Hi everyone,

Might have my blinkers on and missed the printable versions somewhere, but I would love to be able to download, save and print versions of the 'seti@home' description and basically everything listed under the 'about' section. Being a bit of a newbie, I want to understand EVERYTHING and I would like some good old fashioned pen and paper in front of me. I am more than happy to create these documents and upload them to you guys at BOINC in a PDF format. I am a transcriptionist and typist with my own business afterall!

That would be fantastic!!!

Cheers,

Michah

As far as I know, everything about SEII is only available in HTML.

Acrobat can create a reasonable facsimile of any web page in the form of a (searchable) PDF; I wouldn’t be surprised if there are several other programs that can do the same.

Thanks for your replies.

I was just thinking in terms of 'ease of use' for people who struggle to read large volumes off a computer screen. A link at the top of the web pages for printer friendly versions would not have any images or logos (other than the seti@home logo) included in the documents. Saves ink if anyone wants to print it out and the user can refer to images and statistics on the web pages.

BOINC's legal position can be stated at the bottom of printable documents to ensure that their intellectual, technical and physical property is protected.

I am willing to do it for free, if the BOINC team think it will help.

Cheers,

Michah
