What's up

Post by Drogmar » Tue Jul 29, 2008 4:03 pm

Just saying hello. Been lurking around for a few days reading through the massive amount of conspiracy theories, funny stories and general good natured banter that goes on here and decided to join up.
seti@home seems to be having some problems at the moment so joining the actual Calm Chaos crunching team is a bit delayed, but it should get sorted out eventually.
Anyhow, :smt023

Welcome to the forum Drogmar, glad you like it and feel free to post anything of interest to you. You`ll be very welcome joining the team crunching any of the projects Calm Chaos is attached to which is probably all of them.
Welcome again and thanks for dropping by. :smt006

Is Seti the only project you run? We are set up on somewhere around 50 projects, so we are just about everywhere. :-)

If you only run Seti, well, we welcome you to the team there ( once they get the problem fixed...lol ).

Welcome to the forums. We're glad you chose to join us. :smt023

Welcome Drogmar. SETI is just down for the regular weekly time right now, but they did say it could be a little longer than normal this week.

Check back there in a few hours.

Never argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.

Yeah I only run seti currently. I ran CPDN for a while but those WU's take fooorever on my old Athlon 64 here. Whenever I manage to build a quad I'll run some other things.
I did notice some strife about seti not analyzing their work or some such, but for my limited resources (read : POS outdated computer)...I don't know, I feel that's where I need to be. If there were some distributed computing I could get into that would get us a colony on the moon or Mars more quickly or stop nuclear proliferation or bring world peace I'd be on that instead.
Somehow I just don't feel that finding a new star or curing a disease will further humanity in the way finding evidence of ETI would.
Perhaps this is an ignorant view, feel free to enlighten me.

Edit : There's a lack of a join button on the Calm Chaos team page over at seti since (at least) yesterday, independent of their servers being down for maintenance. Haven't thought to check other team pages, I'll do that when they come back up.

Edit 2 : I'm on the team! Wooo, RAC 244 inc to Calm Chaos!

Actually, the strife about them not analyzing data has been alleviated a bit because they finally got NtPckr up and running. It's not doing a whole lot of data checking ( relative to the amount of data that needs to be checked ) but at least now they are showing a good faith effort to show us that we weren't just crunching for the sake of crunching.

Our team never has ( and never will ) make any demands on which projects our members run or don't run. Every project is important to one person for reasons that may have another person running something different. It's part of being an individual, which is what this team is all about. :smt023

Welcome, officially, to the team. :-)
