AFAIK, F@H has no tie whatsoever with BOINC.

The only worry is that Stanford also receives funding from NIH and NSF ... if one DCN (BOINC) stops receiving funding, other DCN programs may also be at risk.

Based on BOINCs forum post, their funding cuts may have stemmed from too many individuals being on the payroll who didn't necessarily participate in actual development, but TBH, I haven't had the time to dig into any reasoning behind the decision by NSF.

It's been know by BOINC the cuts were coming since April, but for some reason the organizers for BOINC haven't been able to talk about it until now.
