1) Message boards : SETI@home Science : SHGb02+14a or the 'wow' signal (Message 1178811)
Posted 851 days ago 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 1036 days ago 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.

I have seti set to keep 5 days worth of work but when I want to do another project it automatically sets its project for the same 5 days and I'm stuck with tons of work I could never process in a million years. How can I set 5 day for seti and only get 1 work for another project?

I got a new graphics card to process work faster. Its a lot faster now. I could care less what my RAC is I've been using Seti@home since it came out. I lost my credit from a previous work but its not important. Results are only important and I could care less if its me or someone else. I hope we find a real signal soon. :)

Unless I am doing something wrong, I cannot get the coordinates to appear on Google Mars. EDIT: Nevermind. I got it. And no...it's not near any known landers, crafts, rovers or etc. It is literally alone in the middle of no where.


They probably when out picking up trash from previous missions while they are stationed on the secret manned mission to mars. Supplies I assume are limited.

Back to looking for Primes.....and I just got this new graphics card.... : /

Another update...though I am only posting this link because it made me LOL.
http://www.huliq.com/10128/viral-youtube-video-google-earth-mars-explorer-shows-evidence-life

End of article: Alfred McEwen, a planetary geologist at the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona and also the Director of the Planetary Imaging Research Laboratory, calls it a digital glitch, stating “It looks like a linear streak artifact produced by a cosmic ray,” as he spoke with Space.com.

So...SWAMP GAS...lol sorry I had to say it.


Could be a crashed UFO. I think we need to move the Hubble and get a better photo.

I was looking for lost (crashed) spacecraft and the Viking Landers when I stumbled upon it. Anyone know where they are located?

I saw that a while back while looking at mars. I didn't report it because I thought it was ice. I still think that. ;)


A pretty good geometrical formation to be ice. EDIT: also compare the image below to the actual image:

Upper right corner area...almost a similarity.


Next time I see something near Area 51 on Google earth I'm saying something. lol

Maybe this is a good spot for the next rover. :)

Now wouldn't that be funny if its actually left over cities that used to be on mars or even a top secret manned mars mission. lol

It's a good thing I like to crunch multiple projects. My Seti work is all done and waiting for upload. Milkway is done and waiting for the server to come back. Climate prediction is waiting for the firewall to be fixed to download the next workunit.

So now my GPU is now idle, but I still have Einstein, Rosetta, Poem and WCG on my main machine and Malaria on the household server. Here's hoping I don't lose any more projects in the next few days! LOL


Just got a new graphics card yesterday. Starting to pump out units fast. Now most are stuck on Uploading all day.....Looking for primes now... : /

Yes, it will help your GPU get through work faster at the risk of frying your GPU if you don't watch your temps.


Ok. Thanks. It is running 4 times faster than my old card so this will do till I do another upgrade. :)

Posted 1047 days ago by Profile PKII
Those are just your GPU speed and RAM speed respectively.

There are no "wrong" settings for SETI@Home, just as there are no "wrong" CPU speeds. Those settings are there for overclockers who want to tweak and get more performance.

Of course, overclocking usually voids your warranty, so proceed with caution.


Will raising the values make the GPU crank out more completed work? or just melt my video card. : /

This new graphics card I got to process Seti@home work has some settings I'm not familiar with such as Processor Clock and Memory Clock. Right now its set at the default settings of 1903 for Processor and 2178 for Memory are these settings correct for Seti@Home?

Sorry, but I'm still showing your computers as hidden. Please try again.

Its back to not giving me work again. : /

There is a server problem, nobody is getting work right now.

Also I turned on show computers again. : /

Yes, I can see them.

Now, watch the Cricket graphs. When the servers come back and Uploads/Downloads resume, if you are still not getting work, ask for help in the Number Crunching section.


It started to work again. :)

I guess I got my new computer just in time. It's an i7 2600 with a GT 440 graphics card. According to my stats pages, it currently has 445 units in progress. My two older machines have about 50 between them.

I'm having a hard time getting 1 work unit a day. Are you even getting work?

Your computers are hidden. Check to make sure the work you are doing is validating.


Starting to get some work now but between May 1 and May 19th I received no work period. Are we running out of work?

Nope. Lots of work to be had, and most of us are getting plenty.

As Gary suggested, unhide your computers. Then ask your question in the Number Crunching section. There are lots more people there than here who are willing to help you figure it out.


Unhidden.

I just hope we can crunch the work units before the Rapture begins on Saturday ;) :P
