    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.

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

    WU = Work Unit

    Question

    Is Ant a closet Macaholic?

    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

    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.

    Check out these two sites for WU times for a K6-3.Looks like it ranges from 9-11 hrs on average.
