    I'm currently running SETI@Home from a RamDrive, but I don't know if it has a big impact on times.

    If you wish to try it out, download the free RamDrive utility from Microsoft ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q257405&SD=MSKB& ).

    Install it following the ReadMe, instructions & enable it by changing the registry key :

    "HKey Local Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Fastfat\Start"

    from 4 to 1.

    PS. You are limited to 32mb with this utility, or you can download another one here ( Link provided by http://www.jurixt.com/xp/xp_18.htm ).

    *Update*

    I'd like to welcome Spike, Dantrag & AcidOsmosis to the team. We need all the crunching power we can get.;)

    We're closing in on the 10K Mark.:grinthumb

    I thought you did, how do you explain all of those extra results that show up on your machine? :D

    I'm still busy with UD cancer research. I sense a more realistic payoff than crunching space static.

    -=( Update )=-

    Well we've passed the 8 years of computing time barrier ( Papeh provided 4 years by himself :eek: ).

    We also have some new members crunching -> Sngx & Acid ( Smoking !!! ).

    Mic is also back after a small hiatus.:grinthumb

    Next Milestone -> 10K results so keep those CPUs busy !!!

    Cool!

    And nice to see that more are joining us!
    (Yeah, I know I haven't been reading this thread for a while...)

    But it's pretty sad that the "owner" of the team isn't crunching anymore... Didou, can't you whoop him over the head with a keyboard until he starts crunching again?;)

    DA hasn't really been crunching anything anymore. He's also the "owner" of the UD team.;)

    Oh, well... As long as he inactive in both... ;) :D

    Welcome aboard!

    The more the merrier, and maybe we'll be the lucky group to find us some ET's... :)

    If we do, what should we call them? "TechSpotians" could be one solution, though not sure how glad Julio'd be about that if they turned out to be hostile..... ;):D

    I don't want to find ET. I like the ones in Mars Attacks.:D

    "Can't we all just ... get along ?";)

    I'm thinking "Juliotians" will be the next big catch-phrase. :haha:

    You guys know the winning result is going to be turned in by my parents P2 300 right? :p

    LoL...

    I seem to recall from when I was running SETI at such a box that it took closer to 20 hours to complete one block.... Or am I way off base?


    Juliotians... Well, it has a certain ring to it... And it excludes us from bad press if they turn out ot be hostile... Doesn't sound bad to me... ;) :D
