Of course... only new work generation has stopped. Result return including re-sends for timeouts, errors etc. is going to continue indefinitely until it's all completed (that's what we've been advised, at least.)

Thanks for answer. Looks like they we'll be accepting results and resending results that didn't validate for a while.

As promised, we've stopped the process that puts new data into the queue today. Data distribution will continue until the files shown on the status pages are done. We'll be accepting results and resending results that didn't validate for a while.

Sitting and watching each of my systems slowly churn thru their tasks toward ....silence. Originally I was going to name them Huey, Dewey and Louie after Bruce Dern's sidekicks on Silent Running but had more than just the three.

I still have a lot of work units to chew through, not least because of all the sucky little Raspberry Pi’s that I’ve been using: final jobs complete in ten days or so, no doubt.

Meanwhile, by way of a sign-off... here’s the story of Ale-in Life Form, a beer fermented with waste heat from SETI@home calculations. https://capacify.wordpress.com/2020/04/01/beer-and-number-crunching/

All the best!

I'm still getting a few work units here and there, no doubt from unfinished and/or unconfirmed units. I imagine if I just keep my computer on (as usual) it will probably be snagging work units here and there for quite some time. The last due date in what's left of my queues is now into June. However, I'm sure many of us (especially those that have been at this since 1999) kind of feel like:

One remaining on my 8 core workhorse (apologies to the unit, put in a ancient nvidia card with a pathetic amount of cuda cores and it's chugging along) This system (4 core) got a bunch and has none now. Lots of 2010's came through

Holding on to the bitter end?

I'm currently about an hour into crunching my very last CPU task on my main computer. Looks like it will finish in the next 30 minutes or so. All the GPU units finished a couple of days ago.

Interestingly, it doesn't look like the stats are keeping up... my "account" currently shows the same computer with 299 in progress units (all sent March 30). Strange, but it seems like that would be more likely to be accurate now that new stuff isn't going out any longer, the units being reported should be falling off quite rapidly. I do have quite a few units left to process on my laptop still. Given that it (a) has a pretty weak i3-2.4 GHz processor and (b) pauses SETI@home when Netflix, my browser, or DVD player app are running, that may be another week or so for that one to finish up.

Here's something though. While crunching this box (as measured by my UPS unit) generally averaged 180-200 watts draw. With just this last unit crunching it's pulling 54 watts. Once it goes idle I'm sure it will be about half of that. Good thing the warm weather will be arriving in a month or two. Without my air conditioning running in the apartment my power company might be wondering where I went. ;-)

I am proud to see so many people posting their feelings about the hiatus of SETI for the moment.

Many have hardly posted over the life time of their service.

They say it is the quiet ones that change the universe and I am sure that is true.

Well done people.

The forums will stay open for the foreseeable future as well as your teams personal forums.

Stay in touch and know you are important here.

Hi All.
I'm one of the thousands which is sad for SETI to come to the end, I recently(within last year) got a decent laptop to run it again after years of a struggling outdated one, I've been doing this back when a 486 chip, was the big thing this is my second account as I lost password and had to create second account :(
I've hoped I and thousands of others have helped to find ET .

My laptop has finally finished it's last seti project.

So
in Mulder's words "I want to believe" there is life out there somewhere.

Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
“Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.”

I just hope when you crunch the data you find results.

Thanks for letting me be part of the biggest networking project & probably one of the longest projects ever run - or feels like it.

Simon
