+1 million.
That feature is more than cool.

NOW I know what they used to shutdown the Borg Collective - it was SETI@home! *evilgrin*

As I see it, yes.

All info of FreeHAL, GPU projects, and the single CPU project will be taken into the database, and with the cpu-project it will be OK for the validator.

For overheating purposes I only use 3 of my 4 cores (I really HATE these CPU-fans provided by AMD) and for me everything is OK, so it does not count if you use 1 4 or 16 or zillion CPU cores as long as you use at least ONE for a CPU project.

I think shorter WU time will do it.

Because the "average" machine for a non-nerd runs 4 hours a day, in which it is used for ~1 hour. Means spare time=3 hours. Multiplied with 5 days deadline means max runtime 15 hours for the average "this is my typing machine and internet" computer.

And doubling the deadline means very much longer to build a good database. You need more than 2 or 3 WUs to know if project x really needs only 2 hours on computer y because there MAY be workunits running much longer than the 2 or 3 already inside the database.

And there are much of these machines running for seti or maybe 2 or 3 other projects - it will be interesting to see WU runtimes on these machines for the different projects. Because with the help of this projects the not-so-average user with a slow machine can decide "hey my computer is also good enough to crunch for THIS or THAT science-project" without asking in the forum.

For example I found a Transmeta Efficéon Processor in the list - I didn't even knew that such a thing existed. Had to google it up ^.^

Ah, by the way, it is collecting data for the cpu-apps. Is there also an overview of the gpu-apps?
