    SETI farms should be illegal

    Only because I'm so jealous of guys like TC, Rogerdugans and Godfodda who are crunching anywhere from 5 to 10 times more WUs *per day* than I can with my two machines! When I, eventually, get bumped out of the top 50, I think I'll take my WUs and go home (just kidding). Keep crunching and I'll keep (reluctantly) eating your dust.

    I shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as those other guys or any of the other big dogs. It's disrespectful to them.

    I'm getting used to eating dust and I'm beggining to like it. I have now a spoon right behind me so that when noones is passing me by I just grab a spoonfull of dirt a shove it down my throat......

    The people that have the resources/time/energy to have a farm should have one, as the more WU we all produce, the sooner we'll be in the top 25 teams of the world.
    Have you checked the Forum policies?!!!!! Do it now!!!!!
    Currently the 11th team in the world in SETI@Home II (aka S@H BOINC)
    Currently the 54th team in the world in Einstein@Home
    Join the ONLY team to crunch for!!!!!
    Now backed up by the Danish Jedi Alliance
    "We are a team. We are a community. We are a fellowship made strong by mutual respect and shared dedication to the task of enriching all who come here. We are respectable, for we share our bounty. We will endure, for we continue to grow. We will continue to grow as long as those who come to us find what they need for their own betterment, and the betterment of those who follow after them."

    Celeron 500@600
    Athlon 1000@1000 (at work)

    Personally, I think blow dryers should be illegal- I have one that keeps shutting down my "cellar-net"!

    Guess I need to grab a new breaker and run some wire.....

    (I think there should be at least two blank lines between TC and me- he is right out of my league!)
    Still overclocked and running linux on watercooled computers after all these years.

    Don't let my wife hear you all talking like this...she may get the crazy idea that I don't "need" 10 machines around the house! At least my work machines would still be OK.

    That's gotta be one helluva 486 I did some rough numbers in my head and concluded my 6x86 @ 133mhz would take that long, or longer.
    Thank you Baby. I love you.

    P166MMX runs about 40-48 hrs depending on mobo chipset... I have benchmarked many of these with 64 & 32 Mb of RAM...

    I dunno about that 486, but it sounds like something may be awry...

    Deez...

    I got it... the 486 probably used SETI client v1.0 or v2.0... they were MUCH faster... and my benchies were last spring using v3.03...

    I would belive 2.5 days on the earlier client... my P3-650 chewed up WUs@about 5.5-6.5 hours on V2.1...

    I assume the new(ish) client is slower because it's more effective instead of just being slower, yes/no??

    In a nutshell yes - it adds a few more tests I believe.
