Seti had a fund raiser to cover the cost of a server to store data from the Parkes radio telescope (approx. $34,000) and for a GPU development system (approx. $10,000). What was different about this one, apart from being for data from here in Australia, there were three donors who were matching/doubling any donations so only 1/6th of the amount needed to be reached. They hit the required target within 24 hours. I made a donation of course.

Einstein gravity wave work was split into Hi and Lo work units. The Hi ones use a fair bit of memory and were sent to fast hosts like my i7-6700's and the Lo went to slower hosts and use less memory. My Ryzen 1700's were considered as a slower hosts. Einstein finished processing all their Hi work so have now opened up the remaining Lo work units to all hosts. I've been crunching these overnight as my i7's can do them in 6-8 hours when running on all cores.
