All teams are now officially notified that the kitty farm is now up for auction.......

The highest bidder to the Seti coffers wins..I think TEAM.SETI has taken me for granted for too long.

I am at the bidder's mercy on this one.

I already notified TEAM.SETI that this was underway.

If they choose not to respond, that is their choice.

They had their due when kevint covered their ass.

And the team never repaid him, it seems.

Now it's YOUR turn.

Dude, start your own team. Half the avatars around the forums are of cats anyhow.

But that wouldn't add to the SETI coffers. The whole aim of Mark's exercise is to boost the income.

Point taken. But there are probably a few wealthy cats around here someplace.

I'll donate $75.00 to SETI if you join BOINC Synergy.

You'll also get the number one spot on our team for RAC and total credit.

Just one stipulation. You have to crunch for us for a minimum of three months.

Let me just say, that this is quite a good value. Not only did the Kittyman crunch for us well past his contractual date, he became a valuable participant in the team. Thanks Mark!

Mark

While the Title of the thread does not mention a Donation Credit Auction.

While I am unemployed (one of the several millions) I think that, if I bid a $400 donation (over the next 12 months) to seti it will allow me to turn off computers to reduce my electric bill, which makes it worth the bid.

I can "even" sell this to the wife.

Yes, I do know that it will cost you more in electrcity than I am spending.

If "Teams" do not jump all over this.... go figure

Regards

Seems thet my present team is not all 'jumpy' about this.....

Some seem a bit doubtful about my loyalties.......


But I have not jumped ship since my 'contract' ran out....have I?


I am not ready to jump ship just because of a few bad friends or an argument/


This is a commitment........

Not that I shouldn't be.......LOL.

I'm sure we can find you a nice padded room. Maybe even one with a scratching post :)

Is that a bid or just a comment (it contains both "if I bid" and "am spending")?

Thank you for the very nice endorsement.

I don't dislike SETI.USA....
Must make that VERY clear. You folks there have been very supportive, even when I have had some cloudy days.

Just time to change the litterbox.

Unless somebody wants to fill kevint's shoes and step up to the plate to keep me there....
But so far, they don't seem to be too worried about the kitties wandering off elsewhere.
