Would someone be able to clarify if they have or have not been analyzing anyone of the WUs that we've been crunching? If they haven't been analyzing any of the data why weren't they?

I am totally amazed at the number of crunchers who have been attached to S@H for close to 20 years and have just now made a first post. I am not criticizing, we all participate in our own way. There are many more who have made just a 2nd , 3rd , .. 5th post. There will be manty many more of course who will chose to not verbalize (the silent majority). Many of course will never have looked at this forum yet they continued to contribute year after year.

Just an observance I wanted to make. not a judgement or criticism. Thank you all for being part of the Seti family. It has been an interesting 20 plus years and maybe, just maybe we will be called back to start anew. Without trial there can be no error. without error one will never know it was being done incorrectly. Even if we don't find ET hoefully we will have learned how to better search..

Live Long and prosper. Stay safe and adjust to the new realities of the world.

As my Profile states. Despite my reservations regarding this succeeding in finding intelligent life:

"I love this attempt"

But for real, nobody evens knows if that is true. Since the data was never analyzed.
We could even has found several ET's communications or not a single one. Who knows?

I will be running the program full force depending on the temperature on all my computers till the bitter end except for when I'm playing "The Division" which seems pretty appropriate for todays current events.

In many ways, this is very exciting news. All sorts of intriguing stuff could emerge... Or, um... quite a lot of not... But whatever the outcome, I will always feel immense pride to have been part of the search. Thank you :)

Started House Dorrycott in 1999, 21 years now. Three accounts, eleven computers, five OS's and the end comes. Say, weren't we guaranteed a starship when this ended?

I'm gonna ride this thing down to the ground and the eagerly await the results of the analysis.
My biggest regret is I probably won't get to celebrate 21 full years of crunching this thing.

Certainly. A sacrifice of a virgin in a vulcano will be fine too.
Anything for the last day of S@H as we know, is valid.

I agree, find an active vulcano is a lot more easier.
