I'm trying to add another $75 to the pot, but am running into problems! I'm getting a:

Variable CURREFERENCENO is undefined.

error at the receive gift receipt stage. There is also a message that I should not re-submit my gift!! Where do I go from here - any suggestions?

I guess I would just hold tight.....
I'll see if I can figure out who to contact on the problem.

Just called the number, and it goes through to UCB. I guess my $75 will have to wait 'till 9AM Monday, UCB time (I was hoping the number would go through to Amex)! Still, I'm off work tomorrow, so I'll attend to it then and then post back confirmation.

Unless the receipt email is masquerading as an email offerring 'Mens Medication' or 'Genuine Rolex watches' it didn't go through. I'm sure it'll be sorted tomorrow.

Rest assured, no donations proffered in this thread will be used for Men's Medications. Although some of us might get a rise outta what this new server is becoming and the promise it holds for Seti.

Well done, mate!!

I must admit, the generosity shown on this current fund drive is really surprising me.
I guess it helps when folks know a bit about where the funds are meant to be used.....namely for hardware that all of us know the project needs to remain viable.

As Oscar was once a most wonderful kitty......
Oscar the server should be a wonder as well.

Thank you, Terror.

Tom

Thank you, Tom for your generous donation.

And thank you for saying that I have done a great job here......

BUT....

I must say that it is not I who have done a great job here, it is all of you who have responded to my requests. Sure, I have put up some kibble of my own, but I am one, you are many. And you have all together done so much more for the project than I could have done by myself.

Many donations, some large and some small, have added up to an enviable sum for the new server.

I would venture to say that few projects in the Boinc network could muster such a display of hard support in such a small time for their chosen project.

Well, your first Donation Race had a very high Limit. Only a few People could/wanted to follow you.

Your second try is more Money Bag friendly. ;-)

Thank you Donald....or may I call you Don?
I have a dear old uncle named Don that was very generous to me in my days as a pup......bought me hundreds of classical music LPs that gave me a love of music that I enjoy to this day. He is still alive and I call him now and again to thank him in his latter years.

Thanks for sharing your plunder with Seti.
