Sorry to spam the donation threads but while going through some emails I came across another great opportunity to elicit acceptance of Bitcoins. Anyone familiar with the Seti@Home project knows that it is a distributed computing project aimed at finding 'intelligent' communications within radio waves observed in space. I sent them a request to accept bitcoins to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to encourage anyone else interested in this project or just into aiding the spread of awareness about Bitcoins to do the same.
Their email about the current donation campaign with some updates on the project can be found here; http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/donor_letter.php
I found this part here to be of interest; "We're also in the process of adding a new search algorithm to the SETI@home application. This new algorithm, called autocorrelation, will make us sensitive to certain broad band or spread spectrum transmissions without predicting their characteristics beforehand. No SETI sky survey has utilized this type of algorithm before."
They have also been able to utilize additional radio telescopes to explore areas of the sky that are not visible from the Arecibo telescope. " But in the coming year, we plan to start continuous collection of data at the Green Bank Telescope, allowing us to listen in on parts of the sky that, up until now, we have not been able to reach." Awesome stuff!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
