Plans for our transition to BOINC are here:
Moving [email protected] to BOINC (http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/boinc_transition_plan.html)

The news is pertinent to [email protected] and ClimatePrediction.net too.

This should be good as w/u's from Parkes won't be to far behind. :thumb:

all [email protected]/BOINC accounts will start with zero credit.
So were starting from scrach!

What will happen with programs like SETIQueue and SETI Monitor?
These programs (which have been very useful with [email protected] Classic) won't work with [email protected]/BOINC. Their main function (buffering multiple work units) is provided by BOINC itself, which allows you to specify how much work your computer should get each time it contacts the server.

I dont like that already! Seems to me that its just gonna slow it down! :confused:

It is possible that one or more viruses/worms are circulating around the internet installing [email protected] on infected computers. For more information, click here (http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/virus.html) for more information.Wild! I hope this doesn't give anyone we know any ideas... :(

[b]Eventually other distributed computing projects (like [email protected] and ClimatePrediction.net) will also use BOINC, and you'll be able to share your computer time among projects of your choosing.this must mean that the new client will be able to handle a variety of WU and not just the standard [email protected] WU. This should be interesting to see how this gets used with [email protected] In a way I think it is probaly for the best. It considates the R&D of DC clients so these clients get better optimized (Linux specificly here) and thus crunch faster. But the Stanford is still developing improved clients, so they must not be planning on switching to this Bionic client anytime soon.

...so they must not be planning on switching to this Bionic client anytime soon. None of this seems to be happening too fast. I'm looking forward to the BOINC client that will take advantage of not only the CPU, but the available memory and/or the GPU and its memory. Nifty idea!
