I think this is why Seti Boinc is so damn slow to update anything.

2.7 million units done already.
for reference, the old seti only did 6 million units in it's entire lifespan they say.

"July 19, 2004
We have brought up an additional transitioner to try and cut through the backlog we have accrued. Since the beginning of the project we have already processed 2.7 million results. For comparison, the beta project had only processed 6 million through the whole life of that project to date. "

not bad, still kinda ****es me off to get 15-20 points a day from 6 ghz running everyday all day.
but I guess, once they get some things running smooth, it might look better.

I believe what they said is that the whole BETA trial for BOINC only did 6 million. The beta ran for longer than the public has in overall time to date. I'm not sure how long the beta ran but obviously people were just waiting for the public release to start BOINCing! :)

Agreed, Cy.

I also think that the 6 million is BOINC only.

One of the Planetary Society newletters--from just before the reobservations--which mentions SETI's analysis of "10,000 hours of data from the Arecibo radio observatory" and a result database yielding "several billion events."
