I just find it totally amazing the way some people freak out when Seti goes off air for a while. We all know it will come back, and in the meantime we can do some useful crunching elsewhere. I just don't understand the angst, and the "I'm so out of here" posts .......





Very true. Since 2007 that has been two multi-week outages due to equipment issues, but Dr K and the folks in the lab always manage to get it sorted out. :)


@ Julie: try PrimeGrid. In theory they ought to never be out of work.



It's just the idea behind Orbit@home I like so much...

It's very upsetting when Seti goes offline :)

Its teribile,
how are people who are so uterly miffed by seti`s downtime supozed to complain and spout `me iz outa hear` if the forums are also down and stop them spouting forth their worth and letting us know that they are not here anymore,
Oh what fun it iz to be a member of the most tecknological species on earth.
And then some wunder why ET dont wana talk to us ;¬)

Never say never, Vic, but it's maybe unlikely. Fairly certain Rob, I'll soon be told otherwise I'm sure.
