1) Message boards : News : Nebula: Completing the SETI@home pipeline (Message 1830131)
Posted 24 days ago by Profile Crunch3rProject Donor
OK, i've read the whole "nebula" link and to me it seems that nebula will finally conclude and finnish S@H. Which is past due....

Given the fact, that Seti@Home never analysed the data send back from it's clients, it's about time we arrive at a conclusion.

Special thanks goes out to Bruce Allen, who i've personally had the honor to meet at an einstein@home event back in 2006.

He's a great guy and without a doubt, one of the most interactive boinc project admins i had the pleasure to meet in person or work with/talk to.

Hooray, we have a humanoid! I see this is a project that interested them too. You ask who is he? Yes, that's it http://clip2net.com/s/3z78uot they are already here! Why do they look for in space? )







This is a joke! )))


Damn it , you figured it out! I've been hiding on earth for a bunch of years,without getting noticed.

I guess i've got to find a new hiding place :(

I would have posted earlier except for an unwarranted intervention.

I'd like to know why there's a "migration" from SETI@Home towards other SETI projects, specifically if those other SETI projects are considered more promissing or if it's just for the funding via "breakthrough listen".


I'd like to know why you are so negative about Seti@Home?

Signed,

Chris S
(remember me??)


What are you talking about ? Didn't i post that i'm quite happy that AEIs cluster gets used for finally analysing SETI@Home data ???

Regarding my question, without it you'd never have known about the AEI cluster being used in the first place.

I'd guess you'd like to be left in the dark about the data that got preprocessed by "us" and just ignore the fact that it wasn't analysed for years.

Besides all that, no i don't remember you and i don't care about what you got to say.

P.S. Stop spamming my inbox, posting personal threats.

Without having some sort of NITPCKR running 24/7, analysing data REALTIME (o r as close as we can get), it’s a waste of out time anyways.

Would’nt you agree ?



We've been very bad at telling you what's up with the NTPCkR. Although it's not politically expedient to say so, Breakthrough has actually left SETI@home even more resource starved than it was before. People that were working primarily on SETI@home have transitioned to Breakthrough, and thus far, no funding from Breakthrough has been directed at SETI@home and we don't currently have the funding to replace them. We're hoping that will change, but have few options how to bring it about. In essence we're in the same place we've always been, barely getting by, but with even fewer people on the job.

That doesn't mean we've made no progress, though. It became apparent that our available hardware was insufficient for running the nitpicker. What has happened is that Bruce Allen (of Einstein@home) has allowed us to use some time on a supercomputer at the Albert Einstein Institute for Gravitational Physics in Hannover to run the nitpicker, which we've renamed Nebula because it's no longer "near real time". We've done some tests on 1% of the database, and estimate that a full run of the database will take about 5 days, and we plan to do such a run at least 4 times a year. If we overstay our welcome at AEI we'll probably have to search out cloud resources for the runs.

I'll try to get some more info out about that in the near future. The port is mostly complete, apart from tuning up the RFI rejection. Fingers crossed we'll have some candidate news by the end of the summer.


That's kind of a bad news/good news scenario. First of all i'm quite happy that AEI(and Bruce of course) allowed SETI@Home to make use of use their cluster, at least that makes sure that data is beeing analysed at all.

However, i'm quite puzzled that "breakthrough listen" had such a bad impact on SETI@Home.

I'd like to know why there's a "migration" from SETI@Home towards other SETI projects, specifically if those other SETI projects are considered more promissing or if it's just for the funding via "breakthrough listen".

Recently the NSF announced its intent to start the process which could lead to the partial shutdown, mothballing, or complete disassebly of the Arecibo Observatory. As most of you know, this is not a new discussion in the scientific community. Several years ago we had asked you write letters to Congress in hopes of averting this fate.

A petition has been started on whitehouse.gov to ask the President to ensure it is funded. I'm pessimistic about the chances that it will change anything, as the President cannot change Congressional budget priorities, and only has limited ability to move money between NSF programs. However, bringing attention to the issues of science funding in this country cannot hurt.


Hello Eric,
As you’ve posted, this is hardly news, since it was discussed a few years back.
However, since most, if not all of the data that got gathered from Arecebio by SETI@home is only stored and preprocessed by clients (us) without ever beeing analysed as of now, i don’t see the emidiate need for interaction.

Mainly, the only thing we do and have been doing for years is to preprocess data without having it analysed, for ages.

So what’s the big deal anyway ? Piling up more data without analysing it since that’s what we’ve been doing since day one ?

Without having some sort of NITPCKR running 24/7, analysing data REALTIME (o r as close as we can get), it’s a waste of out time anyways.

Would’nt you agree ?

There’s no reason for an alien civilisation to keep broadcasting a signal for a bunch of years constantly, i’d rather assume „if“ they’d do radio at all it’ll be a short, massive burst.

