Somehow I'd like it cut in stone The Truth - everyplace on the main system it still says I'm a participant since March 2010! That's +19 years and a lot of electrons over the quantum jumps and back.

I didn't think it mattered to me until I suffered a systems crash that wiped out my SETI data on my machine.

In some places the data's right - under a different name, YAWinston Smith started with SETI@Home back on 26 May 1999, shortly after the news went out.

In some places it says I've completed 863,098 Cobblestones of new work units, + an apparently forgotten number of old-style work units, the most I could squeeze out of a 16 MHz '396, followed by a 486DX66 and my (please Murphy let it survive forever) T-41 IBM Thinkpad.) a P-2 bigcase, P4 smallchip then bigcase - that one ran alongside the 'P2-266 for a while, a P4-3 GHz Big Box that died apparently of jelousy when I built my current I7 Bigchip.

In some places the workunits continue to mount - from 0 to 121047 on my I7, ignoring the valiant decades of labor by its predecessors.

OK, where is the data stored in my Home Unit's programming (no, I do hardware fairly well, but I can't program my way out of a paper bag.

Please send a "personal" if you know the code well enough. and please be the real thing, just not someone who "knows the last line"<g to them who get it, but, by name and sig, you all should!>

seti/boinc data files are found under documents and settings/allusers(for me)/application data/BOINC for windows XP
Be aware that the application data folder and subfolders may still be hidden on your PC. you can unhide these folders by clicking Tools/folder options/view/ and click "show hidden files and folders" click OK and you should see the files

I assume this is what you are wanting

I count 10 years on that, your account page shows all the data about your classic seti and new BOINC seti

YOu aren't counting WU's anymore you are counting cobblestones(credit) you earn from each Workunit. Not all WU's are equal thus the need to change how each WU is scored

It appears that around the end of January 2010 you created a new account and that is the account you are processing wu's in now.
