Message 1058326 - Posted: 21 Dec 2010, 4:44:38 UTC - in response to Message 1058318.

you are all lucky as far as internet speed goe's here in the uk we have the British telecom it siad i get upto 10 mb but it best is 1.8 m.b and its drops down to 500 bytes sometimes


If you can, and I know their cable doesn't reach all parts of the UK, go to Virgin. I'm on 20Mb and that's what I get, testing to UK servers. Last time I tested to SF got >18Mb.


Agreed. I pay for a 10Mb service from Virgin and I get 9.5Mb on average. While not the cheapest out there, I like the reliability of the service. The only problem with it having all coming down the same cable, if it does go down I lose broadband, TV and phone. Some places now offer a 50Mb service and I also know in Bournemouth a company has installed a fibre network in the existing sewers, and offer a 100Mb service (Think it's called Cable City, but don't quote me on that).

Another option, is zen internet zen.co.uk they also do fibre upto 40Gb, you do need BT phone.

...

At the top end, there are 82 users with an RAC > 30,000. They represent 0.0546 % of the active users, and contribute 9.7 % towards the total daily RAC.
...


Whoa! Only 82 Cruncher do 10% of all Work on SETI?

...and i'm one of this addicted Cruncher. LOL

If there needs to be a limit, then the only thing that seems fair to me is to do it per host, not per user.

DSL speed?

I have DSL light, 384/64 kbit/s or 48/8 KB/s, you could imagine what this is for a 'problem' to feed my ~ 70,000 and ~ 20,000 S@h-RAC machines with enough WUs?

I can't get more here in my village..

Quite right, and it is done that way by BOINC. The same kinds of ratios apply, the top 20% of hosts do about half the work, the top 4% of hosts do about a quarter of the work.

No limits......other than imposed by Boinc.

No further comment shall be available at this time.

See my RAC for further information.


Quite a good point indeed.

Message 1058713 - Posted: 22 Dec 2010, 12:32:20 UTC - in response to Message 1058663.

My ISP is housed next door, about 50 meters, so my theoretical 10Mbit DownLoad
and 768Kbit Upload, is also the real speed. Telephone, also is VOIP
And no limit on Down/UpLoads.
Also an ADSL 2+ signal, for Digital TV, 16Mbit/sec.

Four companies do give a nice competition.

The 3 QUAD's have an Ethernet cable, TV also, only my LT goes WireLess, WLAN.

Only having UPLoad problems: As of 22 Dec 2010 12:00:06 UTC,

BOINC master database carolyn Running
BOINC replica database jocelyn Running
SETI@home science database oscar Disabled
Astropulse science database marvin Running
data-driven web pages thinman Running.

UP&D'Load servers are disabled, like all others. Forgot we still have a 3 day
outage :)

We need wait someone of the SETI@home crew comes to the lab and look to the problem (if it's not possible to fix it via remote control).
