Is this not like 'hijack' an other project forum? X-D

Nein Sutaru. This is homebase for most Setizens who listen. Have a backup project.

In this house, backup projects are forbidden. Anyone under my roof crunching anything else than SETI, will be thrown out onto the streets, with her/his computer, and other belongings.

It's SETI or nothing, until ET is found, interrogated, and dealt with according to galactic law.

What if ET comes riding in on a local asteroid? It would be good to know before the apocolypse(?).

We at Einstein@home have found a new pulsar processing Arecibo data. A second one is coming (a binary system).

I have

Einstein@home
Milkyway@home
lhc@home
Rosetta

My GPU's crunch seti 24/7, but my cpu's share resources...
Seti is and always will be my primary project, but for all the crunching, there have been no results, and I have no idea if the data has actually achieved anything so I do other projects to try and maximise my contribution to science in case seti draws blank

lhc@home? why not TSP... Neither have work. Orbits Is a nice project to hook onto when you can get the work. I got a few so I'll be happily crunching away on Orbits and Seti

You haven't been here too long enough to experience a month or so of downtime without notice. I think you can still read it in the news thread about the downtime.

That is when I'm forced to add another project. And recently that 0 resource share came to life when we needed it back then.

My seetings is:
CPU
main->back off project
WCG->Seti

GPU
main->back off project
Seti->gpugrid

If and only if all goes kaboom i'll run FAH so i'll maintain my boinc projects short.

I don't care if the downtime is a month or a year. I will not add any backup projects anyhow. If the down time is a month or two, then I have my computers shut off for that time.

And I joined SETI in 99 too, crunched classic for a year or two, then I was gone until 2008, but I lost the email address I used back then, so I can't merge the accounts. I tried every possible email address I might have used, but no luck.

your preferences are in direct contradiction to the admins wishes. IF you choose to have idle time thats entirely up to you. The admins want you to do more than Seti if you want all your CPU/GPU cycles to mean something.if its idle it should just be shutdown. Backup projects are always a good thing.

Personally I will not do BOINC for BOINCS sake. If there is another project I wish to do work for that is one thing. But personal reasons, i will take no part in genetic engineering or anything that might be used towards that goal.

And with the inability to share nice with CPDN, SETI it is!! The computers run anyway, and if there is idle time between tasks it is not harmful. Saves a few watts.

I do of course have to protect middle earth as well as finding ET!! ;)

I haven't had any idle time since I came back in 2008, unless I myself have chosen to shut down my computers for other reasons. That has happened, but I still had WU's on them, WU's that I crunched and sent in before they expired when I started up the computers again, maybe a week or two later.

If I haven't experienced a lack of WU's for two years, then I'd say that backup projects are not needed, at least not for that reason.

The recent BOINC workshop in London has posted a number of presentations about BOINC projects. I read them all and printed the Einstein slides.
