OK, today is my day!!!!
First my bro just got his computer over the weekend, so today i got to do my first ICS. Its on dialup, but better sharing it than me getting pissed because i cant get on (guess who is the gateway =) ) Than since we have internet access i hooked him up w/ seti.
Also my KG7 came in, cant wait for the rest.
I also got 4 more machines to run SETI at school.

Cheez you going down. This lil sucker will be right behind you, and when you least expect it, I will beat you!!!!!!
Hahahahaaha!!! :flames: :flames:

I feel better now.

All my stuff arived today!!!
I also got some kick ass PC3000 Kingston memory instead of the 2700 that i ordered!!! :D :D I am a lucky *******!!!! this thing got the memory cooler onit. HyperX line.
Put the whole thing together and it works, but still has some quirks.
The only thing thats sucks is that i forgot that i have ISA modem, but no ISA slots. So i rigged up the old system (for which i need a case) to be my lil gateway.
Cant wait till this thing is running stable, so i can crunch some WU.
just thought i share.

That looks similar to my workbench but 3 of mine are desktops stacked on top of each other and a P4 beside them. Gee I better hurry up and get back into first spot as there's gettin' to be far too many Yanks on my ass. :D

Well those are the doners for the cluster have most of the lan cards, just have to get the image file set up on server host comp its been a fun project so far harder than i thought but a great learning expirence to be sure, never knew that networking could be so much fun! even beyond networking, there now is only one reason.....to WIN!;)

Wiggo
02-03-2003, 03:44 PM
Actually I'm not goin' diskless cluster as for the price of half that memory required I can get a 1GB HDD and use half that memory so each of mine will be cross cached so that if the server goes down while I'm not around there will be sufficent work units stored within the wall to last 4-5 days. Then I'll port the lot over to Linux if my experiments prove sucessful in that area and times can be improved by doin' such. :devil:

Day of Kane 2!!!!

Today was second day of Kane.
I found out how much $$$$ I will be getting back from IRS! :eek:
I had to look twice and count the zeros. I like what i saw.

Also I got my CompTIA A+ Certificate today in the mail! woohooo!!! : party ha
And I also got a PC tech certificate from my college. :cool:
Than I found that i did 100 WU in a month.


I need to find a place on the wall for all those certs.

Yesterday my car got hit, while it was parked!! Some people dont know how to drive. (than again in US its only $10 bucks for DL, so its like getting a slurpie in 7-11) But anyway, today i got the estimate for it and its $1100 bucks to fix it, which the guy will pay for. But since i got connections its going to run me a lot less than that!! So I will get some $$$$$$$$$

just thought i share.

You might want to watch out for one of my best friends...she is right behind you....quick...look over your shoulder...she's right there......yep thats her...the little red head with a vengeance..lil38spl....quick or shes going to pass you.....


sorry to hear about the rig bro...I feel for ya on the repairs and the anger at some putz hitting it!!! Just don't kick in his door or anything like that:devil:

kane2g
02-06-2003, 12:23 AM
Since i have a brother in the bussiness, the whole repeir will cost about $100. I am pissed that it got hit, but the extra $$ will probably get me another rig (so i get to crunch even faster), so i'm all good.

Last night the Linux(athlon750) box froze on me. So I got out the wallet and got:
1 x ABIT KG7-RAID Motherboard
1 x Visiontek GeForce4 MX440 64MB DDR Dual Head
1 x Thermaltake Universal Volcano 7+ (A1254)
1 x AMD Athlon XP1700+ 1.47GHZ 384K 266 Tbred B (TRAY) (JIUHB:0302)
1 x Kingston HyperX PC-3000 DDR 370Mhz 512M,KHX3000/512

The video card and 512stick will go into the 2000 box.
The current Geforce2MX400 and a stick of 256 will got into the new 1700 box. It hopefully will run RH a lot better and stable too.

Maybe its the stupind bluecurve GNOME that RH8 ships but its not stable for $*!7.
The 750 will go on as a spare system. It will still crunch SETI of course!

