I've been a member since 16 Sep 1999... with a quite a few breaks unfortunately. Sad to see this go.

Juan, would setting our hair on fire also be appropriate?


Or covering our head/faces with ashes? Come to think of it, if you did set your hair on fire the results would cover your head/face with ashes..... hmmmmmm.....

I've crunched nowhere near as much as a lot of people who have been around less than I have.

But none the less, I am happy with my contributions over the last 20 years, 6 months & 27 days.

Just realised that I started my account on 30 August 1999.

I wonder if there is anyway we can offload the amount of "Admin work" that is required of the Seti@Home servers so that we could continue processing on the AstroPulse project?

By moving to an AP only project the reduction in volume should make it a lot less time consuming to keep it running. The DB would be a bunch smaller at least at the beginning.

And the project team might be able to get grant money for a Pulsar search that just also happens to look for S@H signals since the AP process can also find those.

YOU asked more or less the same question a couple of days ago (https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=85371&postid=2039862), and I'm going to refer you to the answer you were given then:

I'm afraid there is no great sense in it.
Pulsar search approach used in AP quite simple, it's good for diploma work indeed but... Think Einstein@home find pulsars (and it FOUND them indeed in a number) in much more sophisticated way.
So, if you as me like Astronomy and want to continue to be part of real astro-physics (real means not modeling) worth to consider to join Einstein@home while SETI is on hold.

I'll certainly be loaning some GPU power to Einstein@H.

Berkeley seems to have found a new SETI project.

Darn, there wasn't any mention of the back end data processing in the article.

Thank you for allowing me to help. I wish you success in your upcoming papers which I would be interested in reading.

SETI@Home has been a part of out lives for over 2 decades WOW! So sorry to see it go...

Thanks to the SETI team for allowing us to be a part of your project. Clear Skies!

I have read the Berkeley Online News article on the optical PANOSETI project. There is no mention on who or what will process the huge stream of data provided by telescopes with 80 mirrors each. Will it be done by a distributed volunteer computing effort like SETI@home or by some supercomputers? I think the second hypothesis is more likely.

On March 31, the volunteer computing part of SETI@home will stop distributing work and will go into hibernation.


Well I have been on SETI since 199x? It is so long nowthat I cannot remember, in fact I even lost my old account when BOINC came around and forgot how to log in or merge it over...

Been a hell of a ride, I still have a PIII laptop processing data for SETI and I decided to sign off now using it, because I first signed on using it!

Shows how much we have done since then, and how technology has advanced... I think it is incredible that I could use the same PC throughout the entire 20 years! Only SETI continued to support and use hardware from the day it started!

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 quite agree....what have the admins/researchers/backoffice staff been doing with all the results that have been reported. Some sort of basic analysis must have been done, otherwise, what has this project been for?

It would be nice if (at some point soon) someone can give a precise run down on what the project has achieved over the last 20 years (apart from helping to warm peoples rooms, from all the heat generated) and any technical and analysis reports that have been generated.
