    Hey, glad to see his name in lights. Congrats BrentDax! In the meantime, I checked up on the Perlmonks and was surprised to see 116 people on it. Further, we appear appear to be in 182nd place in the Clubs category (I couldn't figure out where else to put us).

    So, while I was admiring their fine site, I clicked the on a link (if you want to find it, go look for it) that pointed to a CGI. That's when I discovered a wee server misconfiguration problem on their part. Some of their dynamic content is currently serving the programs rather than the executing them. I don't see any egregious errors like embedded passwords (but I didn't look that hard), but it turns out that they have some rotten SQL, embedded HTML and duplicate headers. Sigh. So much for the purity of science :(


    Update: They've already fixed the problem. It was the "profile" links that were serving the text of the programs.

    Join the Perlmonks Setiathome Group or just click on the the link and check out our stats.

      ok, dada, here are the information you requested:
      1. go to the SETI@home homepage
      2. in the "User Zone", click on "Groups"
      3. enter "Perlmonks" in the "Search for a group named" box and click "Search"
      4. click on the "Perlmonks" group (this is the link)
      5. click on the "Join" button
      6. enter your email address and the password*
      7. that's all

      * if you don't have a password, here's the link to get one.

      hope this helps, dada, and next time think twice before posting stupid questions!
