    Not really......when you look at some other RAC's....besides thats all i have that cpu do.....it dosent do anything but SETI 24/7. Plus two gigs of ram..................but i dont think the Boinc program uses anything over the one gig mark. Come to think of it nothing else much would either......except maybe some memory intense game apps.

    National Geographic was just on cable TV here with a new sixty-minute special on extraterrestrial life.

    It sounds like the "odds" of ET have gone up, in the sense that scientists are now looking at planets circling the very numerous "red dwarf" kind of stars as ET candidates, as well as the moons of planets that orbit around the very common binary stars, where two closeby stars are orbiting each other.

    Previously, these kinds of solar systems were not considered to be likely candidates for life-supporting planets or moons.

    You can read more about this TV segment here:

    See why computing with those tedious, old-fashioned bits (binary digits) is becoming so 20th century ...

    Has SETI (the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) finally detected the long sought-after radio signal from ET?

    Not exactly.

    The graphic (courtesy of Berkeley National Laboratory) accompanies a new article about pulsars - and the speculation, well-founded or not, that the characteristic radio signals emitted by pulsars may signify the work of an extraterrestrial intelligence.

    SETI@home/AstroPulse Beta

    I just started running the beta test version that is delineated on the webpage (above) as setiathome_enhanced 5.17 ... it's only crunched through a single work unit, but so far - no problems with it on my end. I've been discovering that there is more to SETI@home than just a search for recognizably intelligent radio signals. If you are running SETI@home, you may be interested in this new post on the science of SETI@home:

    Put this in your pipe and smoke it ...



    More than just a search for little green men

    Boy, I just checked on the team and it seems no one is running SETI anymore. I was going to join since my old team is pretty inactive also. I have over 500,000 credit and now I'm only running one computer out of about 8 available.
    I'll join up if we can get a few more participants going.

    When King (QDO1) set up the Opticians Worldwide team, he set it up for people who want to run SETI@home exclusively. In addition to SETI@home, I've also been running SETI/Astropulse Beta Test, Rosetta, Rosetta Alpha Test, Einstein and Hydrogen@home. I have a Mac with the Intel architecture. If you're running on a Windows, Linux or Unix rig, you have access to a different and larger set of @home programs, vs. Mac. It doesn't matter what team anyone joins or whether they join any of the teams. You can run any of the @home programs that are supported on your rig without joining any of the teams.

    For the record, I joined the BOINC Synergy team.

    Oh, so that's a group that pools all their BOINC projects together. That is one massive group!:D:D

    thanks rinselberg , I'm an science fiction fan so I'm interested about this. Can someone tell me , how many resources(CPU,RAM) the program from SETI, wich analyzes radio telescope data, uses ?

    You can set it to constantly run in the background if you have a beefy setup, or it can just run as a screensaver. Either way, it's not an intensive program, it just uses unused CPU cycles. And if you have a super video card, it can also use your GPU to process.

    Part of being human is the inability to think in infinite terms, i.e. We've already been conquered and successfully resisted infinite times, we've been found infinite times, etc. It's likely there are infinite co-existing universes, given the small space limitations.
    :cheers: Stop the merry go round, I'm ready to get off so someone else can have all the fun.
