Byron.......................

I would say for you to "Carry on at will". If you wish to donate in $20.00 donations 500 times who are we to complain? It is still a cash donation to the project which they desperately need. There is no need for you to appologize.

Memo to me: Use a little bit more Smilies if the semantics of your posts can be misunderstood (because of the lack of knowledge of the english language).

Helli wrote the following ....

May i ask what's the purpose of donating $1600 in $50-Pieces?
Looks for me like spaming this Thread.
Or is it a kind of DDOSing the Berkeleys Donation Office?
Nonetheless a lot of work for Uli...
Helli

Dear Helli
Dear Uli
Dear msattler .. (aka Mark)

I meant no harm ...
I very sorry ...
I do apologize ...

I extend to you all ...
my very Best Wishes

Byron

Byron, please do not misunderstand me at all.
I think what you are doing is wonderful.
You have simply chosen a unique way of doing it.

Do not stop on my behalf.

Best wishes,
Mark

Byron has my vote for awesome Juggernaut of the month. Byron should not be apologizing to us, we should be bowing to him!

By all means, carry on Byron. A bunch of small (and not so small) donations spend just as well as one large donation it is just curious as to why you don't combine a few of them. My guess is you may be donating for some of your teammates probably sending to you via paypal. That's just a guess though. Another guess is you are selling items either through Craig's list or Ebay and sending in the proceeds as you receive them. Again just a guess. Again, whatever the reason, don't let us stop you, it is a much needed and appreciated gesture on your part.


(And it gives us something to speculate about while we wait! :-) )

Exactly. I meant no ill will at all, just wondering what your method was. I wish I had the spare cash flow to donate, and am jealous of yours. Really it's no different than the mob each donating once or twice like this thread accomplished at the beginning.

Francis,
You might want to contact the gift admin as it said. They had a bit of trouble with the acknowledgment program earlier but the donations were getting through. If it is that problem again they will email you about it when they come in if you let them know.

Better late than never, eh?
Thanks for joining in.

Really, although we have achieved our largest goals in the purchase of the new servers, the need is ongoing.
Never too late to come to this party.

Waited to see if the card got billed....it did.
I recieved an e-mail from the Gift Administration the following day :


Thank you for your on-line gifts to SETI@Home dated yesterday, November 8, 2010. I was reviewing the gifts made yesterday and noticed that you had made two $20 gifts to SETI. It appears that you may have received an error message on one or both of these gifts.


They offered to credit one of the gifts if it was unintentional. I declined the refund. I also expressed thanks for the vigilance and quick action.

Go ahead and chalk me up for +40$ :D

I dedicate the duplicate 20 to Byron, because he deserves it.
