So, this is how the volunteers Seth Shostack (Sleestak - Land of the Lost?) has been asking for, are treated? I am so pissed off I could shit razor blades! After I enabled V7 I could not even navigate any of my 3 browsers to Berkely university websites... much less the SETI@home. I had to format my drive and re-install windows because I even have a hunch about users in here now and their custom worms. SO EFFIN SNAFU!

Sorry to those who work hard here, but... deal with it. You don't know how many YEARS I heard Seth on ART BELL radio ask for volunteers and now.. well you prob heard... if not.. I will say it again IM PISSED!


Seth Shostack has nothing to do with SETI@home. Seth has not been asking for volutneers to SETI@home. Seth has been asking for people to join the SETI Institute, which is unaffiliated with SETI@home.

Seth Shostack is also a moron.

If you're having issues, you should really seek help in the Number Crunching forum. No need to fill this thread meant for News with complaints about how pissed off you are. Fix your problem instead of complaining about it.

It only makes sense that the Lunatics delay their installer until the rollout has had some time to take effect. You don't need a simultaneous release.

As an anonymous platform user myself that's been my opinion also.
Better to get the major rollout done & sorted before introducing yet more changes.

I have been with Seti@home for over a decade & have never head of Seth.
So i think you might want to go to his website & carry on like a tool. Whoever or whatever he is, he's not here.

COPY THAT. Again I said thanks to the code wranglers.. now I'm even more dazed and confused than previously. Yall donno Seth? WTF? over...

http://www.seti.org/users/seth-shostak Seth Shostak
Senior Astronomer
Degree/Major:
PhD, Astronomy
Curriculum Vitae:
Shostak-CV2009.pdf

Seth claims to have developed an interest in extraterrestrial life at the tender age of ten, when he first picked up a book about the solar system. This innocent beginning eventually led to a degree in radio astronomy, and now, as Senior Astronomer, Seth is an enthusiastic participant in the Institute’s SETI observing programs. He also heads up the International Academy of Astronautics’ SETI Permanent Committee.

In addition, Seth is keen on outreach activities: interesting the public – and especially young people – in science in general, and astrobiology in particular. He’s co-authored a college textbook on astrobiology, and has written three trade books on SETI. In addition, he’s published more than 400 popular articles on science -- including regular contributions to both the Huffington Post and Discover Magazine blogs -- gives many dozens of talks annually, and is the host of the SETI Institute’s weekly science radio show, “Big Picture Science.”

This is Seti@home, which has no affiliation with the Seti institute.
You're at the wrong web site.

Try here, the Seti Institute.

Yep, he's with the SETI Institute - totally different organization, but regularly confused with the Seti@Home project.

So, JR, did you ever get Seti@Home running on your computer, and is it successfully crunching V7 yet?

Still no explanation on what v7 does. Yesterday has come and gone...


As mentioned in this very thread, there have been other more urgent issues that have required people's attention.



Sorry, didn't see it through all the spam in this thread.


You will be assimilated...bunghole!

People, calm down.

Please read this message carefully.

The most SAH members are 'stock' BOINC/SAH users.
The BOINC D/L all what is needed from the SAH server automatically.
Just check the 'SETI@home v7' ckeckbox in the project settings.

I can't remember if the checkbox was automatically unchecked or checked as the checkbox was added to the project settings. Other topic. ;-)

If the member decide to use an app_info.xml file in the project folder, he, the member need to care about the installed apps.
He get this information before he install and use an app_info.xml file.


So the member need to look from time to time to the number crunching forum about newest news/apps. Here is the thread in NC about new 3rd party apps.
And what is to do if something like now is happen.

So app_info.xml file user don't need to insult the SAH admins if the PC don't get newest apps.

The SAH admins and the Lunatics crew work very close together.

But, the admins can do nothing if the members decide to use 3rd party (Lunatics) apps.
The SAH server can send new apps only if there is no app_info.xml file in the project folder.

Of course, the Lunatics apps are very welcome at SAH, but the member alone need to do then everything manually.
Install new apps, delete the app_info.xml file for to let run short time stock apps - like to the next Monday, and so on.

BTW. Because of the few hours no SAH today: Seti is down again.

In SAH Enhanced was searched:
Spike count: 2
Pulse count: 0
Triplet count: 5
Gaussian count: 0

Now in SAHv7 one added search:
Spike count: 2
Autocorr count: 0
Pulse count: 0
Triplet count: 5
Gaussian count: 0

Let the admins time for to explain what this new search mean.
Just one before, this will increase the chance to find extraterrestrial life.


Please, for to let clear this thread, please post messages only if the new SAHv7 apps are not running fine on your system. This will help the admins to find such messages easy and they can act.
If you have problems to get SAHv7 apps/WUs, come on over to the NC forum and write in the already available threads or open a new thread about your problem.
Thanks.

Thank you for your attention.

At the risk of being off-topic, I've been around, but very busy with life. Very excited to see v7 released, and excited for the guys in the lab with the colo move and all the various other things they've accomplished.

Donald - yes BOINC running SETI@home only still worked (apparently) on V7. But at the sacrifice of the command buttons defunct is not worth the hassle. I was running in a Windows XP pro SP3 limited user account and not only did it eff-up all 3 of the top browsers in there.. even in Adminstrator account after rebbot, the browsers were somehow blocked from any website like the default - berkely. edu or whatever - DUDE I JUST LOST EVERYTHING AND FORMATTED MY PC!!!
I'm just so over this crap. Heads are gonna roll - I can see others are peed besides me.


It sounds like you got a virus. With the number of users running the Lunatics optimized applications, I'd imagine if it were they who were responsible for this, others would be having the same issue.

I have used the optimized applications for many years myself, and I can attest to their code work being very clean.

So before you go around throwing accusations at people on this forum, I suggest you make sure you have all the evidence you need to back yourself up. Assumptions and anecdotes do not make proof-positive data!

SETI with all the pages were down during many hours last night (late your time) No connection to the database, or anything. It was a Berkeley wide network problem. http://ucbsystems.org/ Look at the gap in the cricket graph:

http://fragment1.berkeley.edu/newcricket/grapher.cgi?target=/router-interfaces/inr-211/gigabitethernet6_17&ranges=d%3Aw&view=Octets

And the result was that he formatted his computer drive?

No further comments necessary.

berkely. edu or whatever

Not whatever. www.berkely.edu and setiathome.berkely.edu do not exist. You're missing an 'e' in the address and the 'l' is in another place. www.berkeley.edu and setiathome.berkeley.edu will get you places.

Has in that case nothing to do with a virus, or with you being blocked. Just a wrong address.

But he said:

So I took that to mean he got a rootkit virus. But if indeed he reformatted his computer because the servers were down last night (I know, I couldn't access them either), then that is a very paranoid thought that could have been avoided with just a little extra trouble-shooting.

Maybe postid=1374920 could be interesting for the admins.

(...)
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6910524&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=
(...)

I looked to a few results with very low and with normal AP Credits/WU.

If your 'AstroPulse v6 v6.04 (opencl_ati_100)' results will compared with stock OpenCL app results: low Cr.
If your 'AstroPulse v6 v6.04 (opencl_ati_100)' results will compared with 'anonymous platform' results: normal Cr.

Hmm...

Maybe the admins need to look.

NO! Another case of me being at the wrong website at the wrong time? I'm so able to be wrong - and apologize. The website just happened to go down? I thought I had a worm. Needless to say that is unacceptable after all the "testers" etc. You all just lost me and anyone I will ever meet. Well, maybe I will cut you some slack in Heaven and offer you a hug. Nytol.
