Soooo, how'd we do this February 1, 2012?

Still on the path. Still making me ornery, still hard to shake the cravings.
But still sticking with the program...kitties are happy, I think.


If the kitties are happy, then everyone ought to be happy.

Keep fighting the good fight! I've got faith.

Thank you and everybody else who joined in. It has helped having all of your support.

Meow meow meow!


And it was my pleasure to put $250 on the upload/download server in your honor.

I've paid-off that wager, but I'm still betting on you.

Mark, I have also paid off my wager. $50.00 towards the AP server. And Im glad you didnt give up.

I have not smoked since Aug 10th 1989. And every once in a blue moon I still get a craving. But remember this. It is just a phsycological one not a physical one.

My birthday is July 31st. If you still are not smoking by that date, I will celebrate My 60th year by giving another $50.00 to the server of your choice. Either the AP or a download/upload server.

Thank you as well, my friend.
Although I hope those 2 servers are up and running in the server closet by then indeed.

I gave the day I said I would challenge you in this deal. I had confidence I would be paying anyway. Great job so far hope to have a positive 6 month and 1 year free report. Again best wishes staying smoke free for the rest of your life.

My preference would be the up/down server, but either one is just fine if you have a personal preference, my friend.

Quick bump on this.
I know we've talked about this off line, but its worth others knowing that "despite" the servers having been funded there are a few things left, and there are rumours that a new "shopping list" will be coming out soon, so if you haven't paid you debts on behalf of Mark's efforts the GPUUG will still process your money, and assign it appropriately.


And as an adjunct, I've upped the anti on Mark - if he manages six months then its doubles from me. (And I'm not at liberty to say what the Kitties will do to him if he fails...)

I still owe Mark his money. I'll wait until I see the new shopping list when Matt is back next week, then I'll choose something and report back. OK, I'll go with the doubling at 6 months as well :-)

Glad to see you've lasted the first month, Mark.

I'll be making my semi-annual donation to S&H later this week, and although I didn't make a public commitment when this started, I'll add some to the GPUUG pot, too.

I smoked pipe and cigars for over 15 years in the Navy. Quit in June 1990, still get the urge when I'm around other pipe or cigar smokers. But my mother was on oxygen for 12 years due to COPD before the colon cancer took her, and I don't want to have to live like that....

Well, don't forget that any donations to the GPUUG's fund drives do go directly to Seti. The only difference is they are targeted directly at the project's own wish list for hardware. And in the past, many donors complained that they had little control over what their donations were used for. I think this is much of the reason for the GPUUG's success.

If you fail, and they only a quarter of what they said then you should be very enthused to keep on going.


Well done, and keep going, you'll have some very pleased kitties ;-)
