SETI has not yet found aliens

I've been getting email that SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, will make a big announcement tomorrow, and rumors are flying that they got a detection. I happen to know some folks there, and they assure me that this is not the case. There will be an announcement, but it's not about aliens. Sorry to disappoint. The announcement is embargoed, meaning they want all news outlets to release the news at the same time, so I can't talk about it until tomorrow. :-)