Cheez, Enjoy what you have, bacause i will take it away from you!!!!!!
Muahhhahahahaha! :laugh: :cackle: :cackle: :laugh:

starting to look like my office...i only have 4 in here right now. Remodeling my spare bedroom which is 12'x9', and turning that into my office. Present office is only 9x9, not a lot of space. I will post some pics of it when i get things online and up and running....seti cluster is kinda on hold till that happens. there just isnt enough room in here to put anything else. New office has one wall extending into the closet 14' long, that will be the new desk and the rest of the closet is going to be where the seti rack goes....But dont know if i need it tho...i am still pulling ahead of Kane with just the two comps running Seti.....catch me if you can!:cackle:

I got my xp2000+ and the 750athlon running seti, so i get about 8+ WUs a day, but as soon as the new system shows up(monday) I will be doing a lot better. Like I said before, enjpy it for a while, its not going to be long before im on your toes again.

They will be in about 2 weeks as sadly here power is at the limit but the new garden shed has plenty of power (those should add another 11w/u's each day). :D

I bet.
People in downtown NYC would probably pay $1400+/mo. for an appartment this size. :crazy: :crazy: :?:

NE way, when you get it done, let us see it.
I was thinking about getting the rack and mount the cases and the Cisco router that i am planning to get, But that shelf thing looks like a good idea. I gotta go and see what i can come up with. I need one of those too.

Ok so it look like at the moment Cheez is about 55 WUs away.
But Im comming up fast.
bioless is going to go down next. By the Wed for sure.
The new system is comming in on Mon. so be carefull Cheez, you will have to get the cluster up so you can keep up. :D

How many systems do you have crunchin WUs???
These are the ones that i know of
6 in your sig,
1 "Lightning"

How about the ones in the pics?? are those crunchin too?????

Wiggo
02-16-2003, 11:31 PM

kane2g Ok so it look like at the moment Cheez is about 55 WUs away.


At last count i had i was way over 55 away from ya...more like 70 or so. You need to hurry up and get that system online...(remember i am only running two comps on seti) New office has the trim all installed and the paint is getting purchased in the am. When I move into the new office the cluster gets running....I am pulling you by about 2-3 WU's a day right now when the cluster gets up and running....hhmmm well I dont know. I am looking at wiggo as the Next challenge

kane2g
02-18-2003, 04:04 PM
Oh its up as of 11PM.
And its doing better times than my 2000+.

But the xp2000 multi-tasks so its normal to see a slowdown.
BTW as of right now i got 335WU and u got 400?
so thats only 65.
With some luck, I could be on your toes in a week.

CheeZmonZter
02-18-2003, 04:15 PM
Yes.but i only download the other comp once a day or once every two days...check the stats...take a log of them for a couple of days...then get back to me.

kane2g
02-18-2003, 04:17 PM
Remember that Wiggo has like 11 machines laying around. If he runs them, it would be pretty hard to chatch up to him. :beer:

02-18-2003, 04:23 PM
thats why its a challenge!

kane2g
02-18-2003, 04:30 PM
I do the same.
Usually when I leave the system to download something overnight, the Setidriver will submit the completed WUs.

But I also found the group page not to be updated as often as I would like so i get most of my stats from
http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/fcgi-bin/[email protected]&cmd=user_stats_new
and i log them there.
I used to do about 7-9 WUs a day, but now i can easly expect that number to grow to about 13+

kane2g
02-26-2003, 02:46 PM

I've underestimated myself :o
So I'll see you in the #5 spot soon CheeZ!!! :D

CheeZmonZter
02-26-2003, 02:59 PM
that's nice. But i still have the other computer to down/upload. So when you seem me take a huge leap ahead...

