Introduction... From 1999 - 2020 I was a keen participant in SETI@home - the search from extraterrestrial intelligence, reaching the top 10 in the UK. You can find me listed as 'BMH'. That project stopped releasing data in March 2020 so I chose to switch to Einstein@Home. I had been a casual participant in this project since 2005, but only occasionally contributing, such as when SETI was not providing work or there was a particular event to take part in.

Einstein@Home uses a computer's idle time to search for weak astrophysical signals from spinning neutron stars (often called pulsars) using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the Arecibo radio telescope, and the Fermi gamma-ray satellite. - Link

I mostly only now participate in such projects during the UK's winter months (November - March) when the excess heat produced by my computers can be put to use within my home. There is also a compromise with how much electricity is required to participate along with how much money I am prepared to spend on computer parts, such as graphics cards and suitable power supplies.

Click to readI have been a member of team GPUUG since 21 November 2014.

This is a relatively new section to my website, built around a similar theme of the official Einstein@Home website, but I plan to keep it updated with progress reports and developments.
