The day I can be found on Mybook, Twatter, FaceSpace or whatever else there is still to come, I'll ask to be certified.

Many project admins can't even be bothered to keep users informed via the website front page news or the forum, do you seriously think they'd use twitter?

may be nic, but you never know... but i'm just saying, twitter/face/my are ways to get the word out... and expand the boinc community.

I recommend Secunia PSI: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/

Have you checked out what GridRepublic is doing? I have been working with them on many fronts to help raise volunteer computing to the public view and inspire their interest and participation.

Check out the Advocacy section in the GridRepublic community section: Here

I think they'd be charmed by a serenade, but SETI is (currently) online even without your singing for them. ;-)

And what has your question to do with the thread topic and subforum you posted in?
