Thanks for the info! :)
Super interesting and hopefully it will give us some nice information.

All computers have the same email adress, and every computer is at least connected to Seti. However each computer has a different secondary project, or third.

How long can it take before I can go in to "My account" and see the
"Projects in which you are participating" with all the projects i am in? Because for the moment it is missing two that I am participating in (both have completed calculations). These two is from a different computer though.

Hmm, I thought that telescope would be up in the air by 2014. What happend? :)

Politics in the USA.


Thats shame beyond words. I was so looking forward to seeing pictures taken by the telescope. Now I have to wait 4! more years! :/

Well hopefully Chinas engagement to space science will fuel the west's fire for it.

The woman says the light is so strong that you can hardly look at it, but there is no illumination anywhere... yeah.

Just found out my mistake. I did not know you need to create an account on every project you want to contribute too. I thought it was enough to just create an account here (So I tried to login to this account when using another project). But how does the information regarding all the projects work, is everything gathered on this page or do I need to be active on all pages for all projects to see my combined history?

Best regards

NOTE: To get your accounts on different projects to synchronize, there must be a path from project server to client to project server that covers all projects. e.g. If client A talks to projects X, Y, and Z, and client B talks to projects O, P, and Q, there is no connection between XYZ and OPQ. These two will be treated as distinct in the stats sites. Due to a long standing bug, make sure that the project that you joined first is shared among all clients, at least for a little while (number of projects + 1 connections).

I am going to assume that you are asking about inter project stats.

Each project is independent, and upates an XML file with the statistics for all clients that have actually been granted some credit. The external stats sites then download these files from the project servers and compile a database of the stats. One of the items is a Cross Project IDentifier. The stats sites use identical CPIDs as the key to matching accounts across projects. CPIDs are based in part on a hash of your email address. So, make certain that you use the same email address at all projects.


Thanks alot for the information. I thought it could be something like this so I used the same email and password for all of them. I am beginning to get a bigger understanding of how all things work which is always nice.

10) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : How to differentiate CPU from GPU task? (Message 1161217)

You have ATI/AMD Radeon - SETI still do not have standard Application for ATI/AMD GPUs:

In other words, I cant use my GPU?

Hi.

I just tried to login with my laptop after installing BOINC on it. However it stated that the password is wrong when I tried to login to the account that is active on this computer right now. Does this not workm or am I mistyping it 20 times in a row? :)

Best regards,

12) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Power consumption (Message 1161060)
Posted 1025 days ago by Profile Davoud
the pentium III's should be put in a museum. they aren't very fast and can easily be outran by any $20 modern CPU.


Is it not worth to have 2 extra P3 compare to nothing if he is willing to use them?

Am I mistaking or is it not as easy to just go in to the "Tools -> Computing preference -> Use GPU" ?

Should that not make me use my GPU? Just installed the BOINC Manager an hour ago for the first time, thats why I am asking :)

Best regards,
Davoud
