      SETI@home completes the switch to BOINC
      ----------------------------------------------------
      SETI@home has completed its transition to BOINC (Berkeley Open
      Infrastructure
      for Network Computing). BOINC, developed at U.C. Berkeley, is a
      framework for
      volunteer computing projects like SETI@home.

      Switching your computer to the new "SETI@home/BOINC" is easy.
      Visit
      http://setiathome.berkeley.edu for instructions. We'll be
      shutting down the
      "SETI@home Classic" project on December 15. The workunit totals
      of users and
      teams will be frozen at that point, and the final totals will be
      available on
      the web.

      Scientists at other universities are using BOINC to create
      volunteer computing
      projects in areas like molecular biology, high-energy physics,
      and climate
      change study. See http://boinc.berkeley.edu for more information.
      BOINC lets
      you donate computer time to multiple causes, divided up however
      you want. For
      example, your PC could spend 40% of its time searching for
      extraterrestrial
      life (SETI@home), 30% studying climate change
      (http://climateprediction.net),
      and 30% studying protein folding, design and docking
      (Rosetta@home:
      http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/).

      You can run SETI@home 100% of the time if you want. But we
      strongly encourage
      you to participate in other projects. Doing so ensures that when
      SETI@home is
      down or has no work, your computer stays busy helping other
      researchers.

      Support SETI@home
      ----------------------------------------------------
      SETI@home is increasingly reliant on individual donations.
      Without the support
      of individuals like you the project will not be able to continue.
      We urge all
      SETI@home participants to make a yearly donation to keep the
      project going:
      http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/donate.php

      ----------------------------------------------------
      Thanks again for your participation in SETI@home.
