Seeing as someone woke up another thread, this one woke up as well.

Jord, are you supplying the booze for the celebration or is it "Duch date style" (BYOB)?

This isn't my celebratory sign, it's something I found in Cyberpunk 2077 😂

Lol. I don't think that is the 10 Downing Street location he had in mind.

I would say the SETI project volunteer computing as we knew it has a greater chance of NOT returning.

Have not seen anything from D. A. or Berkeley that might hint at a return in the future.

No, but certainly recent threads from Eric, hinting at total shutdown of the project for good.

I wonder how much longer they will keep the Seti Forums web server running?
If they decide to pull the plug on that I would hope they offer to allow us to download the messages.
There is a ton of useful, historical BOINC information contained in the Forums, especially Number Crunching.

Let's wake up this thread, it was locked already, can't have that. Less than 50 posts to go to the magic 10,000 posts.

I do wake it up with bad news though: https://boingboing.net/2022/10/17/arecibo-telescope-wont-be-rebuilt.html
The Arecibo radio telescope, damaged by falling cables then polished off by a platform collapse, will not be rebuilt. Though it was officially decommissioned and demolished after the incidents, which followed years of underinvestment, astronomers held out hope for a new installation built from scratch.

It's not enough to rebuild it, it must be funded and maintained for decades and it must be useful, and there are many other sites in operation now. Here's the detailed proposal for rebuilding submitted by scientists.

The new plan, to build a $5m museum on the site instead, sounds like a great reason to visit Puerto Rico.

Yes it would be a shame to not make the magic number. It is rumored something will happen when that happens. What no one knows.
