Just a reminder for old beta testers and notice for people who haven't been to the beta forums... there is an IRC channel set up to discuss Boinc and Boinc projects.
It's running on freenode with a relay to ChatJunkies.
Otherwise, check out <a>http://boinc-irc.com[/url] and <a>http://logs.boinc-irc.com/[/url] for information about the channel, including a link to a ready-made mIRC client set up for #boinc and some Java applets I set up to get people there quickly and easily.
IRC has the advantage of being 'realtime' so you can get a response quicker than on forums... most of the folks idling in there now have been using boinc for several months, many before the public beta. We have a few of the top crunchers from Beta in there. Alpha testers, such as myself, are also frequently in there. We've even been known to have a certain developer stop in every now and then...
So if you need some help or just want to chat about boinc, seti@home, or just about anything else, stop on by! :-)
