It would be interesting to hear your story, mystery writer. I won't judge you without your explanation, and I realize that you may have suffered your own humiliation over this, even if you brought it on yourself. It may take time to re-gain face. Come back and tell us your real story and why you did it. You owe that to this community (you had a large investment in this place.)

And I would like to read the novel.
Less interesting things than this saga have made their way into movies and books.
Please.
Do continue to entertain us. You have us by the curtains.
Nobody here, I think, wishes you anything but the best.
At least, not myself.
Give it a go, please.

"55 year old Canadian man poses as a woman online for 6 years, fools hundreds, posting pictures of glamorous models he pretended were her. Kills her off online, and is now posing as her 16 year old adopted daughter.

The University of Berkeley California refused to comment on the reports that SETI@Home was involved."


it's time to call Sherlock

This whole Shannon/kenzieb affair is quite shocking and disturbing to me...
... but looking back at posts that span nearly seven years I don’t find that person as malevolent or someone trying to take advantage of others. On the contrary, I find that person to be interesting, intelligent, quick witted and caring. As Fred said “it is important to remember that he (or she) gave generously of their time and gave excellent advice to many. This person was exemplary as a model member of the SETI@home Volunteer Forum Moderation Team.”

So perhaps the story told by Allie is partially true and only photos were faked. Allie told us that “She was always uncomfortable about her looks” due to a car accident that left scars on her face. She might be hiding behind an avatar of a person she knew or photographed. Perhaps after Kenzie’s death, teenage Allie got carried away and added a few things on her own. We can’t be sure about any of that.

But I want Allie or any other person behind these accounts to please come forward and explain it to us. Kenzie’s fans and friends at least deserve that much.

We are humans and quite capable of making mistakes but if we accept our failings and try to come clean; we deserve a shot at redemption too. So in my opinion, if Allie/Shannon/Kenzieb offers some sound explanation and forum moderators think that plausible, she/he should be allowed to rejoin.

This is merely an opinion and I hope no one gets angry about that. I am just trying to provide an alternate explanation that may have some bit of truth in it.

But I have also cancelled my friendship with that account because the person I thought I knew is dead either way.

Dear Kenzie I truly miss you. I always enjoyed your posts and I was planning to come to Vancouver this year and meet you in person.

thanks ageless, rules and policies of project certainly state that.
what more can be done to discourage such incidents in future ?

This is a sad day for SETI@home as it is definitely going to harm project's reputation.
I think administration should issue clear warnings and guidelines for all SETI crunchers in this regard.

And now the 3rd post in a row..

Francesco Forti's Core2 DUO 6600 with GTS250:
[http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=2693912]
RAC ~ 10,000

Hmm.. then maybe ~ 7,500 RAC for GTS250.


Ohhh, that's the ticket. 7500 RAC and 3 cores doing other things.

Me like. Me like a lot. :D



I have a Q6600 with GTS250. RAC 12,472 at the moment :)
