Number Crunchers will be excited by the new fundraiser just announced - preparing for our first opportunity to search the southern skies.

Please take a moment to pass by the front page, or visit the dedicated news thread, to read the full details.

Eric has very properly explained that my contribution to this fundraiser is in memory of my mother, Jenifer Leech (as she was known at the time of her death).

But I'm really commemorating the scientific work she published during her life, under her previous name of Jenifer Haselgrove. I posted some notes on her work a couple of years ago, here and here.

I think you have done your Mother proud, and her achievements should rightly be widely recognised.

Thank you for the links,

Very nice, Richard.
The kitties have joined in.

Meow.
A kitty keeps loneliness away.
More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.

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.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Before this drops off the first page, please note that we have now finished the special fundraiser with new icons and matching funds. The total raised by users was $24,731.03 in four days, plus (probably) checks wending their way in by snail mail. By the time we've totted up the match funds, the total will be some way north of $100,000 - well over twice the target. We'll announce the final amount in the News thread.

Many thanks to all who contributed -you were brilliant. We all look forward to crunching southern hemisphere data.

Many thanks to the "cash multipliers" that made the goal possible.
