hehehe...

Once I get broadband in my apartment I'll have to get the Seti thing. That should give the MURC team a little more power.

Hey Ant:

In your experience how many WU's could I contribute with about 18hrs per day of crunching on my old K6III 400? The thing just Idles most of the time.

Tim: I think it'll do 1 to 2 WU's a day (in that 18 hours). As I've looked around most K6-3's do a WU inbetween 7 and 10 hours. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Jammrock: What has broadband got to do with it? (Thinking of a modem here, I might be mistaken http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif) My P3-450 non OC takes inbetween 5 and 6 hours to crunch a WU http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

WU = Work Unit

Try it now Jammrock, the WU (Manchu)'s are no bigger than 348k, sometimes even smaller.

Erm Jorden,
How come some of my units are 351k then?
Is a k 1024 or 1000!

Okay... errrr (how do I figure this one?)

It counts to 351k (visible), but when you look in the Seti@home directory, with details on, it shows 348k ...

Haven't got a clue where the extra 3k went http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

Currently I have one phone line and a crappy connect. It would probably take an hour just to download a single WU for Seti. Once I have broadband I can leave my computer on and connected to crunch WU's to its hearts content.

The extra 3k is the seed of an alien virus planted in our computers to take over our minds and make us pod people!! Oh NO!!
