Just look what you are crunching to be sure you work is actually helping the close of the Science DB ASAP.
Or you could only been crunching already validated/invalid WU what is a waste of crunching & electric power.
Unless what you are looking is just for the credits of course.
Concentrate on crunching the WU who has not validated and requires the extra wing men.

WU like this are the target: (i use some of mine as example since your hosts are hidden)

https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=3918644941
https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=3953928229

WU like this are a waste of resources since they already has the canonical result.

Yes i know is a tedious work. But that concentrate your host crunching power where is rely needed.

. . Unless the Berkeley crew are prepared to pull the plug on outstanding Tasks and 'retire' them we still need to process those 'waste of time' tasks to close them out.

Instead of process you could simply aborted. That will have the same effect. And you not loose precious crunching & energy.

Well now!
4/27/2020 2:43:46 AM | SETI@home | Scheduler request completed: got 117 new tasks

At least that makes it clear I'll go way over 7.5M, and can also put them on hold for a bit and clear that MilkyWay@home queue that's about to time out otherwise. Those I had left so far would have just, barely, put me above that, and with these... suggestions to cancel WUs that already have 2 results, thought I'd end up just short regardless, but as it is, will go through these to get to those that actually need more results first.

. . Good luck getting the owners of these dud hosts to actually do something like that, I doubt if any of them read the message threads. They will just ignore the whole thing until something or someone says Bye Bye.

I understand is something impossible but is the simple true.
If the canonical result was already reached anything after that is simple waste of our resources.

At least that makes it clear I'll go way over 7.5M [...]

Then take a closer look at your surprise first. Lots of noisy WU that need a super-quorum were sent today. These barely bring any credit (0.5 .. 3 credits per WU). Fingers crossed!
[EDIT:] Got such a batch today too. Half of them finish within seconds and a dozen of the remaining ones will finish early (overflowing after maybe 20...50 % of the regular chirp rates).

Yeah. I got a bunch too, but only about 30 of them bombed out. It'll give me a couple more days on my slow GPU, unfortunately, that's the type of work unit sent.

Most of what I've gathered is to take the load off the database during this final push, so we can get these work units validated, assimilated and into the science database with as little load or interruption as possible, so they aren't doing things like the daily to ease that burden.

It's the end of SETI as we know it.

Out in field / (results in last hour * 24) = about 20 days.
Stragglers after that for some time.

April 20 now about 5 days.
By May Day there won't be hardly anything left.

April 30 we are now waiting for timeouts. Up to 27 days now.
Seems like the ones in the field have been sent to users who shut down.
May be time to set deadline to a week to return on anything going out from now.

So that's it. After exactly 21 years (started May 23rd 1999) I've finished my last work unit yesterday: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=8704138288
Thank you all. This was a part of my life for more than half of my life time.

Just a few days short of 19 years' crunching, through the evolution of at least 4 machines, my Seti tasks have finally fallen to zero.
A wonderful endeavour, and the first project I joined.

If I might poorly quote (I believe) Arthur C. Clarke: "There either is or there isn't extraterrestrial life. Either is utterly mind-blowing."

Here's hoping something mind-blowing is found amongst all that data.
So long Seti, and thanks for the ride.

I would like to recommend the short story https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nine_Billion_Names_of_God by Arthur C Clarke to everyone as they finish their last few Workunits and Tasks

I found it kind of appropriate, as we are getting closer to the end of the current search.

. . I have no doubt there is extraterrestrial life, there have been some finds of limited evidence for that on matter from 'out there'. The question this project is addressing is "Is there intelligent (ie technologically advanced) life out there". That is a very different question and has a bigger ? at the end. It would seem unlikely that no would be the answer, but it is a big universe and has been around for a long time (measured in our life spans, both individually and collectively), so it is entirely possible many (even thousands) of technological civilisations have developed and disappeared before we got to where we are, or are only now blossoming. Many may come after we are gone. So the final refined question is "Are there technological civilisations out there now or at the time when the radiation we are receiving now was originally emitted*.

. . But if it turned out that we are the only technological society that would be amazing, If we are on the only planet with life, that would defy all reason and all the odds. Truly mindblowing.

Thank you for the hint, Keith T. It is on Kindle for 49 cents, so I just bought it quickly.
