Thank you for the update. I'm running MilkyWay@home and Einstein@home until you return.


first off, happy thanksgiving and thanks for the update !

My Einstein RAC has surpassed my ever declining Seti credit so I really hope this will be the last "bugs" that will have to be worked out...

Will this ever gonna work again?
Don't let the volunteers crunch too much on their backup projects, f. e. Einstein, etc.
When they see the credit given there, they might give up on this... :รพ


True, when people get used to the extremely much higher credits of their backup project, they will abandon SETI in droves.

That'll of course benefit those of us who stays. More work units for us, and much easier to get them, once the project starts splitting work again :-)


I'm crunching Einstein too (just to keep the old rig from going "silent") atm and I must admit 3333 credits for a 3.5 hour GPU WU is massive compared to Seti. But the science and my field of interest remains here and as soon as the project is back up I'll be 110% committed to Seti

In last 24 hours 32 units received. At this rate, a little bit over week left.


I think you can add another 25 days to that with all the time outs coming up fairly soon calculating by the last time I got a V6 resend...

Reporting working just fine, took a bit longer than usual but that was to be expected.

No worries, the GPU is crunching Einstein atm so we'll just wait till the boys at the lab patch everything together again ;-)

Very, very close now.....
Only 54 channels left to do.

Edit: Only 40 channels left to do now.
Edit 2: Only 35 channels left to do now.

Only 27 channels left to do now. We're going down...


21 channels, Seti is almost splattered to pieces on the rock bottom

with all the remaining unsplit tapes being 0.25GB I guess we will run out of work in a couple of hours... Oh, the HORROR !

Looks like all the remaining MB channels are stuck ones as ready to send buffer now fell almost to 0.

Im guessing that Ap on v7 will pay like MB on v7. The same.
It wont pay anymore to run AP work only. Thats just my guess though.


that's what I'm guessing too. Out of all the tasks that have been validated none has "paid" more than 198 credits...

for now I'm running stock AP v7 but these tasks complete in 40-45 minutes and I also see my wingman on all 4 are a Mac so let's wait a bit.

*sigh, since AP's stopped validating my RAC has also dropped 10k now*

Nope.. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7374749&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=20

AP7 credit is low as hell. Thats not that good really.


same here, out of the 2 who validated yet I got 177 and 198 (no overflows, other host was a Mac)

with AP almost out and 700+ MB channels left I fear a 2 week drought before we get more...

Maybe they dumped all the old data to roll out AP v7 ? And will this also be subject to the dreadful monstrosity we lovingly call "credit new" ???

My log is full of "Couldn't connect to server" messages, i've got a few dozen to be reported & climbing.


reporting and validating goes fine here, WU distribution is down though...

seems the server changes implied 2 weeks ago result in feeding everyone's CPU needs first and even though you're out of GPU tasks it will feed them later. 2 hours after reaching 100 CPU AP tasks I'm rising steadily on GPU AP's so no need to worry here... The WU's will come in sooner or later.

Well it's morning now and overnight 66 S@H enhanced tasks errored out. Now BOINC tells me (logical response to the errors) the rig has hit a daily quota of 2... Not so happy about that one

edit : never mind, I get tasks manually after unchecking V6 MB's

What's really weird (at least on my end) is the MB's sent out are mostly ones who are validated already but were granted 0 credit.

I noticed now too, some fail to DL but the ones who do run smoothly.

Guess staff is cleaning house, love to see a MB or 20 on my machine again :D


Next 20
