Greetings! I am reinstalling Bionic and Seti@Home on a new computer. I was able to rejoin all my other projects, but for more than a week I have been getting an error every time I try to rejoin the SETI project. I pick it from the list, it says communicating with the project, then I get the temporarily unavailable message. My internet connection is fine and all other projects rejoined with no issue. Any ideas? Thanks a ton!

How exactly are you "trying to rejoin" the project?
The simplest is to open the BOINC manager, go to the "tools" tab, use the "add a project" option, scroll down the list and find SETI, finally use the "returning user" option enter your email address and SETI password.

This is how I was trying for over a week. It just kept telling me the project was unavailable. Today, it magically worked! Thanks everyone, back to crunching numbers!
