We've started our 2018 funding drive. Many of you have probably received our email penned by one of our undergraduate researchers. If you can't wait, you can read yours here.

Because we're not yet fully GDPR compliant, we're not sending emails to anyone with an EU/EAA email addresses, anyone who listed an EU/EAA country, or anyone who listed "International" as their country. And, of course, anyone who has opted out of our emails won't get them.

Thanks for your support!

Sabrina mentioned that

we were able to buy a server to handle the Breakthrough Listen data from the Parkes telescope.

The server Centurion handles the Green Bank Telescope data, do we know yet what the Parkes data server will be called?

This would be a good opportunity to prime the pump for a Gridcoin research economy. Please set up a wallet for the SETI project so that those of us with Gridcoin can donate crypto.

Our gridcoin wallet is listed on the donation page... SHJ1iGtngsrMNHXEc8K8J7yxqkaJ6og4du . My mining goes directly into it.

The server is named "amigos." It seemed appropriate since the bulk of the funding came from three people.

And as of today, https://www.gridcoinstats.eu/project doesn't show SETI@home as a whitelisted project. I assume it's a mistake because we have been continually generating credit and stats. If it continues I'll look into it.

Perhaps rather 2019 here instead, Eric, because for some reason, I could make it winter next year instead.

Possibly it became Divide and conquer here instead, for only a bottle of champagne.

Hi - I have an extra Nvidia graphics card but no computer to use it on. Is that something you would want at SETI to crunch data or would you rather I just sell it and donate the $?

Hallo,
ich helfe gerne wenn ich kann. Zur Zeit ist meine Leitung noch auf 16Mbit. Das ändert sich ab dem 09.12.2018,
denn dann bekomme ich eine 50Mbit Leitung und kann dann viel mehr Daten für Euch verarbeiten und vor allem auch viel schneller. Ich interessiere mich schon seit Jahren für das Universum und wie es funktioniert. Habe auch sehr schöne Bilder vom Universum. Es sieht einfach nur schön aus.

Mich würde interessieren, haben die Amerikaner denn nun bei Roswell ein Ufo gefunden und einen Überlebenden aus einer anderen Welt in die AREA 51 gebracht??? Man bedenke wie rasant es danach mit der Technik in vielen Gebieten gab. Medizin, Computer, Kommunikation, und vieles mehr. Und das in einem Affentempo!!!

Iris, thanks for your help. I'm sure your data transfer capability increase will be highly beneficial for many things, not only for SETI@home ! This message thread is not the best place for this topic, but although the Area 51 legends have proven to be myths, this heavily militarized base is still quite a fascinating thing of its own. And yes, we can only imagine the transformative power of detecting and decyphering the equivalent of a intergalactic encyclopedia !

(Google translate) Iris, Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe. Ich bin mir sicher, dass Ihre Datenübertragungsfunktion für viele Dinge von großem Nutzen ist, nicht nur für SETI@home! Dieser Nachrichten-Thread ist nicht der beste Ort für dieses Thema, aber obwohl sich die Legenden der Area 51 als Mythen erwiesen haben, ist diese stark militarisierte Basis immer noch faszinierend. Und ja, wir können uns nur die transformative Kraft vorstellen, das Äquivalent einer intergalaktischen Enzyklopädie zu entdecken und zu entschlüsseln!

(Google translate) Hello, I like to help when I can. At the moment my line is still at 16 Mbit. That changes from 09.12.2018, because then I get a 50 Mbit line and can process much more data for you and above all, much faster. I've been interested in the universe for years and how it works. Have also very nice pictures of the universe. It is absolutely fascinating. And I do not think we are alone in space. I would be interested, the Americans have now found a UFO at Roswell and brought a survivor from another world in the AREA 51? Think about how fast it was with technology in many areas. Medicine, computers, communication, and much more. And in a monkey pace !!!
