Those who don't feel the project is worthwhile should probably find another project more 'worthy' of their computing time. (More work units for the rest of us).

I'm just here for the free toaster. I've been saving up my bread for the past 16 years and everything!

Don't get me wrong, I love the project, otherwise I wouldn't be here. But I would rather KNOW then have to BELIEVE. It's science, not a religion.

And BTW: Did it ever occur to anybody that there may be a link between the lack of fundings/donations and the lack of information/communication?

That point has been made repeatedly in this thread and others.

While I did ask to be pardoned for the potential blasphemy, do y'all really not like the question because of the potential answer?


(I had just watched Matt's recent video on the status of the NTPCkr, so it is a relevant question.)

Thank you, HAL9000.


Yes, thank you HAL.


From your reasonable answer, will the data from those new streams be merged into the unmanageable database or will they (hopefully) start another?


BTW, I do actively read the Technical News section, but sans Matt's or Eric's participation, activity is rather sparse.

Resources toward more data streams only allow us to add more data points to a database that is unmanageable (to ntpckr & staffing). More data only feeds into a vicious circle, which may have social science values, perhaps?


Please expand on your statement/question(highlighted).

Your question seemed to be "Are we looking for aliens or is this s social experiment?". Is that an accurate summary of what you were asking? If SETI is a social experiment. Then the guys in the lab are subjects as well. A lack of resources doesn't change the science of what is being done.
Just because you can't proceed to step two, right now, doesn't make step one irrelevant or not the science that you want to be done. It could take years before for what is done today to be of use. It could even span generations.

That isn't known, but it was started in the NTPCkr video that they are working to make the data more manageable. So we will have to see which of the two things happens first. It might turn out that the Green Bank data gets put in a separate db server all together. Which might also require a 2nd NTPCkr server.
Before NTPCkr I believe there was a similar processes, but it wasn't designed to be "near-time". Probably based on what they used for classic SETI@home. I think is so slow that it isn't of much use. So NTPCkr would, once working, give almost real time candidates to our returned results.

I really don't mind if the data we crunch now, isn't analyzed in near time. I'm mostly here for the promised free toaster, which I hope will be delivered before my 70th birthday.

What I really wan't though, is known to all, and it has two letters, beginning with an A. :-)