So where does that leave us in the first place ?

Posted 14 Jan 2012 by Profile Crunch3rProject Donor
Yes, i think it was sort of a miscommunication, resulting in a bad response.
I'd suggest for future releases to include a link to a public SVN/GIT repository to avoid such misinterpretations in the first place.

That'll get rid of misinformation like that in the first place....


Alright, glad that's resolved & that's much better constructive suggestions.

For now, what I'll do is change the policy from 'available on request' to an export in modified sources downloads every new release, like x41g source is there now.

As it happens, the X-branch is meant to be going into Seti's Public repository anyway as next stock, so it will indeed have public SVN through Berkeley.

It isn't possible/practical to host a public SVN at Lunatics at this time, since the hosting arrangements are provided for gratis, and there have been problems with spamming etc. There's still a lot to work out for the changes to open up for Linux development, as described in the first post, and isn't an instant move, but hopefully things will get to the stage registrations can be opened back up wider public testing done there.

Jason


Thanks that things got finally sorted and we're on the same page.
GIT is free for open source and won't cost a dime.MilkyWay is using it for hosting the GPL source code. (Give it a try!)

As long as the source code is GPL and is made public using GIT HUB, it's free of charge and the best way to to!

Check it out ;)

Not strange if you think about it, like I said a personality clash. If you didn't mean to threaten that's great! thanks!. In future when you want to know something, simply ask, and don't mention the GPL. Believe me it'll work a lot better.

It's got nothing to do with the technical suggestions about Linux builds, which I know you know what you are talking about. No question at all.

Bringing up the GPL after your very public history with it was not a good idea, and certainly pushes my buttons. Let's leave it at 'personality clash' status & move on, so that I can interpret you drifting back here as a sign of positive interest generated by the work, rather than someone trying to threaten people with the GPL.

Jason


My intention was not to threaten anyone using GPL... and i think you got the whole message totally wrong in the worst way you've could interpreted it.

It was never intended as a threat in the first place and if you would have had any doubts about it, a simple PM about my post would have clarified it's intension. Anyway, you've taken it as a personal attack that it was not even close to what it was supposed to be....

Kind of strange, why you feel frightened by someone asking to consider older supporting 'older' linux OS versions as well or at least post a public source code along with the release to fix those issues...

Anyway, i've gotten rid of the the SuSE 11.2 OS running on a ntel(R) Atom(TM) CPU 330 ... the ION GPU is now running the latest CUDA app on windows 7 x64... so i don't care about the linux dependency hell any more.

Oh well, best of luck with your collaborations then. I certainly hope you have less communication difficulties at the projects you believe in helping more. It's funny, I never had a problem with you before, but you made one now. Let's call it a personality clash & move on then.

Jason


Dude... I don't know why you think you need to start personal attacks, since i've never had any issues with you before this one.(which i haven't considered offensive nor as a personal attack while i posted it). My initial post was just sort of a 'hint' at the one compiling the code to consider building it on a not so recent linux distro... I don't see why you feel personally attacked by that!!!!

And yes, i seem to have less communication difficulties with MilkyWay@Home, Collatz,PrimeGrid etc... it's kind of straight forward. I post what's on my mind and what needs to be done to get where those projects what to be....

No need to get personal nor start attacking someone,since we're on the same page and want to get things done...Efficiency is what gets the job done and that's what is asked for.

However, having a look at your recent replies and you feeling the need to taking personal some posts that weren't even directed at you in the first place... it's kind of curious why you feel the need to band people from hidden 'public' SVNs...

The SVN is private, not public. Sources for release builds available on request as always.
[quote]

So where is the public address to request access to it ? Please point me to one that hasn't been 'public' since 'this' started...

I'm not surprised you can't remember how it works, or where the website is, since you never bother to visit until there's something you want.


So calling me stupid being unable to figure out a way to access a hidden 'public' SVN is your way to go... Besides that please point out exactly what i wanted to that YOU had... There's nothing you personally could offer that would interest me in any way.(This is where YOU start personal ATTACKS
)

Big surprise you post here about something being unavailable without even asking on the right forum.



Yes, bandying about misinterpretations of legal documents ARE personal attacks, so wise up & adjust the attitude. You have a problem with asking politely & prefer to point the finger. Go look in the mirror.

Jason


Wow... that's just one of the reasons why i choose to getting rid of the whole SAH garbage.. Just try reading your post again and think about why you feel personally attacked in the first place without my post being direct at yourself in the first place ... It's kind of disgusting.

Read the GPL. You obviously have not. It is, as always has been, available on request. If you think it has to be posted on a website, then you are mistaken,


Yes, but that requires at least an address/e-mail where to request a download link to the source. None of that is available.... Not even in any of the readme files included in the installer !


