
Both for the good of humanity and to keep my computers productive
Both one and three... in addition, the colors are pretty
Both societies would benefit in many ways.
Both the project Ideal and the distributed computing
Both to check the system speed and to help researching
Both to find ET as well as use computer for something other than games!
Both to find ET for the good of humanity and keep it productive
Both to find and put it to good use
Both to keep computer productive & find ET for humanity
Bragging rights with friends
Brcause if somthing is found it would prove that we are not allone and I would like to be a pard of that.
Brilliant way to use computers of the world for a common goal
Brilliant way to utilize personal computers!
Bring together computer resources of the whole world to find Exta-Terrestrial Intelligence. The whole world working as one united entity.
By providing popular support which can be displayed to the government, hopefully I can help keep research scientists like SETI funded, which, in addition to having an interesting goal, will probably spin off new technologies for the rest of society.
By some lucky fate that we should finally prove to the people we are not alone and the goverment will be forced to respond about what they do know on this subject matter.
Call it doing my bit towards research
Call mothership. Go home.
Can we as a Planet afford not to????
Can't get date on Earth. Also, we may pick up an ET modem tone - maybe we can LOG IN!
Can't get laid with human females, hopefully I'll be lucky elsewhere

Cause I like all the purty colors.
Cause They ARE out there!!! We Just Need to Search for 'em!!!
Cause i have always been interested in the unknown
Cause if there were alien life and it were to be found, that would be stellar.
Cause it's a good thing to do and uses my puter in a productive manner.
Cause we are not alone
Chance of a new astronomical discovery. Remember the discovery of pulsars? LGM1, 2, etc. Hope you detect a brown dwarf, neutron star or black hole near enough to earth so a probe can be sent. My feeling is there are many nearer than Proxima Centuri. Keep up the good work!
Chance to do some real science on my own
Chance to help with "real science"
