Message 1378895 - Posted: 9 Jun 2013, 11:41:38 UTC - in response to Message 1378883.

And after 14 years SETI have decided to cut your RAC by up to 50% and thats why I'm bailing out on this BS.

Please read Eric's answer to that conspiracy theory in message 1378218: it starts

The fall in credit was most definitely not deliberate. I wouldn't even know how to cause such a thing using the BOINC credit new. I had assumed it was a case of "fast machines report results first" which usually drives the granted credit to low values when a new version is released, but there should have been ample time for that to fix itself.

Of course the corollary is that I haven't figured out how to fix it yet.

After 14 years of dedication you want to bail just because of a credit issue which we hope is temporary?
I do hope you reconsider.
The science most of us are here for is the same, if not better.

Hang in there, buddy. The kitties are.

I'm down from about from around 560k down to 380k today.
And you won't see me jumping ship.

bill, if you're going to quote people, try to leave the [/quote] closing tag in so it looks as if you're replying to someone, you can always edit you post to fix issues like that.

Bailing is NOT an option for me. If this ship is going down, I'm going down with it.

Fell asleep at the wheel and missed my sign up day. Oh well. Also went away for 5 days and get back to find my RAC in the toilet! At least everybody else seems to be in the same toilet.

Today is my Personal SETI-Anniversary:

* 14 Years of Number Crunching * (i.e. since 4th of July, 1999)

Initially starting with 38,019 hours of "SETI@home classic CPU time",
resp. 1834 "SETI@home classic workunits" (still listed in addition to "Total credit"!).

Most time, number crunching was done only by a single computer, which has changed its look and feel from time to time. And some old and older "Certificates of Computation" are decorating the wall behind.

But next year...
I'LL BE BACK, wearing a special T-shirt! :-)