BTW what progie is that that tallies how many you do perday....cause I would like to know how many these two are doing....i have an idea...and its more than 20 but would be nice to have it in black and white, Ya know?






and the Ghz slowly keeps going up

kane2g
02-26-2003, 03:23 PM
I got it of the link you sent me. its called SETIWatch, but you have to go through [email protected] site to get it.
I think if SETISpy would have a way to monitor multiple systems, and have the WU/day I would love it. But not its only OK-Good range.

lil38spl
02-27-2003, 09:22 AM
how do you define different locations on SetiWATCH for the same user?

kane2g
02-27-2003, 11:39 AM
Go to the last tab, Options
and there is a button called SETI Locations
If you use SETIDriver, there is a check that you have to check so that it sees it as a running one. If you dont it will show up as work stopped. ;)

Would you mind elaborating on your setup with the 6 "old" computers on the shelf? Like, how are they networked/joined together? Do you control them all using only one keyboard, mouse & monitor? Thanks.

kane2g
02-28-2003, 11:03 AM
you can control multiple computers w/ KVM switch.
KeyboardVideoMouse = KVM
there are 2 4 6 and i think i saw an 8 port model on ebay.

Wiggo,
Would you mind elaborating on your setup with the 6 "old" computers on the shelf? Like, how are they networked/joined together? Do you control them all using only one keyboard, mouse & monitor? Thanks. I've got 3 x 4-way KVM's (for remotes) and a few switches (5/8/16 ports) to handle the 19 PC's that I have (once I get this network back together again that is) plus 2 more are still to be assembled. ;)

Thanks for the reply Wiggo. I know you're busy.

I guess I'll have to do a bit of research as I am familiar with routers and hubs, but KVM's and switches are a Greek to me.

Wiggo
02-28-2003, 11:54 PM
A KVM just lets ya use one keyboard, monitor (video) and mouse to control a certain number of PC's without the cost of the extra hardware to run them. ;)

the prog you're asking is setiTeam.
The only thing i dont like about it is that it only sees the TTteam page, and since that isnt really up to date, The results are usually from previous day :(
but it tracks all the team members so its :cool:


I will be back in #5 spot soon as well.

CheeZmonZter
03-01-2003, 06:45 AM
thanks...I tried to install that but it wigged out gave me an error messege and wouldnt run...I am redownloading it right now.

kane2g
03-01-2003, 10:54 AM
hey elrado1
you can pick up 4 port one for about 50bux on ebay.
the 6 and 8port versions are a lot more like about 200+
but im sure to Wiggo its no biggie as he gets them as "test units: for review" right wiggo? Or are you that rich??


Hey cheez, i dont know about the error. Mine installed w/o problems.

Wiggo
03-01-2003, 11:09 AM
No to both but the 4 port jobs are cheap enough though. :D

kane2g
03-04-2003, 12:49 PM
just picked up a 2 port (misread the title, 2 mins left on auction) from ebay for $15. Comes w/ cables too.
I was looking at 4port ones, but this one will do OK.
I will get the 4port and hook up the 2port to my second out from main box and another "farm" computer. :)

What i meant to say is
Will you submit more WUs that i will?
Thats a lot of crunch power that i got there, even tho you got your diskless setup and all, will you be able to crunch more WUs?

03-05-2003, 11:00 AM

You're all goin down when I get my 700 Ghz processor.....go look at my latest post in the gaming section....muahhahah then I will reign supreme and all of your pitiful workstation will bow before their master:devil:
700???? Hmm.
OK if you say so.
Unless you have like a 1000 of 700Mhz. or 500 of dual 700 or 250 or dual 1.4s or something like that.
700Ghz I think you would constantly be sending in your WUs. actually you spend more time downloading and uploading units than processing them!!!
BTW who makes 700Ghz chip ??? Nevergonahappen Inc? or maybe Notinmylifetime Co?
hehe

hey elrado1
you can pick up 4 port one for about 50bux on ebay.
the 6 and 8port versions are a lot more like about 200+
but im sure to Wiggo its no biggie as he gets them as "test units: for review" right wiggo? Or are you that rich??


Hey cheez, i dont know about the error. Mine installed w/o problems.

