Squeuer is a queueing proxy for Seti@Home. It keeps a configurable sized queue of work units so that the client will always be able to get a new work unit immediately upon finishing one. It queues results for uploading should the main Seti@Home site be overloaded or down. Results are never lost and the client is never delayed waiting to upload a result. It can handle multiple users running the Seti@Home client on multiple machines all connecting to Squeuer. It has been tested and found to work on different versions of Unix, MacOS, and Windows. All it requires is a Perl 5 interpreter.
