Good luck on the jury duty Matt. I was selected for mine starting Monday. Out of curiosity, I called up the jury line this week to see what their schedule was like. No jurors were called all week, so I expect to be called in a somewhat busier week.

Why dump all astropulse WUs at the same time? Can't they be released in a controlled manner?

Hi, I am running Boinc (latest release) on a Mac Dual Core. What exactly is an optimized client? Why should I have one and where do I get it?

Please advise.

Thanks, and keep up the good work Seti team!

Matt,

You upped the ready to send queue to 1 million, but it seems to be hitting a cap at about 800,000. Is that a computing limitation?

Good workings!

Ben

Hello all,

I just wanted to say that over the last couple of weeks I've seen again and again discouraging posts from people who are frustrated with SETI. I'm pretty tired of it. I'm not here for credit, or to run as many workunits as possible, and I only read this page because I like to see what progress the team is making. I'm here because the mission is about searching the universe for other intelligent life, something that I'm pretty sure we all believe in. So please keep your aggravated complaints to yourself. If you have a legitimate issue that is one thing, but if you're upset because your RAC has dived or something just know that I'm sure Matt and the rest of the team also wish that you had plenty of work to process and that everything was going easy for you, because then their job would be easier too! These guys work hard on a project that runs off of volunteer time and donations of money and equipment. If you want to see them succeed - donate! But please take your crying elsewhere.

Thank you SETI team for all your hard work, and I look forward to the day when SETI announces a significant finding because I truly believe that one day all this hard work will pay off. And that is worth more than any amount of credit I could get for a workunit.

To everyone else, keep up the good work!

Ben
11) Questions and Answers : Web site : News Feed problem? (Message 242820)
Posted 3146 days ago by Profile Sharkbait
Hi. I would like to note that I'm only able to get an rss feed for your News page, and not your 'Technical News" page. I was wondering I need to fix my settings, or if there is a problem in your page, or if there is no rss feed for the Technical page at all. By the way, I get great enjoyment from your technical news page. Please respond. Thanks,
