Today is NOT the day when the AP database will be working again. Neither is tomorrow the day it will happen.

End of prediction, (and WU's) :-)

I just got an AP, ap_09jn14aa_B6_P0_00033_20141030_15764.wu_2, 24 Nov 2014, 21:06:48 UTC.

Cheers.


An AP v6 resend or an AP v7 resend?

I'm sure that we will start getting new WU's before midsummer 2015, or at the very latest December 2015...

Until then, at least we have the message board, so we can whine and complain :-)

That goes on when we have work as well. So everything will be the same as normal!

Now that you say it, I realize that it's true. So, the only real difference is that we're having lower RAC than when we had WU's to crunch.

Some though with very low RAC, will lose the ability to post pretty soon. Some of those I will miss, some I will not miss so much :-)

It's still running. Apparently it has slowed down over time. It's still got 16.5M rows to go. So it'll be another two days before I can tell you how many more days it will be.

3-days since that update now. Anyting new you can tell us?

I have a whole lot of NOTHING on SETI main, and just to keep the icicles away from my computer, I run 3 CPU WU's at a time from Beta.

The last time I got something from main, was a couple of days ago, when I got 2 resends.

I do not complain though, my next electricity bill will be much lower than usual :-)

Wow, it surely was a long time since we only had 1,312,006 MB results out in the field, and it's falling with (as of now) 7,738 results/hour.

Will this ever gonna work again?
Don't let the volunteers crunch too much on their backup projects, f. e. Einstein, etc.
When they see the credit given there, they might give up on this... :þ


True, when people get used to the extremely much higher credits of their backup project, they will abandon SETI in droves.

That'll of course benefit those of us who stays. More work units for us, and much easier to get them, once the project starts splitting work again :-)

SETI Beta is my only backup project. Any other project is of no interest whatsoever to me.

Posted 5 days ago by Sten-Arne
I've been having the same cell phone for over 5 years now and it most certainly isn't dead yet:)

I've had my cell phone for a few years too and it doesn't hve a scratch.

I've had my latest phone for 1 year and 5 months, and there isn't one spot on the phone which doesn't have at least one scratch mark :-)

Days?
Weeks?
Months?

One might wonder....

19) Message boards : Number crunching : remaining AP v6s (Message 1602261)
Posted 7 days ago by Sten-Arne
At 2210 UTC

382
6
338.70

Results returned and awaiting validation: 147,550

That last number is rather dismal. The repair of the AP database seems to be taking a lot longer than Eric said.


We might as well prepare ourselves for the possibility that the informix database have reached its limits, and that they may be forced to move the data to another type of DB software.

That may very well take weeks....

And with no more MB tapes to split, we could be out of work for the rest of the year.

Merry Christmas Setizens :-)

it's really quick now, not like before.

Edit..

Looks like they have added more tapes to be split for MB


The size of those tapes will make them go away within minutes, once they start splitting them.

They are from the bottom of the barrel.

Edit: And the AP DB is still not fixed it seems. No AP's being split. The small MB tapes will be gone in an hour.


Next 20
