Attention GPUUG Members and guests:
The site has gone through a large update to a new content management platform, has moved to a new server, and has been updated with new features, the most notable of which is the ability to make donations on the site.  We currently accept PayPal (you can even donate without a PayPal account using your credit card,) and will soon accept checks and are now accepting checks and money orders.  We also have plans to allow direct donations with your credit card not using PayPal sometime in the future.
