During the recent outage the machines I run BOINC/SETI@Home on crunched their 1,000,000th Cobblestone (or whatever they want to be called)

In honour of this and as a merry Christmas to the guys I made a small donation. It's not much, but it's something.

And I've just noticed; I've been running SETI@Home in some form or another on a varying number of Macs for 13 years, today! Even more reason for celebration!

So my hat's off and I raise a glass (well, mug of coffee, it's early) to the team; Dr. David P. Anderson, Dan Werthimer, Dr. Eric Korpela, Andrew Siemion, Jeff Cobb and by no means least the tireless Matt Lebofsky who seems to do most of the heavy lifting!

Grats. If it wasn't for the outage I would have been hitting that mark around New Years.

Thank you, I shall.

Hopefully in the new year I'll be adding 4 Mac Minis and a couple more iMacs to the mix.

It'd be wrong to not be concerned as all bar 1 they're at work; wouldn't it? :)

Truth is, they're all machines that are on for other reasons and SETI@Home is merely a thing they do when they're bored.

I wanted to hit the first Mill on the day the World Ended. It looks like I'm going to miss it by a few thousand though. That's all right, I've decided it's even more intriguing to claim I hit a Mill the day after the World Ended...

Now that I've hit a Mill in 10 weeks, I'll have to investigate reclaiming my old account from the early days. I'm positive it's my old account, but, remembering my e-mail address & password from 13 years ago? Ha Ha Ha....

There's a small chance I can break 1 million by the end of the year but it looks more likely I'll do it Jan 2nd. Unless I get an unflux of wingmen finishing and validating a fair chunk of my units that are waiting for them. That could put me over before the 1st.
