1) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit where Credit is Due..... (Message 1380459)
Posted 464 days ago by Profile Cono
Hello all,
I started crunching SETI in July 2003. Started from scratch (as did we all) and slowly and steadily became a substantial contributor to the project. I believe in the science and had no preconceptions about the work being a competition as such for some folks. I've watched the project endure it's share of growing pains as more people flocked to help process the data over the years.
I couldn't possibly begin to fathom all of the hours of work spent to band aid the project through those times when there was no money or resources for necessary hardware and upgrades. For those committed to it's survival...truly a labor of love to which I acknowledge and extend my heartfelt thanks for your efforts.
In that light , the current improvements with hardware, bandwith etc, come as a breath of fresh air to those just interested in doing the work. The credit aspect of the project just made it fun for people to compete and I'm sure raised the dial on the project more than a notch or two! But as always in human nature, nobody likes to have the goal posts moved on them in the middle of the game. I admit to having a competitive side, and it was thinking just the other day maybe 10 years and out for me in July. Then I reminded myself of one of the addages that I use in similar situations...." It will all come out in the wash."
So for now, I am content to let the water seek its own level and applaud the fact that the project is still in business, and.... the people who run it. Most of us remember, that may not have been the case just a few short years ago. My best to all.

It appears someone has taken care of this. The Boinc Stats credit pie charts are no longer showing another project. Thanks.

Who is responsible for redirecting credit to another project I am not participating in?

Understood and thank you.
I have these machines overcloclocked now and they do about warp 5, hence my question. I Did try an Nvidia card w/cuda and it worked fine, but my processor would not run the same application along side of it. I found out later this is not posiible. I will look into the third party software. Thank you for responding!

I am running quad cores on Intel Bad Axe boards and are showing results averaging between 1500-1600, less than half of what some people are achieving. I am using Boinc's latest version. How can I increase my productivity?

Thanks,
Cono

Has anyone had this problem with seti only sending 4 work units a day? Resetting does not fix the problem. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
