SETI@home volunteer parent and child in SF Bay area wanted for TV interview.
We have been approached by the producer of a Japanese television documentary about SETI which will feature SETI@home. They are hoping to interview some SETI@home volunteers in early February in the bay area. If possible they would like to interview a parent and young child who are both excited about science and SETI. If that describes you and you are willing to be interviewed, please contact me either by private message or by email ( korpela at ssl.berkeley.edu ).

New SETI@home donation project on Bitcoin Utopia
We've started a new mining effort on Bitcoin Utopia. If you've got mining equipment and want to help out, please join the effort.
The ~5 bitcoins that were donated last year went primarily to buying replacement hard drives. With the number of drives we have running we lose quite a few over the course of a year. It was nice not to need to dip into cash to replace them.

Problems with centurion
We're having some problems with centurion, the computer holds the Breakthrough Listen data and does our Breakthrough Listen splitting. Correction will probably require an OS upgrade.
Because of this GBT data will be scarce over the weekend.

Web site upgrade
We changed the SETI@home web site to use Twitter Bootstrap, a CSS toolkit. This makes the site usable on small displays, and lets us use color schemes developed by other people (this one is called Darkly).
