Fired For Running SETI

I think everyone has seen the signature screensaver, the tell-tale sign of a machine crunching packets for SETI. I've even seen a few running on workstations in a corporate environment. However, running it on a production server is pretty dumb, and not surprisingly, it could cost you your job.

Of particular note is this choice quote from the BOFH, "I understand his desire to search for intelligent life in outer space, because obviously he doesn't find it in the mirror in the morning."
