On December 15, 2005,
after 6 years of operation, this project will shut down. But SETI@home is
not going away. We're alive and well and running on the BOINC distributed computing
platform. It's easy to switch over - just follow the instructions on the new SETI@home web site.
We hope to see everyone there!
At the time of shutdown, the stats for this project will be frozen but
will continue to be available on the web.
Thanks to all original SETI@home participants for their tremendous
dedication to the project. You made SETI@home into something of lasting

We're now fully back on-line. More
information about recent outages can be found in Technical news
(on the new SETI@home page).
Our Internet link through Cogent went down at around
midnight UTC on March 18/19. It is still being looked at by Cogent. In the
meantime, data service (upload/download) is unavailable. We do not yet
have a projected time to fix - it could be a couple of days.

Outage Update: We are back up and running full time, and We have
enough battery backup in place to keep our servers running 24/7 until the
power problems are diagnosed and fixed.

Around 18:00 UTC we had another
unexpected lab-wide power outage. We are survey the damage and slowly
bringing up various systems one by one.
February 24, 2005
UPDATE (21:00 UTC): The
database/data servers are mostly back on line and catching up from the
long outage. Yesterday afternoon a breaker blew and power for the entire
lab went down. We came back on-line three hours later, but due to servers
shutting down ungracefully we had to check every table in every database.
This process took all evening and continued well into the next morning.

Early this morning campus got a call
from SANS that our web site (this page) appeared to be hijacked. At that
point campus (rightly so) blocked access to our site at the campus router.
As it turns out though, we were not hijacked at all. Our nightly front
page regen script had malfunctioned and produced a truncated page. This is
