Radioactive@home is about to order a new batch of radiation detectors so if your interested in buying one or like me buying a spare then now's the time to put your name down.

http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=551#3712

They say they'll cost about 30-33 Euro. Presumably that will be plus delivery as extra. Keep checking if your interested.

I thought about doing this project because the badge is cool but now that I see what's involved, I think I'll give it a miss.
It's a bit like the old Bitcoin Utopia days of buying separate devices lol

Yea I like the idea of it,  a global network of Radiation detectors keeping an eye on the real levels and not just what the government wants to tell us.  I suppose it's not as vital for us aussies but you never know what's round the corner do you? Plus Clouds of radiation can travel hundreds of miles so there's that plus there's Lucas heights and almost every hospital has some amount nuclear material plus i'm sure there are other uses that we aren't made aware of too. So for $30 - $40 I reckon is not a bad price for keeping "the bastards honest" LOL

I've had mine for.. I think for 3 or 4 years and it's still going strong 24/7.
Yea you don't do this one for credit that's for sure. 
Especially when you only receive around 148 credits "per day". Faint LOL

It's quite a good way to get a cheap geiger counter if you want one.  Wink
