I have stopped crunching...and now slowly drift into the darkness of void like thousands of others on S@H.
:(
And I am not the first quitter on S@H, and most certainly I shall not be the last one...

Wish results are made public...Hope we find them soon!

to Chris...

well, I forgot to add that with the technical aspects, I am also provided with intellectual clarity on this thread...
rather than reading out some technical jargon stuff it is always better to talk or converse with a human being.
it would be great if S@H declares you as an official P.R. or spokesperson n hopefully you will get paid for your good work...
and as far as I am concerned I have already put you on that level on a personal liking...
maybe if you keep going on and explaining n clarifying about S@H so generously n nicely, it might just be a matter of time before S@H makes you an Official PR.

I very strongly feel that the name of this thread should be changed...
instead of "Let's see some results!"..it should be changed to "Results!"
because I am getting more technical information from this thread alone compared to all or any other threads...
this is just what I need...great work people...Please keep up the good work...!!

JOB RESPONSIBILITY...

There was a most important job that needed to be done,
And no reason not to do it, there was absolutely none.
But in vital matters such as this, the thing you have to ask
Is who exactly will it be who'll carry out the task?

Anybody could have told you that everybody knew
That this was something somebody would surely have to do.
Nobody was unwilling; anybody had the ability.
But nobody believed that it was their responsibility.

It seemed to be a job that anybody could have done,
If anybody thought he was supposed to be the one.
But since everybody recognised that anybody could,
Everybody took for granted that somebody would.

But nobody told anybody that we are aware of,
That he would be in charge of seeing it was taken care of.
And nobody took it on himself to follow through,
And do what everybody thought that somebody would do.

When what everybody needed so did not get done at all,
Everybody was complaining that somebody dropped the ball.
Anybody then could see it was an awful crying shame,
And everybody looked around for somebody to blame.

Somebody should have done the job
And Everybody should have,
But in the end Nobody did
What Anybody could have.

CHANGE OF ATTITUDE...

The optimist knows the sun shines,
Above the clouds, though gray,
The pessimist sees the dark side
Of a gloomy cold winter's day.

The optimist says "keep on going.
don't give up when troubles annoy".
The pessimist thinks "what's the use,
life's dull and holds little joy".

The optimist is always thankful,
For the blessings of each day.
The pessimist keeps complaining
Of things that come his way.

The optimist and the pessimist,
Are opposites to the extreme;
While one sees opportunities,
The other only a broken dream.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist,
Do you see mud not the stars?
Like the two men in prison,
Looking out through prison bars.

Choose to become an optimist,
The negative thoughts cast out,
Replace them with positive ones,
Then life will be better, no doubt.

very very happy to finally see some of the real big guns at Seti@Home asking questions and introspecting...

I simply love the S@H project..but..disheartened in a way with it.

i am a new member, recently joined in, and proud to be a Setizen...

although S@H has probably the biggest n largest amount of members, still i observed that people do join in, crunch for a while n then just go silent n wither away.

it is great to make new members but equally important to retain the old ones as well..

even though this would be my last week crunching for S@H as i am going to fade away like alot of others...

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A POINT.THE ONLY REASON THAT KEPT ME WITH S@H UPTIL THIS TIME WAS JUST THE GOOD N KIND N SWEET FOLKS THAT I MET N HAD A CHANCE TO CONVERSE WITH AT THE FORUMS..THEY ALL ARE SO WELCOMING N WARM N NICE.

even the mods are good enough, although at times i was a little annoyed with them, but they do their jobs perfectly..

just wish S@H would go ahead n atleast try to be a little more resiprocative and not make this a one way affair.

Hmmn, great idea...finally a Change in Attitude for SETI@HOME.

It is quite understandable the aliens stay quiet n don't respond...but it defies logic as to why S@H behaves in the same manner.
(There are some things that everybody thinks and nobody says and other things that everybody says and nobody thinks.)

Maybe now the next best thing to do would be to think on the procedure of collecting storing processing analyzing and finally resulting...
(Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.)

