The wat the race works is this:

The team are formed with the participation of all the community.

At the start of the race, each participant is identified and his current total is noted.

You keep uloading WU into your account as always.

Each day (or hour) your current total is checked and a difference is made from the amount you had at the start. This amount is added for all the members of each team.

When the difference reaches a certain amount (in this case 15,000 WU) a winner is declared.

I hope this clarifies the mechanics of the race :D

BTW, who are the members that are currently missing from the SETITeam rooster?

Yes, just upload them normally. They'll get counted for our team. ;)

GO TEAM HALLEN! ;)



edit: By the way, how often will we be seeing updates? And will they continue to be in this thread?

Thanks for the hard work you guys are putting into this! ;)

LOL

Well, as for getting permission from my IT, that's easy, it me :D

I don't know how many I'll enlist, tried this before but no one could keep their hands off and always messed things up

Too bad I can't hide the icon and let it run in the background where no one would notice.

Oh well, my main rig is now crunching, hopefully I'll have 2 more starting tomorrow.

But you can. Are you running an NT based OS on your computers?

If they are either NT, 2000 and XP, you can set up seti as a service. It will run even when now one is logged in.
As it will be a service, regular user won't be able to mes with it,

I beleive it would be trivial form a sysadmin to schedule the service from 8PM to 8AM, if needed.

Nope, all the computers are running 98, some of the really old ones are 95, but not worth setting up to crunch.

We are really behind technology wise, but it works

Piece of cake run the seti clc with a program called setihide and rename the sedihide to what ever you wish as well as the clc. Place both files in a folder and double click the setihide file or what ever you named it and it will automatically install as a service, no matter what the windows OS and it will be hidden. Once installed the settings screen will open and allow you to configure it can be a pain to get the cache full to your desired cache level. To work around it I download one WU then set the number in the cache, open the first wu folder and copy the user_info file to the other wu folders it just speeds things up. Enjoy and let me know if you need help.

Once you install and get up and running both files are totally hidden in 98se, in 2000, nt, and xp it still shows up as a service.
A little heads up read all you can about this before installing theres lots of little tricks to make it better and easier. For instance to get the setihide program visible again find the "files" folder were you put the original to files and delete the file "seti_is_hidden" and it will be visible again untill minimized.

Hmm, I would investigate public domain win98 scheduler (cron, at ...) to start-stop Seti as win98 machine.

Where's The Two Norsemen? I thought Greg said he was going to race.

LET"S GO TEAM MORPHEUS!


Argh...Nevermind, I just went back to read the thread where Greg said he won't join the race.

Sorry Katelin! Just too much work and 'life' getting in the way right now.

Good luck to everyone!:burn:
