|SETI@home is a scientific experiment that
harnesses the power of hundreds of thousands of
Internet-connected computers in the Search for
Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). You can participate by
running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio
telescope data. There's a small but captivating possibility
that your computer will detect the faint murmur of a
civilization beyond Earth. ||

- CONNECTION PROBLEMS FROM SOME UK ISPs: Several ISPs in the
.uk domain have installed transparent proxies that do not support
SETI@home communication protocols. If you are having problems connecting
from a .uk domain, contact your ISP and request that they add an HTTP
bypass for the server shserver.ssl.berkeley.edu, or that they provide
you with an address and port number for their proxy. We will be
addressing the problem of non-compliant transparent proxies in the next
- UNAUTHORIZED PATCHES TO CLIENT: It has come to our attention
that some users are distributing unauthorized patches to the SETI@home
client. We cannot verify that these patches function properly and are
virus free. It is very important to the science of SETI@home that you
run only the unmodified SETI@home program.
