Jocularity! Jocularity!

Free WU's if you get the movie reference right.

To be specific, in "Movie Tonight" when the film breaks for the 2nd or 3rd time, Hawkeye borrows Mulcahy's hat and announces "the moment no one has been waiting for, the Father Mulcahy sound-alike contest." The hat is passed around and various people imitate him. Potter just says "Jocularity, jocularity!"

Then, a few episodes later in "Margaret's Marriage," as the smoker is breaking up, Mulcahy says "Jocularity, jocularity" somewhat drunkenly.

(Since this happened in the 5th season, Trapper was gone. J. Mercer forfeits half his free WUs.)

Yes, I watch way too much MASH.

Very nice. I first started around Apr/May, I also think at one point I lost that account's password.

Edit: Ah, not just that account's password, but email address, too. So I was never able to recover it. :-(

Still here and crunching....I've been through...let's see.....5 computers I believe. I'm still surprised when friends drop by and happen to notice BOINC manager on the screen and ask about the Project...I'd have thought every one I know would be aware of what I do with spare cycles by now.

Today is my 13th anniversary in participating in SETI@HOME. It all started by reading an article online.

Well, 13 years and two days.

And 119 posts.

Have been crunching non stop, though not exclusively Seti.

Was even crunching before Seti, but that was at distributed.net and even earlier projects.

Also a little folding has been done, but mostly on my PS3.

you know 13 years 13 posts, like Apollo 13 launching at 13:13. I figure one post for every year of service. But I do read a lot of the posts in here.

May, June, October, I see... would be very interesting who's the "oldest" user, possibly one of the S@H scientists ? ;-)


Gotcha by 2 hours and 3 minutes.

They record May 17th as the "official" public release of the original Seti@Home, but there are people that were on before that date. If you go to the classic site you can view the Registration Index for Active Users & find the "first ones". Then you can use something like the User By Date Stats from the stat sites to see which of them are still active.

The oldest & most active use I can find is Niteryder.
