I have been trying to come back to Seti@home for some months now but all I ever get is this:

Wed Sep 15 18:48:44 2010|SETI@home|Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server

Wed Sep 15 18:48:45 2010||Internet access OK - project servers may be temporarily down.

Please help.

The SETI@home front page news explains it all:
Air Conditioning Update (Wednesday):
The air conditioning in our server closet failed on Saturday, causing several of our important machines to overheat. Most servers and services were immediately shut down to prevent damage and mostly remained down as initial attempts to fix the air conditioning system failed and new parts are being ordered. We just started the project up to help clear some pipes but some services will remain off, and the rest may go off again at any time. Sorry for the confusion/inconvenience.
