    That's really too sad. I hope some day they will find the funding again..... hopefully by that time we will find many more potential planets.

    That stinks. Hopefully, they can get back to work sometime in the future.

    Just like the computations - is there a way we can buy the receivers and gather the signals at home - then pump the data onto the 'net?

    Not unless you have room for Arecibo or the VLA in your backyard.

    If you SETI guys' CPUs are just dying not running at 100% 24/7, I know a Folding@Home team that would be very welcoming of new members. ;)
