For those unaware, a key server related to SETI@home died & rendered SETI completely down for all intents & purposes (it was unable to generate new work).

I've been running Rosetta@home until SETI@home gets back to normal. It seems like even if I force Rosetta to stop downloading new tasks, it still won't download very many SETI work units. I haven't tried the above suggested steps - tho I am also not running an optimized SETI.

Which optimized SETI are you running?
