View Full Version : “old-timers”



Guru
30th July 2000, 11:19
I’m sure there are a lot of team members who owns old computers (386, 486, Pentiums, AMD K5, K6 Cyrix) that they don’t use for SETI because they are to slow and it would ruin their average times. I have created a shared account called “old-timers” for all the old (worthless) computers that we own. So if you have let’s say an old 486 or Cyrix lying around why don’t you install SETI on it and start crunching away submitting your units to oldoldtimer@hotmail.com and help the MURC team in the SETI club rankings. If we all do that I am sure we could produce at least 50+ units/day (that is 1500 units/month) for the team. Also it would be nice to see a bunch of crapy computer rise in the MURC rankings! My old Compaq 100MHz is now happily crunching away units for the account and Sir Hitech already joined with a 90 and a 133MHz Pentium. Everyone is welcome to join and there is no need to worry about high average times. Remember the more computers we have crunching for the team the better! Any comments are welcome!

Thats right Mega!
Let's see already HedsSpaz joined (486 DX66, Pentium 120, and K6-2 350)as did Sir Hitech (Pentium 90, Pentium 133)and my Pentium 90@100 is happily crunching.
If anyone is thinking of joning the account feel free to e-mail me or post in this forum so that we know who is helping!

It does seem a bit extravagant doesn't it.
But seeing that I got into the race a bit late, the only competitive element for me is the average WU time.
Maybe if I get more computers under my command I'll start submitting in my own account.
At work I've got quite the opportunity to set up some workstations (and servers), but I cant't get around the moral obstacle of using the computers for this purpose.
Well, I don't really have moral qualms about it but I work for a tele communications firm, and it wouldn't be good business if you know what I mean (it's not a playground).
I would appreciate hearing about how others have tackled this situation though.

Btw, when I submit this I'm a MURCer http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Since you've got the permission of the owner to run seti@home at work, isn't it just to ask for permission to install it on more computers? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Sisyfos
9th August 2000, 16:01
hmmm...permission???
No seriously, I'm only running the CLI on 3 workstations, that I'm the sole user of so I'm not interfering with anyone.
If I want to spread it further on the other hand, I would have to ask permission, but I just can't put it right in my head.

Uhm boss, see there's them aliens ya know and I have this program that can look for them, but it won't hurt nobody and I would get lots of WUs and Matrox Users would be happy and..., and... errhm never mind.

"Hi Boss, how are we today? I was on the Internet at home last night when some guy, Paul his name was in fact, mentioned that continual heating and cooling of computer parts causes damage. So much so, in fact, that he has a program which starts up when the computer is cooling down and keeps the heat constantly high - preventing wear and tear immensely yet only consuming a few pence of electricity. If we could run this on our most expensive machines it could save a massive amount in maintenance costs, hence lowering the total cost of ownership..."

Alternatively:
I've got a gun. Let me do what I want. Understand? Excellent.

Though the 2nd could be problematic if he says no. Or if he has a gun. Yup, lots of problems in the alternative, I'll try think of a better one http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif!

It's hard to convince the guys above me that SETI is worth the little electricity that it needs. In fact it is forbidden to crunch in our firm. Not that we don't have the money or are not able to keep with the "traffic" SETI does(we are a ISP ourselfs [ISION Internet AG][anyone know how to post a sick smile?]). One marketing man, who has a good line to the CEO, thinks that SETI is evil. He says that SETI is a "security hole" because it opens some ports to the internet(which is of course totally nonsens, we only go through one proxy port(the famous 8080) to the internet. But, I'm not in the position to "Correct" him, I'm only an apprentice. So there are only to persons left (me and a loyal member) which crunch SETI.

Liquid Snake you can transfer units by disk! At least if you are using the client version. With old pentiums it takes about 48h to process one unit! If you put those computers crunching try changing the bus speed on that 75MHz comp from 50 to 66!

BTW, I would not try overclocking either of those machines, they don't have great airflow. Also, the boards only support 50, 60 and 66 bus speeds. Not sure about the multiplier.

I just don't have enough space to set them all up, plus I don't have enough parts to rebuild 2 of them. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif I might be able to get the 486 up though.

