Re: seti at home

The worst part about this is that your results actually aren't an anomoly.
According to the statistics for the seti page alpha nt is faster, in terms
of time for each block than alpha linux. Granted thats an average that could
be brought down by more people running slower alpha's with linux (armys of
multi's) and a few people running very fast new alpha's with nt (like some
cgi house whose admin runs seti on the boxes at night) but who knows, they
are just statistics. I assume it probably has something to do with the
compilers, but thats right out of my arse, I really have no idea. As Twain
said there are 3 kinds of lies:
damned lies
and statistics
