View Full Version : SETI@HOME - Distributed Computing
15-09-2003, 11:02 PM
Interested in distributed computing - join the cause and help find some intelligent life out there - how about this for a brainstorm - lets make more of an impact and create a group for MyADSL.
Come on guys, lets use those idle processes out there - goto http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu if ur interested. And as far as this group goes, if we get some decent response, we'll call it MyADSL Forum in honour of rpm :)
For an even better cause, goto www.google.com and check out the distributed computing section on DNA analysis

I think we have established that there is very little intelligent life on our own planet. We should rather focus our search for intelligent life on this planet (starting with a new minister of communication). [:D]
LoL - martin - good one dude! [:D]

Was the Seti group created?
I searched for "myadsl" and only got "No results found."

I thought we'd get some interested people to talk here and then take steps. So far I've had only these responses, and 1 disappeared. I'll be monitoring though and when we've got a decent amount of guys interested, I'll do the dirty deed....... by the by, I'm sitting on 31 Data units so far, how u guys doing?
Idle CPU time, I'd offer all I have. But sorry, I have to be REALLY stingy with my network traffic. I have to pace myself as it is, unfortunately, if I want to make it through the month.
paf - I was involved with this a few years back and the lekka thing was that you download a datapack - process it and only upload the results. Unless they have changed the way they do things the traffic is minimal if I remember corectly....

traffic is tiny something like 300kb every day or so

Heya guys, I'm sitting on 60 Units processed so far, how are u faring in our quest for intelligent life (still haven't found any besides the members of this forum [;)])

Good going, 75 myself - I've tried to create the MyADSL group with no luck - keeps asking me for username and password which wasn't given to me - wth??? I've sent an e-mail requesting that a group be created for us and I'll let you know of the reply - Oh well, lets keep our logs here in the mean time.

Yo guys is there any fresh news on this? I'm currently in broadband uk's group. But if this place is willing and we can get the group set up, it would be nice...

I joined Seti@home about a week ago, will pitch in. (I had nearly 5000 units on the old pre-BOINC system :/ ... but starting from scratch now.)
Some other interesting distributed computing projects:
(If it's BOINC-based you can join more than one, and split your CPU time between multiple projects.)

Yes I know that this is an old thread, but how many forum members know about the My ADSL Forum Team?
Perhaps it is time to update the name, and recruit a few more members?

Haven't heard about Seti@home for a while. A utility SETI Spy was written by Roelof, a school & varsity friend of mine. He unfortunately passed away a couple of years ago from liver cancer.
I see SETI@home now has a BOINC plugin/addon.

I joined the...urg...whats it called now...here we go...http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ via boinc...but I really dont like how it would make my laptops fan go wwwwwooooooo and then it goes quiet and then after 1 minute it goes again. Scared it causes damage.
I hope you realize that your PC is going to be using far more electricity, running flat out instead of idling/sleeping.
