What the heck? I can't log where it is on my star map because it's wrong. I emailed seti@home, but never got a response and every single workload
I've gotten in the past 2 months or so has nonexistent coordinates. Is anybody else having this problem?
I've never noticed this before, I must admit... Whenever I've looked (which I don't always do, especially for WU's completed during the "night
time" when I'm sleeping!!) I've not noticed this non-existent RA/ Dec set of co-ordinates being present??
Where are you getting the data from - from SETI@home sys tray icon itself or from one of the add ons like SETI Spy (if you haven't installed this,
it's worth it, as you get a "sky map" facility as well).?
Sorry I can't help at all - I'll try to pay more attention in the future to *where* my WU's are supposed to be coming from!!
