    New members always welcome.

    We've fallen back to #209, but when we're firing on all cylinders our team output is certainly in the top-200 worldwide.

    Well, the ongoing heat wave is peaking again so I'm forced to stop running during the day. There's just nothing else to do, my ac unit is just able to keep us alive after work during the day and still cycles on and off even at night. I will still run at night during the these dog days of summer then when fall gets here I can turn the crunching machine to high.

    The team is back in the top 5%! (Right now, we're #206.)

    Total credit: 10,585,351
    Recent average credit: 45,851

    I need to pull some computers out of mothballs-- there's only so much the ol' UltraZAX can do (and when I'm actually using it it suspends work on the project).

    I tried to upload a few completed tasks and get some new work but SETI was down for maintenance yesterday. Hopefully I'll have my laptop near wifi tmrw

    I'm going on vacation next week so that's nine days with the computer off. After that though it's getting cool enough to run 24/7 every day, hopefully I can make it up.

    Believe me I've considered it but the potential for Murphy's law to strike would worry me all week.

    Seti@Home actually revealed a defective processor for me, but I'm glad I was home for it. Running all 4 physical cores at 90% usage overnight, the system apparently rebooted. Later, I was gaming and the sound did the skipping CD sound like a DMA transfer error, and then the system locked up. After that, it'd fail to enter Windows unless I booted with only two cores active, so maybe core 0x2 or both 0x2 and 0x3 went bad. Got the chip replaced under warranty, thankfully. And now I usually do just 83% of CPUs and 80% CPU usage, just to be safe.

    Now we're 224! I guess I played too much WoW over the weekend and so the system didn't get to crank away as much.

    IMO this SETI program is useless -- stars are so powerful radio pollution generators that no civilization is able to expose its signature... Unless they are capable to create supernovas. And if they do, much better they never know about us.

    Anybody else having an issue with uploading results / downloading new workunits from the S@H servers?
    My Android has refused to do such since mid-yesterday; unsure if it's an issue with the Android/software on my end or the servers on their end.

    I don't have the Android software so I wish I could answer that for you. On the PC everything everything seems good but I haven't really looked too closely.

    There is a known issue with the latest version of S@H on the Android so I've been running an earlier version for a few months now.
    However, this earlier version doesn't seem to work for me anymore so it looks like I'll have to wait for an update.
    Which is a bummer because it is my main 'workhorse', running ~1000 credits/day - a whopping ~2% of the total team output, lol.

    Most likely the server maintenance which occurs every Tuesday. Sometime it's up by the afternoon but sometimes not.

    which has some SETI going on.
    It's pretty good!
