    I added additional info in the first post about app_config changes due to them phasing out v7 work units and going to v8.

    Astropulse has also been updated and the current version is now v7. Might want to add that one to your first post, as well.

    Special Fundraiser for Parkes Data Store and GPU development system
    Thanks to our collaboration with Breakthrough Listen and their international colleagues, we will soon have the ability to access data recorded at the Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia. For the first time, this will give us full-sky coverage, including the southern hemisphere, in our search for ET. However, due to the enormous amount of data that the 13-beam receiver at Parkes can generate, we will require extra hardware to store and distribute it. We need your help to purchase this.

    Thanks to some special offers, one from the Hanson family in memory of Robert W. & Mary P. Hanson, one from Richard Haselgrove in memory of his mother, Jenifer Leech, and one from Mr. Kevvy, we have the possibility to match donations which will allow us to purchase the Parkes Data store server (~$34K) and the GPU development systems (~$10K) we will need for the coming year. For every dollar you donate in this special fund raiser, Mr. Kevvy will match it, the Hanson Family will match it with two, and Richard Haselgrove will match it with two more. That means for every dollar you donate we'll get six dollars towards the purchase of these servers!

    Because this is a special fundraiser we'll have special notation on your account page and on the forums. The 12TB disk drives in the Parkes Data Store cost $450. One sixth of that is $75. So, a donation of $75 or more gets you a disk drive icon. The GPUs in the GPU development machine that we will be using for our recording systems at future telescopes are $1500 each, so a donation of $250 or more will get you a GPU icon. And as always, any donation of $10 or more will get you a green star.

    But in the end, it's not about the icons: it's about getting the data and making a discovery for the ages. Your help, whether by crunching data or by donating, is always appreciated.

    I'm switched over to the WCG Christmas race till the end of the month. It is loaded with worthy bioscience projects and [H]ardOCP is in a tight race with team China. I will be back in the new year.

    Anyone have any idea what’s going on with the SETI Beta stats exporting? I recently crunched a few hundred thousand points there, but none of the stats sites reflect this. I know this was a problem with them a few years ago... Is it still?

    I found a thread on the SETI Beta boards that said there hasn’t been a stats export since 7/18. No response from the admins yet.
