    Hi,I'm just a newbie at this, but it took my first unit 39 hrs to finish. Does this eventually go down--I'm on a PII 400 w/ 128 meg of RAM (running as screensaver).

    After completing my first unit, I'm ahead of 32% of the users. (who have 0 units completed???)

    Anyway, cool program; I just wish it had smaller units to process.

    Plain graphite.

    With 128mb RAM, you should run it in the background, with the window minimized.

    I'm running a pII @ 366 MHz with 192mb RAM.

    I've got a lot of 'heavy interference' data units recently (bringing my per-unit total to 7.8 hours, which is REALLY off -- it takes me 20+ in reality).

    In reply to the "what are you running" query, I'm now on a PII 400 that's on 24/7, another PII 400 that's on 10 hours a day (both on Win98), and a K6 450 that's only in Linux mode 3-4 hours a day.

    This program is really pretty spiffy when it clicks along with those graphics...

    I was thinkin' that we need an animated gif button featuring a Visor & S@H in some way that links to this discussion. Everyone could stick it on their website.

    Say a Visor in its cradle, the cable leading off to a parabolic dish?

    Anyone graphically inclined?

    As soon as Seti@Home sends me my pass, when I join I will bring 53 completed units with me.

    I have a p200 with 64 meg and a p180 with 48 meg(linux) processing 24/7 on my lan connected to the net via cable.

    I also have my k6-2 400 running it about 16 hours a day.

    Lets get crunching!

    If nobody else jumps on creating that graphic, then I can. Don't know if it will be animated or not, I usually do still pictures. Let's post them here and people can use the one they like the best.

    Here is a graphic for us. Let me know if you like it or if you would like it changed in some way. I'm posting three sizes of it.

    Purple 460 x 190:

    Blue 241 x 100:

    Blue 181 x 75 (maybe too small):
    http://members.home.net/lennonhead31...logo181x75.jpg

    Anyone is free to use these on their websites.

    EDIT: Figured I'd cut down on the load times of this thread.

    Can't read the text in the small one. Needs to be brighter color. I like it.

    ... our team stats page.

    Hey lennonhead: if you change the large graphic, keep the same name and URL. It's now visible for all to admire.

    Maybe the letters could be the same shade of lavender as the SETI@Home lettering? Or maybe silver like the Visor and antenna?

    I changed the colors a bit. Let me know which one you want to keep on the team page (blue, purple or silver).

    Silver 460 x 190:
    http://members.home.net/lennonhead31...go460x190s.jpg

    I also made the smallest one brighter, here are two new version of it.




    I have the middle size pictures of the new colors too as:
    purple- http://members.home.net/lennonhead31...go241x100p.jpg
    silver- http://members.home.net/lennonhead31...go241x100s.jpg
    and the original large size blue picture:
    http://members.home.net/lennonhead31...go460x190b.jpg

    Let me know which ones you plan on using, so I can delete the other ones.

    I like the purple one.

    On the other hand, the silver one looks distinctive.

    (Give me a day. If it changes back to purple ...)

    For all those interested, Version 3.0 is available for download. They will require this update as is explained by the help file, the portion below states the reason.

    Q: Why are we requiring you to upgrade to SETI@home 3.0?
    A: Before answering this question, we want to say thank you to our users (over a million of you!). You have made history with this, the largest distributed computing project ever, with more processing power than any supercomputer ever built.

    Because the response to this project has been so much greater than we had anticipated, we have decided to put this extra computing power to better use and perform more extensive analysis on the radio telescope data. We have now added pulse and triplet detection to the analysis in our earlier versions. Because we have been able to implement faster methods, the new clients will do far more scientific analysis with only a modest increase in time per work unit.

    We understand that during the transition, there will be a heavy load on our servers for downloading the new software. Please be patient and keep trying; the quality of the science will greatly benefit from the upgrade.

    Ah, thats why downloading the next cube took so long... It was also downloading the new client....

    Been part of S@H since a day after they published version 1.0 of the Windows client. I've updated every time there was a new one, and I got 3.0 before there was any announcement.

    Read through http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/learnmore.html every other week and you'll actually start to understand the science.

    BTW: Do you (or someone you know) want to relocate to Berkeley --> http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/newjobs.html ???

    I made a small change...

    Clicking the red house icon will take you to my evolving website, someContent.

    Clicking my handle on the HVCS page, Don 366Mhz, will, as before, bring one to this discussion.

    I have been running SETI@home for some time now, however, I dont always leave my "supercomputer" on all the time and I don't have a DSL connection, and for the majority of the time I was running a very slow 233 MHz Pentium II computer that crached > 3-4 times a day. However, with the new computer that I have (with a 700 MHz Pentium III processor and 128 MB RAM) and the new SETI@home 3.0 client software, I was able to get times per unit down to about 6hrs! Needless to say, I was surprised that when I woke up I found the computer done with a unit that it started when I went to sleep.

    You just flew past me by almost 50 units over the last few days!!! You're going to have more than Don before long.

    Remember that I have been running this on my computer for about 2 years now and just recently joined the group.
