    This is from a page at the SETI@home web site:

    The current SETI@home search will wind down over the next year or so. However, we are working on new projects that will continue to use the computer power of millions of volunteers to further SETI and other scientific research. Our plans include the following:

    Our Australian teammates will undoubtedly take lots of pride in participating in the Southern hemisphere client. ;)

    Yes I think that I've mentioned before about Parkes comin' online soon and with its 13 focal points it'll be able to gather more data in less time plus cover a larger area than the Arecibo unit.

    so with seti winding down, will we switch to folding or will we switch to a new project if there is one? hopefully we will switch to a new project so that we can start fresh.

    We can go in whichever direction we wish. I, for one, will head for the new version of SETI@home when it arrives.

    Affirmative. Everyone will start out from scratch. That will make things more interesting. We've got interesting times ahead. ;)

    I wonder how the new WU's will stack up compared to the old Seti? I wonder if they are going to be about the same size and such??I just hope I catch and pass Kane before the old one runs out!!!! it would suck to be in 3rd grrrrrrrr:?: I am also happy that they have decided to let us choose what our computers are analyzing! Anyone have any idea when this is supposed tocome online? it said early '03...and we are past mid '03 now....hhhmmmm

    Thay projected a start of SETI@home client for BOINC in October of 2003 and the start of Southern hemisphere client in January of 2004, but the schedule is subject to change. The SETI@home data server is projected to end at the beginning of November of 2003, so there will be a gap before the Southern hemisphere client starts.

    A third new client AstroPulse (on BOINC) is projected to kick off December of 2003. And I quote from their page: "NOTE: This timeline is only an estimate and is subject to change."

    So, as you noted, we have a choice of clients. Other details have not been provided. : peace:

    ok i know that we all love the way that seti crunches and the utilities that go along with it, and also the competition that goes along with it. seeing that we have a folding team now and that it goes to a good cause, would you all consider going to folding when seti runs out? afterall we would still be together and it is a fresh start anyone?
