Due to overwhelming response in PM's and private emails (approximately 50 in less than 24 hours)-I am announcing Blurf's 5-Day Seti Donation Challenge!!!

We've seen a lot of difficulties lately where it's definitely possible that the addition of a staff member could've helped get the servers back up with less of a delay.

Over the weekend we did $5,900 in donations and I think we can do better!

I am putting up another $25 to be donated--If we reach $7500 in new donations, I'll make it $50.

If you are willing to match my donation, please post your name here on and list the amount if you wish.

**Here is a link to the Donation Methods Page **

If you do not wish or unable to that is absolutely fine-there will be no criticism of non-donors in this Challenge thread.

This thread is not meant to spotlight anyone unless they wish to participate.

It will be locked Friday night 8/22 when I leave work at 11pm EST.

Thank you for your interest and support to the program.

Well, I'm in, but I'm waiting for the Assistant Manager of Gift Administration's reply as I requested information on donation by wire transfer (it's the only payment method I'm familiar with)

Blurf, I see you are doing a fine job here. It's all yours now.

Alas, my latest US$ 50 monthly donation is back from August the 2'nd, so it won't count in this challenge. I'm afraid it will be my last donation for now...

Unfortunately I was not able to make my donation on Monday as I promised in 3 day challenge. My bank doesn't allow to pay wint my current credit card on internet. I have to pay a visit to their local office and order a special internet enabled card. At least its free of charge. As soon as I receive it, I send those promised $100.
