I am not from SETI@Home but I can answer your question. If you were not using the correct URL, you would have never gotten work units to begin with. Apparently, you have successfully attached to the SETI@Home project via that URL.

There are many postings on this board complaining about various problems while attempting to get work units and return results. I have faith that the bugs will get ironed out over the next several weeks.

SETI had been down so you couldn't download it, it should work now

That is the correct URL. Since each result must be validate by 2 others, credit can be delayed. If one or more of the results is not back by the deadline (2 weeks S@H, 5 days Predictor, 6 months rumor for CPDN, 5 days rumor for F@H), the WU will be sent out again to other computers, and the cycle starts again. Each computer gets a deadline based upon the time that the WU was sent to that machine.
