Hi for Everybody,

If any of you, the setihome staff, will read my message, than think for a moment how do you feel if one week after your announcement of finding a new civilization in universe, you will still get from our civilization only some fade answers, relating to your great descovery ?

I trust your team. You are pioneers of space. So, I provoke you ! Don't find your peace until you find out the truth about my discovery ! I could tell you the my descovery need one of your physics specialist. But is not true. For understanding my discovery is needed the knowledge of an adolescent ( I learn about magnetic field in my 10 year of study ).

So, because what I found is crazy, unbelievable and still is reality, you must immediately free download my article from

http://epursimuove.ro

Don't rest until you find out the scientific truth about my article. This is not because I'm not sure about it. But I can use your quick opinion and you will start new dreams !

Thank You ! My email address is danielsanfira@yahoo.com

Eric,

If the following suggestion is not even close to the purpose of this new forum…well…umm…you may take 250 credits away from me as a penalty:

Here is my suggestion: Start a thread where a question, comment or suggestion may be asked and only an admin/staff person may reply in that thread to the question.

It would be nice to be able to ask a question or make a comment/suggestion to the staff and admin without others jumping in with their comments before we get to hear from you. It would give people the chance to ask or comment more freely without fearing a whiplash from those that don’t agree or like the comment or question. I wouldn’t want this thread to become a whipping post for you guys either. The questions, comments or suggestions would have to be asked in a respectable way and could always be deleted if they happen to be overly hostile. The questions don’t have to be limited to SETI. *You could make it a question and answer “only” thread if you prefer.

The thread could become large due to your time constraints and inability to answer the many questions in a timely manner, so limit the thread to the first 15 (or whatever you choose) questions and then close it. Once these questions have been answered (at the staffs convenience and availability, no time constraints) open the thread to the next 15 questions or start a new thread. If technical questions like: “How do I suspend Boinc” start appearing, you could ignore, delete or refer them to the proper place. People would only be allowed to post a question in this thread once every 2 months (you set the parameters) to give others a chance to ask questions. Questions must be 50 words or less (so you don’t have to read a novel with a 6 word question at the end) and the post can only contain 2 questions (so the poster doesn’t ask you 99 questions in 1 post).

This would be a thread where we could ask and hear from the admin and staff about our questions, suggestions, thoughts and ideas > and only the admin/staff.

Just a thought,
TY

It's a good idea to have international forums. The hard part come in how to handle the flame wars that will eventually arise. I suppose we could require a volunteer to moderate before we open a board in each language. I'll add this to my internal suggestion box.


I'm from Luxembourg, I speak English, French, German and Luxembourgish everyday and I have some forum experience (I'm the admin/moderator of a community). I'm willing to spend my time moderating it.

The main issue I'm interested in is the science status. Is it possible to get some info about new candidate signals? There used to be a list for SETI Classic. Also as said before there should be more news about the science and progress.

Thanks for your time.

Well, here's part of what could possibly drum up Support / Monies for

SETI / BOINC Projects . . . what do YOU think of all that's going on in

Reference to the 'Laptop News' . . . ?




Aliens, Geeks, And A Stolen Laptop by David Utter Staff Writer 2007-02-15



® SecurityProNews publication - 1998-2007 All Rights Reserved

Do not trifle in the affairs of geeks, let alone pilfer their wives' laptops, for they are subtle and quick to track you down.

SETI@Home may not have discovered alien life yet. But it did help one persistent guy find something else - his wife's laptop, which had been

stolen on New Year's Day.


Rather than just dropping a police report into the ether to drift along with thousands of other reports of stolen electronics and waiting for

the insurance check to arrive, James Melin took action. A WCCO.com report said he started keeping an eye on the SETI@home site to see if the

laptop would phone home.


It did, three times, and Melin collected the IP addresses recorded when the laptop accessed SETI@Home's servers. With that information in hand,

Melin took it to the police, who in turn took it to court for subpoena to find the identity behind those IP addresses.


They did, turning up a thief who either had really bad taste in rap or was even worse at rapping himself. Along with his wife's screenplays

and novels, they found "20 tracks of rap music with unintelligible lyrics."


A savvier thief would have probably wiped the hard drive, so Melin was fortunate that the person just plugged the laptop into the Internet

and started using it. The incident is just one of many laptop thefts that take place all the time.


It makes us wonder why more effective laptop recovery software isn't being more widely used. SETI@Home worked here, but it is trivial to

uninstall. There are solutions that are much tougher to defeat. Perhaps people and companies are a little privacy-paranoid about having a

third-party being able to track their machines whenever they connect to the Internet.

Can there be any good invitations/encouragements for seti members from different cultures and countries besides english speaking countries? Well it is clear anybody can post here but when people from non english speaking countries post here they make few grammatical mystakes and mostly you guys kind of ridicule them like asking to write correct english etc.


It's a good idea to have international forums. The hard part come in how to handle the flame wars that will eventually arise. I suppose we could require a volunteer to moderate before we open a board in each language. I'll add this to my internal suggestion box.


I can do it for the german section.

Mike


I have not seen the flame wars aluded to for the non-English speaking contribitors.

Indeed the majority of the "other" language contribution, when given in English, is signifiantly better in English then the observed English of those who criticise.

