I just noticed that I have been doing this project for over a decade. SETI will be 15 years for me next month. Still haven't heard anything I guess.

Happy project anniversary :-) , and thanks for your contributions over the last 10 years!

Too bad we don't have a badge system here (yet), once we do have you should get one!

Yes, we will have more than a

Yes, we will have more than a few Einstein At Home First Decadians* this year ! :-)

Congrats to all, I'll clock in my tenner later on. Imagine that eh? Where does the time go ?

These personal milestones obviously reflect well upon the project, and thus certainly worth a few general observations/reflections :

- the project still exists !

- it has nailed more than a few terrific scientific achievements !

- as a computing entity it has steadily grown in stature and performance !

- it has received genuine positive acknowledgement from professional practitioners in the relevant knowledge domains !

- it has contributed to the professional development of some practitioners !

- it has contributed to the development of distributed computing !

- it has a very bright future on account of the refinement of it's practices and protocols !

ie. pats on the back all around I feel. Or high fives .... seriously all E@H registrants of whatever longevity have provided essential resources, feedback and other valuable involvement that input materially to the above scorecard.

Personally I am recurrently and pleasantly amazed that in a world that presently exhibits more social/political/etc fractures than a grenaded glass factory, such commonality of purpose can be so demonstrated. Plus of course it is a geek/nerd hobby par excellence ! :=)

Cheers, Mike.
