I've done 156 work units over 4797 hours so far.

Today's my 3.000 year anniversary with seti@home, I joined March 6, 2002. My average CPU time is 30.75 hours, and I've completed more work units than 86.650% of the total users.

(can't you tell they love statistics?)

I don't think I'll ever be the one who's computer discovers an authentic extraterrestial signal, but hey, it's fun.

I used it for about a month, but then my computer started acting funny so I removed it.

I started using it in 1998, and stopped in 2002 when it nearly destroyed my computer.

2?

My old computer (400 MHz AMD K6-2, 96 MB RAM) used to do them around 90 hours apiece, while my current Dell laptop (1.6 GHz, 384 MB RAM) did them in 15 hours. But lately it's gone up a lot, to almost 40 hours. I'm not sure why, though.

For example, right now my data unit is 46% done, and it has taken 23.5 hours to process it that far. Seems slow to me (although they did change the data units several months ago, to search for more stuff).

I used to have it a while back but have since upgraded computers and never reinstalled it.

It's the original distributed computing program. It's run by Berkeley, and examines data from the Arecibo radio telescope to see if an extraterrestial signal could be detected.

Contact with ET, in other words.

That's when I lost access to the computer at work it was running on because the company went under ;-(

Haven't installed it anywhere else yet. Computers at work aren't powerfull enough and I need the CPU cycles at home for other things.



I wish I were flying

I have it. I am around 350 work units and am pushing 8,000 hours or so. I think I have had it for like 8 or 10 months or so.

On a side note, anyone know how to check for to make sure all the old Seti@Home info is getting deleted off your hard drive, so it doesn't keep taking up space?

In your seti directory, work_unit.sah is the file containing work data. It should be around 350-400K, and is replaced automatically when you send the results in.
