I was a member of "Seti in Saskatchewan" way back in '99, and when I switched up to the new BOINC version, I never bothered re-joining the team thinking it would continue on automatically.

I was looking at the team statistics today and realised I am not showing as attached to this team any longer, and absolutely cannot find any way to re-attach my BOINC client to this team again.

I can log into my account, and I can search and find the team "Seti in Saskatchewan" but exactly how does one go about attaching a client to this team once again?

Figured it out finally; Seti@homes webpage is not firefox friendly I guess. Every time I would open a new page though my account in firefox it wold conisder me "logged out" in the new window; hence the no team "join" button available.

Quick login on IE fixed the problem.

Seti@home webpage is not firefox friendly I guess.

Not true - it's OK (stays logged in) in IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, ...

Check your Cookies permissions (do you accept Cookies from SETI@home?)

I've had no problems with Firefox or Chrome either.

The only time I have that symptom, cookies are disallowed for the project web site.
