What 2006 brought Seti Users during the year...

Obviously I could give the list, but that is not the point. I know many of you have seen Good Things that are Not Often talked about. Other things get in the way.

Here is your chance, to talk about things that you saw as an Improvement

Regards

Pappa

I saw that when you click on a persons id above their avatar, you can see all the BOINC projects they are cruching on and how many credits there are for each. Better still, you can click on your own id and see how your own stats are doing.

A LITTLE more civility and of course the new server and improved project software.
Also better communications with Admin. And better tech news.

I Desire Peace and Justice, Jim Scott (Mod-Ret.)

. . . better Communications with ADmin @ Berkeley and overall better

performance of SETI Client, along with a 'gathering' of more Posters

on the SETI Boards . . .

3 responses in 10 days.

I guess that's enough proof to support my opinion that the project is going downhill fast.


But hey, at least we can communicate with the Admins and the mods are being held accountable....because that's what Seti@Home is all about, right? After all, it took preference over analyzing the results of all the WU's we've been crunching over the last 7 or so years.

Sad....

It doesn't need FIVE things to make a vast improvement....it only needs one.

Start work on the code needed in order to analyze the data we have been crunching for years.

EVERY other "problem" is insignificant in comparison.

I wouldn't mind being able to see a list of say, the top 100 candidates.

Even now, "someone" is placing more emphasis on deleting my signature instead of working on the code.

You'll just may as well ban me again, dude. It's not like I'm wasting my cycles on a broken project anyway....not to mention we don't all find the female body to be offensive.

I arrived here at SET@home earlier this year very skeptical about why so many people were wasting so much effort on a useless task. But here I am now with more credits crunched for SETI@home than any other project.

Anyone can help out with all sorts of other good endeavors, and I still crunch on multiple projects. But SETI@home has something that is as exciting as the Arthur C Clarke books that I once picked up almost every day; an excitement based on a belief that someone has to make the effort, or we'll never get away from what limits us to this Earth. It might be sci-fi, but it's worth trying to make it a reality; to find the technology and resources to improve things for all. (Find it 'out there', or find it in trying to get 'out there'). And most of all, be part of the sense of adventure.

You don't need any other reasons to take part in SETI@home or to donate.

The problem here is that you don't seem to understand that our effort is being wasted...and apparently has been since SETI@Home joined BOINC.

I can only hope the data we've been crunching is stored on a hard drive somewhere for future reference rather than being deleted on a regular basis.

Well Brainsmasher has a point if what he is suggesting is true, in that the data that we have crunched is not being analysed.




http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=36364

There's all the information you need. So many people know the truth now that they no longer try to keep it secret....of course that doesn't mean they're being completely open about it either.

After all, it would seem this is the first you've heard about it. It was just brought to my attention a couple of weeks ago.

No process is 100% efficient. If they are doing what they can, then I'll do what I can with the PC time I can provide. Seems fair enough to me. I hope things get better as the resources they have increase. [edit] if the donations keep rolling in and people still believe in Arthur C Clarke.

Again, you don't seem to fully understand. This isn't an efficiency issue, they simply are not analyzing the results of our WU crunching nor are they putting forth any effort to rectify the situation.

Apparently deleting my signature is even more important!!
