Thanks from me also Scott, I would add the thought that Cosmology is important but your studies are far more important and would rather see your time devoted to graduating with better grades. Ben should see that your other class obligations are not impacted by his study.

I set my farm up on different projects so I don\'t run out of work on any machine, a simple solution,,,,,I really don\'t understand the whiners most of who are latecomers not being patient on a beta project.

I quit running Seti sept, 2007 again because of the server problems and downtime they were having. I had started with Seti beta in 1999 got tired of all the problems after a couple of years. As Brian says, David etc. need to fix Seti FIRST then worry about what other projects are doing. (with MUCH less trouble)

You shouldn\'t be receiving any PM solicitations to join a team. If you do, please send me or one of the mods a PM and we will talk with the sender.

Didn\'t help the last 2 I sent to you and the \"mods\" referred me to you,,,,,,,

I mentioned that already to the mods and Scott a couple of months ago and have gotten 2 Recruitment PM\'s since then. The one received today from the same team (SETI.USA) I sent to Scott last mo. which showed me that I would have to put the person on the \"blocked list\" to stop the spam.
7) Forums : General Topics : Why do you participate in Cosmology@Home? Who is the \"most surprising\" participant? (Message 4411)
Posted 7 Jan 2008 by Profile Beezlebub
Post:
I was in Chicago for the Winter Solstice festivals, and saw the article in the Tribune. (My wife said, \"Did you see the SETI thing in the paper?\")

When I got home, I fired up Safari, pointed it at the Cosmology@home site, registered, went back to my running BOINC and added the project, and waited. And waited. ...and waited.

I began to suspect that this was an Intel x86-only project, and my Mac is 8 years old, so I decided to check. Imagine my surprise, and disappointment, when I learned that it\'s not that I have the wrong Mac, it\'s that I have the wrong processor *and* the wrong operating system.

My mother put me onto astronomy with her college textbook 50 years ago; to the extent possible to the amateur who works in other fields, I have kept up with developments in cosmology for more than 40. (I knew what the main sequence of stellar evolution was when I was 14.) So I was really excited at the prospect of helping out in any way I could with this project.

And I\'m really disappointed that no one on the project has made it available to the tens of thousands of Mac users who have been working on, for example, SETI since before BOINC. (I mentioned that my Mac is 8 years old. The first application I put on the machine after taking delivery was SETI@home.)

So for now, I DON\'T participate--but not because I don\'t want to.

This attitude is SO wrong. You have basically a obsolete computer and OS yet you expect the team to write custom software for a computer that probably couldn\'t finish a WU in the time allotted with VERY few people with that old equipment. Personally, I would have been embarrassed to post what you did.
