Team Anandtech is pulling away from us! We must kick it into overdrive team!

Guess the time has come to increase the FSB some more... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

I've increased my daily output by about 10 units for the past week or so using the firedaemon utility that jms mentioned. Anyone else having NT machines on their network that can spare some seti time, check it out.

BTW jms, thanks!

Keep in mind though that we're still not getting credit for all the WUs we're doing.

Take today's stats for example.

The All Teams page says we've done 564 WUs between May 22 (04:16:15 UTC) and May 23 (04:37:37 UTC).

However, if I sum our individual stats (for the top-300 members of seti@murc) in approximately the same timeframe, I say we've done closer to 1000 WUs.

Of course, Anandtech will probably suffer from the same deficiency, but we won't know for sure until seti catches up. The problem is listed on their news-page, but they don't know when they'll fix it.

What's the benefit using a service using firedaemon

I don't know of any advantages that firedaemon has over other methods of running the seti cmdline client as a service, I just meant that running seti as a service you can process WU's when no one is logged in to the computer.

I'm pedaling as fast as I can! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

PS I think playing quake online while i'm crunching WUs is taking down my average!

I take my laptop (Fujitsu PII-233/96MB RAM/Win2K pro) on a little roadtrip over the weekend and all of the sudden everybody is going crazy because it didn't crunch any work units. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif In fact, I did have it running SETI some of time while in the car (while going from Seattle to Salt Lake City and back again).

Anybody have any ideas on how to tweak this guy to go faster (maybe bump the FSB???). It's got a BX chipset in it, but obviously(?) I can't just open up the case and change the jumpers...

The stats server problem is really clouding things http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif


If you're right(I'm sure you are http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif) then we could still be much closer than it appears!

I guess I won't recruit for my team here :) TA

We've done 118000 WUs now at an average of 860 WUs/day over the last 3 1/2 days
