How could I download, say, 20 units for SETI to process in case my net connection goes down?

there's a few programs you can download to let you do that...I use SetiDriver on my laptop so when I'm at my dads and dont have an always-on connection (I have dial-up there) I can still keep chrunching

So uhh, where can I find these programs? My wireless broadband connection sometimes goes down during a really bad thunderstorm.

I used to manually download workunits using the commandline client, then cut and paste the required files into a folder. I had like 10 workunits at a time. I would process 1 until it's done, then cut and paste the required files into another folder (to send folder), then cut and paste a new workunit into the folder with the .exe file and process again. When I connected to the internet (once a day), I would cut and paste them into the folder with the .exe file and send them all one by one. I don't have to do any of this anymore, but I usually keep 1 extra workunit with me in case Berkeley's servers go down. BOINC will solve this problem by caching workunits (as much as you want).

wow...I'm in 85th place in the ATS SETI team rank thing...didn't even realize I was in the top 100

anyone have any idea when SETI@Home will be completely switched to BOINC? (althought it was probably posted before somewhere)
