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.
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 7,930,000 -
for a grand total of over 7,960,000 work units crunched.
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.

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