I am a long time SETI cruncher (since 1999). In the last two years, though, I have been very sick with Leukemia and had several strokes resulting from the chemo therapy so I have a hard time remembering and difficulty with thought process. I have a new computer that I managed to get my old BOINC installed on (Luckily I had written down my login info!!) but I cant for the life of me get new work/tasks for SETI. It shows that I have SETI as my only project, I just cant get it to work. PLEASE, any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advance. Sincerely, JC

Welcome back, and there's no need to worry.

Staff have had some issues over the last few days with splitting new work. You might want to check the News forum here for additional details.

The problem is system wide, not just yours. It will clear itself over time, but you should expect lengthy delays. Just have patience.

Thanks alot, Gatekeeper. Thats a relief. I thought it was my system as, like I said, I just added BOINC to this new computer the same day I wrote the post seeking help. I should have known better and checked the SETI message board first! Oh well, I'll take your advise and wait. Thanks again. I am......
Sincerely,
JC

Good morning!
My name is Cri and I would like to help. I do not know HOW to be helpful, but I will learn if this will not require some cognitive Einstein capacities. So, this is what I can offer.
I live in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I am a teacher, I speak fluently Italian, Romanian and English and I work an average of 10 hours per day and in the morning my computer at home is not used. Talking about computer, I have a laptop – ASUS -, Skype, internet connection. What can I do to help SETI?
Thanks,
Cri

BOINC can be downloaded from http://boinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/download. Once that is done, you can attach to BOINC through the UI. Use the same email and password you used to log in here.
