There is a thread in the

There is a thread in the Cruncher's Corner section about writing your own screensaver for Einstein@Home (afaik nobody has yet actually done an alternative screensaver/graphics window for E@H). I'm sure once the pulsar search is in "production", Bernd will be happy to release the source code for the pulsar search screensaver as well.

I am not a programmer. I did write some short programs in Basic - back when I had a Radio Shack color computer that used a cassette tape recorder as long term storage. Long long time ago!

I did learn to use TopCatLite v3.1 to create gifs showing multiple WU's. I will try and place those on a more appropriate thread.

Is there a way for us that is

Is there a way for us that is using app_info to run beta 6.10 for win to get the files to run both. I´m wondering because I saw the files listed in current version section (3.02 for win).

You could manually download the einsteinbinary_ABP1_3.02* files from http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/download/ and add a section for app einsteinbinary_ABP1 to the app_info.xml. However I doubt that this would make much sense right now as we are not issuing any ABP1 work in the next weeks and furthermore you'd miss updates to the einsteinbinary application.

Better help us test the 6.10 Windows Beta App so we can make it official and then switch back to the "official" path.

Ok have downloaded them just in case I should need them. I´m allready running beta 6.10 so I have to keep track of update myself.

Seti on these boards is not a good subject to bring up: many consider it to be outside the bounds of serious scientific inquiry.

I'd reckon it quite legitimate to discuss the science here despite how 'serious', or not, people think it is. I'm not aware of any negatives on the science of SETI, though perhaps some might confuse/confound the science with the social/philosophical/religious etc issues.

Of course we have SETI to thank for the whole distributed computing thrust in recent times, and there is considerable commonality with E@H in particular - needle in the haystack stuff.

I reckon it's a brilliant move to 'fold in' other targets of enquiry. It enhances the science value obtained from the volunteer base, and hopefully enthuses the crunchers too!! With fiscal issues more prominent these days, and likely science funding particularly, it looks to be a pragmatic way to achieve some hefty intellectual goals. :-)

Cheers, Mike.


Perhaps the idea will be to eventually have just one Boinc project where you check boxes to say what sort of WUs you'd like to work on. It would make it easier to keep up with what is out there. I've missed some projects that I found interesting simply because there are so many out there now.

Of course Einstein always has and always will be my favourite.

Physics is for gurls!

Isn't that what we've already got with the two account managers?

BAM and GridRepublic?

Happy crunchin',

For those with some physics

For those with some physics background, there's a nice poster explaining some details about the planned search here

Any chance to have an estimated % of work completed and work still remaining for the PALFA search, like we have for the S5R5 search on the einstein status page?

No.

The GW search is organized in "runs" that are performed one at a time (neglecting transitions), which have a number of workunits that is fixed at the beginning of the run.

The PALFA search is a more or less constant stream of workunits, it will end when ARECIBO stops taking data (probably we'll then even dig out data from before the start of our search that is still usable). In a sense this search never ends.
