wow, that's true...

For more then 13 years now I've been crunching away for Seti@Home. All these people here seen the classic WU's pass by, we've seen the "birth" of BOINC and with all the ups and downs this project has seen we are all still here :-)

Proud to be a member of this project which will certainly one day will identify E.T. and prove to the world that we are not alone in this massive universe !

Member since June 11th,1999

Happy Halloween everyone!

Wow. 13 years, 1 million credits, a few long dead PCs, 2 accounts and one Seti-Classic to Boinc rollover closer to getting that toaster:)

Here's to another 13 years with more Kepler data, more bandwidth, more Setizens, more parts of the sky being scanned, more Nitpicker results, more FLOPs, more more MORE!:)

I might just migrate over to my Seti Classic Account, one day... Or maybe I'll be able to merge the two, in 13 years:)

I am sure that in another 13 year some alien civilization will discover our planet & how tasty humans are for food.

Only 12-1/2 years for me.
But I guarantee......

If 'the signal' has not been found in a another 50 years or so.......
I shall still be here. Supposing I have not passed on by then.

13 years today!

A year ago I finally reached 1 million SETI credits.
This past year I doubled to 2 million SETI credits.
And became a SETI "1 percent-er" according to BOINCStats LOL

Amazing looking back at my various hardware to see what I use today.
I just acquired an i7 system with a GPU. Up to now its all been CPU.
So expect great things in the coming year <grin>.

Slow and steady and glad to be a part of it all...

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


Ok..lessee..If my ship can make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs...
I'll get back to ya..


Okay, to give you an example ...
.. The Television Broadcast of The Beatles receiving the MBE back in 1965, would have reached CAPELLA in 2007.
Capella is approximately 41 Light-Years from earth, and is in the Constellation Auriga.

Well, so I've read.

So, only 2 hours more until accomplishing 13 years...

Back in 1999, after some initial tests on a SUN Ultra 1 machine, that one:



was crunching ... okay ... was "nibbling" the galactic noise in my first own seti machine and processes one workunit in 5-6 days.

Coming to this post late, don't have time to wander though the forums as much as I would like to. Been crunching since 18 May 1999...

I started on May 17th PST or the 18th UTC. My son started it for me under his name and e-mail addy. Crunshed a wooping 24 units. After a comp crash, I came back under a new account.
If he could just remember his addy from back then, I would bring the account back.
Pluto will always be a planet to me.