Thanks for the advice Kane. I just picked up the 4 port KVM shwon below from Provantage: http://www.provantage.com/scripts/go.dll/-s/fl00net_.htm

It was the least expensive I found using PriceGrabber. http://www.provantage.com/scripts/go.dll/-s/fl00net_.htm

And the cables from Newegg. Free shipping :)

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?DEPA=&submit=Go&description=KVM

BTW, buy the male-to-male cables not the male-female cables, like I did :( Now I havew to pick up some Gender Changers. Oh well.

And, now I have capacity for one more machine on the network. Hmmm...

Here's a SETIWatch shot of my in-house comps, except for My Daughter's 2100+ AMD, which, with its Windows XP, is no longer joining the Win 2000 machines on the network. It has the best performance at 3.5 hours per SETI unit. And that I'm happy about!:)

I'm Polish, born and raised. Any problems???:shoot:
hehe.
BTW here's a pic of mine. Just got it in. I still need a 4 port one.
What are the 2 dual cpu systems that you have?? are they like 300 or something??

elrado1
03-09-2003, 01:04 PM
No problem w/ being Polish. I have worked with several in the architectural field during my career. Great people.

The dual cpu machines are based on, quite antiquated, Intel PR440FX mobos, which were designed for the Pentium Pro cpu. An Overdrive PII/333Mhz CPU was eventually manufactured for the Socket 8 motherboards and that is what I have in the two machines I presently have working. (I have a third mobo that may be DOA, but I'm going to give it another try, when I get a chance. It will get 200 MHz PPros, though.)

Link for PR440FX: http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/pr440fx/index.htm

I'll take a pic of one and upload it when I get the chance. There kind of neat.

I got into the PPro machines because the father of a friend of my son gave him 2 NEC computers that had PPro 180's in them. I (we) could not get around the password protected NT os and since my son didn't care about them, I eventually gutted them. No loss really. Then, since I had 2 PPro cpu's I thought I'd put them together in a dual cpu board. I eventually went overboard, learning about and buying this type of system on eBay.

Anyway, after seeing the performance of the AMD 2100+ (my Daughter's machine), which runs at 1.73Ghz and turns a SETI unit in about 3.5 hours, compared to my 1.5GHz P4, which handles one in about 5 hours, I would prefer to build a machine based upon dual AMD machines. I'm sure the AMD devotee's will agree.

Bored, yet? Ok, I'm done for now. :cheers: :cheers:

kane2g
03-09-2003, 02:51 PM
if going dual AMD, i think S2460 by tyan is pretty popular choice. It goes for about 100-150 on ebay. I was looking into it for a Seti cruncher, but I'm a cheap *******, so i went with the KG7 again, which I seem to like a lot (read: I bought all of them for about 40 bucks each). It doesnt have as great overclock as 8rda+, but I rather have 3 of KG7s :)
Also since I bought one w. a warranty, if any of them brakes, its going to be replaced. ;)

elrado1
03-09-2003, 11:26 PM
Sounds like good dealings! ;) There is something positive about staying with something you're familiar with. Are your KG7's coming with or without cpu's? What's the speediest cpu they can handle?

:cheers:

kane2g
03-10-2003, 08:04 AM
#1 KG7Raid + 2000xp Palmino.
#2 KG7Raid + Xp1700 Tbred B
#3 KG7Raid + waiting on another XP1700 B.
Just won another auction for KG7Raid, hehe, but i am not going to put it together for about a month or so. paid 25 shipped for mobo, plus a celeron, some modems, NIC, memory some other junk.
The #2 is running at 1786 (143x12.5)
#1 is running 1724 (138x12.5)
I dont need any more. I dont want anything to be over 40C so i dont OC them any more than that.
I got Kingston HyperX in #1 and 2, but 3 and 4 will use some PC2700 that i picked up for 20 bucks.
1 & 2 use V7+ 3 & 4 will have V9s in them.


