Superlink@technion

is looking for a volunteer developer.

Friends,

This is a plea for help

We are totally out of manpower to keep the development. The system is now in production, but obviously is not bug free, and these bugs make YOU - our only source of the computing power - very unhappy, and rightly so.

If any of you would like to spend some of your time (for free money-wise, but sharing the system fame and exposing your name on various boards, etc.) to help polish and develop BOINC-related things, we'd be very happy to start the collaboration. Yet, to make things productive we'd appreciate if you send your CV to marksATcs.technion.ac.il.

I am not 100% sure, that, if we find an alien signal "and get in touch with them", that these aliens are much more intelligent then us. Maybe they can learn anything from us. Perhaps we can be used as a bad example.

Actually, it is hard to get new work. Until you havent received any new work units, crunch other projects.

And if there are, so what? It will have been the same 100 years ago and 100 years forward? The confirmation of anything in that sphere wouldn't help anything and is more likely to be a distraction from other more important things. Meanwhile, research in the various medical DC projects leads to discoveries that form a new understanding and can't be unlearned.



It is not a matter of "we will answer, or get in touch with the alien". It is a matter of "Yes, there is something or somewhat outside".

But, i think medical DC projects are worth to crunch as well. This is why i have accounts for Rosetta, Docking and Superlinkattechnion.

Really, I said I was sorry I asked.



It was not your fault and you can always ask.

Mikey, i dont know where you get that information, that we crunch Seti only for the shelf.

A few month ago, the admins put a new forum online. Near Time Persistency Checker Over there you can discuss hot candidate signals. And if you dont know, how it works, you can read the Near-Time Persistency Checker (NTPCkr) Frequently Asked Questions


I got this earlier this month "Mikey, did you get the seti@home newsletter ? I liek the part that says "one billion work units analyzed by seti@home volunteers". It did not say results, so if each was done twice or more, that's a lot of results. It also did not say that the results were anaylized by anyone. Then there is the future plan to add a web based system so volunteers can help view and analyze canidate signals."

It doesn't say anything about what you said, although I did not personally get the newsletter, so it could be in there, just that part wasn't sent to me. But the last sentence seems to indicate that Berkeley is no longer analyzing 'candidate signals' just storing them for future volunteers to look at. Maybe I am cynical, maybe I am reading it wrong, but it seems to me you don't need volunteers to analyze signals if you already are! But either way is okay with me, I am NOT going to go back to crunching for Seti, so for me it is a moot point.

When I was a Forum Admin at Seti we talked about the fact that Seti was re-issuing workunits just to keep the people happy and placated. They also talked about stopping that but never actually said they did. I crunched for Seti from the early days, before Boinc, and it turns out we too did ALOT of double and triple and even more levels of re-crunching the exact same unit over and over and over again! At some point that becomes stupid and a waste of my resources, and demeaning to me! I do not pay 500 bucks a month on electricity to re-crunch the same unit 50 times just so I can keep my pc's 'busy'!! I choose to crunch and that is why I also choose to pay the electric bill, but to think I want to do that re-crunching the same unit over and over and over again is just plain wrong!! I would stop crunching altogether if Seti ever became the only project left! Fortunately there is little to no chance of that with so many out there and more coming on-line all the time.



No offense here, but i have never seen the admin tag on your signature. You have been "only" a mod.

The bad old days, where we crunched workunits more then one times are over and things have been improved.


Sad that you have left Seti.

Thought the processor of a WII is to weak for crunching.

But as far as i have read, they are not using Boinc for WII crunching. :-)

I dont know, but my teamleader at Seti got it for nothing. He has installed a java chat on his web-side.

If you need informations, i can arrange a contact.
