Seti account issues

Here's the position I'm in. I signed up for Seti@Home in 2000. Well wouldn't you know after some time I forgot my password. Back then I was with @Home and I used my @Home email address to sign on with. Well over the years I've changed service providers a few times and the result is that my old email address is of course no longer valid. So now I'm in a potion where I don't know my password and my email address on file is invalid. However I can still get data units. What I would like to do is to register a new account and have the # of completed work units moved over to the new account, I'm guessing though this can't be done right?

Correct.
You can keep crunching under the @home addy, you just won't be able to change any of you account info. Or you could start a new account to start crunching under.

How many WUs do you have on your account?

Send a pm Smoke's way, maybe he still has a email address that can help.

Hey Locut0s!

PM Smoke, he'll provide you with the info to retrieve your old SETI password to be able to change you e-mail address to a new one! It can be done! ;)

Plz ask if you've got any more questions! :D
