Possibly - it is possible to leave a single computer attached, but with a very low resource share then BOINC will check back at fairly long intervals. Then when SETI reappears you should suddenly find a few tasks heading your way.

@Rob: Thanks for the idea. I was kind of hoping there might be a forum thread to subscribe to, a kind of sleeper cell that will activate when SETI awakes again.
I'm also wondering if my SETI stats will disappear if I detach. I guess I'll just have to try and see.

As far as I can tell there are no directly similar projects.

There are space/astronomy/physics projects (einstein@home, universe@home, milkyway@home, cosmology@home, etc) as well as several Covd19-related projects (Rosetta@Home, World Community Grid, Gpugrid?)

Nothing that would catch the imagination the way Seti@Home did.

Do we know when Seti@home could be running once again?