BTW 40 bucks only got me the board, but thats w. warranty from Abit, so its all good. I got another one for 35 (i think) for ebay. the #4 was part of a computer stuff lot. and #3 i got for 25 form forums. Hmm, i think i will make a list of everything i got and post it sometime.
Also I think that i will play w. water cooling #4, so i dont expect anything for about next 4 weeks, cuz i need money as i spent too much! hehe

Well here I have HOS vs2.1 as below in my Sig. I have HOSOG an AMD 1.333 running at about 1.4 or so..can't remember. as well as Lil38spl who joined my cause to beat Kane, and one other that I don't know what it is running at a friends house, I think its somewhere around a 1.8 P4. and thats it for right now but I just finished (today) wiring the new office for power and phone. And was supposed to be building a new desk but I dont know when that is going to happen so I think I might just move into there without. When that is all online I will have the diskless cluster online and we will see what happens.

Sorry thats an inside joke, not offense taken at all. I figured out the power problem and should be getting that fixed here in the next day or two. Then i Can get my comps all moved and everything hooked up. One of these days i will get my Tax return and have some money! then we can rock!

Hey Cheez, you got lucky!!! I have to RMA my board, and its going to take a few weeks to have it up and running, so we're going at the same pace, i guess.
Lots of luck with the diskless cluster. let us know about anything exciting.

you got it...takes less electricity and will increase my comps available since its just a mobo, floppy, psu and NIC. Dont have to power a monitor or HDD's at all....i have a few systems laying around and shoudl be getting a few more here soon....

here is a pic of the nodes. One on the left is a 400 and two on the right is a 333. more are to come. I have a couple of AMD 1.3's to toss into the mix here but they still have to be yanked outa the cases. and they are not "diskless" yet,)or for that matter even online) i still have to make the boot disks and cables to tie them into the net work.

Know of anywhere toget the proper cables? I don't have any cables to link them together. Is this the sort of thing that an office supply store would carry? Thanks for the info, the only thing I have ever done with these is conect an old monitor to it but that power cable was part of the monitor.

Well have the server run on the machine that you want to spy on!
Make sure there is a password, mine (winVNC from www.realVNC.com) will not allow the server to run w.o a password! cool!
I also use names of the systems instead of the IP addresses.
Thats all there is to it, i think.
I will be setting up another system soon so if I missed something I'll let you know. But they have good how-to on their website too.
Hope this helps!

First my bro just got his computer over the weekend, so today i got to do my first ICS. Its on dialup, but better sharing it than me getting pissed because i cant get on (guess who is the gateway =) ) Than since we have internet access i hooked him up w/ seti.
Also my KG7 came in, cant wait for the rest.
I also got 4 more machines to run SETI at school.

Cheez you going down. This lil sucker will be right behind you, and when you least expect it, I will beat you!!!!!!
Hahahahaaha!!! :flames: :flames:

I feel better now.

Ya know?...hhmmmm that post was over 2 months ago....hey Kane.....Just what the heck is going on over there? I have been waiting for the Seti Cluster to get going but could have been running all the systems this whole time. Are ye daft boy....what are ye doin? cmmmmmmmmmmmoooooooooooooooooon now.

Man they have "plan B"!!!
Its like they have formed a SETI-war-plans or something!
They are getting organized! Against someone who is bellow them!!!!!
Thankfully I am not that paranoid to really care! And I am not at 100% output as the S2390 went to the RMA to get its PS2 ports fixed. So running shorthanded so far.
But who cares as long as I'm still catching up to you. All (insert the nubmer of users that use Cheez's account here) of you!!!!


BTW amd_man2003:
lil38spl is running SETI under Cheezmonster as they have ganged up on me so that I will be beaten.

Hey lil38spl: If I get on top and Cheez will have his cluster up, but unable to catch me, will you still contribute to him or to yourself???? Just wondering if you are going to be permanetly there or is it just a temp thing?

I is parts board. The S2390 is out for RMA and it has 1.3 duron waiting on it..... There also is that Athlon 1.4 but thats not for me. its for Blurp. He needs something better.
I think thats all of them.
So watta ya think???
Am I worthy enough to pass the almighty CheeZ team????

