Hmm, it seems to be only GPU tasks for *MESSIER031* overflowing in enormous numbers for everyone, no matter which GPU app they're run with.

Does anyone see the same for *MESSIER031* running on the CPU?

This is filling up the database quickly now, seems as if 90% or so, of all *MESSIER031* tasks on GPU is overflowing.

I suspect something fishy is going on here.....

I had two tasks on the 32-bit Linux CPU. They ended soon.

I remember reading that Green Bank will scan the local group of galaxies, including the Maffei galaxies.


I thought the targeted search would only be the most promising Kepler objects... the furthest I know of is Kepler-40B at 8,800 ly. M31 is about 2.5Mly, so a signal from M31 would have to be at least (2.5M/8800)^2 ~ 80,700x stronger to be detected. Assuming evenly distributed signal power, we're the reciprocal of this as likely to discover something at that distance. If signal powers are more commonly what we can produce (into the megawatt range) it's even more unlikely or impossible (plus at that angular resolution isn't it going to be drowned out by the rest of the galaxy?) Hrm.

Edit: Maybe for these observations SAH is just "going along for the ride" as we do with Arecibo.

See breakthroughinitiatives.org/News/1
It says they will search the 100 closest galaxies.

How about updating the "kiosk" Data Activity page, now that we also have GBT data flowing.

It still says "Current data is entirely collected at Arecibo. We are working to include data from GBT and LOFAR."

The VLARs go out to ATI GPUs, but are held back from NVIDIA. If I could find a way to send VLAR to only NVIDIA OpenCL and not NVIDIA CUDA, I would...

Eric, can you (or someone else from a team) update articles here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/beta/cuda.php
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cuda_faq.php
& write another article for a quick FAQ for a ATi GPU's...

With a new v8 of SETi@home, we probably have some other min requirements than from v7...also, minimal requirements on a chip setting - from my knowledge for nVidia it's 8000+ cards that have CUDA cores...
But also, lack of ATi GPU articles give people less info about what they can use...& nVidia has about 200TFLOPs, while ATi GPUs have about 55TFLOPs! So people might need some new info, which card to get?!
