    Maybe we should get Julio's okay before we "dub" it official, eh? He might get a tad annoyed with us. :giddy: :knock:

    Yeah, that might be a good idea...

    Anyways, I don't think we'll need to come up with a name right now anyways...
    AFAIK SETI hasn't found much yet...

    But one could allways be surprised... :)

    Yeh it takes 19-20 hours on that machine to do a unit.

    Nice to know my memory isn't as bad as I thought...
    (And it's bloody hard to find a place which sells quality upgrades too...!)

    You'll also have a nice average time for each workunit then... But at least you'll rack up cpu time donated :)

    Guys, is there a thread in here that explains the whole SETI@HOME/distributed computing thing? I understand the basics of how it works, but I've been giving it some consideration and I'd like to know what all it involves. Thanks in advance.

    I don't think we've got such a thread on this forum...

    It goes a bit above what we concentrate on imo, but it's an interesting topic...

    I suggest you that you google around a bit, and check out this site...
    It's what got me started on DC in the first place...

    The team page is updated a few times a day, sometimes under heavy traffic only once a day. Your personal statistics are updated a little more often & can been seen at -> http://setiathome2.ssl.berkeley.edu/fcgi-bin/fcgi?email=youremail%40provider&cmd=user_stats_new

    Change youremail%40provider with your Email ( do not replace %40 with @, it will not work ) & you'll see your own results. :)

    PS. Or simply go there & enter your Email at the bottom -> http://setiathome2.ssl.berkeley.edu/account_area.html

    I could've sworn I greated you into the team. I think those aliens deleted my post so that there's some discord in the team lowering the chances to find them.:suspiciou

    Or maybe it just slipped my mind.;)

    Anyways Welcome to the Team Novicegamer.:D

    Two is better than one

    I just got 2nd CPU for my 2nd computer, now I have dual-P3 and dual-Celeron crunching Seti. I'll pass MrG and one year of CPU time shortly :approve:

    Well Huzzah to that Mic. :)

    ( run MrG, RUN !!! ;) )

    We've also passed 11K results ( keep 'em coming ) & 9 years of computing time.

    Congrats to all.

    Re: Two is better than one

    And to think that I'm only crunching on an AthlonXP 2500+ Barton with you not able to keep up so far... :)

    If you can't overtake me now when using 4 cpu's and I only use 1 cpu....

    Too bad I'm too broke to build another system atm... :(

    Hey guys. My email address has changed, and I no longer have the one I signed up with. I've also lost the password. Would it be possible for somebody to kick me out of the account so I can re-join?
  18. Didou

    Didou Bowtie extraordinair! Posts: 5,899

    We can kick you out of the team but your account is still lost. You will have to create a new account & start at 0. Is that what you want ?
  19. Spike

    Spike Newcomer, in training Posts: 2,371

    lol. yip. That is exactly what I want. Thankyou. I hadn't done much before I lost my password and email anyway. An unexpected reinstall lost me the text file it was in.

    I'm a bit wiser these days. data stays on a seperate partition :)

    Thanks

    I'll remove you from the team later but you can allready join again with your new account, no problems there.:)
  21. Didou

    Didou Bowtie extraordinair! Posts: 5,899

    BTW are you sure you want me to remove you ? That means taking out 11 WU from the team total.;)
  22. Spike

    Spike Newcomer, in training Posts: 2,371

    well, I would appreciate it. I would like to add myself in as spike again. Two spikes would make a febnce, and we wouldn't want that! lol

    I'll set the computer working with my broadband connection overnight. I'll bring back those 11 units in no time!
  23. Didou

    Didou Bowtie extraordinair! Posts: 5,899

    Done.

    Oh & BTW...

    12K UNITS !!! :D
  24. Spike

    Spike Newcomer, in training Posts: 2,371

    OK, that's INSANE!!! I've just created a new account. I've been credited with 1 WU's! I guess I used my most current details at the time (always a good idea!) I was sure I used a different email. ah well. sorry for any inconvenience. I'll rejoin now. (BTW, the password sending form told me no such user when I asked for this address earlier!lol)

    OK, 12K, WELL DONE GUYS!

    EDIT: Hold on... maybe I was right. the join link tells me it doesn't have my details.

    EDIT 2: OK, got it now! lol
