GoodMorningAfternoonNight to all of you affected thusly by the rotation of this planet.


But but but, I thought we stood still and the sun went around us? Next you'll be telling me the earth isn't flat ....

That's only for your part of the UK...The rest of us are on a trip around the sun.

You are welcome, Siran!...I plan to join you at 1 million in 280 days or so.

Greetings Dan,

If you got that "280 days" value from BOINCstats, it is not realistic. I recently found out that BOINCstats reads what your RAC is from the update it gets. It then does some sort of calculations on it to reduce your REAL RAC and that is what BOINCstats says your real RAC is. No! I don't think so! If they get the stats update from SETI and it says my RAC is 2000, my RAC is 2000, not 1475 or some arbitrary number BOINCstats THINKS it is.

If I were to go by what BOINCstats prediction was for my milestone, I would still be waiting. Last time I checked, they said I would not reach 1M until tomorrow. HAHA! Fooled them! Proved them WRONG! :D

Dan, I suspect that you will be reaching 1M much sooner than 280 days.

One last thing, BOINCstats lists what your real RAC was at the time of last update, plus their fictitious RAC. They predict from their fictitious RAC.

Which reminds me, I still need to change all my stats images for our team projects on the website... Yes, I'm dumping BOINCstats. :)

@Monday: Thanks! :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

Greetings,

Just so's you know:


Credit per SETI account: 1,006,309
Credit per BOINCstats..: 1,001,320 (from last update)

RAC per SETI account: 3426
RAC per BOINCstats..: 3209 (from last update)
RAC per BOINCstats..: 1597 (what BOINCstats says my REAL RAC is)


I fail to see the logic behind their "calculated" RAC value and calling it REAL. It is NOT real. They also predict that I won't reach 1,006,309 until sometime Friday. Bah hahahahahaha! Already got there! :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

That was an "on the fly" wild guess...I was too rushed this morning to go to BOINCstats for their projection...

Any projection like that cannot take into account variables that could occur such as project downtime...computer downtime or a change in crunching priorities...

Oh, ok. My bad. :(

You got that right. But, I say that the REAL values should be used anyway, not some arbitrarily calculated, deflated value such as that which BOINCstats uses.

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

It's not the extension cord but the WiFi router. That's what stops you moving your desktop around the house and garden (yard)

I got rid of most of the extension cables when I did the Eletric Kitty power center upgrade........

So what do the enlightened English call an "umbilical cord"?

Hey, a man who speaks English. Yay!

So what do the enlightened English call an "umbilical cord"?

Uncle Chris doesn't seem to get out much.


Hi Cousin Dan, where would you reccommend I go?
