Web site upgrade
We changed the SETI@home web site to use Twitter Bootstrap, a CSS toolkit. This makes the site usable on small displays, and lets us use color schemes developed by other people (this one is called Darkly).

SETI@home Fall 2016 Fundraiser
The SETI@home Fall 2016 fundraiser has begun. If you haven't received your fundraising letter you can find it here.

The abundance of data has made our funding needs a little more demanding this year, so we're hoping you can help us out a bit more.

As always, thanks for running SETI@home
