    Plans for our transition to BOINC are here:
    Moving SETI@home to BOINC

    The news is pertinent to Folding@home and ClimatePrediction.net too.

    all SETI@home/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 SETI@home Classic) won't work with SETI@home/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 SETI@home on infected computers. For more information, click here for more information.
    Wild! I hope this doesn't give anyone we know any ideas... :(

    [b]Eventually other distributed computing projects (like Folding@home 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 s@h WU. This should be interesting to see how this gets used with Folding@Home. 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.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    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!
