Not certain about how to bring this up, but...
I did directly-give to SETI earlier this year!
Perhaps then, foolishly (?), I decided to directly support GPUUG and all of its aims to the combined-total of ~$1000.00/year...hopefully that decision was not erroneous!
Was I mistaken?
Time, alone, will tell!
In many ways, I'd prefer to see my money directed to specifics, but I must question just what a smallish-group of 80 (last count) members can ultimately-accomplish.
In the meantime, I find it hard to navigate this site, especially without many forums to respond-to...and I mean no disrespect to those who worked so hard to bring this board to fruiition!
