    Just a reminder that each user participating has to sign up individually for this event. This isn't just a team competition. It is also individual as well as unique teams based on your astrology sign.

    With 2 more days to the start of the Wow event. You can still register using the link from the first post or here https://www.seti-germany.de/Wow/register/en.

    Currently only 7 of us are registered.

    Team standing (currently under testing) is here. Click the team name for individual stat.

    Best configuration to run Seti is with Nvidia cards under linux with optimized apps which can be found here: http://www.arkayn.us/lunatics/BOINC.7z. I personally just extract the files under the /projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/* folder and put the files under my ubuntu 18.04 boinc folder here: /var/lib/boinc/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/*

    For further details see latest seti forum: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=84526&postid=2006903#2006903 which was just started a few days ago.

    Some perspective.

    Last year, the team finished at no. 8 with total credits of 10,724,795. This year, I should be able to do more than my last year performance of 3,585 pts. Good luck to everyone participating in the Wow! event.

    Should be good. I am also going to destroy my last years total.

    We are still holding 4th spot after almost 4 days of the race.

    Sometime by today, we will pass our 2018 WoW credits of 10.7M. We are now at 10M. Good job for the 8 crunchers currently participating in the race.

    We need more people. You can still sign-up here.

    Just a reminder, tomorrow (Tues), the server will be down for maintenance. Typically can last up to 24hrs or longer. Please make sure that you have enough tasks to last during that period.,

    Signed up. Currently running on Windows with whatever setup I used for the last FB marathon last year. I only wish my 1080TI was under Linux. Won't have time to switch.

    Edit: All my stuff is in storage, and I only grabbed the smallest amount of stuff out of it before coming to my current location. 2 hour drive back to get my Linux hard drive.

    Thanks. Yes, I had a good time. Tough hiking, bunch of sightseeing. Only back for 2 weeks, then back out for 1.5 months. Hopefully I'll be back with a job and new living place by December.

    Since the start of this month, we have moved up 15 places in the SETI team world ranking from 143 to 128th position according to boincstats.

    In the FB marathon, we overtook DPC to 18th spot.

    Well done [H]ordes!

    Just passed the halfway mark in the Wow! race and we just doubled our output compare to last year. I'm closing in on the 2M mark. :D
