Since the stats are sitting on my server, I was thinking about picking up where NecroScope left off. All of the formulas are in an Excell file, I was just wondering about how to have some sort of automation or what have you to pull the info off of the SETI servers. If Necroscope would fill me in on how he does it, that would be appreciated.

I've been watching this forum and the LWD forums for a week trying to decide what team I want to join. These are dead!! The deadest forums for SETI I have ever seen for a SETI team.

Are you the only one in here Hammy?

Oh well... I'm going to join the LWD team. I'll still check this thread to see if anyone replies.

I'm here too,
We have quite a few people proccesing daily. For some reason latley there hasn't been much chatter in here.
So that brings up a good question.....
<b>WHERE IS EVERYBODY ?</b>
But we could use the help to catch back up with LWD if your trying to find a team to join.

hey - yeah, we're around - it's just that we get on with it rather than talk about it!!!

Actually I see the membership has grown by several the past few weeks, which is cool.

But basically - what are we going to post, day in, day out? Remeber that most people in Seti forums are just posting the regular BS. we have a lot of other forums where we do that in here, and chew the cud with non-seti people while we are at it!

I come to read this forum like every other day. but for like the last 2 weeks their hasnt been jack here... we need some new competition or a new program to join or something. hehe

it kinda died after we reached 200, cuz its like now what, we cant really get to number 1. well we COULD, but thats not feasible within the next few months at least, which makes it hard for some competition... just some thoughts...

Well, we could always use more people. The more the merrier etc..
It's true there hasn't been many posts made here. But it's summertime, I've been out pounding the mountain bike into submission.

My Team contributions involve 2 or 3 WU/day and I host the SETI stats page that Necromancer did. Once he tells me how he retrieved the stats off of the SETI servers and put them into his Excel worksheet. After I acomplish that I will be running the stats page all by myself. Necromancer told me that he just doesn't have the time anymore. I am also hoping to be getting 25 or so P2-333s and a 1.33 T-Bird soon. That should boost my WU production to about 35 to 40 WU/day. We just gotta get some more people going....We gotta catch up to LWD.

I have heard from Lyngmark that he is not too pleased with the organization of the Cancer research thing, although he is firmly behind their cause. Maybe one day he and his PC can join the Betel Nut team again. I need to solve my Thermal problems and a compatibility problem with SETI Driver and I will add a few more PCs again to the SETI team. I personally was not pleased with the Cancer research thing as there were many units I lost in the middle and you had to be connected to the internet 24/7 with no caching program.

I was trying to look on the current stats: http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/cgi?cmd=team_lookup&name=tom's+hardware+guide
but it seems that the link is too old, anyone got a new link?

UD is screwing up today again, no way to upload units... well reading from this board seems that SETI are having similar problems... all these computers being idle...
Unfortunately UD cannot cache units and the time to crank one unit can be anything from an hour to several days (depends on luck) but recently the units are going very fast.
I sure miss SETI, but now when the graphs are not updated it's not fun anymore. UD also has no graphs...
I'm looking for something new to spend my serious idle times on, any idea? I heard about some AIDS research somewhere, anyone tried it?

Back from the dead :p Full time all year round collge, car wreck, moving, 40 hours a week, and my mobo dying have kept me pretty busy.

There is no easy way to pull it off the seti site, it takes about 15-25 minutes of work when I had it down pat, daily. I've got

Copy paste the whole stat page into the current date column, delete the last two colums of data, remove word wrap, insert if statement to check position changes, cut/paste the ones that have not changed first, then copy t he changed position names over to the old names, then carefully change the data of ones that have changed, then move the lines around so that the positions are in order, then drag the totals formula's over. Easy? heh Then go to the team performance page, change the weekly date because it will be wrong, update the names and max data, and erase the if statement name for the people that have a score of zero. Then go to top productivity page, update that. Then you are ready for the graphs. If there were any position changes for the people in that graph, then it needs to be updates by click and drag, and sometimes it will mess up and show no data. To correct that just add a name for the chart like 'Date'. You may need to change the min/max value for the charts so it's all visible.

Of course there is more but hopefully this jumble of words will help somehow. I reccomend you update it every 2 days instead of one.