2 x XP1800+'s

Wiggo
03-27-2003, 09:56 AM
About 13.5hrs for the PII400 down to 15hrs for the PII300 and Celery333 but they all add up (the K6-2/3/+'s don't have a real FPU which is why they take a bit longer). :beer:

Kane, honey...

1. Mmmm... paranoid... well, I am not the one with a million and one utilities to forecast exactly where the ranking will stand at any x time... ;)

2. I am just one little machine, I don't even stand the chance to compete with y'all... :tears: so I am helping out the game as much as I can... and once CheeZ is up and running, I will go back to contributing to myself and watch my numbers go up slooooooowly ... :bounce2: (I LOVE the bouncy ball smiley, it kills me!)

3. You still have more machines running Seti than the "almighty CheeZ team" !!!!!!!!! Whatcha trippin' on, Willis???? :afro:

4. I am still not getting something... whether you have 10 machines in your room, or 9 friends to help you, what difference does it make? It's still 10 machines running it for ya! :confused:

kane2g
03-27-2003, 01:05 PM
1. The million and one utils help me pass time as I am tired of watching the numbers change. So it keeps me interested.
2. One machine or more. It doesnt matter. Dont think of it as competing against us. Think of you as contributing to the TTteam.
And i think you can take out quite a few people, not as fast as the "farmers" but it still counts.
3. I might have at the moment, but I dont know the power of the "almighty cluster." Hell it might not be very fast at all, its a psychological weapon. I am worried about it.
4. I dont mind you guys gainging up on me or anything. But I would like to see a sub team of sorts to see how much is Cheez and how much is "the rest" of the team.
I do suspect that Cheez is doing most of the work - about 80percent or so.

Meanwhile, all 8 machines are wherring away, crunching units without interuption and sending them in un-attended as long as the power remains on, which should not be a problem.

Keep crunching Kane. Cheeze seam to have breathed new life into his crunching ability to stay ahead!

You never did answer how many systems you have running over there. Congrats on passing me finally. You went from 121 back and passed me in a little more than a week. You seem to have sped up whereas I have slowed down! I have been having a lot of issues with my comp locking up so that has not helped me stay ahead of you at all! Hopefully I will one of these days get the cluster running but the guy that has been working on it with me has not had the time to get by here to lend a hand...I dont know enough about hacking Windows down small enough to get it to boot into the Ram drive necessary. Glad to see it....hope you don't plan on staying in my spot for long!

kane2g
03-31-2003, 04:53 PM
Well ATM Im running
450Mhz p2 -- brothers
750Athlon -- oldie but still good!
XP2100 -- main system
XP1700 -- My SETI master. It seems to cruch the fastest.
XP1700 -- Same setup as above, yet dont crunch as fast. Must be the memory or something.
1.3Ghz Duron - with some "other" (read nonKG7) motherboard.

There are parts laying around for few more systems, but not planning on getting them up anytime soon. I got to pay bills.
BTW Ever since the manager gave us the copy of CS I've been playing it for few hours each day. So dont worry, I think I will be in this spot for a quite a long time.

CheeZmonZter
04-01-2003, 01:55 AM
Its no wonder you passed me. You have more comps online than the entire "Team" here. Right now "we: are running:

AMD 2700+ (2.6 hrs) when its not locked up
P4 2.4 (about 3 i think)
AMD 1.3 (6hrs)
AMD 550 (might as well not even be running its so slow) (28hrs)
P Duron 1.8 (7hrs)

so I can now see why you screamed past me. Not to worry I should have a couple of 2100+ systems here in the next week as my Tax return will be here by then $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

kane2g
04-01-2003, 12:33 PM
Duron 1.8??? they made duron faster than 1.3?

NE way
I get 3hr times per unit. varies from system to system. But only few WUs got below 3hr mark (maybe 50 or so)
The athlon takes 11hrs
Duron 1.3 takes 4.5hrs
and slow 450 takes 13.

I just got a 800 Duron, cuz a guy shipped me the wrong chip. So I will be getting another XP1700 thats going with a mobo to Blurp. Its going to get rid of some mobos that are laying in my room.
How about getting the cluster up!! :confused:
