[11:00 AM] Now You Can See What Part Of The Sky Your SETI@home Client Is Checking
by Staff

Monkey Byte Development announced that Distant Suns MacOS now fully supports the SETI@Home project. Distant Suns 5.1 helps users by displaying maps of the sky, and SETI@Home integration gives users clues as to where their current SETI@Home data came from. According to Monkey Byte:

If you enjoy working on the SETI project as much as we do (and we KNOW you do), you owe it to yourself to download this enhanced version of Distant Suns for MacOS. Find out where in the sky you are working, and get the thrill of being able to step outside at night and gaze up into the portion of the sky where your computer is busy trying to detect intelligence. This version is also enhanced with new calendars, updated events, and fixes a few minor bugs.

Best of all this is a FREE update for our loyal MacOS customers! Don't delay, go grab your copy right now, before some get rich quick e-mail side tracks you and you miss out on this once in a lifetime* opportunity!

v5.10 update details:

  • Enhanced to support displaying of SETI@Home information
  • Fixed bug causing startup sound preference to always be enabled
  • Fixed bug which caused planetarium landscape color to continuously reset to black
  • Added calendar files for 2000 and 2001
  • Replaced major events file with updated events

Distant Suns is available in electronic format for US$29.95, or in CD format for US$34.95. Registered users can upgrade to the new version for free. You can find more information at the Monkey Byte Development web site.
