Better late than never.. ;)
I remember seeing about seti@home on a TV program..
Maybe "Beyond 2000"? Used to love that show!

Anyway, been quite a ride with you all. Amazing its been 14 years already!

I just noticed this thread and realized that I am a member of this club too.

There are so many distributed computing projects now.

For years I've been contributing to other projects and as a result I have accumulated embarrassingly few credits compared to the other people in this thread.

I think I'll make it my New Year's Resolution to try to catch up.

Best wishes to everyone.

It's not quite my 14th Anni yet but because the thread was not used for nearly a year the auto-lock kicked in, then when it was unlocked and a post wasn't made within 24 hours, it auto-locked again!! Don't you just love our Seti scripts :-))

I'll post again later.

p.s. Thanks Mods.

I'm a month away from having been doing this for 15 years! Only this year did I build a dedicated rig (with 2 nVidia Titans) which has done more work in a few months than every other machine I've had combined did in 14 years...

OK, I say 'dedicated' I may play the odd game on it now and then :)

And next year I'll upgrade the graphics cards again or build another machine and bump it all up again.

Fun, isn't it?

OK, I lied, I actually looked at the numbers and outlander has done a shade under half the total of all the other machines (or about 1/3 of the absolute total)

But still!

Let's just keep this thread as the 15th one, after all the locking and unlocking:)))

[edit] I'll change the thread title...

[editΒ²] Done... Hope you don't mind Chris, come to think of it...

So where do people post who have been here for 14 years?

I thought that was the idea of reopening this thread, I'm confused.

This was the 14 year thread, but for some reason it became renamed. Now that the old 15 year thread is reopened, why not reverse that strange renaming.

Especially since the first post in this thread says:

"Happy 14th Anniversary to the many crunchers who have been at it for all these years."
