I am in the 9th year too.
Started with Seti Classics in 2002.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Why classic SETI@home is closing down and other facts of life. (Message 213285)

I personally have over 100,000 hours in computer time being donated under the seti classic project and after reading this set of “Here are some reasons off the top of my head that SETI@home Classic is shutting down” I feel a response is necessary to some of your points of perpetual misinformation, this all too typical of the computing environment.


I hope the existing problems can be resolved in a reasonable time frame, for if the storage requirements become too great, I will dump the completed results to date and project in general.


Perhaps, if some people had migrated earlier as requested for months on the Classic site, instead of racking up cheap Credits, Boinc-Seti would have been able to absorb influx of people. Instead the daily increase in users went from 600 to 4000. Tell me of any business that can handle that kind of growth overnight.
I for one do not consider your criticism valid and definitely not welcomed from a Johnny come lately.

From your numbers and your registration date, one has to guess you have a small farm. And YOU don't think you're partly responsible for the current woes.

I'm sorry if that offend you, but I find your post offensive

"I for one do not consider your criticism valid and definitely not welcomed from a Johnny come lately." --> Hardly a Johnny come lately as stated. That is the date of change over to the latest version on this notebook machine. If I can remember correctly, my classic start date was May 1994.

You did not offend me and I am terribly sorry you cannot handle reality!
Simple fact is as stated. Further during the overnight period, the following window was on the screen this very morning with a red circle with the white X, and stated:

Displayed window header:"setiathome_4.18_windows_intelx86.exe - Application error"

The instruction at "0x7c918fea" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "written".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

GO FIGURE? Just suspended the seti! At least until the software is more stable. Has nothing to do with waiting! Just reality.

Go suspend Windows (I did so). I am happy crunching with MacOSX now with REAL 64bit power in hardware AND OS !

Mine are all still pending.
But they are pending with the original date!
I think the extended time period is still not applied yet!

If you check the technical news and the main page of SETI project you will see, that there is still problem with the servers. Exactly the servers themselves are now working but the millions of connections requested are blocking the communication lines!
