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 and if you still need more information, ask about it on their forums.

Used to be a single voice that vanished in a crowd. Vague just like a distant sun when hidden by the clouds.
Found a way to surface and to speak my truth aloud. Be powerful. Stand fast and proud.
