I wonder which will finish first, WU 1000000000 or the final Astropulse v505 ?

Interesting the 1billionth unit has gone two newby's, neither has yet reached their first anniversary. I wonder if they realise how honoured they are.

Host 6138397 is a newby, and I'm sure it doesn't realize anything. The user has been around a few years, but with 33 active hosts probably doesn't have time to note such details.

It's called poetic justice. Put it in the newspaper.

If I may digress, I'd like to return to the thread's topic for a moment. Seems to me this is a significant milestone in the project's history. Oh, sure, there may be some glitches in the history of the numbering system, etc., but I'm willing to call it a billion, and I think a celebration or some recognition of the event should be considered. Hope someone calls the staff's attention to this event.

Thanks to Cosmic_Ocean for calling this to our attention.

Did they start the workunit count a new when switching over to BOINC or pick up from where we had left off? Either way a billion is still an impressively large number.

I'm not entirely sure on that one. I want to say there's been enough mention of it over the years that I should know the answer though. If it's not the same database that we started with, I know the data from Classic did/must have been imported into the current one at some point.

Maybe if one of the staff mentions this milestone tomorrow, somebody can inquire in that thread and see if it gets seen/read and answered.

I wonder if the two people doing the billionth WU,and their teams will get a mention on
the front of the home page?

It is after all,a bit of an honour!

Fair comment, I had not looked that closely, just at the host join dates. I see that one of the hosts has now crunched and returned the 1 billionth WU.

The Billionth WU has had more success so far than the 999,999,999th http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=999999999 which has 3 CUDA -12 Errors so far !

Did they start the workunit count a new when switching over to BOINC or pick up from where we had left off? Either way a billion is still an impressively large number.

From the Science status page, the science database has:

Workunits 1,141,579,552
Results 1,127,430,548

If the daily return rate hold steady at about 770,000/day we should hit 2 billion in about 3 years then. More than we will hit a steady 1 million per day before that occurs. Bringing things closer to 2 years instead.

Well the closest I've gotten to that number is 1,000,696,872. I suspect that those of you who do hundreds of WUs a day may be a little closer, but I receive/report usually about 10/day total.

Except we are about to go offline for a day or two,
i think that may mess with the averages a little . . . .

The good thing about averages is that one or two samples out of a large amount don't effect things greatly. As things are processed "offline", in regard to the servers, the servers uptime should not effect the average amount of tasks per day very much.

Maybe we should start a pool to try and guess the date workunit 2000000000 will be created.
