Message 1229988 - Posted: 10 May 2012, 12:58:53 UTC

I noticed that there have been recent posts to various threads from people that started in April of 1999 so I thought I would begin this thread to continue the tradition begun and continued by others in years gone by. Happy Anniversary to all qualifiers.

I can't believe that it has been that long. Let's see, radio signals have traveled how far during that period? <grin>

yes. Hi.
Any good news on the Nvidia driver / gpu problems? this could end my participation if it continues.
Pretty good numbers for only ever having run seti/boinc on my one home computer I use for everything else too.

You may get more help if you make a new thread or post in on of the existing one about it. This is about 13 year anniversary in Seti.

That's the problem with people who want instant results in this quest.

13 Light Years?

How many planets 13 Light Years away?

Not too many!

Please: Let's not get into the science of light years and ages of Alien Civilizations.

This thread is about 13 YEARS!!!

Well, if on the first day we had received a message from a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri C, had taken a month to analyze it and formulate a reply, they followed up (another month), and we replied to that (another month), it would be getting there right about now.

I'm apologizing to anyone who thought I was attacking them.

I guess one (I mean me) should think before submitting.

Done SETI Since August 1999; am I supposed to be HERE, taking up SPACE ?!

For one, I don't even know how to put my "Bragging Rights Bumper Sticker" up here!

I DID FIX my 2x GPU GeForce 460 YESTERDAY, to run "Warp Speed" again, after trying to get HELP here, crying / P....ing into everybodys Motherboards since mid April

HOWEVER, within (PAST) 24 Hours, ran "OUT of GPU FUEL" !!!

As "The Man" said in "Shawshank Redemption": "This is a CONSPIRACY......." !!!!

Running up to 4 Systems 24 / 7, accumulated so far 7.3 Mio + total; of which 6 Mio since Jan 2011 with this SSETI Unit.

It was DESIGNED by local COMPUTER STORE PROFESSIONALS and my "Customer Wishes" to do 100'000 SETI Credits / 24 Hrs. +; however IT never quite achieved 30'000 !

And now here we are, seemingly "Castrated by the "Dark Forces" down to 13k !

With that kind of "Progress" in 13 Years, NO WONDER the "Aliens" are HIDING from US, laughing themselves silly no doubt about our technical, financial, industrial, political and YES, RELIGIOUS PROBLEMS !

VOLTAIRE (Google It !) on his DEATH BED said it best as the Answer to the initial "Last Rights Questions"; "Do You renounce SATAN....." ?

Voltaire's Answer: "Why, at this time, would I want to make a new Enemy" ?!!!

So, did I just do that ?

Murphy's Law; "Friends come and go, Enemy's accumulate" !

Keep crunching "The Hell" out of Things SETI; the CREATOR has got to be infinitely grander than what we know or can imagine !

My personal fervent HOPE is, that the first "Law of Thermodynamics" has a RELIGIOUS FLY in it's SWILL:

Energy can NOT be created, NOR destroyed !

CORRECT from a Standpoint like ALBERT EINSTEIN !

Incorrect per Voltaire or Contemporary:

"If there is no GOD, then he needs to be INVENTED" !

NOW, Who exactly wrote things like "The Bible", on Stone or Pergament, with Plasma Beam or Ball Point Pen ..... ?!

"There is nothing NEW under the Sun, but I do believe ..... or else we get what we have now; "The WRATH" of the 7 deadly Sins, one of which is GREED, as in Wall Street and Europe and Russia and China and...... !

Now, go ahead, make my Day and Dawn, CRUNCH me !

Got it. Except it was from the TV show and not
the movie. Trick question. Have some free work units anyway.
