I know you're having issues, but what will happen to my work that has been processed and is sitting on my three computers waiting to sent to SETI? I'm new here so be kind. Thank you ...

My eight boxes here ran out of work last week much to my surprise.

I read all the messages about the down time and why so I gave them a holiday (powered off for a few days).

So I started this box today (we are EST +12hrs)as the main seti site says it will be back (an I see it is) but the local scheduler is still delaying 3 hours each time and raising but I guess that is because I am here in the middle of Asia AKA 3rd world, and not on any big pipe to get all the complete work into the server so no point in turning the rest on until at least one box get updated.

PS: ET that is the hold message you are hearing on that phone call..

I joined SETI just after Stardate or Planetary Report wrote the report on SETI. I imediately joined. I think that was in 8/99. But I seem to have lost credit for several years. How sad.
You guys that volunteer to struggle through this horrific problem, my hat is off to you. I do not have the knowledge to offer any results. Just go for it, and I will patiently await operations again.
Reading all the comments, I see I am not involved in MANY and would like to be involved. Where do I go to get logged in besides WCG?


What type of BOINC projects? The full list is too long to send, but here are most of those related to astronomy:

Albert@Home (warning - alpha test)
http://albert.phys.uwm.edu/

Einstein@Home
http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/

MilkyWay@Home
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/

Cosmology@Home
http://www.cosmologyathome.org/


Also, here's someone's try at a full list:
Choosing BOINC Projects
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php


I believe I've seen a thread for recovering your original start date - you might want to read recent messages in all the forums here and see if you can find it.

I've lost the information on exactly when I started, but it was either 2002 or earlier.

Just picked up 80 lost tasks, in 4 groups of 20. Most going back to mid-October. So, looks like some catching up happening....slowly but surely. Tis a shame that Einstein may be right...we CANNOT go as fast as the speed of light. Bit of kibbles better than water alone.

Well I was really hoping to break a personal record and get 2M wu's for the year. But looks like I'm gonna come up short now. Got machines working other projects because they can't send, report or pull new units. Hopefully things are up and stable before xmas so I can try again next year. Meanwhile, you folks enjoy your holiday - you've earned it.

This is from the front page.
Restoring the database to a point in time just before the power outage is taking longer than expected. The new estimate for being back online is Wednesday, Dec 5.


I don't understand why anyone should lose Recent Average Credit, when these outages occur? Not our faults.
I had 265 Recent Average Credit back when, and now next to nothing. It's a shame this had to happen. I only run one computer. Happy Holidays, to Everyone!

That is a much bigger number than 265. Are you confusing the average credit per day with total credit?

I've been crunching since 2000 and lately have noticed that the servers keeps going down more frequently. Instead of leaving the seti project, I've joined another boinc project so my computers doesn't crunch "idle time".
When the seti servers seem to be back online, i usually set my other boinc projects not to recieve any more work.

Good luck with fixing your servers as we all will be waiting patiently. :-)

I haven't gotten any new tasks since Nov. 29.

This note was on the front page since 30th November and is still there now!!


Unscheduled Power Outage
Power to the north east side of the Berkeley campus and the Space Science Lab was interruped this morning at about 16:30 UTC until about 17:30. The cause of the outage has not yet been determined. We're working to get our databased back in working order. Current estimate is that we'll be back online on Tuesday, Dec 4. UPDATE (Dec 4) : Restoring the database to a point in time just before the power outage is taking longer than expected. The new estimate for being back online is Wednesday, Dec 5.


Due to the long outage new tasks will be in short supply so patience is required!!

Tell the truth now. There is nothing wrong with your equipment. It's because the extra-terrestrials set their status to 'AFK'. (yeah I know...wishful thinking)

Take your time fixing the problem. We been waiting for over 50 years to hear a voice from 'out there'. A few days offline won't kill us. We are a patient lot. :)
