So specs aren't actually available yet. Gotcha.

The latest newsletter mentioned SERENDIP VI, but I can only find tech specs up to SERENDIP V on the web. Anybody have any idea how much stronger VI will be compared to V?

Oh and another thing I've noticed. I just upgraded to a Galaxy Note 2, with a quad-core chip. At full tilt, the wall charger simply cannot provide enough juice to keep the phone at 100% while running BOINC on all four cores.

Still, running one or two cores is better than nothing. Running fewer cores helps keep the temp down too.

Sure, I'll just carry one with me whenever I'm on the road. :)

I think I found part of the problem. Most crashes occur when the app suspends / resumes a task.

I did not want my phone getting too hot, so I set it to suspend when the battery temp reached 30c. Trouble is that at night even when I'm not using it, running certain tasks would cause it to go over 30c. So it would suspend and resume all night long. This is when most of the errors took place.

By setting it to run constantly, it seemed to run smoothly...albeit a little hot.

I know what a UFO is and have taken a photo of one. The RAF does not think of them as being of alien origin. This is what I meant. I should have explained it better.

I think this is a very important distinction to make, that many people have forgotten about. UFO means, literally, Unidentified Flying Object. That's all. It doesn't automatically mean an alien spacecraft. A UFO could be a plane that is masked by clouds or reflecting the sunlight a certain way. It could be a cloud, or a bird, or a flock of birds, or anything really.

That said, I believe in UFOs. There are hundreds of things in the sky I can't always identify. Hell, one night a few years back I took a pic of an orange light flying patterns in the sky with no noise, no typical running lights, or anything. Turns out it was a candle kite, but at first it was a UFO because I didn't know what the hell it was.

So do I believe in UFOs? You bet. Do I believe they're alien spacecraft? No. Do I believe aliens visited Earth? I've seen no evidence of that.

Do I believe the government might want to cover up such a thing? Possibly, but with the millions of cameras, telescopes and radars belonging to private citizens and professional scientists watching the skies...something should have been seen by now. And good luck having any one national government try to silence something like that.

Still wont let me send bug reports, I'm afraid.

Looks like the website is still down due to the server move, can't submit bigs. Shame...I have like six to go out. :-)

Unfortunately I am not good at computations or anything to do with computer programs. I am a layman. I joined because I believe the S.E.T.I. project is on the right track and will be the first to discover that we have other life in the universe. It is fun to watch how much gets done by me doing little to nothing. Can you explain what a signal would most likely look like?

Thanks for the heads up! Question about the future of SETI@home, if you have a moment.

Every so often a new version of S@H comes out with increased sensitivity or a new type of search. Wouldn't it be easier to simply release a version of S@H that has it's sensitivity cranked up to the limits of the sensitivity of Arecibo, rather than ratcheting it up every couple years?

k sent. Happy to be bugtesting for you, I think it's neat to run BOINC on my phone. :)

K it found a bug when primegrid crashed. Do I just send it to you from within the app?

It says I need to install the bug catch version. Will this prevent me from updating automatically from the play store later?

Edit - installed the bugcheck version. The buttons for sending or saving the logs are greyed out.

Seti v7 keeps crashing out on my Galaxy S3. Out of a dozen workunits sent, only two successfully completed. I have tried detaching and re-attaching the project, as well as fully re-installing BOINC. No luck. Other projects seem to work fine.

So version includes auto correlation which, I assume based on reading the wiki, makes it more sensitive to weak signals? That's certainly a good thing. I'm still curious to know exactly how much more sensitive it makes S@H, and if there are any other improvements in v.7...

Installed and working great. Once again, hats off to Lunatics!

One question regarding the CUDA versions. I'm running a 9800 series GeForce so I selected 3.2. What would actually happen if I were to select a higher version of CUDA? Would it just not work, or would it not work as well as 3.2? If I stick with 3.2, will that prevent me from getting certain kinds of work from Seti?

Thanks!

They would work, it just wouldn't be as fast as the Cuda32 app, My testing on my 9800GTX+ showed a slowdown on Cuda32 and Cuda42 apps on drivers later than 301.xx, the Cuda5 app was even slower,
there was no slowdown on the Cuda23 app, so since you're running 311.06, you may want to try the Cuda23 app instead.

Claggy


So 2.3 is actually faster than 3.2 for a 9800 series card?

Still no explanation on what v7 does. Yesterday has come and gone...


As mentioned in this very thread, there have been other more urgent issues that have required people's attention.



Sorry, didn't see it through all the spam in this thread.
