    Unhappy Holiday from SETI :(

    Greetings all WU munchers. I will taking a 6 week holiday halfway throught next month (France, Ireland, England,Italy & Thailand. mmmmmmmm).

    I currently use SETIcache to queue 10 WU's at a time. I'm estimating that, in order to keep my PC's happily crunching away while i'm gone, i will need to queue 300 to 400 WU's!

    Can SETIcache be modified to cope with extra units, or is there some other way? Also, do WU's have a 'used by date'?

    Cheers,

    Giskard.

    Question

    From France to Ireland to the UK to Italy to Thailand?? I wonder what criss-cross travel-agency you used

    Do stop over in Oosterhout, The Netherlands and get a fresh beer

    Cool

    When you're flying from Australia, it kind of makes sense. It's a lumpy kind of loop... sort of. Oh, and it was the cheapest way of doing it

    If Seticache doesn't, than maybe SetiQ. Or set up some batches. It's only some Minutes of work.

    Do you have a URL for SetiQ?
    I did a search and got broken links or sites in espanol.

    Thanks,

    Giskard.

    Yes SETIQ can be made to store that many WU's ,though I would of thought you'd be lucky if your PC doesn't crash once in a 6 week period!.Still its worth it

    I believe SETI will re-issue a wu if you don't send its result back within a week, but you will get credit for completing it if you send it in at anytime.

    Giskard - Be careful in Thailand. You don't want to pick up any communicable disease there, if you know what I mean...

    I think i remeber over the new year period that some w/u were dumped by the seti prog as the units were too old.
    Anyone remember?

    Thanks for the link.

    I'm feeling quietly confident about the stability thing. Windows 98 was prone to crashing if i held my mouth the wrong way, but Win2k seems a lot better.

    I know it's not FreeBSD or anything (my internet gateway running BSD has managed to stay up for 347 days without a re-boot. not bad for a crappy old 486), but it seems a whole lot better than most of the micro$loth bugware.

    How about the 'used by' thing? Do WU's time out?

    Ciao,

    G.

    I hear the Thai prisons aren't up to standards either, so watch what you do there as well

    Cool

    Hey Assimilator1,

    Home base will be the town of Maidston(a friend has relatives there). We'll be spending a little time in London doing all the tourist stuff. Chester also looks good. We'll probably do a day or two there. We'll probably goto Oxford for a day trip, maybe another to Stonehenge. I might also check out Canvey Island because that is where my mother was born.

    Any suggestions? We're going to try to do the England part fairly cheaply, because your British pound totaly pummels the Aussie dollar

    Cheers,

    Giskard

    By the way, whats the weather like in September?
