Okay then Claggy, with yours and Wendy's we are now up to $7690. This is unbelievable!!! Great work everyone!!!

It is truly almost unbelievable to Me, Msattler has amassed a bit of an Army to come to Seti's Rescue.

Message 1040637 - Posted: 10 Oct 2010, 15:38:32 UTC

I have just posted this on "Stargazers Lounge", the biggest Astronomy Forum in the UK.

Dear All,

SETI@Home is going through a difficult time at the moment. A Server has died and we are trying to raise some cash to replace it.

There is an SGL team on SETI@Home and we all crunch data to help the project.

Having just got back from the Kielder Star party and donated $25 to the Emergency Appeal, I thought that other SGL Team members might want to help out with $5-$10. It is only a couple of beers, or a tiny bit of kit from the vendors at Kielder, but will help keep the project going.

If you can't, then that is okay, but please keep supporting the project by crunching.

MODS - if you feel this post in inappropriate, please delete it (but I hope that you don't, as the SGL Team and others need to give help to this project).

Cheers

Tom


Let'shope that someone steps up to the plate (and that I don;t get banned from SGL Forum). This Astro Forum has over 2000 active members, so perhaps we will get a donation or at least a new "cruncher"

It seems that I just have to beat the naysayers down.

When the project crashes, it just brings out so many negative folks.
Their comments hurt me personally.....although they are not shot at me directly.

The recent response to my pleas has been just overwhelming.

Restores my faith. It really does.

Thanks Albireo,
Here's hoping we hear from some of them. New people are always welcome.( Just some friendly encouragement is fine if they can't donate.)

Ok now for some stats and rules.

So far we have collected $7.080.
We have a total of 63 Donors so far.
We may have up to 30 new stars shining soon.
We have 30 repeat donors and yet my math doesn't add up. Wow now I am off by three. I guess it is time to power up the printer and do a line by line audit, unless someone can spot my mistake.

So...You may have posted your donation here, but wish not to show your star here, please let me know, because once the feature is turned on again, I want to make sure, your star shines.

Now the rules part. Only post your donations and kudos. Anything off topic including more music links etc will be hidden as soon as a Mod comes across it.
There is nothing wrong with also alerting the Cafe Visitors to the drive and you can get more off topic there.

Nuff said.
Once again, great Job Mark for starting another drive and all that have contributed
If you have issues with regards to the donation methods, Please send me a PM I am quite creative in order to help you. And yes it is only via trusted ways.

To answer a question, the color green just let's you know of multiple donation and the blue goes to our champ MarkJ. Someone down under, please give that man a pat on the back.

OH, please the keep the corrections coming, I am only human and it is ok to post them here.


I had donated $20 before and had a green star, Do I qualify for my name to be in green? I only ask this with tongue firmly in cheek, to me it does not really matter, only the support of the cause.

Alert There may not be an update tomorrow. I have an evening class and I might be very tired.

@Albireo380 What you posted on that message board is great. Just one small correction. The minimum donation for Seti is $10.

I wasn't going to argue about it.....but I did, apparently the system took it.

Uli could be right, I do recall some mention of a minimum somewhere.

I don't know what the discrepancy is.....and it is really not an issue...I don't see too many seeking to donate $10.00 or less here.

Well yes it says minimum $10 on the donation page, maybe it's due to fees or something.
