Still only one splitter showing green, and it's not doing much (if anything).
Both systems out of GPU work, and what's left for CPU work about half of them are all shorties...

Work outages come and go but as usual the lack of communication from the people in the know stays consistent. I'm sure the usual minions will jump to there defense and yet the fact is popping a note on the homepage cost nothing and takes seconds.

Message 1692996 - Posted: 18 Jun 2015, 7:46:16 UTC

I sent Matt and Eric a message about the splitters being down this morning before I went to work.
Matt replied mid afternoon, saying that there was some kind of screwup coming out of the outage, and that it "went unnoticed longer than usual due to most of us being preoccupied at the Green Bank Telescope at the moment".

You're quite welcome...
I do get a bit irked at some of the comments regarding the Seti staff and comms with us, or lack of same, made by some here.

They are quite a busy lot, you see.

I wish some would try to respect that a bit more.
I certainly do.
I have learned that their busy schedules do not always allow somebody to be on tap 24/7, and don't always get a ready response to my comms with them either.

Meow.

I I understand where you are coming from. If something is not working right I just move on to another project or wait for this one to back up

It's the old caveat....
This is a volunteer project, and the project does not guarantee anybody that they shall have work all the time.
Given their resources, and the fact that Seti remains the most popular distributed computing project under the Boinc umbrella, I think they do pretty darn well under most circumstances.

Granted, us die-hard Seti crunchers would like to see zero downtime ever. But that is not a realistic wish, as much as we may hope for it.

For myself, I am satisfied that Eric and Matt do as much as possible to keep the project on an even keel, and at the same time moving forward with their other associated projects. And the advancement of the Seti project in general.

If I were not, I would not continue to do what I do here.

We know they are busy. I guess most of us is busy also. Still, if you deceide to do a project like this, you should at least keep a basic level of communication with the ppl that "work" for you. At least thats my opinion. I don't expect them to post on the forums every day (although it would be nice) but honestly, how long does it take to post a quick message on the homepage or the boards or send a tweet when somethings wrong? Not much longer then the reply to your PM.
And its not just that. Overall, I find it hard to get informations about the project. A few examples? I don't know if all the data is processed and checked for persistant signals without the ntpkr. I don't know if the work done at beta is just for testing or has scientific value also. I asked all this here on the forums, multiple times. And I got answers from the users here (thx for that folks!), but they don't know for sure either. I'm pretty sure that the officials read the boards, so it would really be nice, if they could drop a quick answer from time to time. In many cases a simple yes or no would be enough. Again: I don't expect long answers.

I have to agree with nx-01.
Think of the thousands of users, who put a lot of time in optimizing their rigs, buying expensive equipment, using a lot of electricity. All they want is to know, that this is not totally wasted, because the results are not processed and nobody is really getting any "real" results.

A little feedback is not too much to ask.

The "we do not have enough funding" is not an excuse for everything.

Ask for funding from nvidia,intel, amd or the electricity companies, who seem to benefit the most out of this.

Part of that time they don't have to check to make sure you are happy 24/7 is spent asking for money.

Perhaps you did not read msattler's comment that the outage went unnoticed. How would you expect the team to post a comment on something they did not know about? Under the circumstances I think they did a bang-up job...they noticed...they fixed.

Rasputin-they're understaffed and underfunded. The paid staff has many responsibilities. Posting in the forums is understandably not one of them and I don't blame them.
