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 :)

Hi Guys,

On behalf of the SETI@Netherlands team I would like to thank you for all your hard work you are putting in.
No budget, no manpower and no luck. It's a bitch.
But please, don't get discouraged and keep up the good work.

When you've got the flow running again, we will again do our part in the search :)

SETI@Netherlands is celebrating its 10th Anniversary today!
In honour of that fact we've been organizing a donation rally for SETI@home.
I'm pleased to tell you that this has accumulated to a staggering $ 1,760,--.

To complete the donation, the SETI@Netherlands foundation will add an amount to make it a nice $ 2,000,--.
Today I will give the order to submit that to SETI@home.

So there is another donation on it's way, meant to arrive at the 25th of september :)

Just dropped in to tell you that we've hit the 1,000 euro today :)
That's about 1,450 US dollars.
And there is still a week to go.

Johnney, you are completely right.
The donation challenge is something internal of our team. We want to celebrate our anniversary by donating some money to the project we owe our existence to. This is NOT, I repeat, NOT linked to participating in the Gauntlet.

There is NO DONATION required to enter the Gauntlet!

And maybe it would have been better to have kept this in separate threads.
But hey, we didn't. Our bad. I guess we got a bit carried away :)

Sorry if this has created some confusion, guys!

This being said, you are all still very welcome to join us in our FREE anniversary Gauntlet!

And today we breached the $1000,-- barrier :-)

And we are extending the Gauntlet invitation to all teams that are interested to participate. No teams will be banned or refused.

So, click on the links provided by Eesger and sign up!
We hope to have the biggest Gauntlet yet :)
