Joining the team?

Hi there,

I’ve been running distributed computing apps for quite some time. I currently dedicate 2 computers at my work to SETI@home. I am currently a member of SETI.USA (don’t know why because I’m Canadian) but am looking to switch to Team Haiku. I noticed that SETI@home is no longer on the list of projects that the team participates in. Would it be a big crime to join the team but stick with SETI@home?

Are there any other prerequisites that I need to meet before joining?

Oops, which list are you looking at? We’ve moved our official site here:

and you’ll see our project listing here:

(that list is actually out of date - we participate in a lot more projects now!)

We certainly have no problem with you contributing to SETI@Home!! Our team page on SETI is here:

No prerequisites - although we would like it if you registered at our website: so that we have your contact information in the event that we need to contact you. Some of us also hang out in the #teamhaiku channel on if you ever want to stop by and chat with us realtime.

Thanks Urias. I’ve joined the team and registered on the site. I’ll add the IRC channel to my autojoin on connect. As always my user ID is TheNerd.

I noticed that I’m already second on the list in total for SETI@home on the team :).

Ah yes, you’re second in the list for Total Credit - but that credit does not follow you from your previous team I’m afraid :frowning:

Still, it looks like your RAC is very very good!

Haha yeah. It’s all good. I figured I’d join Team Haiku since I’m trying to participate in Haiku as much as possible.

Like I said in my first post I have 2 machines dedicated at work to SETI@home. Well I guess I really only have 1 that works 100% of the time. The other one is my main work machine but runs when I’m not using it and it’s left on in the evenings and on the weekend. I’m trying to get a hold of a couple other (older) machines to run as boinc/SETI machines at home. I’d really like to make a nice rack with a bunch of rack mounted servers there but that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon.
