Hi to all

Sorry in front to my bad english wrote becouse i´m from Austria.
I will let you know that by us there are so many people that havent a credit card or won´t get one becouse our banks are not so frindly as yours. So we in Ausria make the moste thinks like billing in internet wih paypal or with paysafe cards.

For me personaly i don´t whant a credit card becouse i know what you can make with it and i think everybody tell´s me i´m right when i say that you don´t have an overview of the paymants you make with it.

Here in Europe we also don´t have that mutch problem with kredit card holdern that can´t pay the bill´s like you in USA and some other countrys.

That´s what i wan´t to say to this problem about paypal

If paypal will work i´ll donate but i don´t what to make a credit card only for donate the projekt.

MFG smilie

OH, I am fully prepared for the first crash and round of 'I told ya so's'.

I shall not be deterred if and when the first bomb drops.

It will. Nothing goes off as planned....and there must be a THOUSAND little tweaks to the OSs and settings that will not be anticipated.

I fully expect growing pains.

I hope that you all do realize that too, if it comes to pass.

Please anticipate them, and give the boyz the grace to recover when they do occur.

What's the phrase......IT guys will know.....

'Coming up from stone cold.....or something like that
Dead steel? Box of rocks? Picking up the grapefruit?

Whatever.......Carolyn is a fine name, but I shall nickname her Carrie.

I hope she does not live up to the moniker.


Cats.....what more does one need?

"Cold Iron" is the term we used on the boats.
Start-up from Cold Iron is a slow, careful procedure that normally takes several hours. Heat up and pressurize too fast, you risk a thermal stress crack or pipe rupture - very messy, ruin your whole day.

Like you, I have faith that the guys will bring Oscar and Carolyn up with all deliberate speed, but also as carefully as they need to, watching for problems as they go.

And when they are ready for full duty, we will be ready and waiting for the fun to begin again.

For those still saying PayPal or nothing, please understand SETI is a tiny fraction of the University of California at Berkeley. Some info on them below. No matter the noise here it won't be heard upstairs, because assemblymen and senators don't read these boards. If PayPal is you only option please send uli the cash donation specialist a Private Message. She has ways outside official channels, but you do have to trust her.

If you really want to have PayPal, you will need to petition the Legislature of the State of California to enact laws that permit the Regents of the University of California to accept PayPal. Otherwise it can't happen. Yes, it really is in the laws of California that prevent it.

http://berkeley.edu/about/fact.shtml

Campus budget & finances

Revenues: $1.809 billion in 2008-09
Funding sources, 2008-2009 (includes state research funds):
State funds: 28%
Tuition & fees: 20%
Federal research: 19%
Private: 18%
Other: 15%
Local: 1%
Sources of private funds, 2008-09:
Alumni, parents & friends: 43%
Foundations: 38%
Corporations: 15%
Other sources: 4%
Market value of endowment: $2.3 billion (June 2009).
Philanthropic support: The state supplied 47% of the University's budget in 1991-92 and today its contribution comes to 28%. Private support is increasingly critical to preserving Berkeley's excellence. Alumni, parents, and friends of the campus contributed $313.1 million in gifts and pledges in the 2009-10 fiscal year to support students, faculty, and research. There were 83,159 gifts and pledges from donors.


SETI@Home's budget isn't even a round off of the total budget for the University. SETI simply doesn't have the clout to make enough noise to be heard.

Thanks.......the was the term I was looking for.

Cold Iron.

I happen to know the term and it's implications.

Starting up the Frozen 920 rig is something akin to that.
If I don't do everything in the right order........it just ain't gonna happen.
She needs to be massaged a little bit........

Let her warm up just a little......maybe 60c.....then turn on the chiller and bring her down to minus 30.

It only works in a certain order.

If the Admins at Seti trust me and think you all can too.

:) That is one way. Just not via moi. At least not until I have been given the ok.
Don't want to step on the toes of Berkeley.

Neat thoughts, I think I would be able to route Gold coins, stamps, etc pp in the right direction.

Just think of it this way...

Under the "contract" to accept funds via PayPal you agree to allow PayPal to access your account and extract any deposits in the amount that the person paying the money to you contests. This "extraction" of money happens as soon as the person contests the payment and without your approval (you are notified after the fact). In order to get the funds back you have to satisfy PayPal that the claim is not valid.

Most people using PayPal to receive funds establish a separate bank account and check it often for received funds. They immediately transfer those funds to another account which is not accessible to PayPal.

You could donate by different ways:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_donate.php

Inter alia:


  • We can also accept gifts by wire transfer. Please contact the Assistant Manager of Gift Administration at 510-643-1372 or by email for instructions on how to make a wire transfer.



'Wire transfer' is by/with a bank account, or not?
So everybody could donate..

They are working on it, and getting closer by the day.
But, if you read Matt's last tech post in this forum, it sounds like we may be stuffed with turkey before the crunchers get stuffed with new work.
I have picked up a few resends on the couple of rigs I have kept running, but very few and far between.
