Observers Closing on Team User Friendly
- 6 June 2000
It's been a while since Team
Mac Observer (orange in graph) has moved up in the SETI@home club
team standings - but we're getting closer.
passed the FreeBSD and SETI@Home Poland teams in mid-May. At the
time, Team User Friendly (blue) was over 9,000 work units ahead of
us. We've been closing that gap slowly, somewhere on the order of 400
units per day.
As of this morning, we've cut their lead to 3,505 units. At this
rate, we should catch and pass them in 7-10 days,
After that, we'll be purusing Team NIPPON (green), but they won't
be easy to catch. We're currently averaging 812 units per day to
their 774. That means we're gaining 38 units per day - at the
current rate, it will take four months to catch up.
Frankly, we're looking for some help to get past Team User
Friendly and then Team NIPPON. After that, we'll work on SETI
Switzerland and the OS/2 Warp teams. By then we may have enough
members to take on the Linux team (averaging 830 units per day) and
O'Grady's Go2Mac.com Team (849/day). If you'd like to help the
fastest growing Mac team, here's the information on joining Team
Team Mac Observer has 650 members, including the "slow but steady"
Team 6100, which has seven members
running unaccelerated Power Mac 6100s and has completed 43 units
since May 2. (We bill ourselves as the slowest SETI@home team, which
may be a bit of an exageration. But if you have an unaccelerated 6100
available for use, we'd love to have you join the team.)
