    Thank you SetiDriver!
    For those who don't know, SetiDriver is a caching utility that allows you to download work units in advance. That way, during downtimes like this, you aren't stuck with nothing to process. Check it out here .

    UPDATE
    I found this when trying to reach Berkely's servers today:
    Fiber cut silences [email protected]
    At about 3:30 AM PST on 27 February an optical fiber cable connecting the U.C. Berkeley campus with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory was cut, apparently by vandals trying to "salvage" copper from other nearby cables.
    The broken fiber carries data and voice connections for LBNL and also for the Space Sciences Lab. SSL is where the [email protected] project is located, so the millions of participants helping to analyze data have been unable to contact the [email protected] servers for more than a day.
    Contractors are pulling new cable now. It's expected that service to SSL will be restored by Friday, 2 March 2001. We'll update this page as we learn more about the progress of the repairs.

    I've burned up over half my cache. I don't think I can make it through the weekend, if it comes to that.

    I'm running on empty. My batch files started looping so I tossed in a sleep command so they don't chase their tails all weekend.
    When they come back online the servers are going to be swamped with completed work units coming in and requests for new work units.

    OK Team...
    I will have my slaves in over-drive for the next week or so. I have 3 quad processor Xeons ranging from 500mhz to 1ghz cranking on units, plus my normal stable of machines.
    I should be producing around 50 units a day by tomorrow evening.
    I am shooting for the #2 spot on the team.

    Help needed with the command line version.
    It looks like I'll need this version to run the seti-driver so I'm thinking of having a go. Up til now I've always thought it beyond my abilities.
    First can anyone advise me which version to dowload or if there is a version for my configuration? I'm running Windows 98 SE on an AMD Athlon 1200.
    Thanks in advance. John

    Chris,
    You're not the only one with recent upgrades! [​IMG] Within the past two weeks I've upgraded my office machine from a P2-300/128MB desktop to a P3-850/512MB laptop and my home machine from a P3-850 to a P3-1000. I should see a small uptick in my productivitiy. [​IMG]
    I also have a "spare" P2-300 laptop at home that I can include in my processing once my broadband gateway gets back from service. It won't turn out many units, but every little bit looks to be necessary if I want to stay in the top 30 for any period of time.

    Thanks for that Chris.
    Command Line version now installed and ScreenSaver version uninstalled.
    Still a few quetions for anyone who can help:
    It says to see progress, operate client with the -verbose option. Any idea how you give instructions separately to the setidriver interface? The winking cursor in the text window doesn't seem to accept text. Or by looking at the 'prog=' line in the state.sah file. How would I read this file?
    Also after removing the seti screensaver is there any way of blanking the screen after so many minutes? Can't see the option on other screensavers or in power management.
    Keep finding new questions, hopefully any answers will be helpful to others starting out with the cli version.
    All a bit new to me, perhaps there's a FAQ already set up somewhere that I haven't found yet. Thanks in advance, John

    Thanks for all that MickeS.
    After hunting through the screensavers there's not one called 'default' but there is one called 'blank'. Great, find I got used to the idea of just leaving a blank screen when not in use.
    The text version certainly runs a bit faster but what makes the real difference for me is not having to manually download each unit, just leave a seven day supply. My ISP doesn't allow a program to autodial in, so I've been waking up in the middle of the night, sweet talking the wife for when I'm away and generally having to be at seti's beck and call.
    Thanks again, John
