Obviously not a word on SETI@home, to which the Allen Telescope Array is not giving any data to crunch. This reminds me of LHC@home, which does not receive any data from the LHC which has its own grid. I had to read an article on "Nature" magazine to learn that the operation of the ATA is financed by the US Air Force, which uses one third of the observing time for its purposes.

I've browsed the program. Even the Royal Society does not seem to acknowledge the existence of SETI@home.
