I think they must be running the projects separately. The BBC is more of 
a short term one designed to wind up in May with the option of carrying 
on. The one you've set up is the one I recognise from some time back 
when I used to run it. I have to say the 'original' project is a bit 
better organised than the BBC site. I'm currently having overnight 
system hangs with Windows XP (as if it needed any help) and I've a 
feeling it's something to do with the BBC software I installed on it to 
get the climate change project running.

I'm in two minds about it at the moment. I've just lost tbird4, my 
kitchen PC, an Athlon that was fine until running the project. I saw a 
note on one of the BBC message boards saying that it shouldn't be run on 
a laptop (not that tbird4 was a laptop) but I'm beginning to harbour 
suspicions of software that maxes out your PC 24/7. I'm now pretty sure 
that it was BOINC that stuffed my old Vaio, the one I gave to Richard.
