March 08, 2012 Update

Hello Everyone:

Heres a quick update on the current status of the project:

1. Both the Astropulse/NTPCKR and Download/Upload servers have been delivered to the SETI at Home offices.  If you'd like to see what we paid, check up on the tracking information and so forth, please visit www.gpuug.org/purchases. 

2. I'd like to point out proudly that both servers have been paid for in full thanks to the generosity of our donors.  You can track our expendatures by visiting both www.gpuug.org/purchases and www.gpuug.org/payments.

3. Per our policy we've sent out the monthly Direct to SETI at Home payment to the SETI at Home offices which should be delivered tomorrow.

4. We're narrowing down future projects to work on for SETI at Home.  I'll be posting a newsletter update once we hear back from the SETI team and concurrently, we will begin fundraising for these projects. 

5. If you would like to see a picture and read a bit more the JBOD and both new servers our donors have contributed to SETI at Home please visit http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=67190.  In the meantime here's a picture of forementioned hardware sitting on the SETI at Home tables where they are awaiting implementation. 

 

6. Lastly I would like to extend a warm thank you to our corporate sponsor NKOL www.nkol.net.  NKOL has gone out of its way to provide us cost + 10% pricing on these servers and even went so far as to ship these for us at a substantial discount.  Our collective hats are off to them for their overwhelming generosity.
