What's new about SETI@home v7
Posted 178 days ago by Jon connell
Many thanks for the update. I like the sound of the new detection function lots.
Over the years I have been concerned that we were perhaps searching in too narrow an envelope. ...The best we could do at the time of course. Volumes have been written about advanced compression algorithms and their impact on broadcast waveform. With this extension I suspect that you are looking in the right place.
Optimistically speaking, to date we may have been doing a good job searching only for what we expected - and doing so based on the past (and presumed future) 100 years or so of broadcast technology. Fingers crossed.
I hope the upgrade goes peacefully for you.
Thanks and keep up the good work.

I am looking at a work unit that seems to be going on forever. Most units take afew hours on my main machine - 5-ish. This unit - 04mr07aa.874.17250.11.4.62.6 is running very very very slowly...
The Boinc manager is telling me I have atime of 58 hours with 60 left to completion and a progress of 0.024%. Its is in the middle of a triplet search that seems to go on forever.
LogX - which I installed to try to see what was going on with this unit - has a CPU tim on it of 46:55:33 to date and LogX is reporting that I have 230830:20:01 left.
Do I have a problem? Is this a bad unit or a problem somewhere.
This is the first two weeks of using BOINC, but I never saw this with the old SETI.
