I've calculated about 390 classic WUs with SETI@Home, before I migrated to BOINC last week. But my new stats says that I've only have calculated 320, wich must have been the case when they converted the database earlier this year.
Are they going to update the database again before trashing the old system or wont I get any credits for the ramaining 70 WUs?
I believe...

It's been hypothesized yes. And until recently that's all it's been. However ROM on the dev team just confirmed that another snapshot will be taken when they prepare to take the old servers offline, but he will find out more on Monday.

It all depend wether or not they do another Snapshot, which i am also hoping for, but if they do it will be frustrating for people who have joined BOINC as they may have info that no longer matches, emails, names ect. I have changed everything, but i have also changed SETI classic to match. i just hope they do make another snapshot.
Snapshot: 401 current:418 hope:500

On SETI Classic and SETI BOINC you have a unique account number that is used in URLs (also stated in your user account for BOINC) which is probabl what would be used for transferring the account. I don't know if the number is the same or not between the 2 versions, but I would hope that there is some kind of record kept to match account numbers to work around such problems as you described.

Alternatively, they could always use some sort of manual transfer where you use one of the two websites to transfer the old account data if you care to do so. That would probably require people to login to their SETI account (passworded one) on the old page and sending the data to the "user hash" for BOINC, but I suppose it could work in reverse order. Who knows, I imagine we will get some information on it tomorrow when they discuss it tomorrow and Rom gets back to us with some of the details.
