Just noticed I have been crunching on and off for 10 years. I look back and and amazed at all the changes that have happened in this time. Seems like a lifetime ago.....Can't help but wonder if we are even a little bit closer to finding anything....

We're looking for one needle in a nearly infinite number of haystacks -- we're going to have to be incredibly lucky to find anything.

... but what if we do? Knowing for sure that we're not alone, that will change everything.

** Falconfly **

Saw something shooting up the top participants list towards me at 414 and then it was gone just as quickly.

Impressive set of hardware in your list with equally impressive RAC - I hate to think what your electric bill is ..............

Watch out for the sonic boom when you hit the sound barrier!

Just revisited the Thread for the 8 Million, that sure went quick :D

I managed to get to about M1.3 (130k RAC) with some 800k pending, clocking in 11th place overall in RAC.
Not too shabby for a mere few weeks production that didn't even run at full efficiency (had some troubles with the CUDA boxes).

Power consumption was indeed quite high, peak usage was some ~4800W of pure crunching power. Since the 10 year anniversary race is over, I'm in the final process of winding down.

Now it's time for optimization of power consumption again.

PS.
Current power bill is 312 Euro or 442 US$ per month :p
