Please see the thread in News... we're bringing a third data source (Parkes) online for Breakthrough Listen data... donations will be matched 5x!

So this is a great time to get that green star you always wanted but were putting off. :^) There will also be special forum/profile icons for donations at the $75 and $250 level.

For anyone either having issues donating, or wanting to donate via PayPal, you can donate through GPUUG (GPU Users' Group). This will be tax-deductible for U.S. donors, but not for donors elsewhere.

Note as always for GPUUG donations that they are transferred to SETI@Home at the beginning of the following month so it may take a while for your star or other icon to appear.

And the kitties are in.
Waiting for that nifty new icon!
Meow!

Have made friends here.
Most were cats.

Cute, but the single spinner reminds me a record player, ;~).

And which record? Why, a record-breaking fundraiser! :^)

Mirrored from the news thread:

The response has been amazing! We've already reached our goal for the fundraiser and a bit more, and we reached the limits to which the donors have agreed to match. Any further matching of donations is up to them. If you didn't get a chance to get your special disk drive or GPU icon, we'll keep that open for donations that come in until 8am Pacific Time (1600 UTC) on Monday.

Oh, poop. I was considering going for a hard drive.
