;D I'm number 8 in average credits at 173.18.  Apparently the mac is burning through WUs about 4 times faster than the HP is.  Both cores of the Intel are twice as fast as the single AMD!  In the time I've been running SETI, the mac has done 38 WU's and the HP has done 6!!!  And the HP is no slouch either, so that Mac is *fast*!!!
I was never here, you were never here, this conversation never took place, and you most certainly did not see me.

It all comes down to proccessor efficience and execution more than clockspeed.  (Performing more work in one clock cycle)

Core2Duo, and Core Duo do VERY well at the type of math Seti does.  AMD processors not so well.  Even standard Pentium 4's (and Pentium D's) get blown away by even low end Core Duo/Core2Duo machines.

There's a couple threads at the Seti boards that can explain this better than I can.

Some how the AMD is getting progressively slower at crunching WUs too...  The rest of the machine isn't suffering though.  It's weird.

Great news! Sun Microsystems is coming to the rescue and will be replacing our inoperative science data base server. They are preparing the machine now and will be rushing it to us on Monday. Once we have the machine up and the database recovered, we can start sending work out again. Details on the server crash and our recovery from it can be found in Technical News.

Happy May Day. Unfortunately for us it's been "Mayday! Mayday!" At 4:43 (PDT) this morning, our science database machine, thumper, became hasenfeffer. It currently refuses to acknowledge that it has any disk drives. Since the controllers are attached to the motherboard, major repairs will probably be required. No work can be created until this machine gets fixed. We are on the phone with Sun now in hopes of securing repair or a replacement. More info in Technical News.

My oldest machine finally bit the dust (Duron 800) - leaky capacitors.

So i'll be down about 70max production for a couple months untill I can replace the PC entirely.

Yeah, but he has not been in the habit of using Chicken Little.
Also, IF I can get my act together, I may try to give all of you a run for your money. It will all depend if I can get the "D" running with Chicken Little.

A bunch of Dual proc P4 3.6s might not even need Chicken Soup to outproduce.

Hoping to get well past 2.5 million before I have to scale back again.

Due to a corporate take over last Christmas it is currently looking very bad for the continuation of my job for more than a few more months.  So I'm working out my cached WUs and leaving SETI to reduce my expenses at least until I either know my job is continuing (which looks unlikely) or I have a new job.  I do intend to produce again at some point when things have stabilized again.

I am very sorry to hear that Nem... maybe you can get a job in the states where the dollar is actually worth real money!  Let me know if you want me to do some looking.

You really must stop listening to Punishers propaganda.  The Canadian dollar has risen to ~95% of the U.S. dollar, which makes it "real money".  I fully expect it to pass the U.S. dollar if the government keeps paying down the debt as they have. 

Let me know if you want me to do some looking.

I appreciate the offer but given my parents ill health and that no one else in the family is able to check up on them very often I need to stay in this area.

In any case it is still possible that they will find a buyer and leave us operating.  I personally don't think they can in the time available but I could easily be wrong if they have already been looking or if the prior owners had offers.
