...as people think we are the source of the SETI problem.


Then they are barking up the wrong tree (they're wrong). That makes no sense. Until the day Seti can scan the (whole) sky in real-time and get the data analyzed in less/quicker than real-time there is no such thing as too many volunteers (mega-cruncher or not)... I'm guessing that's not gonna happen in our lifetime:)


But Juan, since you asked over in News I'm sure you could set Seti Beta at 1% and had you had that setting a week ago, I'm betting your cache of Seti/Seti-Beta WUs would be much better now. The same goes for all the high-rollers.

(This is a different scenario to the 0% Mark has mentioned)

??? Sorry realy donĀ“t understand, if the Splitters (both AP & MB) are off there are no generation of WU so there are no way to refill the caches. We will remain in dryland until they are restarted.

Ah, sorry I'll try to explain. It's a bit complicated, this is Boinc after all;)

First let me say again that this will help you in the NEXT catastrophe, not right now.

I'm pretty new to Beta, but so far it has more work to give away and is easier to access than Seti Main. Also if you give it a 1% share that doesn't mean you will get 99 Seti tasks and 1 Beta. If Boinc can't get Seti Main it will get what it can from Beta. So when things go wrong here as they often do you may get for example, 80 Seti and 20 Beta ratio. Things after that get a bit complicated as Boinc will owe time to Seti. But if you think of things in months rather than hours it actually kinda works, no matter how much we LOVE to poke fun at Dr. Anderson!:D

I think the best way for you to understand this is to try Beta on just one of your PCs (maybe one you have daily access to). But like I said, this won't work right now:

I'm running Seti(100) and Einstein(0) on My gpus, I've set it and it works, that's all I need to worry about in that regard.

Yep, SETI 100% here and 0% for my 3 backup projects.

Plus having each of my PC's being attached to different venues I have different settings for each backup projects on those venues. ;)

It's worked well for me over the last few years anyway.

Cheers.