Perhaps being courteous when you want something would be a better approach, for now you burn your bridges with me & are now on ignore.
Jason


Courteous, would be mentioning at least an email address to mail to getting the source. In my initial post i wasn't even poking at the fact that none of that was possible but giving a hint that compiling on a not so recent linux would be the way to go.
Obviously you've taken that as a personal insult... which sort of baffled me,since it was only 'directed' at the one compiling the app in the first place to include older linux distros.

However, having a look at your recent replies and you feeling the need to taking personal some posts that weren't even directed at you in the first place... it's kind of curious why you feel the need to band people from hidden 'public' SVNs...

I'm glad for you. Collaboration and respect is the name of the game, as is clear from the opening post in this thread.


Yes, Collaboration is the key and unlike here, Full source code(optimized or not) is available over at MilkyWay@Home. That is a key to helping out the project in the first place!

Milkyway opened up the source code and while using most of my personal code in the stock app now, enabling it to increase processing speed by a factor of at least 2.5.

Over at MilkyWay there's no question about where to find the code since all of it (including optimized code(GPLed)) is public... unfortunately this is not the case for SETI and the lunatics code.

On the contrary, one get's banned from accessing a hidden code repository... you honestly think that's the way to go ?

Besides all that.. i'm also the one that helped out PrimeGrid codeing a new LLR Wrapper (LLR v6.09, evidence can be found over at the PrimeGrid forum)... and of course there are a bunch of other projects as well that you don't even know about where i got involved (at least more than 6 projects requested and got help)...but it seems, you don't care about that, which is sad...

Instead you choose to dig out a 5+ years old post to support your claims,which is of course obsolete. You're trying to play dirty here without giving people the recent facts ?

It would probably have gone down better if you hadn't been so cavalier over the (L)GPL in the past: available to the team only. Really?


Ahh... you like digging around in the past(5 years old post)... why not mention that i contributed the source code to boinc that enabled ATI GPUs support ????


I guess that you forgot about that one... try searching on TRAC you find the entry where that was mentioned... i'm sure you can find that one...


And if you hadn't been so negative about SETI in more recent postings on other project web sites. A shame your expertise wasn't applied here after our collaboration over the 2.4 V(ista) apps.


Well... my 'expertise' was applied to milkyway@home using my hand code sse2-sse4.1 code that is now part of the OFFICIAL code base which by some unknown reason is publicly available there -> http://github.com/Milkyway-at-home/milkywayathome_client

Do a search and you'll find the entry when my code was integrated into the stock source code... if not, ask Matt Arsenault over at MilkyWay@Home via PM. I'm sure he can point you to the right place to search for it.
If that is to hard todo, i'll gladly find that one for you and post it here... in public....

unfortunately i was unable to find a link to the source code to compile it myself on an old SuSE 11.2 (and it's not listed there -> http://lunatics.kwsn.net/index.php?module=Downloads;catd=2 either which is a bit odd since it's GPLed software)



Why would you point the bone like that?


What? The source code wasn't available at lunatics as it's supposed to be... maybe that's why !?!


When you were given full svn access from the start.


Uhmm... that was like 2 years ago... do you honestly think i remember that ?!?
Nor does it help anyone who tries to compile a app specific to their OS library deps... But that is kind of unwanted since requesting access to the source is answered with banning people from accessing a hidden SVN code base !!!!

Then you know full well the requirements are to make the source for release builds available on request.


So this is your reply to my "request" on getting the source code...that's interesting...blocking public access. Is that really the way to go ? I don't think so since all changes to the lunatics code haven't been public in the first place since you got involved in it... except for Raistmers releases, that for some reason were published including source... go figure...


If you require updated sources & forgot how to use the SVN, or would prefer a different method, just ask... and don't ever try beat me over the head with GPL again, I actually read it.


How about a public SVN in the first place and stop being so paranoid about code ...

Now, I had to do some faffing around when I installed the C1060 to get the driver activated without putting it in the xorg.conf file (still using the onboard Matrox VGA as the C1060 doesn't have video output), and I haven't removed that kludge at all even though the 460 is now in the X setup. Looks like I got the clues from http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=52629. The script goes in /etc/init.d/cuda -- I can't remember if I had to do anything else.

B*gger! When I worked up enough courage to try the GTX 460 in the Supermicro, it turned out Scientific Linux CERN 5 is too out-of-date to run the programme:

Unfortunately that's not how time dilation works. To the people on the ship it would be 8.6 years and back on earth hundreds of years would go by.

No. That's quite wrong...it'll be 8.6 years on earth and far less on the ship that goes at half light speed .... here's a link to 'simulate' how time dilation works -> http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/timedilation.htm (you'll see where you went wrong.)



Besides all that, it's extremely odd to assume that any ET intelligence is using radio signals in the first place... there's absolutely no prove that an advanced civilization would use radio waves to communicate...



It's just bogus to assume that ETI would use radio signal in the first place...
