I had re-created the thread I created in October 2004. [It grew to large for dial-upers.] Originally, I assumed that people would know that that thread was for the purpose of announcing SETI milestones. Suddenly, it was decided that it was for any kind of milestones which went against my thoughts for that thread. This new thread is for the purpose for which I created the original. Anyone is welcome to this thread and welcome to post. All I ask is that you follow the guidelines I have set for this thread.

SETI/BOINC MILESTONE THREAD GUIDELINES:

1. This thread resides in the SETI/BOINC website message boards.
2. This thread is for announcements of milestones for the SETI/BOINC project.
3. This thread will allow milestone totals of all BOINC projects crunched.
4. This thread will allow references to other individual projects. [See #6 below.]
5. This thread will allow helping new users only if related to SETI/BOINC and the topic of this thread.
6. This thread will not allow milestones of other individual BOINC or NON-BOINC projects. Those projects have their own message boards for this purpose.
7. This thread will not allow milestones not related to SETI or BOINC totals.
8. This thread will not allow flaming any other users. [See this thread.]
9. This thread will not allow any profanity.
10. This thread will not allow 'stretching': no overly large graphics and while quoting a post with a very long URL in it, fix it if you know HTML, otherwise delete it or place spaces in it to break it up so it will wrap properly.

My SETI/BOINC credits should, once again, surpass CPDN sometime tonight. I have suspended crunching of CPDN in favor of the up and coming PlanetQuest project. To me, it's much more interesting than predicting the weather in 2063. I won't be around then anyway. >:-)

I broke 70K total BOINC and SETI/BOINC has finally surpassed CPDN, again, by 5.99 credits. >:-) Go SETI go....

EDIT:
Well, seems SETI has NOT surpassed CPDN. My stats graphics show that I received credit after suspending CPDN. SETI still has 89 credits to go to surpass CPDN. >:-(

Message 86842 - Posted: 17 Mar 2005, 4:00:33 UTC - in response to Message 86788.

At 18,500, should break 20K in about a week or so. I run mine on my 9100 Inspiron Laptop and was wondering if people can leave it on all night running. The unit tends to get rather hot and while I haven't seen it crash or bluescreen by itself, I don't really trust it fully. Any ideas?(Just over 4 months of crunching and nearing 20K seems not too shabby)

I leave my tower on 24/7 with no problems. I'm not sure about laptops, since I have never owned one. I do know, though, that I have seen cooling systems for laptops. You may want to check with you local computer store/geek. >:-)

You have almost 20K after just over 4 months of crunching BOINC? What CPU does that laptop have? I'm running a P4 2.8Ghz w/H.T. and 1Mb level 2 cache. I went over 10K last October which was about 3 months of crunching. Hence, I started the predecessor of this thread to record such milestones.

My local computer store is CompUSA and they're all whores over there. Tom's Hardware is my bible but it's hard to check there about Dell stuff and Dell people seem to have difficulty grasping the concept of customer service isn't trying to sell me more stuff I don't need.

I'm running a Pentium 4 2.8 w/ H.T. and 1 MB L2 Cache, 512 DDR400. Pretty much leave it on anywhere from 14-16 hours a day. Takes around 13-14,000 seconds to do a workunit. This seems to go faster than my P4 3.06Ghz Desktop, though I think because it's only 512KB L2 Cache, I could be wrong.

Ponbiki, I wouldn't worry about leaving the lap top on all the time , I have an Inspiron 8200 and I rarely turn it off (current up time 14 days). However, I do have it slightly elevated off my desk to increase air flow (a good strong cookie cooling rack is what I use).

And I just hit 700th in Canada for combined stats!!! (With one 3 year old lap top, this is VERY good)

I have recently surpassed 100K credits in SETI, top 1% nationally and top 1% internationally in BOINC. I am slowly but surely heading for top 1,000 position in BOINC worldwide.

Ok, now it's official. SETI overtook CPDN! Finally! Now, I'm waiting for PlanetQuest, then I'll be back up to 4 projects again.

Total credit 22,767.51

I read the link, is PlanetQuest going to be Boinc'ed?

Things go pretty fast at the moment *wondering* Now that I've passed the 50k "barrier" (BOINC total) it feels like the number is growing faster :D Just passed 500 on pirates but burp is gone just as I thought I might try attaching again...

Oh, yes meckang, it really does look like PlanetQuest is going BOINC - yeah, right on, go PQ *lol* nano@home seems to be very very interested in going the BOINC way as well and the Lattice project is getting ready. I'm waiting for AstroPulse as well... (damn, I need more CPU's *lol*)

Thank you :)
and LOL is right!
I have only 2 pc's and am wondering just how thin to stretch things. But I think I'll stick with 4 projects.
To the futur... cheers!

Lattice has had that page up for nearly 2 months now ...

It is a shame that Astropulse is going to be folded into the SETI@Home project, like Predictor@Home has a couple different applications.

And we *ALL* need more computers...

The interesting news is that it is possible that the top end PowerMac will be a dual - dual core machine ... way cool! Now, if only the rumors pan out ...

I always keep to the Boinc mainpage for what projects are being offered:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/
and here for a complete list:
http://distributedcomputing.info/projects.html

I do hope they use technology to keep information grouped for easy finding. ;)
- If only they could create something for storing and manipulating large amounts of data ;) ;)

I know, but it seems it WILL open to the public - some day ;) And I'll keep you posted when it does

And it will be no different with Lattice - but I agree with you on AstroPulse. It may have a possitive impact on set though, as people who want to crunch for AstroPulse also will crunch for seti - but it may also have a negative impact on those who do NOT want to crunch for seti propably won't get to crunch for astropulse at all... But the main thing is, in my view, astropulse going in the air.

:) Personally I'm an AMD man - and dreaming of a dual AMD64 *lol* but I guess I'll have to win in the lottery :D Not even sure a dual 64 mb exists yet - but I'm not checking it out at the moment, as tears would just roll down my cheeks because I can't afford it *lol*

Me too - and frequently check them out - as well as sign up for news where I see a chance of boinc support so I'll know when they open up ;)
