If you visit http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/beta/ , it looks like one of those test project that pop up out there in the wild (XXX, YYY). If you try to login it takes you to: https://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta//login_form.php?next_url= (if you're already logged in, but the URL should be about the same even if you're not.

Actually, it seems like all the links will take you to the proper https://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/ site (I haven't tested every link but the few I did takes you the proper page.)

I believe if you just redirect to the newer site that would take care of things of nicely. The only reason I'm going to that page is that the BOINC config for SETI Beta takes you there. ;)

Best,

I think the page has been like that since the design overhaul. Not a huge deal since this project is to test the apps before they go live on the main project.
Last time I checked setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu, setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu, and setiathome.berkeley.edu could be used interchangeably.
