I joined in September of 2000 and crunched that until they started the first Boinc Beta then I switched to that until Boinc went public and there were no more WUs for beta I continued to crunch classic for a while on my wife's computer but before Classic closed down I switched to Boinc. I posted very little in the classic boards mainly when I had a problem with the software.
1,511 Work units
18,229 hours

I ran most of classic on an AMD K6-2 500 with 32MB of ram.



UNBELIEVABLE Eagle.

Ya beat me by ONE WU.

Joined 5th Sept 2004.
1,510 WU's.
6,597 hours.
I crunched on an AMD 800 KHz PC and an AMD 1.0 MHz PC and had temperature problems.
Over a period of approx. one month the CPU temps would rise from 68 to 78 Deg C and the CPU's would start to cut back on thermal protection so I had to replace the thermal grease between the CPU's and the heat sinks.



When my wife died I stopped crunching and switched off; I was at around 1490 WU's and didn't collect my 1500 WU certificate. The rest were pending credits that were later verified.

I used to run the cli through seti-driver- you could actually cache wu's!!!


Yes that was a boon when I discovered the Seti-Driver and could cache Woo's

I joined the project in '99, at this time I was registered with an other profile name (Cereal_Killer) but I lost access to my "space.com" mail address.
So, I started a new profile with my real name in '04, and a new team in '08.
Now, I have a brand new iMac C2D at 3,06 Ghz (OS X) and an old PC P3 at 930 Mhz (Win2K) running exclusively S@H 24/7.

Here I found my first footprints on the surface of a completely new and strange world: the world of BOINC in its early steps.....(at least they were for me)
It is crazy: The average CPU time for my WU´s was close to 22 hours/WU !!

I first joined in '01 after being introduced by the Librarian at school, she ran Classic on the Library's 3 computers. After only crunching 7 WUs in quite a long time i lost interest until '04 when i stumbled across an article about S@h in New Scientist. Came back and rejoined, this time with a faster 1.7Ghz PC, though i had to create a new account since i'd long since changed my email address and couldn't remember the password for my old account. Four years later and still going.

. . . Note: the Interview Link below (@ the Bottom) is from August 12, 1997


. . . the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) - 1998





SETI@home is a scientific experiment that will harness the power of hundreds of thousands of Internet-connected computers in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

You can participate by running a screensaver program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data.

There's a small but captivating possibility that your computer will detect the faint murmur of a civilization beyond Earth.



. . . ahhhhhh! the ol' deyz


edit: All Things Considered host Derek McGinty talks with Dan Werthimer, the chief Scientist for the SETI@home Project . . .



August 1997. Dan Werthimer was interviewed on NPR's All Things Considered.

Other stories this month included one by PC World.

The SETI@home mailing list grew to 10,000 people.

Senior members of the SETI Institute accepted invitations to sit on our advisory board . . .
