I feel like I lost an old friend here. Been in since the beginning. 6,504,607 final number.
I'll miss seeing the screensaver. Leaving 6 Watt Hours in the grid.
So long SETI. You made history and science and that's rare. You all should be proud.
Thank you for all the hard work and dedication over the years.

It will indeed be sad seeing the project wind down. I'm going to leave my machine doing it's thing knowing that some time soon it will stop picking up and sending back work and the cats will notice the drop in temperature in their room.

My machine will be ready and waiting for Seti@Home to send out new wu's, if that comes about, until that day I'll be crunching elsewhere, like over at Milkyway and maybe at Rosetta.

So, RAC means you cached or alloted quite many tasks for that of credit and validation?

We all are.
I always enjoyed our banter on the last person to post thread.

Good bye Seti
It was a noble quest, even if it didn’t find the Holy Grail.
