IBM World Community Grid celebrates 8 years of computing for humanitarian causes. Congratulations to WCG, which has also contributed greatly to the development of BOINC.

Little of topic but I would like to know how one would know if they received any kind of signal at all? If my computer were to pick up a signal of interest how would I even kniw? How does that work? I'm sure it would automaticly let BERKLEY/SETI know but how would I know? Thanks,

We're not Seti and this thread you're posting in is not about Seti, but about the World Community Grid, a whole different project. So you're not a little off topic, but quite a lot.

BOINC is just a managing program that allows you to run a lot of project's science applications simultaneously, not just Seti.

To get all the answers about your questions, start at http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_about.php and if you still need more information, ask about it on their forums.
