03/12/2011 Update

Salutations everyone,

Here's our weekend update with a bit of news:

1. We've created a new easy to use feature on our website where members can donate hardware directly to SETI at Home. An added benefit of donating through the GPU Users Group Inc. is that in accordance with US tax law, hardware donations to us are tax deductible on your federal income taxes. We will generate a receipt to you and yours via email upon receipt of said hardware which you may use as documentation on your taxes.

Currently we only have one item (2 or 3TB SATA hard drives) but will be adding more next week. If you're interested please check out the new feature at http://www.gpuug.org/donatehardware

2. We've ordered 6 3TB hard drives for Astropulse transportation for SETI at Home. We'll be following up with tracking information once we receive it, pictures and so forth.  You can track this order here at www.gpuug.org/purchases

3. Here's where we stand on our two current projects:

Dedicated Astropulse Server: Raised: $2,643.00 / Goal: $ 9,577 $6,934 to go
Hard Drives for Oscar's Raid Array: Raised: $2,454.00 / Goal: $ 6,433 $3,979 to go

Please consider making a donation if you'd like in order for us to help SETI at Home prosper.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.


Brad Deauman - Executive Director GPU Users Group Inc.
