do you think that the work units we are allocated are random? Two of the last few units I have processed have only taken 6 and 3 minutes to finish and have had huge peaks in them. I am taking on avarage about 4 1/2 hours per unit and wondered if they would send units that need double checking etc to those that are doing them fairly quickly.

Hi pantha!!

I *believe* so ie that they are sent randomly. I read once - somewhere (I'm getting old, so the brain disfunctions sometimes!) - that *we* receive the *same* WU back to process about every 500 WU's, so as to "double-check" both our original computations (in case are equipment introcduced a "blip") and simply to re-examine that particular WU as well.

The interesting thing, I think, is to look at *when* the data being processed was collected (at Arecibo), revealed in the window in SETI: currently the two I'm crunching were collected on Sept 4th 14:28:50 2003 and Sept 4th 16:33:40 - different RA and Dec, of course, as the Earth "swept" a diferent part of the sky.

Well done on the 41/2 hours process time: here the 2.6Ghz manages about 4 hours per unit.

As for *some* WU's being returned after minutes: well, these are "bonuses": essentially, it usually means that the data was corrupted when collected (maybe by RFI or a satellite going through the same area, etc). The good news is that you are still creditted with the WU computation.

Keep uop the good work!!

My computer at home is working it's little processors off. Sadly, the company I work for frowns upon any distributed computing, so I can't participate at work, otherwise I'd hook up all my co-workers and really smoke some WU's. Now that we have shifted people's attention back to SETI@home, do you think we can double our target # by....let's say...April ? !
I think if we give people something to shoot for, it's possible to do it.

I just calculated the amount of WU's everyone on the current member list can process in a 24 hr period, and multiplied it by 160 days (thats June 1), it came to 50,100. We can do it. Let's push for this number !!

[color=990000]100,000+ SETI@Home Work Units by June 1, 2004

EDIT* had to adjust my math....I can't do math very well.

Hi Dark!!

Good point!! Well, we *might* be able to do this, just so long as SETI continues to be used. As you'll know, SETI plans to move over to BOINC, rather than use SETI client. BOINC will give users far more choice in *what* distributed network programs they wany to run eg climateprediction, as well as continuing to run SETI and "spin off's", like Astropulse, which will continue to use data from Arecibo but look for objects like "black holes".

Exciting times we live in - *if* we could get even more people "crunching", we could get to 100k WU's by Jan 1st!! Anybody up for it??

EEEK....Jan 1st!
It's a long shot, but we can try
I say 72,000 by Jan 1
Any other predictions?

Thanx to all existing - and new! - ATS members, we're now showing 51 999 WU's completed with 188 members, in 66.750 years at 13:32:03 GMT.


With a bit more promotion, *is* 60 000 achievable by Christmas??

Just a quick update team!!

Thanx to all recent ATS SETI@home team "recruits", we're now showing 58 222 WU's, 216 members (although some still not active
) in 73.611 years CPU time!!

60 KWU's approach - go ATS SETI@home team!!

I return 127 WU a day. currently at 16k but most of the single users you see over 100k are multiple users on one account.

Not to brag or anything but I broke the top 100 in the ATS Team with 35WU's since 12-31-03

currently 95th and closing in...

pantha...I think the client software will recognise a WU that does not give much info, or test proven to have too much interference from terrestrial sources.

It then just scans thru it, but does little processing.

A Dud.


As a note, I kinda wish people would quit joining the ATS team and transferring their WU to the ATS club.
I keep getting knocked down in individual rank in this group, when someone new transfers a pile of WU.
(just kidding)

Damn I need a new system....4 hrs in and only 26% complete

Thanks smirkley, I'm slowly begining to learn about what various things within each work unit mean with a lot of help from other ATS SETI members.

well done killerD . I started out in 99th place and am now up in 61st place.I'm averaging a time of 4 hours and 3 minutes per unit, but I don't always have my PC running. I'll be looking out for you as you move up the board.
I've noticed that banshee is racing up the board (she stands out with her purple name) she is hot on my heels and I don't think it will be long till she overtakes me.
Looking at some of the dates of members last units submitted I think that I can get quite a bit higher up eventually but it's going to be a hard slog.

WOWEE!!!!!


127WU's per *day*?? Now *that's what I call "cracking" plastic!!


Hmmm - want to join ATS SETI@home team, please Sir, and get us up there faster than the speed of light???

We're all impressed KD!!


What we *really* want to do, of course, is beat Bob88 at the top of the board - he's very sly, and keeps getting ahead!!


Keep cracking this WU's people!!

Yes, it's kind of upsetting - I worked *really* hard to get to "second" spot, then Sinchron arrived unannounced with 5000+ WU's and knocked me down!!
It's just *so* inconsiderate!!


Seriously, it's a "team" thing - the more, the merrier - go ATS SETI@home team!!

Reminds me UF: my *first* 135 WU's were produced on a P3 233Mhz machine with 128 Mb RAM: something like 35 hours to crack one WU!! Then, I also had DUN, so had to connect when I could ie lot's of down time (I hadn't cached any WU's). UF, treat yourself to a *new* machine - justify it on your taxes, my friend!! A P4 2.6 Mhz with 512 RAM takes about 4 hours per WU - go on, you *know* you're tempted!!

All agreed pantha!!

Yes, Banshee's "flying" for sure!!
And, you'll "creep up" the boards soon enough pantha - just don't switch your machine off!!
