SETI@Home howto posted; attention turns elsewhere.

I’ve finally gotten around to posting a howto for joining Ship of Fools, and all of the statistics seem to be working alright. I’m now going to start work on a thorough techno-advocacy page, and allowing (authorized) users to post updates to overt. Then I may add what seems to be the only real draw to personal web sites: pictures! Who knows, maybe my IP logs will turn up more than localhost for once…

SETI@Home Individual Statistics available

I know, its been all SETI stuff recently. I have extended the “smart agent” on the Ship of Fools page to obtain information on specific users that is not available on the general team page. Just click on a team member name in the stats table and a windowlet with the all available user stats should appear. I have moved the user information to a small database to facilitate manipulation, but data antiquation shouldn’t be a problem since the statistics are updated from SETI@home each time they are viewed. Beware that the Javascript support of Netscape 4.0x is sketchy at best, and you may have some problems viewing the pop-up windows if you are running this or an earlier version. Please let me know of any bugs you experience; I am more likely the cause than you!
