Ugh, these people have the luxury to only work when the sun is up? Bah!

When I'm at work at 8am this time of year at the Northern Hemisphere, there's not been a sun in my life yet! If it wasn't dreary as today, it usually is down as well when I go back home at 4.45pm. I'll have to wait till end-of-January to be able to see the sun still at the end of the day.

And I wonder why people think that us Finns are grumpy people ;)

Just visiting, Australian Institute of Physics Congress (gwgl AIP2014). Then back home to Byron Bay for the rest of the month before returning to London (any local s@h-ers in BB feel welcome to contact me).

Does anyone know how much data do we have know?
And how long until the end of WU?

WUs should continue indefinitely, unless something happens to close down the Arecibo observatory.

But there's no guarantee that there won't be temporary pauses.

You didn't get me...let me try to rephrase:

Right now we have more computational power on SETI@home than it is to calculate...so the AP project was launched, to have that extra computational power used!
BUT, even that is not enough...so pauses would be frequent between 5TB disks comminng from Arecibo & the last units!


And I ask it now, 'cause we have to manage the GPU/CPU usage then to some other projects on lower scale... ;)

It will also be interesting to see how the computing power changes when everyone gets new computer for Christmas and starts runnning 2 compters, and a faster one (at least for awhile)

There are people that only run 2 computers? I only have around 30 or so. I didn't that that was very many.

Well, my 24-CPU setup got a slew of about 24 Wu's last night some time, all with filenames ending end _2. So apparently, I'm doing a bit lf "validating". Better than nothing I guess. My personal goal is to reach a total 20M WU's by the end of the year. Prior to the ongoing shortage, that was easily going to be obtained around then end of November. Now, with my total just over 19,980,000 and the fact that 4 hard drives of raw data are on the way, I just "might" do it. But we'll see.
I still remember my first year of doing this back in the early 90's with a 2400bps dialup modem on a "lighting fast" 200Ghz processor with an "astounding" 4MB of memory. I was disappointed that I was but one WU short of 1000 at midnight, December 31st of 1997-1998 I think.


is my memory a little funny? i started seti classic right at the begining under the name of GiGaBaNE (account lost to the ether). if my memory serves (which does not happen very often), Seti was out before the pentium chip...i was crunching on a DX120 and was very pleased as most people i knew only had 100mhz ;)

I hate to confirm, but your memory does not serve you this time. The Pentium chip was released in March, 1993, at 60MHz and 66MHz speeds. The Pentium Pro was released in November, 1995; the Pentium II, May 1996; the Pentium III (or in Intel marketing the Pentium !!!) was released in February 1999 at 450MHz and quickly ramped up to 1GHz by the end of the year.

As I said earlier in the thread, SETI@home opened it's doors in May, 1999, which means it was the Pentium III that was just released three months prior. That isn't to say that you weren't using a DX120 or that most people you knew weren't using 100MHz CPUs, but the Pentium was out a good 6 years before SETI@home was public. ;-)
