Huh?

I guess you are being sarcastic, but you do realise that you have just resurrected a 6 year old thread?

No I wasnt sarcastic! :)

I'm new on this site.

I think you were referring to the supercomputer project, where you could download a screensaver who would help SETI. Is that project still alive?

Look up X-prize on Wikipedia.

The seti@home project may be the one you are thinking of. Now one of the many projects in the BOINC projects. That's refered on Wikipedia also.
