How many WU's do one of these tapes hold? Are they using like LTO-3 tapes or something? I am curious cause I deal a lot with backups.

This one 91877145 looks like it's going to be a genuine 85.40! Two results in so far, both with 'proper' FLOP-reporting clients.

[edit] AR = 0.097183 [/edit]

[2nd. edit] It's from that 11oc99 tape people have been complaining about, and it took b****y ages to crunch. Maybe there's something worthwhile buried in all that noise! [/edit]

I just had a VLAR which granted 88.33. That's the highest I've seen in awhile.

That's four high claims so far today, all "genuine" (i.e. not inflated by obselete BOINC clients), and all from the same tape.

Who was listening to what at Arecibo on 11 October 1999?

My guess is they were swinging the receiver around a lot on that day resulting in a higher percentage of VLAR's than normal.

Doesn't VLAR suggest they were focusing on a small region? If they were swinging it around, I'd expect VHAR.

Very sorry I did not notice which wu but about month or two ago I got some 80's in maybe 2-3 wu's. At the time I just wondered whether this was some calculation timing score something. Perhaps many people might got that score whoever had a chance to share that 1999 tape.

OR WAS THIS MATTS SOME MESSAGE THAT SOMETHING REALLY SERIOUS about one of 1999 tapes!!! ;-)

94.72 Mind you, atm... only one quorum member other than me has reported, and that was a "compute error".

Still waiting for the quorum to be completed, and validation, as of time of posting.

WU number is: 11oc99aa.8109.20321.804812.3.110_1

Guess what??? October 11th again!

Sir Ulli! Good of you to drop by with another one for my collection.

Yes, it's another one from that 11 October 1999 tape. I've got WUs from 91872539 (Alinator) to 91883957 (littlegreenmanfrommars), all with an AR of about 0.09, split from tape between 14:48:03 and 15:54:36 on 20-Sep-2006.

Sure looks as if Arecibo was studying something quite intensively on 11 October 1999....

Here's another from 11 Oct 99. My PII-300 hasn't finished crunching yet, but according to the other two that have completed it, it will be an 88.something.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=91880684 (sorry about getting lazy with the URL).

My PII-300 still has about 14 hours to go which will put it at about 90 hours total to crunch this one WU.

Since you've got a live one in captivity, so to speak, a couple of questions:

What was the original time estimate when you got it - anything like the 90 hours it's turning out to be? My first one was vvveeerrryyy slow (by the standards of the machine that crunched it!), and it knocked my DCF for six... (over 0.47 when I thought to look, 14 hours later: it's back to 0.35 and falling now).

Do you feel comfortable copying the downloaded WU data file, and looking inside the copy with a text editor to get, in particular, the RA and DEC figures that say where in the sky it was collected from?

Most of the ones that I have are small ones roughly averaging to about 30 - 60 credits, and then those two big ones. Maybe this info might help maybe not.
