That's all it costs per year. Obviously more money would allow them to do more, such as hire additional help.

Ahhh....I took it wrong then. Thought you were wondering about all the constant fundraising and requests for donations when that was 'all' it takes to keep it running.

You are correct though. The amount of computing power contributed to Seti on their shoestring budget is indeed immense.

An Economic Plan that works. WOW! Shoot it off to the Super Committee right away!

No, don't give them the credit for saving The US Financial System. Get this Plan to The White House Now!

Concept of reap/sow might enter into the equation.

lets also not forget his wonderful means of quoting people. Ever hear of using the "quote" tab instead of the "BOLD" that makes it easier to read and less like you are attempting to emphasize something, Which bold typing is typically used for

Dull, Dull, pay attention,

That thread seemingly got derailed when the railing turned out to be to blame Obama for making a choice between welfare fraud and NASA. As rational people might realize, that is truly a straw man -- and a thread derailing approach.
