    It's still going. I am using it and their BOINC manager. So any of you going to join and let your PC process in the background?

    From Rev's link:

    But like the Stern show, SETI@Home will live on in another form. The project is being moved to the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), an open-source grid project using the same principles as the original project. BOINC will continue the search for E.T. radio signals, but a new client also allows users to devote spare CPU power for other research projects, such as climate change, astronomy, and curing human diseases.

    With the BOINC software you can run multiple computational services at once and devote time for everything from SETI to helping to cure disease and even predicting climate change.

    But if you're spare PC clock cycles are not worth it, I understand.
