You have all been so fine.........
Wonderful friends to the project and myself too.
There is nothing I could say now that could express it fully.

Nothing.

But, I will try.

Thank you all so much for showing your appreciation of my efforts.
These are trying times for the project. Much pain has been shared by those who wish it to succeed. And much progress is being made.
If you all can hold on a little longer, you and I shall see a brighter day.

The kitties cannot thank you all enough. There are simply not words that I can post to express it.

Oh, you know me by now.....
I shame myself and it's all OK then.
You folks yank me back to reality time and time again.

Someone once told me to quit apologizing, because it didn't work anymore for them.
Surprisingly enough, it always works for me.

I put my money where my heart is. Here, and there.

Us lost souls gotta stick together, you see.

Oh, my........

I had not realized it got that high.

Another 6 grand in the Seti kibble bowl.

You should all be proud of your support for the project.

Indeed. Another round of green stars for everybody.

If they need to pull a matching set of servers out of this..
Well that is going to be up to the big kids in the lab...

But if I was approaching it I would look at a 2 socket motherboards, with a single 6 core xeon equipped (each).. maybe 16-32G memory equipped.. and
we could see about beefing them up later.

Also if they can port some of their applications to FERMI... well there could be some MAJOR boosts to server power as well for much cheaper.

We are no where near the point of "order whatever you need". But I am sure it will be a big help. I dunno what all 3 fund drives add up to, but it should be well over 20K.

you know, as much as I've bitched to myself recently about all the trials and tribulations going on with lack of uptime, etc (no need to rehash), I've realized that I'm part of the problem by not contributing. So ...
