Well... I'm back.. But during the tyme I was not writing, it appears ONLY 60 members managed to turn in any work units.. That means that over the past 7 days, we managed to rack up 185 thousand credits... and thats it...
We had 2 gold stars today as both squito and PCRacer managed to crash past the 1/4 million Credit barrier. They didn't even hesitate as they con tinued up the ladder of success.. woot!!!
Not content with just that, squito nailed 3rd place in the top cruncher chart, and PCRacer snagged 8th.. Thats doubles for both of them.. woot.. Oh yeah.. Dave Rave snagged first with 24,539 Credits, and olive nailed second with 24,152 Credits... boo yah!!!
kerbell7ken was our top mover today, he used 1,311 Credits to snag a 6 place move up the team charts. There were several snarls and groans as he moved up the charts, but he just smiled, and walked away.. Very smoothly done.
And thats the end of our journey today. See you in a couple days. Sorry if the tone of this news was a little down, but I'm getting frustrated.It seems that no matter what happens, the team is declining. I don't see a lot of interest anymore, and honestly, I find that BOINC is not quiet as much fun as SETI classic was.. Its a real quandry, but I'm trying to keep things up for you guys. Because YOU are what matters. I believe in what SETI is doing, but I just feel that they have ended up leaching some of the fun out of it. I need to find a way to renew my enjoyment... Let me know if you have ideas (tho if you email me at the seti account.. make sure its CLEAR in the subject line what you want.. I get about 100 spam messages a day in that thing) Well.. I'm for bed.. g'night all
What its all about:
Why is sunspot 905 backwards?
Perhaps it is a key marker for the beginning of a new magnetic
cycle on our sun.
Every 11 years, our Sun goes through a
magnetic cycle, at the end of which its overall
magnetic orientation is reversed.
An 11-year solar cycle has been observed for hundreds of years by
noting peaks and valleys in the average number of
Just now, the Sun is near
Solar Minimum, and likely to start a
long progression toward the most active time, called
Solar Maximum, in about 5.5 years.
An indicator that the sun's magnetic field is reversing is the
appearance of sunspots with the reverse magnetic polarity than normal.
A few weeks ago, one small
candidate reverse sunspot was sited but faded quickly.
Now, however, a larger sunspot with negative polarity is being tracked.
This sunspot, numbered 905, appears as the unusual white spot in the
above magnetic image of the Sun taken with the
SOHO spacecraft a few days ago.
In the past few days,
sunspot 905 has actually begun to break apart and might also become the source of
coronal mass ejections and explosive
Solar astronomers predict that the coming
Solar Maximum will be unusually active.
