For right now, you have to wait until they get the raid fixed so we can get some work. Once you get some work units, finish them and send them in, you have to wait until your wingman (other person doing the same work unit) finishes. If they match then you will get credit. If they don't quite match then it is sent out to another to check to see which is right. When two results match closely enough then you get credit.

You should be able to get work now, but have you even installed BOINC? Your id is not showing a computer because BOINC has not yet contacted the project. Once installed, use it's menu option to select / attach to SETI. Then it will ask for work.

To download BOINC for Windows:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_6.12.33_windows_intelx86.exe

The "Getting Started" Forum in the Q&A section of the website sis a good place to get help in gettting started.

Welcome to the Project!

This page lists all available versions, including Windows 64 Bit, Mac, Linux, etc.

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

Think you will want version 6.12.33 64 bit for windows.

You might want to spend a little time looking at the rest of the BOINC website. There are some FAQ's, etc. Ther is a link at bottom of this download page that will take you to the main page. Or, after you install BOINC, there are menu options to take you to that page to select projects, etc.

choose your OS but I recommend avoiding the 6.13.X version as they are very beta

Are you certain that 6.13 is beta yet? Seems more like Alpha to me...

IIRC alpha releases are done so that a few people can test the app and its not released into the wild. Beta is released to the general public with the understanding that it is probably not ready for prime time. 6.13.XX fits the beta release type nicely. Though it is true that BOINC 6.13.XX is being tested by the alpha testers.
