Dear team,

i have the follwoing problem:

There is an existing boinc account that has already my classic SETI@home workunits added to it.
its this one
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_user.php?userid=276297
however, i cant access this "old" boinc account, i have no clue about the email adress i used these days. tried several already from the former university times i was at during this accounts creation. but nothing worked.

My actual new account on boinc is this one:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_user.php?userid=8270051

how can i transfer my workunits from the old 276297 account to my new one?

i even have some old user info from the classical system, in order to authenticitate:

Dear team,

Don't expect the SETI team to respond here. We are all volunteers as you are (unless you see that as team :-).

how can i transfer my workunits from the old 276297 account to my new one?

You can't. There's no way to achieve that.

i even have some old user info from the classical system, in order to authenticitate...

The only info that would help is the <authenticator> from the account_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml file in the BOINC directory from back when.

Gruß,
Gundolf

Do you perchance have a backup disk of the BOINC install on the old comuter (or even the old computer taking up space in an attic?)
