Our team is looking for fellow SETI@home crunchers who enjoy devoting their equipment to the project, but also enjoy hanging out and chatting with their teammates and others with similar interests on good 'ol Internet Relay Chat (IRC). You can view our team page here where you can get a link to our website, and join our team!



Hope to see you on mIRC soon! Happy crunching :)

Well listen, if we can raise the money towards the implementation of the NTPCkr, I think the S@H project would be all the better for it. It's a LOT of money, but surely we can pick away at it with some fundraising :) I assume that when you donate you can choose what you would prefer your donation to go towards in that here text box...I hope the read it, otherwise... :/
4) Message boards : Number crunching : NTPCkr Status - Video - Matt Lebofsky (Message 1692800)
Posted 20 days ago by Profile AkioProject donor
The only reason the NTPCkr got this video is because I inquired as to its status on FB when they wanted to do a Q&A. I kinda think that the NTPCkr isn't a top priority at this point...they were just responding to my inquiry with this video. That's what I get out of it, anyhow. That being said, if $30-$40k were raised to get the NTPCkr up and running, I doubt they would complain :)

Berkeley SETI Research Center on FB asked for questions that may be picked by a member of the team and answered in a short video. I asked about the status of the NTPCkr... Link here.

I appreciated a response, and I have to be honest, I had no idea that the hardware requirements needed to run the NTPCkr were so harsh.

Sorry for hijacking your thread, Lynn...I hope you don't mind. I'm just really excited about this :)

Per Advanced Television.

lluminate has completed a digital restoration of the iconic TV series, The X-Files. Retransferred from the camera-original negative, the show’s entire 201 episodes have been reassembled in HD using illuminate’s proprietary iConform technology. All nine seasons of The X-Files have now been released on Netflix.


Let the binge watching begin! (I'm already on season six via Hulu :) ).

David Duchovny interview per Entertainment Weekly

Well, now the truth about The X-Files reboot is out there thanks to star David Duchovny, or at least what he senses is the truth (these things are always a bit murky). Duchovny stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio [...] While he has only read one script so far, he provided a good handle on what fans should expect as a whole.

“I know there are only six [episodes] so there’s going to be a mixture of stand alones—what we always called monster of the week episodes—and the mythology,” said Duchovny. “Which is basically what this series always was, which is a mix of those things, and even in this limited version there’s going to be that mix. How many mythology shows? I don’t know. I imagine two or three, but I’m really just speculating—I don’t know. I think we are going to continue on with the mythology as it was, but obviously this is new and we’re going to try and teach an old dog new tricks too so we’ll see. I’m the old dog.”

So excited for X-Files to return, even if it's for a limited run. Got some updates on this story:

The X-Files begins production in Vancouver on June 8th according to Production Weekly.

The X-Files will return on Sunday January 24th, 2016 at 10 p.m. with a generous lead-in from the NFL, which hosts its NFC Championship that day. It will be a two-night premiere, with the show airing on Monday night at 8 p.m. in its regular timeslot.

14) Message boards : Number crunching : Why use CPU on SETi@home? (Message 1682576)
Posted 22 May 2015 by Profile AkioProject donor
My 2 i5 rigs' CPU's make up around 20% of their total RAC alone without fuss so why not use them?


I have to concur with my good buddy Wiggo on this one. Although my CPU may crunch slower than my 780 TI's, it still accounts for a good bit of the workload. But on a personal note, my Voyager rig was built for S@H specifically, so it would be silly not to put my i7 processor to use...otherwise it's just overkill for internet surfing and mIRC usage. (Yes, I still frequent good 'ol IRC, hehe)

16) Message boards : Science (non-SETI) : "One Earth Message" in the works by NASA (Message 1682091)
Posted 21 May 2015 by Profile AkioProject donor
NASA pondering added digital message to aliens aboard their New Horizons spacecraft.

This project, known as the One Earth Message, is being led by Jon Lomberg, who was design director for the "golden records" that were placed aboard NASA's twin Voyager spacecraft before their 1977 launch to teach any aliens that might encounter the probes about humanity and its home planet. [5 Facts About NASA's Voyager Spacecraft]

The goals of the One Earth Message are similar, but the new project would be a more global and collaborative effort, asking people around the world to contribute images, sounds and ideas for this farflung "message in a bottle."

"This is really a chance to try to think about ourselves from the long perspective," Lomberg told Space.com. "We'll never know if this extraterrestrial audience that we're designing it for will receive it. But we do know that the people of Earth who participate, who play a role in it — it can literally change their lives."

Well, as odd as it seems, my involvement in S@H has been banned by my wife until further notice. Even though upgrades to my rig were approved by her, the utilities bill that shows the power uses from said upgrades (two GPU's) have been reason enough for her to pull the literal plug on the cruncher. lol.

Ah well, she has a point...the bill jumped over double, and we have vacation time to plan for. So for now: keep on crunchin' folks. Hope to see you soon! (disclaimer: until I am ungrounded by the wife).
