Steam Escaping!

feh

so lj got rid of invite codes
I understand them wanting to make an impressive free service available to all, but I have fears as to what kind of miscreants and spam this move might cause.
no, I am not one of the "doomsday prophetizers", but I do think that, with it's loss of exclusivity, that LJ is going to suffer.

This is so cool - the first big commecrial application of a model SETI@Home has been useing for a long time now, and that GIMPS won a recent victory with. I kno there were some initiatives to put this model in place for low-cycle compensation years ago, but that was before the bubble burst, and, i'm sure, the funds that were going to fuel the initiative went the way of the dodo.
