I didn't know that Seti@home accepted Bitcoins.. I'll spread the word!


I believe that SETI doesn't deal with them, however BitCoin Utopia runs this for funds to support it. So, if you do, you have to go for Campaign #5 for it to go to SETI. At some point, Bitcoin can, and will stop it.

So crunch while you can! I'm running pure Campaign #5 (for 20+GH/s ASICs) on 6 New R-Boxes.

I've been running pure CGminer for SETI on 6 New R-Boxes till the end.

Any idea how long this runs, so I can jump right into the new work by the time this quest runs! Maybe I missed a post earlier.

Many thanks for the thread Eric. Yes as one of the oldies around here, I well remember Jack, although I never met him.

RIP

I've never met him, though we've chatted enough times to know that he was one of the best! :-\

Hi Dune! What's gnu, besides the OS?


Same old, same old...

And what's gnu with gyu? And other than troubles getting my miner to start mining again, not much of anything.

I smell a long night tonight trying to get this thing working like I want. All in all, a pretty sweet OS. Though I wish I could get it to do what I want it to do...

Winning after just having installed 64 bit Windows 10 Pro.

Loosing after trying to rack my brain, as to why I'm not crunching any Bitcoin Utopia using my ASICs miner.

Yea, I'm seeing Laughingboy, Captain Avatar, Dr. CETI, and Joanne, DogBytes, Jack Lass. I'm not recognizing a whole lot of other faces though.

Shame I wasn't there. Sounds like good times, and good beer! :)

He must not need my help.

Good! :-D

Does this bird do any serious crunching? I'd be very wary of this guy. :(

G'night soon myself. zzzzzzzz -_-

But first a little story about sleepwalking. My buddy from work, in the middle of the night, and had to take a quick trip to the bathroom.

Turns out, his wife woke him up, and he was doing his business in the the clean clothes in the dresser.

Mighty handy I'd say. Apparently his wife didn't think so though. She wouldn't talk to him for a week! :=D

It's great having that dresser right next to the bed.

Maybe you're a stronger person than I, Angela...

Not stronger, my friend.... just acutely aware of the times in my life when I have been a less than stellar human being, and hoping that people do not calculate the total worth of my character by adding up only my worst moments in life.

Not I. I've shared some pretty tender moments with Kenzie, and now to find she's a fake.

Not for me. I'm sorry, and if I could cancel my friendship on my other profile, I would. Only Allie can do that.

Total "Friends" for "Allie/KenzieB" down to 61. Dune you have two accounts listed there. You should cancel the "Friendship" on both of them.

It's already been done on this account. I can only assume that it takes some time to happen. I just did it 5 or 6 minutes ago on this account. I can't get at the other one to cancel it. I don't have access to the other one, nor do I care to.

If there's one last favor I'd ask of this so called "Allie of Vancouver", it'd be to cancel the Dune Finkleberry that's still standing.

I've been pretty silent watching the unfolding first of the birth of KenzieB as a newcomer in SETI, then the growing of KenzieB, and then the death of KenzieB.

You out there with all your myriad of faces, you have no idea what you took from us. I imagine years, months, weeks, or days, my wife comes in here, and announces my death. Who's going to believe her?

You come in here, and start this little charade of yours, then keep it up for awhile, then kill her off like some cheap paperback book. I'm glad I found out when I did.

I could describe you in all kinds of colorful terms, but I'd like this post to stand. I could care less if you EVER comment back. I don't know you, I never want to meet you, and I never want to see Allie of Vancouver or you. or one of your many faces in here. I'm done.

KenzieB is dead! Good... She was never alive, so who cares?

So far I haven't heard from anyone who has been defrauded or hurt by this apart from feeling deceived. So perhaps people might want to bear that in mind before they start calling for heads to roll.

Well, right off the top of my head, how about the guy that she wanted to do nasty things to?

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=74012&postid=1474019

It was a pleasant shock at the time, but now I'm hearing that she could very well have been a guy!

A little hurt? Yeah!
Now very much peeved, and a bit uncomfortable? Yeah!

There are new viruses that are only attracted to goats.


I'm aware of those, and stay away from those as well.

Are you aware of the "Fruit Bat" ones? They are particularly dangerous!

Is their a new email virus out masquerading as different types of
legal proceedings? I find I have a legal claim has been awarded to me
in Virginia and I have been evicted in Chicago. I'm nowhere near those
areas and when I tried to download the zip files on a Linux machine
Hotmail refuses to do it because they contain an unknown virus. Who
would have thought Hotmail would be that protecting of my interests?


Maybe it's me, but I would never had downloaded any of these!
I don't even view the images in such spam mail. No matter what machine I'm running! And I'm running one of the most vulnerable machines out there. Windows...

Good luck collecting because all you'll collect is more spam, and more headaches.

I heard this morning, and maybe I haven't been out much, but I thought she'd already passed on.

Very sad none the less... I was raised on many of her movies. RIP Shirley.