Dear SETI@home user:
>
>Thanks for your participation in SETI@home. I'm happy to say that
>the project is going extremely well, thanks to the continued support of
>our millions of users. This newsletter covers the following:
>
> - Project status
> - Release of version 3 software
> - New sponsorship from One Cosmos and The Planetary Society
> - New SETI@home gear is here
>
>Dr. David P. Anderson
>Project Director, SETI@home
>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu
>
>PS: to be removed from our mailing list, see the bottom of this message.
>--------------------------
>PROJECT STATUS
>
>Halfway through our second year of operation, SETI@home has processed
>over 7000 hours of digitally-recorded signals from the Arecibo radio
>telescope, using the power of millions of Internet-connected computers.
>As this processing continues, SETI@home's own computers are
>doing the next phase, in which we separate man-made radio signals from
>those originating outside our solar system. Our goal is to detect
>signals from other civilizations.
>
>By using the Internet to form the world's most powerful computer,
>SETI@home has inspired other scientific computing projects,
>and is often credited (along with Napster) with defining a
>new generation of computer system design, called "peer-to-peer".
>
>Because of the strong continued interest in SETI@home, the project will
>continue for at least a year beyond its original ending time. Plans are
>not finalized, but we hope to expand our search to the
>southern-hemisphere sky, and to search new frequency bands.
>
>We will also try to make SETI@home more fun and interesting by adding
>new content and features to our web site. Our small but hard-working
>staff (5 part-time members) has had little time to work on this area,
>but we're expanding our efforts.
>
>--------------------------
>RELEASE OF VERSION 3 SOFTWARE
>
>After almost a year of testing and debugging, we recently released a
>major new version of our screensaver program. The new version does
>much better signal analysis; it looks for two new types of signals
>(pulses and triplets) and it covers a wider range of drift rates.
>As a result, it takes more time to process each work unit.
>
>The old version of SETI@home should automatically notify you when
>it's time to upgrade to the new version. You can download and
>install it from our web site:
>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/download.html
>
>--------------------------
>NEW SPONSORSHIP FROM ONE COSMOS NETWORK AND THE PLANETARY SOCIETY
>
>We're proud to announce an alliance of SETI@home with One Cosmos Network
>and The Planetary Society. This alliance will give us the financial
>support necessary to continue and expand SETI@home, as well as
>enabling us to provide a richer Web experience.
>
>Founded by Internet executive Joe Firmage and Ann Druyan, Carl Sagan's
>wife and collaborator of 20 years, One Cosmos Network is dedicated to
>carrying on Sagan's effort to humanize science and bring it to people
>everywhere. Toward this end, One Cosmos is constructing an Internet
>portal, OneCosmos.net, and a production studio, Cosmos Studios, which
>will create compelling science-based entertainment for television and film.
>Their first release is an updated, digitally remastered Collector's Edition
>of the Emmy and Peabody Award winning 13-hour television series, "Cosmos."
>The series is currently available for purchase in DVD or VHS format,
>with "The Music of Cosmos" available separately in a double-CD format;
>find them at http://OneCosmos.net.
>
>The Planetary Society is the founding sponsor of SETI@home, and its
>membership is open to anyone who shares the goals of exploring our
>solar system and searching for extraterrestrial life. In fact, the
>Society supports six different SETI efforts, along with many other
>projects in space exploration. We encourage you to join
>The Planetary Society and help advance their many worthy programs at
>http://planetary.org/html/member/JoinUs.html
>
>We are also extremely grateful to our other sponsors, including
>the University of California Digital Media Innovation Program,
>Sun Microsystems, Fuji Film Computer Products, Quantum, and
>the SETI Institute.
>
>Thanks also to the hundreds of individuals who have made
>contributions to SETI@home. Their names are listed at
>http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/donorlist.html
>
>SETI@home is free for everyone, but if you can consider
>making a tax-deductible donation to SETI@home, please visit

>NEW SETI@HOME GEAR IS HERE
>
>While our goal is to detect life in outer space, we can't do that
>without the support of our fellow Earthlings. Last year, we introduced
>several SETI@home products in our online store. The response was so
>great that this year we've expanded the product line. There are great

>patches, and even a heat-sensitive mouse pad. Want more? How about
>your very own, very elegant, blown-glass globe? Or (our personal
>favorite) a stylus, red and black pens, and mechanical pencil packed

For those of you that do not use computers at work to run SETI@home and the only reason you do not use them is because you are not allowed or should not use the internet...

Cache the units but do not send them. When you have a bunch of WUs, put them on a zip disk, take them home and upload them.

Just a thought. May be some of you can do this.
