Not to many signing the petition. I bet most people don't know what the Arecibo Observatory does. Maybe add to the description that it also searches for Extraterrestrial signals if we don't get 100,000 signatures.

So how do I remove the 100 "ghosts"?

I'm almost done with the 37 I actually have.

Finally there are "ghosts", tasks that the server has sent to you, but have never arrived, these tend to happen when there is problem with the connection between your computer and the server....


I believe "ghosts" better explains my issue. Thanks.

Right now it shows I have 3 AstroPulse at my account tasks display online. I rarely even get one. These do not exist in my boinc program running right now. I've never had this happen before.

Today(yesterday) I haven't been able to get any tasks so I logged in the website to see what it said under "account" and it said I was in progress 100 tasks but I had none in the boinc program.

Tonight I pressed reset project and I finally got the 100 in boinc but now it says I am "in progress" of 200 tasks under my account which isn't correct.

I just watched this video on YouTube and I had a thought maybe it is not a Dyson Swarm or Comets. Maybe it is just years of space junk. ; )

This would be a good time to create a crowdfunding campaign for research to study the star KIC 8462852.

no you don't!

just need to program K2 mission to give a RED ALERT, when KIC 8462852 start dimming again...

so we have to see patterns in dimming 1st...
then, we have to watch the object in just as patterns begin...
and finally then - we can figure out what's it out there?!
;)


Cool.

We need another Kepler mission. Anyone know of any plans to send another one. This one worked out well even after it broke. : )

9) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Deadline on work units (Message 1686031)
Posted 30 May 2015 by Profile PKII
Is it possible to set the program seti@home to finished work based on the nearest deadline? I have work with a deadline of 6/15/15 but it is working on the work that has a deadline of 7/21/15.
10) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Losing hope... (Message 1685447)
Posted 29 May 2015 by Profile PKII
I have been running Seti@Home since 1999 and back then I was sure that a signal would be detected during my lifetime. Now that it is 2015 I am not so sure. The optimism of youth is slowly fading. I will continue to run Seti@Home as long as there is a spark of hope.


We will find the signal under the last rock we look under.

Posted 21 May 2015 by Profile PKII
Reduce the "additional days" to less than 1 - my computers are set to 0.1, or less, and I sit with maximum possible number of tasks (100 for the cpu, plus 100 for each gpu)


I changed it to .1 Thanks.

I'm only getting a couple of work units at a time. I used to get several units to process. Do I have a setting incorrect or are we just getting a couple at a time now?

I wonder what is the total power consumption of all our efforts to find a seti signal each year?
16) Message boards : SETI@home Science : SHGb02+14a or the 'wow' signal (Message 1178811)
Posted 17 Dec 2011 by Profile PKII
To be honest, I doubt that signal actually occurred. Or if it did occur, it was not something that came from space. It was never found again, he had no precise location where it was from, and I think his setup was a bit crude. I read that professionals have already examined the area around where he found the signal, and nothing was ever found after that. Therefore, I'm extremely skeptical about the Wow! signal.


Just because the signal was never found again doesn't mean it was never sent. I believe the Wow! signal is the first true contact from another civilization in our galaxy. Just think about some of the signals we have sent out they didn't repeat. Maybe the Wow! signal was just their first attempt at contact.

Nature said it cost 1.5 million dollars/year.


That is nothing compared to the 6 billion they LOST in IRAQ now why would anyone in their right mind send IRAQ 12 billion in CASH and not expect someone to steal it.

See www.setiquest.org. There is a video on the ATA explaining things.

All I saw there some useless videos of the Telescope and a one Liner that said it would be opening again. : /

You would think it would be BIG news with all the noise they made about it being shut down.

Posted 16 Jun 2011 by Profile PKII
Hello all, I would like to know if you people use your Seti@home software the whole day in your computer? is it good to leave it on the whole day? I would like to know what are the best ways to use it. And do you have hopes that in the future somebody will catch a signal from extraterrestrials?


thanks

Not me. I just run it on the weekends now that I got a new graphics card that loves power. : / Yes we will find a signal from ET if we haven't already found it. ;)

Is the Allen Array still in Hibernation or active? I just visited the site of www.seti.org and there is no mention that is in hibernation now.
