the team is called ágætis byrjun, after a song by sigur rós. the team
consists of two brothers, cuthbert and jay, both former members of the seti-project x, a seti classic team
formed in 2001 which had up to 40 members from 8 nations, until the year of 2004. most members quit the team
then and did not run seti anymore. ágætis
byrjun means "pretty good start" and forming up a new team
for the seti boinc project seemed a pretty good start. the team got an icelandic name because
cuthbert and jay both like iceland and the band sigur rós.
