Wow -- you and I are on the same wavelength! I had the
exact same thought. This problem SCREAMS massively parallel
processing, and unlike SETI_at_home would give immediate
tangible returns. (Not that I have any problem with SETI_at_home;
it's been running in the background on my machine for years).
