You can also have SETI, as Back Up Project, ducks to avoid
flying objects, coming from my GF's direction ;^)


But keep on crunching......

If I’m reading the stats page correctly, you might try again as there are still plenty needing processed. If a manual request doesn’t work maybe try a reset or detach/reattach.

And what does "ORBIT" have to do with Seti@home crunchers ???

More than nothing, as explained by Forum Moderator uli in this thread.

As John stated, its a backup project. It rarely gives out work. Its almost like LHC in that aspect. The mission of Orbit@home is:
Mission

The mission of orbit@home is to apply distributed computing to the study of Solar System dynamics. Distributed computing provides an unmatched amount of computational power, enabling qualitatively new research levels in terms of detail and accuracy.

Many are the open problems that we plan to study with orbit@home. At first, we will focus on Near Earth Asteroid (NEA) research, focusing into the areas below:

* NEA search strategies: we are studying a search strategy that maximizes the volume covered in the space of the orbital elements of the NEAs; its implementation requires the availability of a very significant amount of computing power, making the distributed computing approach the perfect candidate; [abstract]
* NEA impact hazard monitoring: we are studying the applicability and advantages of using a distributed computing system to monitor the impact hazard by NEAs; when compared to standard systems, the distributed computing approach provides better scalability, responsiveness, and accuracy. [abstract]

Public outreach and education represents also a very important aspect of the system, because the public provides the main distributed computing power and participates in the science being studied.

I am running 6 BOINC projects on my Linux box, so I am never out of work: SETI, Einstein,AQUA, QMC,CPDN,QuantumFIRE and LHC as a plus. Now LHC seems to have spawned a LHC+ which should be the CERN-VM dr.Ben Segal of CERN spoke about in the BOINC workshop and Citizen Cyberscience Summit in London but I am awaiting confirmation.

What with the current outage scheduling, I see it as a courteous way of informing crunchers of other projects to keep their systems busy.

And in my view, that is a good thing.

Might want to read the whole thread Robert....Uli posted early on...

Quoting Uli-"This is homebase for most Setizens who listen. Have a backup project."

Thanks. Manual didn't work so detached/reattached & got a couple 100......

If 'E.T. isn't that friendly afterall, we can kick them back into ORBIT. . . .

Swibby Bear,

Thanks for the heads up. It's been a while since I've had work from that project (Orbit).

LHC@home is giving work only to Windows users. As a Linux user I am looking forward to CERN-VM on which dr.Ben Segal is working. He has presented it in the BOINC Workshop in London and his slides are available on the BOINC site.

According to the recent News on their front page from Pasquale Tricarico "Orbit@Home in Production Mode with Real Data".

At the time of this post, they have:

Results ready to send 277,817
Results in progress 112,770

Work is available for Windows (98 or later), Linux and Mac OS 10.4 or later.
With the most recent batch, they have reduced initial replication to 2, quorum 2.
The deadlines have also been reduced to 3 days.

Looks like Orbit was inundated and is since off line.
So not to be alone, the BOINC domain took a nose dive as well. :)

Maybe the ISP shut them down for transfering to much data.

orbit.psi.edu responds to pings, so my guess is that the database died. We/they have too many volunteers. :-) :-)
