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?


No but there was a rumor of a Seti Toaster.........

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.

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

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've been working with the project for 20 years, will miss it very much. Good luck in future endeavors.

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

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.
