I'll wait for for the official words of our treasurer, but I am guessing the latest figure is our final figure:

preliminary final count: aprox. $ 2,538 (€ 1,835)

I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of S@NL and the S@H team of Berkeley to all donors, in special to those that are not a member of S@NL.

Uli will be getting our "sponsor list" so that we can enjoy our little green star here also and warble with the good deed we've done ;)

[update]
I just red that he'll be making the donation in about 6 hours and that all that's getting in until that time will also be donated. So our treasurer smuggled in half a day, but I think we'll all forgive him for that ;)

I'm very sorry, but I smuggled more than half a day.
Due to some unexpected work I haven't been able to make the donation till the end of the day.
That was enough time for one of our members to just make a final huge donation to make the total a nice round € 2,000!

So I'm very happy to report that I've made a donation of $ 2,765 to Berkeley.

The money is 'on the wire' as we speak and should reach SETI@home shortly :)
Thanks to all the people who contributed to this great result!
And thanks to Uli for giving us the green star :)

Our treasurer ("Mr Swart", forum name Blackbiker) got a "WOW signal" that we would like to share with all the donors :D


Dear Mr. Swart,

We received a very generous donation from your SETI@Netherlands foundation.

$2,765 WOW!
We are jumping up and down here.
Everyone is elated and grateful.
Thanks a zillion!

If it's OK with you, we propose to use your funds to process the new SETI@home data we are collecting this month at the Green Bank telescope in West Virginia,
searching for signals from the exo-planets recently discovered by the Kepler mission.
The Arecibo telescope can't reach the Kepler field (the Kepler stars are too far north), but the 100 meter diameter GBT can.
The GBT is the world's largest fully steerable telescope and they've awarded us observing time to search these new planets in the habitable zone.

Thanks for your wonderfully generous donation!
We'll try to spend your funds wisely.

Our work is enhanced by the enthusiasm of thoughtful, adventurous, and spectacularly generous people like you.

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Best Wishes,

Dan and the SETI@home team

SETI@home Chief Scientist
Director, Center for Astronomy Signal Processing
Associate Director, Berkeley Wireless Research Center

As you can see/read (every) donation is appreciated! Keep the funds flowing & the computers crunching ;)

I've got mine, but I must say "Vipertje" really does deserve his also, not only for initiating the request, but also for being a regular donor of S@NL, thus enabling S@NL for the initial donation (as I stated in the initial request..)

PS: my sincerest apologies for my late response, but I am beyond extremely busy with work at the moment..