This rather gives the lie to those who criticise other language English contributions, when (a) they cannot reply to the same dexteritiy in the native language they criticise the English of; and, (b) their personal ability to contribute in the native language of the person they are criticising.

Much more importantly, their use of their own native language (English) leaves much open to criticism.

Glass Houses and stones come to mind!

Before dismissing this post as emotional, please indulge me and read on.

I've been a member of the SETI community for some years, dedicating my computer's idle time to the analysis of inbound radio signal. I believe in this project, i believe that we're not alone. And i wanted to be a part of the search for "extraterrestrial intelligence".

When BOINC came along, i was enthusiastic. It seemed to broaden the rather narrow approach of the SETI project. I was all for it. But when i tried to install it, innumerable problems occurred (like selecting a project i wanted to dedicate my computer to) and i eventually gave up on it.

Two years on (and with a much more potent computer and a very broad broadband), i decided to give it another shot. I even managed to allocate the SETI project with BOINC (after around 20 attempts and 50 misleading error messages). I opened a new account, after the original SETI account password was rejected, and filled out the application form religiously, explaining at a length my motivation for and my views on the project. When i submitted it, the page was rejected because the password was "bad". I clicked the 'back' button, but everything i had written was lost.

Maybe these initial hitches are designed to separate the "useful" ones from the crap, but then i'm afraid you'll lose out on a huge number of potential participants. I'm not a computer illiterate, much the opposite (i've been dealing in IT for the past 20 yrs or so), but the way your site is designed, you're likely to attract only a fraction of the people you might want to -- and could easily include in your mega-project, if only you'd leave your esoteric ivory tower.

I'm still willing to -- actually i'm dying to... -- participate in this project. Only too human shortcomings should not hinder the development of something that has the potential of changing human history forever. Please don't let the inadequacies of the BOINC presentation (i'm not dissing the project itself) stand in the way of this breakthrough...

I'm pretty sure i'm speaking for many thousands of disappointed former and present SETI aficionados. The original SETI was accessible, easy to install, close to fool-proof, and very rewarding also for the participant. BOINC is opaque, frustrating, typically cryptic ivory-tower shit. If you want to cater only to the in-crowd (the scientific community?), fine. That's you're prerogative. But then don't wonder that science is being rejected by ever-growing portions of the population. BOINC is the right step in the wrong direction.

Sincerely,

Chipster,

Your participation is wanted and most welcomed! To get started, and you may haev already done these first steps, install BOINC. When you start BOINC, if you downloaded and installed BOINC version 5.8.11, then you'll get the new "simple" BOINC version. At some other point, you can go into the "Advanced View" which is the view I prefer. However, to get attached to SETI@home, click on the "Add Project" button about two-thirds the way down from the top of the "simple" BOINC window. A window will pop-up explaining it will now walk you through attaching a project to BOINC. Click Next. On the next screen, you'll need to enter the URL/website address for Seti@home. The URL you should type in (or copy and paste) is http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/. Click Next. It should then have to options to choose, one is to choose the option to setup a new account and the second is if you already have a Seti@home account. If you have not used Seti@home in BOINC before, I think you then have to setup a new account. Once you select that option, you'll need to enter the required information below that. When you've filled that information out, click Next. It will then attempt to create the new account for you and let you know whether you attached successfully or if it failed. Please note that there have been a few project that I have attached in the last few days that even though it showed that the attach failed, it really did attach successfully. At this point, you may want to click on the "Advance view" and look in the "Project" tab to make sure Seti@home is listed there. You can also check the "Messages tab" to view any successful, failed, or error messages. If you attached to Seti@home successfully, BOINC should start downloading WU (work units) to your computer, and you should see those downloading in the "tranfers" tab and you should see the new WU (work units) in the "task" tab.

If you run into any problems, please post back to these forum boards and either I or any other "cruncher" will be happy to help you out with any questions you have or problems you might encounter.

Good luck-

Torrey

This Entire Matter - from the Publicity Viewpoint - can only enhance the Reputation and possibility of greater Funding for SETI / BOINC Projects and as well for the SETI Institute . . .

That's great.

Question, who do I contact to search for the laptop I had stolen ?

Not a joke, I had a Compaq laptop stolen awhile back. Would love to get it back.

Can there be any good invitations/encouragements for seti members from different cultures and countries besides english speaking countries? Well it is clear anybody can post here but when people from non english speaking countries post here they make few grammatical mystakes and mostly you guys kind of ridicule them like asking to write correct english etc.


It's a good idea to have international forums. The hard part come in how to handle the flame wars that will eventually arise. I suppose we could require a volunteer to moderate before we open a board in each language. I'll add this to my internal suggestion box.


Eric it has been over a month passed since this talk what is the development on your Asgard High Council?

Thank You for the note, there are people that will help... Most of those monitor the Number Crunching Forum... If you feel that you are being abused the there is a way to report that, which will get attention...

So yes as everyone has to start somewhere, and it has not always been easy... Many can share good and bad experiences... As you have not mentioned specific problems it is hard to guess what might be happening...

You are welcome to email me:

al.setiboinc(at)gmail.com

just replace the (at) with the @ symbol and I will see wha we can find out or where to send you for help...

Regards

Pappa
