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.

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.
