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.


I'll go along with that. And I'll continue until I see firm hard evidence that what I am doing is NOT worth while. So far I see lots of people working their butts off and being involved in something they really believe in. I'm happy to help until I see a good enough reason not to.



I'm certainly not trying to talk you out of crunching for Seti, but the simple fact of the matter is that the total number of crunchers along with the number of WU's they crunch is irrelevant. The project simply does not analyze the data we return nor are there plans to rectify the situation.

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!!

Money is the key word. They don't have it. Eric has stated it several times in several threads, try reading them sometime and you'll find your answers to your questions.

I look at this and wonder what you are so worked up about, that you can waste all this time demeaning others who are trying to identify things that they have seen as progress... You have already mentioned that you are no longer "wasting cycles here." You appear to be fairly intelligent so why bog things down with all the negative crap?

At least people here are "trying."

Have a nice evening

Pappa

Sure is easy to sit here and complain. Wish I could learn how to do that.....


Read the link I posted. Regular users with vastly more coding experience than I have volunteered to help....guess what the response was?

I understand your point BrainSmashR, it seems very odd to have all that PC effort lying there unused. I'd prefer to let SETI@home do what they need to do and keep my eye on the bigger picture - that big black thing above our heads called the universe. I agree these issues should be resolved, but we also have to keep taking part and be part of moving it all forwards. No brakes on SETI@home please.

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

I have to agree. At the end of the day I personally am only using idle cpu time of computers that I leave switched on anyway.

It is because of Seti@Home that we have BOINC; and thanks to BOINC I can easily use the idle cpu of my computers for other projects I find interesting.

Sometimes I think we are alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we are not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.

LOL Well, if I hated SETI as much as others do, I might believe that.

The project is the one with the brakes on, with apparently no concrete plans to make any changes, not we end-users.

Once again, I'm not trying to talk anyone out of crunching for Seti, just trying to make you understand that it doesn't matter if every person on the planet crunches for Seti or not one single person at all.

The amount of data analyzed will still be zero.

At least as long as you keep it under control, you are allowed to complain. That is a vast improvement over the last six months.

I am happy that you have such concrete evidence that no one here is aware of, certainly proof that Seti is going no where...

Thank You

OK, what evidence do you have that the data is NOT being analysed? All you have done so far is just repeat the statement.

Thanks for asking that Chris. It is untrue, surely?

Rome wasn't built in a day, BrainSmashr. We've got to keep it going until it gets to the point that these features are available. ;)

That still won't make BrainSmashr Happy. Everything should just work, by clicking your heels and saying the magic words.
