My email changed since sah transfer the database of accounts to BOINC. Than when I try to activate my old account BOINC send the activation key to the invalid address. What can I do to recover my over 7000 units already processed to my new account?

Thanks

Serge

Probably there won't be anything you can do. However do change to your new email on seti I just in case they resync the databases.

a very good idea, but frustrating the thought that we have to speculate when the sh1 braintrust could answer the question with a one sentence post on the sh1 frontpage. I read about a supposed "snapshot" to come after sh1 closed, but I have yet to see anything official. why? there are loads of us wondering!!

as for the question and the 7k lost. I moved this past year and forgot to update my account--5years and 25k+ lost for me. not happy about it and it took me a week to decide to move on to boinc, oh, and for boinc, in my opinion, they went live before its time. why the rush?
