Hi TMT/ all!!
Thanx for the questions EliteXizer, although we have quite exhaustive threads on BOINC already, as a glimpse at the
would show. You'll notice that xn has put in considerable efforts with
his Official BOINC Beta Test news thread
As regards BOINC itself - yes, SETI@home will close - have a look at the prime source, the
Future directions of SETI@home
which is found at the SETI@home web site.
I'm sure those in the team who are committed to the idea of distributed computing (which is about 80 members as of 3rd March 2004) will continue to
"donate" their computers to running BOINC, EliteXizer, and an ATS BOINC team will be established to represent us. I'm not currently using BOINC
myself, as SETI@home is well established, whilst BOINC is still in a developemnt stage (or so I gather from xn's updates).
When the time comes (as it will) to "move", then I suspect that either:
Simon will establish and manage the team?
An ATS BOINC manager(s) will establish and manage the team?
I hope that answers any questions you have EliteXizer but, as always, we will try to answer any unresolved issues!!!
Let's go ATS SETI@home (soon to be BOINC) team!!
