Which as far as I know is a Seti Classic error and Seti Classic has been shut down since 2005. Seti runs through BOINC now, it can no longer be run through the stand-alone program. The servers that were used for that have been shut down, recycled into BOINC servers and even already been replaced by newer ones.

And no, Classic ain't coming back.
See Why classic SETI@home is closing down and other facts of life and SETI@home Classic: In Memoriam for more on that.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that in many ways, you can be considered an alien conspiracy!
