    Imagine an internet connection so fast it will let you download a whole movie in just five seconds, or access TV-quality video servers in real time. That is the promise from a team at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, who have developed a system called Fast TCP.

    Yup, this is just another reminder of where we stand with our current technology. We are nowhere compared with where we will be. We are still pre stone-age as far as computers are concerned.

    In 20 years we will have home PC's costing 500$ that will be able to compute 786,000 Seti work units in 24 hours.

    In 25 years we will have PDA's that will be able to do 31,000 SETI Work Units while you're on your lunch break, powered by one triple AAA battery.

    This is the most fascinating time to be alive, in the history of mankind. IMO.
