View Full Version : seti@murc: want some more?

13th October 1999, 06:05
Hi all,

I joined MURC's seti-team a few days ago, using my linux-desktop machine (it's even got a G200, so that's appropriate enough...). It's crunching away quite nicely (a little over 7.5 hrs per WU, 24 hrs/day).

Fact is, I've got some more WU's. At my old job, three Sun Ultra5's are running seti, each churning out a WU approx every 10 hours. And they've been doing so for about three months. Now, I'm not quite sure when they're gonna throw off my seti-processes, but I would be more than happy to donate those WU's as well.

Problem is: that would mean that you'd all have to step down one spot, and I don't want to look like an arrogant git, bursting in through the front door, when no-one even invited me in...

So: should I throw in my 895 WU's, or should I give them to Slashdot? Comments?

I'll take a "demotion" for the cause. Hey as much as we're competetive against each other, it's still the MURC team effort. The more people, the more WU's. the better. Welcome! and Bring 'em on.
