I thought I posted congratulations.  :blush1: Must've back scrolled the page before submitting. Sorry about that.

Well done StevenM, you've left another mark in history!  :worship :worship :worship Plus one for that effort. It may even be another plus one but it's worth it.  :congrats

Congratz stevenm and PLUS 1

True, it may not roll off one's tongue, but at least it (the discovery) will also not roll away from you, in perpetuity. v:

Well done Stevenm !!!

+ 1 for your discovery ...  :congrats :congrats :congrats

EDIT: Steven - which WU's are you crunching ? ?  Might give my machines a solid run at Einstein for a while after this AA... even if it means swapping over to the old nVidia GPU.

Thanks all for the congratulatory words and the karma.  Its much appreciated.  I sort of feel a bit lucky really.  Its a bit like winning the lottery.  I know you have to buy the ticket or in this case download the workunit, but its really luck of the draw as to which units contain something interesting.  Anyway I'm certainly not knocking it.  It is very exciting.

I'm running all types of workunits, though I think the Parkes data is in the Gamma Ray Pulsar Search #1, but I'm not 100% on that.  I sometimes use my GPU but I work from home and using the GPU while I'm working I find slows things down too much, so I don't run it all the time.

Thanks again for all the kind words.  I hope others in our team can have the same luck I did.  And all the best for another succesful the AA.

What a great idea. Badges ... smadges ... I want one of these!

"Discovery Certificates
Volunteers whose computers discover new pulsars receive framed certificates of appreciation. The latest batch is just being sent out! Here is a photo of one certificate and here is a photo of the boxes ready to ship to our vounteers.

Yes and they have a new ATI GPU application that I am now running on Linux and on Windows.  You need to download the 7.0.27 version of BOINC for the application to work.

Yep I am on the same bandwagon as Dingo, running fine on my HD 5850, averaging around the hour and 10 min per task, I have tried running two tasks and have had no problems, but I lose two cores which at the moment I dont wont to lose as their is an AA in progress.
