    You only have to be connected to return completed w/u's and grab new ones. ;)

    Method 2 at this link, http://www.soni.dk/Distributed/seti_installation.asp, is the best way to run SETI plus you can store a few days worth of w/u's and this way ya get to cut down on constant reconnects.

    And welcome aboard. :thumb:

    Much faster plus it doesn't have the side effects that the GUI version can give. ;)
