    Talking SETI - What exactly is it?

    Q Someone told me I should install SETI on my machine. What is SETI?

    A SETI stands for the Search for Extra Transistors Inside. What you do is you open your PC case, get a very fine drill, and open your CPU. Then you start counting the transistors. This can take some time, depending on the microprocessor in your machine. However, expect faster times to complete a SETI round if you have a 286, a 386 or a 486 rather than those new fangled Copperwhoppas.
