It has taken me over 20 years, but I finally got the chance to give myself the Christmas present I've worked toward for so long: I went over the one million mark. I hit 1,000,261 as of 5:30pm 12/25/2019. I know that this is a mere pittance compared to so many others, but it means a lot to me. Keep on keeping on, everyone. Maybe one day this will all pay off.

Well I made it - 20 years on the 20th of May. I was hoping to get my first million by now but that will have to wait. I keep plugging along, slow but pretty steady. It has been quite a ride. And it will continue. Congrats to all.

I just missed getting on board when the project first went live (to the public) on the 17th. But I will have been helping for 20 years as of the 20th of May, 2019. I had heard about it some time before and was looking forward to participating. Watching the graphics grow as the calculation progressed was fascinating. At least once I got a preliminary graph that was the very model of what a positive hit should look like. (If I were a conspiracy nut I would have been convinced that the contact had been suppressed <grin>.)

Darrell Wilcox: You might also want to sign in to the 19 year anniversary thread, now. It was active fairly recently.

It may not mean much to those with "billions and billions" of credits, but my 900,000+ means a lot to me. I consider it to be a valid milestone. I'm hoping for one million by this time next year.

OK, I'm officially starting on my twentieth year; the nineteenth is in the books. Not much of a contribution, numbers-wise, but I keep plugging away. I'm hoping to manage one million by my twentieth anniversary :-) but only time will tell.

Congratulations! That is quite a milestone. I will be joining you in a few days. I wonder how many of us from the early days are still plugging away. ( I still think that the original screen saver was the neatest.) :-)

I started 18 years ago today with a single iMac. It has been slow going since then but I have been faithfully grinding out the work throughout the years. I've worked some other projects, too, but I always kept something going for SETI. My contributions don't amount to much but every work unit helps. :-)

Scroll down a bit or search for "Welcome to the 18 year club". There you will find links to many of the other "Year" clubs.

I have been crunching now for SETI for 17 years, too. I haven't taken any breaks, but my total is pretty low compared to most of the rest of you. Nonetheless, I will keep plugging away. I hope we are looking in the right places and that we find the real WOW signal soon. Congrats to the veterans, the newbies, and anyone else with milestones to celebrate.

16 years ago today I joined this excellent research. Cheers!


You may also want to post your longevity mark in the 16 year club thread (you may need to search for it) and quite a number of people will soon be eligible for the 17 year club, although I don't think that there is a thread for that one yet.

EDIT: OK I found the 16 year thread:

I received the new 803 app but I am getting (and erroring out) PPC tasks instead of Intel (i686) tasks. I am running OS X "Tiger" on a CoreDuo (not Core 2 Duo) machine. No rush, as I am sure that this is a very low priority problem. I just thought I would let you know.

Hi folks,

Mac OS X issue was solved with seti@home version 8.03 published today.
Crunching is working well now.

As I own Mac with INTEL GPU and NVIDIA GPU i'm waiting for seti@home v8 GPUs apps.

Cheers,
Georges

I'm getting the same errors as several of the other Mac users. I say it is best to just wait it out. It will probably be fixed soon. I'm running OS X "Tiger" on a Core Duo (not Core2Duo) and all has been fine until now..

That's a lot of negativity for someone with so much money to spend on Teslas. IMO you should sell that and get some cognitive behavioural therapy.


That's not very nice. This person has been working since 1999. There's no need to be rude even if you don't like his comment.

I may be getting close! Hopefully another 15 years and then another


You may want to search for the 13 Year Club/Anniversary thread and post there, too.
