SETI @ Home Offline Due to Power Failure

Hello Everyone:

I wanted to briefly inform interested parties about the current SETI at Home outage.

The outage occurred on Monday night due to unknown reasons.  The service should be restored Thursday afternoon this week.  It's currently unclear when the project will come back online.  We'll keep everyone updated to any changes.

Hello Everyone:

As tradition dictates, here's an update on what we're up to:

ASUS 24" LCD Monitor campaign - Thank you!

I wanted to offer a warm "Thank You!" to all who donated to the 24" monitor campaign.  You all made short work of it and the folks at Seti@Home will really appreciate them.

Thanks again and watch the Purchases page for the items as they make their way to the S@H offices.
