Default Has anyone got any News on SETI@Home.

As of the last 22 hours approx the servers and project has been completely down. I've had no access what so ever. I've got a load of WU's or Tasks to return and their is absolute nothing I can find apart from this:

Setiathome.berkeley.edu - Is SETI@home Down Right Now?


Anyone heard any news on this this or why its down.

Most likely down for maintenance.

I thought Seti was shut down a long time ago though.

Original Seti was, in favour of boinc.

But they reused the moniker since they're still searching.

SETI is yeah but a lot of people on the Boards are running GPUs now and running the likes of AP (Astro Pulse) on them. Your RAC is based on how much work you can get done in such a sort amount of time as possible. Then thus the credit. For Hardcore SETI this isn't even mostly a topic of interest but gauges how well your System preforms.

VLARS are CPU Dominant and most people who join have low end too mid range Systems. Running Titan X, I wouldn't mind seeing the the RAC would be on those tbh. If you look on the main page, their are lists available of top model CPU s and GPUs available for whats being used along with the overall System.

Mind you PP be aware the DC SETI can be very problematic and is down once every week for maintenance. They are on a shoe string budget and when their is any problems it can be very problematic for days on end. Very stress full for someone who isn't knowledgeable about it. The servers went down with regards to this thread because their was a fire in the DATA Center. A message was posted to every one after a 22 hour outage and a lot of the time their isn't a great deal of work available when the servers are running in to problems.

Yea I'm using work machines so it's not that big of a deal to me. I've done seti before, just was under the impression they were shut down some time ago.
