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.

We 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 Mac Observer.

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.)
