Cool Anyone still on Seti? Have found a bit more since & something New for 2018

Seti@home was an early example of making the World into expanding the Server capacity To everyone's spare processor time and Very Successful it was with many new discoveries in the data .I've been running it for several yeas with no Success But Hey Many more similar projects rolled out and Then could be run under an Umbrella "Manager" Called BOINC Manager Which was originally hosted from the Netherlands and where Currently I Have 4 projects running:
XANSONS For COD which is something to do with Chemicals
Moo! Wrapper which runs several different projects
And then we have Amicable Numbers which is a number crunching Project whose explanation is this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amicable_numbers >Don't understand it but it pay well in Credits on a Multicore PC
And Lastly on BOINC we have another Maths project Called Ironically WUProp This is a very Low Pay out in Credits Keeps my Score from zeroing
Overall We have 19 Projects Running or rested Including SETI @ Home Which I rarely run (Pays low in Credit these days)
And The manager App Lists Retired Projects I have ran (7 Items)
Without being Big headed My computers What are running this App Have Got me to almost 4100 on the World Stats ( Ca 450000) & Ca 200/180K
Though my "Hosts" are showing their limits

The Good news is Many of Those accounts are Dead Top of the Leagues/projects is mostly all the University Clubs with very powerful spec computers So Climbing the Ladder to within a Few Thousand places behind the leaders over a month or 2 is not hard..Just set it to run and you are done

Lots of things to try and they do not slow the Computer down . Should emphasise that Overdoing the selections Does Cause the Processor/s to overload (even the HD Virtual drive) Took me a Few years (trial & error)to work a Compromise Load formula out Juggle /Supervising the Products Try 1 Project to start and then learn how the Boinc Manager App Works

A Few hours ago I received a new URL https://www.zooniverse.org/ via News article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-42644531 which looks Like the projects on BOINC manager But they are Individual Which is better from a Budget /newbie Angle and they look Very glossy and there are 70 Projects listed From the Arts to Space https://www.zooniverse.org/projects

I have no computer space spare and like the sound of some of these Items
Some of the diverse Items ..Some of which is Personal manual Viewing Interpretation As on the Wikipedia Type pages (Google Books/pages has? something similar running in recent years) OK for academics https://www.pcworld.com/article/2123...gle_books.html

Transcribe documents from the Parochial Archives Project in Rome

The story of the British Army on the Western Front during the First World War is waiting to be discovered in 1.5 million pages of unit war diaries. We need your help to reveal the stories of those who fought in the global conflict that shaped the world we live in today.

Shakespeare's World
Transcribe handwritten documents by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and help us understand his life and times. Along the way you’ll find words that have yet to be recorded in the authoritative Oxford English Dictionary, and which will eventually be added to this important resource

Classify Galaxies
To understand how galaxies formed we need your help to classify them according to their shapes. If you're quick, you may even be the first person to see the galaxies you're asked to classify.
You're Welcome.