I have no right to be on this thread...
never faced anything ironic...
never went through a trauma...
no nervous breakdowns ever...
never broke a bone...
not a single stitch on my body...
never been mistreated...

cannot be more than happy for myself n thank god for it...

but when I see meet talk to others suffering through something like this,

all my happiness withers away in moments,
n instead of thanking god, I protest n complain..

it is just unfair that a few souls have to go through all the distress,
why is it that I was given all the happiness, and others had to bear all the pain...

to Guy...

cannot disagree with your point at all...as the eternal truth remains the same, just that truth has variation in aspects and forms.
similarly there has to be a number of ways to do things right...certainly any or all paths would end up at the same destination...so the only thing important to do would be to keep walking through the woods...
I also have to agree that reaching the destination cannot be the only mission, the real fun is in the journey and the path taken...

but to take a break n camp around n remove the map n introspect as to where we are goin wouldn't harm anyone...
besides without any results it seems like a walk thru the woods blind folded which is no fun at all...

UNSEEN FRIEND...

Although you are a friend of mine,
and letters we exchange.
I wouldn't know you on the street,
and doesn't that seem strange?

You hold a place within my heart,
unusual and unique;
We share ideals and special dreams,
and still, we do not speak.

I picture who I think you are,
perhaps you picture me.
An intriguing game for both of us,
for someone we cannot see.

So for this friendship we possess,
we owe this mail a debt.
Perhaps the charm lies in the fact,
that we have never met.

I personally was amused by the story of thee WOW signal...had heard about SETI before as well.
decided I would join in the quest to search for E.T. Intelligence and immediately started crunchin WUs for seti@home.

only recently I woke up from the trance, paused, and introspected my actions...
I din't have a clue as to what I was doin...and when I spoke to a few others on the forums they din't have a clue about what they were doin either.

the only thing that mattered was to know that we are doin sumthin good...but nobody was bothered whether they were doin it right...blind faith sounds excellent in terms of religion, but is disasterous in the field of science.

and again I would like to specify the importance of results...SETI surely needs to be a little more proactive.

besides now the search for ET has transcended from the United States of America to an international platform,, so to view BOINC just as a software programme entiteled for the use of American Citizens only would be the most narrowest minded approach and it even sounds racist in a way...religion is earthly, but science is universal.

HOPE THE CREATORS OF BOINC AND THE LEADERSHIP AT SETI@HOME DOES NOT HOLD SUCH IMMORAL UNETHICAL NARROW MINDED RACIST VIEWS!

to Bob DeWoody...

I completely agree with your views...Seti@Home is still in the initial developmental phase, so obviously expecting a positive result right away would be unfair to the project.

But...I believe the creation of this thread is to request the S@H leadership to make the results public, and negative results would be much better than, compared to having no results at all.

Infact I would like to take this Opportunity and Enlighten fellow comrades and crunchers about SETI LIVE, which works on live feed...and instead of computing power it requires human visual assistance in order to track potential signals.

And I am sure nearly everybody has heard about PLANET HUNTERS which works on the principles of differences in illuminance fluxuation levels...and utilizes the Keplar data to identify Planets.

BOINC certainly has some great research projects in line with S@H as well.

MY RELIGION...

You ask me "what is my religion"?
Now what if I say I have None?
You'll be wrongly impressed,
And unduly distressed
So wait - I have only begun.

My creed in the sense that you mean it,
Has no single symbol, or sign.
Big, impressive, or small,
There is good in them all,
So perhaps Your religion is mine.

My doctrine is any that stands
For the honor and virtue of men.
For whatever we preach,
We're all striving to reach
A mutual goal in the end.

My church is the one that is nearest
Wherever I happen to be.
The place where men go
Their devotion to show,
Is good - and sufficient for me.

What matters the Name on the mileposts
That stand by the path you have trod?
If the pathway leads UP
Then at last you shall sup
With the infinite army of God.
