It appears that the SETI Project has finally found something!
Okay, it’s not proof of life on Mars, but at least it tracked down a stolen laptop :)
From the article on Slashdot:
One of the volunteers was able to track down his wife’s stolen laptop using the IP address that SETI@home client reports back to the server. After getting back the laptop his wife said, ‘I always knew that a geek would make a great husband.'”
