It's been quite a while since I was last participating in SETI@home. I thought I'd like to come back and contribute computing power once again, but when I opened the BOINC Manager, I received a message that no work was available to process. I'm a little confused. Is there something else I need to do at my end to get something going, or is there really a shortage?
Thank you in advance for your response(s).

Currently you appear to have 22 tasks waiting to run. It might be these are "ghost" tasks, that were sent, but you have not received them, or they have been removed by your anti-virus software, or they are just waiting to run....
Let's see if we can do a bit of diagnostics, first let's see if you have those tasks on your computer:
Open the "advanced" view in BOINC you will see a number tags, open the "tasks" tab and see what is hiding there - this tab has the advantage in that you can watch the progress of a task to make sure it is running, and what the current "guess" at time left is (don't be alarmed, initially these guesses are way too large, they will improve over time).
