Congrats to all milestones!

BTW.
Is somewhere written at which steps are the milestones?
But ..also.. for some the 1,000 , 10,000 and 100,000 milestones are different far away..
Or.. how could be the calculation for the different RAC-milestones?

Or.. the milestones are all the time 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 ?
For example:
250 , 500 , 750 , 1,000 .

But then
1,250 , 1,500 , 1,750 , 2,000 ?

Or
2,500 , 5,000 , 7,500 , 10,000
25,000 , 50,000 , 75,000 , 100,000
250,000 , 500,000 , 750,000 , 1,000,000
2,500,000 , 5,000,000 , 7,500,000 , 10,000,000
25,000,000 , 50,000,000 , 75,000,000 , 100,000,000 ?

Ohh.. ;-)

Greetings Sutaru,

There are no steps for milestones. Basically, just set a goal to reach and when you get there, announce it. Personal milestones is up to each individual. For instance, my last milestone was reaching my 10th year crunching for SETI@Home. My next one will be in July when I reach my 5th year with BOINC. After that, my next will be when I reach 750,000 credits. I have even seen some users declare milestones for the number of posts made on this forum. lol :D

Milestones is what you decide them to be. Have fun!

Keep on BOINCing!

Your personal milestones are whatever you define them to be. Personally, I don't track cobblestones as milestones - machines have just got so much faster over the years that I can now add a million in a few weeks whereas such a number would have been unthinkable when I first started crunching SETI. In about 45 minutes, I hit a milestone that does float my boat - 10 years since I first crunched Classic (though I did take a few years furlough in the middle and missed that actual change-over to Boinc.

Milestones are personal achivements. As already discussed they are goals you set. Number of years, number of units, number of posts, and of course there's misfit with number of friends.

I luv the kibblestones...........
All 31 million of them and counting....
In a few weeks I will have been at it for 9 years.
I have risen to #31 in the WORLD for total Seti credits.......in about 6 days, that will be #30.
I am #4 in the SETI.USA team ranks for Seti....#117 in the world by RAC...
The Frozen Nehi still hangs on as the last non-server, non-cuda i7 in the top 20 computers on Seti...
And the Kitty City (Seti City), which I founded here, has risen to #13 in the USA.....

These are some things that float the kitties' boat....LOL.

You forgot your unique milestone:
Record number of time to return from banishment ;-P

Keep up the good work, good-buddy. My quaddie + CUDA was right on the Nehi's tail but I have now switched on my CPDN models again as they have been hanging around for a while and SETI is reluctant to rebuild my cache after a detach / re-attach to clean up the cache following the abortive attempt to upgrade to v6.6.34.

LOL....that's another stat I am working on....my MTBB (mean time between banishments)...longer is better...for everybody involved.

Looks like I will be one of the next ones to reach the 1 Million work unit mark !!

I never thought it would happen.

I am pleased, should happen today or tomorrow.

Out of interest how do people keep track of how many work units they have completed, is it by writing down how many are returned each day or by a program? I'm close to reaching a milestone of sorts that is my remaining ap unit will be granted creait I returned it on 26 Apr 2009 5:09:10 UTC there's another 124,313 ap units to be returned. Imo it would be a milestone record to have all ap units returned be for new ap data comes online.

Congrats to everyone else on their achievements

I passed 2,000,000 on May 26th. My results really accelerated after the Lunatics published the setup for installing a GPU properly and 6.6.20 came out. Thanks.

Congrats! That was an amazing host, and your next project seems very ambitious indeed!

Off topic, but is that the same ExecPC that started out as a BBS back in the 80s and 90s? ExecPC was one of my top favorite BBSes to dial into, and it always made me want to start my own BBS because it seemed so fun.
