This is a voluntary effort that seems to have little support from Berkeley. SO WHAT!!!

This effort started almost 13 years ago, with 150,000 past and present volunteers giving their time and effort in this attempt. What other Project can say this?

Kudos to the people in the Lab. They also, without sufficient support from Berkeley, given their time and effort, even during Thanksgiving. Thank you Eric and the others.

One last and I think most important observation. Look at the posts in this and other Threads. You will see many, many, many persons grumbling, who have large credits, and no Green Star next to their names. They have never given a penny to maintain or expand the effort in the lab! Look deeper and you will see that many of these people have spent large amounts of money on their computer(s). We are now seeing the result of the vast increase in the power of our (Volunteer) computers without the same happening in the Lab. To all those without a ‘Green Star’ give a few dollars, it won’t hurt.

I just saw a show on this several days ago, so I am real new to all this but it is a pleasure to help where and when I can.

Good luck isolating the scheduler problem. ;)

I wonder, if any of the users actually find an extraterrestrial broadcast, would he or she be notified? ;)

Also, I heard Dr. Michio Kaku. Theoretical Physicist from the New York University,MA talk about maybe we're searching in the wrong way (narrow-band), so that the frequencies we search are narrow-banded,and that we need a better broadwave algorithm for the data from the radio-antennas. Is this true? And is it posaible to do something about this problem, so that searches will be more effective etc in the future? ;-)
Happy hunting, fellow believers!

Can we keep to the topic of "Thankful for...", and not head off into the long grass of digression.

The signal capture software is capable of stepping though multiple fq. if tracking the same spot in the sky for vary long however the clients cant handle this yet.this has been fine up to now because Arecibo can not track, but green bank will early next year also green bank will be targeting planetary systems with planet's in the Goldilocks zone increasing the chance of finding e.t. signal by thousands of times so if you have been squirreling away nickels and dimes for a god cause now is the time!

May be time to add a new gpu newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150561
for $150 they had a similar card for 119 a day or two age.
Just save your penny's and wait for a good sale my numbers were under 1,000,000 until a month and a half ago.
And it will always be cheaper later, good crunching to you.
Also if grandparent tell grandchildren need new video card conversely if grandchild tell grandparent need new video card.
and if you look a use hd5570 can be had for less than $25 and it has 400 streaming processors may not keep up with my hd6870 with 1600 but 4 will come close happy, shopping season.
AND AS ALWAYS TO ERIC AND THE GANG MANY THANKS FOR ALL THE HARD WORK.
AND GIVE US A WISH LIST MAYBE WE CAN MAKE YOUR SEASON A LITTLE HAPPIER!

I am very happy indeed to 100% endorse Uli's post. Eric works his butt off for this project, and he couldn't have a more supportive wife than Angela. Thanks Uli.

Could a seti-message be hidden amongst the server crashes? Could they be morse-like code (e.g. long crashes vs short crashes)?
