Uhm...i'm a little confused now.

11%..2.5%...Yes...No...

How many from our Donations gets SETI@home? 89% or 97.5%

I believe the 11% that the campus takes from the donations is correct.

And quite a bargain at that......
It would cost significantly more if the project had to front all of the costs they incur up front. Much more.

Make sure to direct your Gift to go to SETI or it goes into the general college fund to be divided equally between Departments if I remember correctly.

Thank you Francis.

Has anyone got a total lately? We've got to be way up there! Great job everybody.

Ok, according to my very weak math skills I figured $11,820.00. That's fantastic!

That sounds like the credit card merchant fee!

Are you sure the person you talked to actually understood your question?


Here is exactly what I was told by someone at the Gifts Administration Help Desk:

2.5% of any gift given to the SETI program is taken out as a gift fee. Those fees do go back to SETI, however, to help administer and run their program. So, on a $20 gift, there would be a 50 cent gift fee.


Seems pretty forthright to me...I'll callback next week and confirm

At the risk of hi-jacking Mark's thread, every penny helps... even $5 helps the bottom line.

Thank you very much for your donation.

This will mean that they can hopefully get 2 decently specced servers to replace the less reliable ones.

There are ongoing discussions with server manufacturers about this.

It may even mean that they won't have to have the three day-shutdown to process the database results, but that will have to be a wait-and-see at the moment.

Giz.

Total comes to $12,050. Total from the donation history page (dating to Oct. 6th) is $14,257.55, for a difference of $2,207.55. Looks like there was another donation made for $25.55 that wasn't mentioned here (which is perfectly fine). Thank you everyone for your generosity. It looks like Oscar will be getting a sibling for the holidays (I hope that's all he ever wanted). :-)

A little bird told the kitties that Oscar was actually ordered this week. Takes campus purchasing a week or so to process the paperwork and cut the purchase order, and then delivery time from the vendor, etc..

Not sure what the final specs as ordered were decided on.
