I saw on Facebook reports that seti@home is closing down all operations. I hope this isn't true.

Doing a site search for SETI, I find a single report dated March 4, 2020 at 12:38 pm - a fairly standard journalistic rehash (with the usual cub reporter errors) of the original announcement here.

Hardly the scoop of the century.

They've ripped out all the fittings, moved walls, added a big bit on the back. I think the only that they've got left of the old kitchen is the coffee machine....
