Well, that sucks. On the other hand there is the question of what to replace it with.

Fire sale on used hardware? :|

Good night everyone, i will drown my sorrows in a bottle of an old single malt.

Yes, my timing was very bad as usual. Just purchased upgraded gpus for Seti. The other projects would have been perfectly happy with my existing gpus.

Hopefully not an entire bottle?!


Here's a beer to a new beginning!!

And an expanding Nebula search...

HIBERNATION....

That means there is a chance of waking up and finding new work one day. Will be ready when it does.

Well with last WU's, from me, probably uploading in early April 2020 I will be just under 21 years at this. Like many others my fist machines were small and either 8 bit or 16 bit systems in a galaxy some where back in time.

My start date was May 18th 1999

Soon my current Seti cpu / gpu clock cycles will go to other good projects.

Thanks for the comradeship.

This news of SETI@Home makes me strangely sad. First at work, and then just at home with semi-retirement I’ve been pumping up results for fifteen years, soon to flatline.

But I understand the priorities of the researchers. Perhaps some of the processing associated with GAIA or other space telescope(s) might find their way to our hungry CPUs.

You get used to your cores supporting one project, I guess, so this is what BOINC project withdrawal syndrome feels like; it had to happen sometime, I guess. :-(

I just looked around in this thread and noticed only 4 members had joined SETI@home earlier than I did.

I have been on and off with this project for more than 20 years with my nimble hardware. I feel sad it has to go to this stage though I know it will eventually.

Thanks for the past 21 years of letting me be a part of a noble quest for the search of "something out there."

I am also sad. I have run my home computers doing SETI work continuously since 1999. Think of the electric bill I can now start saving!

Been a long run. In the early days, it would take almost a week to crunch 1 task with a single core CPU. The last (used) computer I bought has 2 CPUs for 16 cores / 32 threads and can get thru 150 tasks in about a day.

I was so close to my 20 year badge too (0ct 2000), good luck on your next project. It's been a journey so much has changed in the world we live in and keep looking up everyone!

At least I'll hit my 20 years on 11 March. It was a good run while it lasted!

Hi all

I'm another of the "joined in 1999" club, as I first spied the original SETI@home "screensaver" program, out in the open, at a computer fair, in Melbourne, FLA in 1999.

When I got back to the UK, I downloaded the program and started crunching, in the days of dial-up.

I'm a bit surprised that the Nebula project is going to start...and that analysis of 20+ years of crunching is going to be undertaken - as I thought that was being done "behind the scenes" after our completed and validated work units had been uploaded.

Maybe some analysis was being done, but only pretty minor stuff?

In the meantime, it's a great shame that more radio telescopes had not been introduced to the "Breakthrough Listen" project - as Arecibo could only ever monitor a very small percentage of the sky and so it was always a possibility that we were looking in the wrong direction.

In the meantime, thanks to David A, Rom W, Eric K and all ther other staff (past and present) for all their efforts.
regards,
Tim
