I found a link to join beta testing for Seti. Got myself registered using the same e-mail I use here.

What is not clear is how to get into the Bonic client and hook up to the beta-testing project. I can't find the Seti beta testing project.

So I am clearly missing something. I can't tell if my machines are registered to pickup Beta tests or not.

thanks,
Tom

You will need to add the project to BOINC. Go to tools on your pull down and click on add project. Scroll down to Seti@home, when you click on Seti it adds the URL to the right side of the page. What I do is add a "/beta" to the end of the url, minus the " " and it connects to it and asks if i'm a new user or current. It will then download the appropriate files to your computer.

Good luck

You just paste this as Project URL:
http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/

Thank you. That was what I needed to get "over the hump."
