    Yes, appears to be the same issue here too. I checked their website but can't seem to see any news of outages.

    Edit: BTW I was browsing the S@H servers last evening, looking at their participant computer registry among other things.
    The fastest computers listed were SETI-benchmarked at ~50 Gigaflops IIRC, while the slowest included a collection of such antiques as a few Pentium-75's at ~0.06GFlops. Can't blame folks for their enthusiasm.

    The listing aggregate was just over 20,000 Teraflops.

    My two PC's have a few days of cached workunits so no issues there, but this morning my 8-core Android was starting to run out of work to do.
    So I just downloaded Einstein@home (via 'Add Project') to keep it busy in the meantime:

    https://einsteinathome.org/
    Einstein@Home uses your computer's idle time to search for weak astrophysical signals from spinning neutron stars (often called pulsars) using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the Arecibo radio telescope, and the Fermi gamma-ray satellite. Einstein@Home volunteers have already discovered about fifty new neutron stars, and we hope to find many more. Our long-term goal is to make the first direct detections of gravitational-wave emission from spinning neutron stars. Gravitational waves were predicted by Albert Einstein almost a century ago, but have never been directly detected. Such observations would open up a new window on the universe, and usher in a new era in astronomy.
    Edit: Unfortunately, the BOINC software runs only one project at a time; so I can't 'finish up' my pending S@H workunits while keeping the extra processors busy with new E@H workunits.
    I'm guessing that Berkeley will probably be able to take care of the issue this morning so it's probably a moot point.

    I'm glad you mentioned that I probably lost a day and a half because I'm using the default settings for the cache.

    Naw, better to be three minutes late posting to this thread rather than getting edged out on some awesome CPF B/S/T deal for example.

    ----------

    BTW, now ranked #311 for recent average credit; kinda fun to see CPF in the team ranking list now:

    Behind the Poland and Canberra teams, but ahead of Greece, CERN, Sky&Telescope, Yale, and Cornell - thanks to all for participating.

    Congratulations to millguy for taking home the gold. Seti must have a more serious problem than we thought, the site is off line this morning.

    Wow, amazed that SETI@Home is still going, at first I thought this was a zombie thread from the 90s!

    Also, thought everyone doing this kind of thing was into either Bitcoin mining or protein folding these days. First the X-files returns and now this. Coincidence?

    At the time of this posting, we're in the top 200! We're #200!

    http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/top_t...dit&offset=180

    Will we keep moving up or will we get knocked down again?

    I'm (well, my CPU and GPU are) doing MY part!

    To be such a small group I think we're making great progress. Of course millguy is blazing the trail so far ahead we can only track him with GPS while he stomps the high grass down for us. I just hope he doesn't run out of the nuclear fissionable material he must be using for power.

    Pretty cool, folks; #199 (out of 63,500+ registered teams) for output, good job.

    With regards to total workunits analyzed, CPF is now in the ~90th percentile as well.

    For being such a new team, it feels good to be ranked with the 'big boys'; Hewlett-Packard is only 5 slots above us with respect to output - but has three times the active members.


    Late afternoon edit: #196, HP is only 3 slots above us now.

    That'll teach them to use their OWN brand of computer!
