18 years Tuesday of last week. Sorry I missed it, but too much travel (Napa last week, Stockholm this week). :-)

Just noticed that I hit 17 years last month. Time flies when you're having fun.

Got it. Thanks. We'll just have to wait, then. Now if I could just get some GPU units...

With the new version 8 on SETI work units my computer has downloaded a few. However, they haven't started executing. These would be expected to run on the internal GPU on my I5 processor. I shouldn't have had to do anything, this change to version 8 should have been automatic.

Any suggestions on what to do? PrimeGrid is running fine on the main cores of the processor.

Thanks.

Sounds like a good day to "upgrade" a machine from 8.1 to 10 (Windows, that is). :-)

Wow, I forgot that I joined on May 20th 2009.

Happy anniversary to you all.

Mike


I think you meant May 20th 1999... :)

An interesting stat for the Class of 1999-05-20, of the 2,236 users
registered that Day, 350 are still banging away... :)


Out of the 190 that joined the day I did (11/7/1999) 26 have done something in the past month. Past day is a much shorter list. And I'm still #1 in total contributions for that class. :-)

There isn't another 15th Anniversary thread that I can find (time for new glasses?), so here's one for you all. On my 15th Anniversary with SETI. That's a lot of crunching. And a bunch of machines that are no longer with us.

There's got to be a 15th anniversary thread around here somewhere. After all, this is mine on SETI. :-)

There is a 15th Anni thread somewhere ....


I'm looking for it, given that today is my 15th anniversary on SETI...

Too much variation from place to place on the price per kWhr to make a valid guess. Cheap where I live (mostly hydro), expensive elsewhere. But, I'd bet there's a bunch of power being used to heat spaces holding computers crunching for SETI. :-)

I took a look at my prime machine for SETI (the other one crashed a month ago and I haven't had time to troubleshoot the box) and almost all of the jobs lined up are AP. I've never seen that before. Cool.

I passed 13 years a while back. Pushing 21,000,000 on SETI and 43,000,000 on PrimeGrid. I need some faster machines.
