      Subject: The ups and downs of SETI software


      To quote in part:

      VERSION 1.05 of SETI@home=92s client software was released=20
      Wednesday, June 30, which boosted daily traffic fivefold,
      said Dan Werthimer, an astronomer at the University of
      California at Berkeley who is the project=92s chief scientist.

      The original software was designed to notify users about the
      update as new pieces of data are exchanged, and Werthimer=20
      figured that meant the new rush would last about a week.

      The situation was complicated Thursday by a water main break=20
      on the Berkeley campus: The flood spilled into an electrical=20
      substation, with the result that the entire campus =97 including=20
      the central SETI@home servers =97 was disconnected from the=20
      Internet for several hours, said university spokeswoman=20
      Marie Felde.
      The outage sparked a flurry of messages on Internet
      bulletin boards from SETI@home users trying to upload
      and download data.
