I have been running SET@home on GPU on one machine (along with CPU on four other machines) along with Einstein and GPUGrid without any problems.

In fact, the other projects were fine with the new driver.

I am just glad to be able to do for SET@home whatever I can, to respect its position as the "mother" of all BOINC.

I got some help and re-installed 301.42, which I had in the past. This is a new machine so the drivers were the "latest and greatest". But I had 301.42 on GTX 670's before.

I had SETI installed for CPU and GPU on a computer. I needed to remove it because it loaded a huge number of GPU tasks of very short duration which erred one after another, but tied up the GPU preventing three other GPU projects from running any tasks.

I am still running SETI for CPU only on four other machines.

OMG!! Didn't recognize the name. I already get your feed.

Eric, could you please add an RSS feed utility to this thread?

Carlos-

Interesting, SETI@home is not even mentioned in the "About the Show".

Perhaps Dan could tell us if it was a recycled clip.

The program did give a nice nod to SETI@home.

Of course, while there was a focus on Hat Creek, there was no mention of Arecibo.

So, little interest here in the program?

I watched it, seeing some of my heroes.

My usual two complaints: BOINC was never mentioned; Dan from SETI@home still speaks of the project being done in "a screen saver", which, of course, most of us do not run any screen saver.

First, there appears to be some sensitivity among some crunchers for SET@home to confusion between the project and SETI Institute, two separate institutions. As you may know, SETI Institute has been publishing at Huffington Post for quite some time.

Second, Huffington Post is part of America On Line.

Third, Huffington Post seems to be dragging in bloggers like a magnet attracts iron filings.

If you want a separate blog outpost, you should look at Wordpress. If you want a clue about that, ask the guys at WCG project CEP2 up at Harvard. They are about as good as it gets in exploiting all sorts of social media.

Great news!!

This thing never should have happened. A handful of our billionaires could have dumped some for their loose change and solved this thing.

Hey Tullio-

Nice to see you here. If possible, did you see the article on line and might you have a link?

This whole thing is ridiculous. When you realize that the ATA is named for Paul Allen (of Microsoft billions)and how support of the ATA would be not even a drop in the bucket for him, it gets beyond laughable.

tullio-

I have seen this ignorant hogwash before. Some of you people ought to find out about what you say before you say it.

you are flat dead wrong. check this link on the SETI Institute web site for their reference to SETI@home

http://www.seti.org/page.aspx?pid=748

Also, if you have ever ever watched a video from SETI Institute, Jill Tarter speaks glowingly about SETI@home.

So far at least eight views of my earlier blog post. How about $25 each to SETI Institute. Too much? Pick your own number.

The SETI Institute does accept donations at their web site.

Further on this subject, if you find your way to a video, Jill Tarter: The Future of SETI Research, http://fora.tv/2010/02/23/Jill_Tarter_The_Future_of_SETI_Research, and if you go into the video to about 22'30", you will hear Jill speak glowingly about SETI@home. She is speaking about modern tools now available for SETI research that just did not exist 50 years ago when she started her work.

I did a wee bit of research at the SETI Institute web site. I found this page about SETI@home, http://www.seti.org/page.aspx?pid=748.

This page is all on SET@home.If you look at the page, you will see this statement: "This [SETI@home] is not part of the research program of the SETI Institute, but uses data collected with the Arecibo Radio Telescope, in Puerto Rico, as part of Project SERENDIP. The SETI Institute is a major supporter of the SERENDIP search."

The page also gives the link for SETI@home. So, SETI Institute and SETI@home are quite separate, but like many areas of basic research, their position is the more the merrier.

In working on my blog, I have found that one of the most important aspects of research - on a world wide basis - is cooperation. The best example of this is probably the LHC at CERN, where there is cooperation among over 600 scientific researchg institutions and universities around the globe to process all of the data which comes in to the ATLAS, ALICE and CMS detectors from the LHC.

I also find that many individual scientists have positions at the same time at CERN, FermiLab, maybe also Brookhaven, or Berkeley Lab, and at the same time are actually a doctoral candidate or post-doc at a university.

So, while it is absolutely correct to draw a distinction between SETI Institute and SET@home, the probability is that there is cooperation, just as, if you look at the NPR article, NASA, a government agency, took their findings to SETI Institute, a totally separate and non-governmental institution.

There is no confusion about SETI Institute vs SETI@home.

As I prepare posts for my blog, I will use any "hook" I can to spread the word about projects running on BOINC software, from SETI@home through all of the WCG projects.
