Message 1040897 - Posted: 11 Oct 2010, 2:04:39 UTC

I was about ready to stop Seti crunching and move on to more reliable BOINC projects but this drive made me feel that things can and will get better. So I figured I might as well donate something to help it along. Not much but hopefully it helps.

Thank you for your gift of $25.00 via Visa on 10/10/2010.
Your gift was assigned to the following areas:

SETI@home - $25.00

Your confirmation number is:

Not sure if this zero-cost solution has been considered before ...

It seems clear that many Teams are associated with commercial interests.

Many commercial interests are simply testbeds and are given hardware for evaluation.

Ergo there must be much "stuff" out there that is:-

a) free
b) cutting-edge
c) hardly used
d) discarded after the next magazine issue etc, etc

Put another way ... heads-up to reality to prevent people spending money unnecessarily.

I donated the other evening (Friday?) while the thread was locked, so don't have my confirmation number now, but there's $10 coming.

The problem is that all donations need to be approved by Berkeley first, and they take their cut of all donations, including the ones given by everyone here.

Far easier to come up with the cold, hard cash than it is to dance with the red tape at the University.

Need to get the green star back ;) so from me and 'she who must be obeyed', here's:

SETI@home - $2,175.00

Your confirmation number is:

(by my calculations should take us to at least $10000 in this drive)

I can't confirm this. No Problems here with the Donation Page.

[edit]
I have to accept a new Certificate.
Maybe your Browser have stored an old one?

The technical details indicate that "The certificate expired on 10/11/2010 02:59 AM." (today). Probably the staff of berkeley.edu has not renewed the certificate in time. Call them, better to fix this issue for many people not agreeing to use "Add Exception" button.

Before everyone emails the admins on this certificate expiration, I've already done so.

Whoa,
A battle of the big guns. Thank you MarkJ and ShEm for your very generous donations. Things like that are really great to wake up to. Also thanks to all the rest who have donated what they could to make this work. :-)

Much appreciation is due to all contributors, both large and small.
You have all done the kittyman proud.

For some of us here in the States, it's a Holiday (Columbus Day/Discoverer's Day). Many of us have the day off work, so we sleep late.
