Personal-Best  SETI  Results


     The above graph shows some of the best gaussians (large black dots) that I have been able to screen-capture before uploading the results. They are all within what is described as the "interesting region". The blue dots are the results of others plotted by the SETI people. It appears there may have been a problem with the early versions of SETI software based on a gap in the blue dots - which was later rectified.

     Below is the best gaussian I have seen to date. It has a "fit" of 1.177.

Best Gaussian

     I have deemed the below plot my best triplett - not because of the 10.63 power, but because the pulses follow the bell-shaped curve and there are additional spikes out to the right.


     When "Classic" SETI shut down, my contribution was 32,765 units. Since then my "BOINC" SETI totals have reached over 8,300,000. I belong to the Wichita State University SETI Watchers. Our group provided a $500 prize to the individual who uploaded the 500 millionth SETI work unit. This milestone was reached on May 2, 2002, shortly after 1000 UTC by a young woman named Milada from the Czech Republic. Click the below icon to go to our group page at SETI.

     Some of the speed "tricks" I have learned over time include running SETI on my computers using a solid state drive.
