I set up a BOINC account a while ago and I remember reading somewhere that SETI credits would transfer to BOINC credits. Anyne know when this will happen?

The current credit you get running BOINC right now are beta credits. This is the credit you receive for running the BOINC beta test and will be separate from the credits you receive for running it when BOINC releases (out of beta).

I'm curious do you know how sensitive this seti search is? Could it pick up Earth if it was like 50 light years away? Remember the signal strength would only be what Earth was putting out 50 years ago. I believe the signals get weaker farther out. I thought I heard at one time we would have to get a signal aimed at us by accident or on purpose for a signal to be detected.

Sorry if you believe I'm off topic here but I'm hoping you don't mind questions on Seti.

The credit now earned using BOINC will be reset to 0 when it releases. Remember, this is a beta test. The current ATS Seti@home team will be moved over automatically to BOINC. The current ATS BOINC team is for the beta test.

Hi xn!

Thanx for the confirmation, although the news is not especially welcomed


However, you Beta (and Alpha) testers have done a great job (and will continue to do so I'm sure!) and will make the "official" transistion to BOINC from SETI@home much easier for the likes of me, who has yet to "take the plunge"!!

Heartfelt thanx to all BOINC "trailblazers"!!

BOINC beta will end once about 42 bugs are fixed, which could be next month or sometime during the summer. I believe you get a certificate once you complete 100 workunits. If you move to BOINC, you won't get the certificates. However, certificates for BOINC is being planned, but no word when this will happen.
