I'm confused — is she naughty or nice? (Or a little bit of both?)

Shannock: it's ten posts or 24 hours, whichever occurs second - but no more than 48 hours.

Where did the user page go? Right now, I have to search for my username.

and I agree with others here - this should'a been tried out on Beta before unleashing this design on the general SETI site![/code]

If I stare at this long enough, will I be permanently cross-eyed?

I'd happily buy them a new RAID card (if that's what they need) out of the petty cash, but I think the global (if that's the right word) picture is bigger than that. I received this email overnight - I imagine most of you will receive yours over the next few days.

Dear Richard Haselgrove:

In recent years it's become clear that planets are common around stars in our Galaxy and the number of possible abodes of life number in the billions. The number of civilizations that inhabit our Galaxy is still unknown, but thanks to SETI@home anyone can help search for those civilizations using their home computer or mobile phone. But SETI@home still needs your help.

It's been an exciting year for SETI@home. In addition to our ongoing search for extraterrestrial radio emissions with the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, we've started analyzing data collected by the Breakthrough Listen project at the Green Bank Telescope, the largest fully steerable radio telescope in the world. Breakthrough Listen will soon start collecting data at the Parkes radio telescope, the largest steerable radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere, and SETI@home could analyze these data.

To do so, SETI@home needs two things. First, we need you, and your friends and family. The current flood of data requires more processing power than SETI@home volunteers currently provide. Please spread the word about SETI@home. Second, SETI@home needs the funding to obtain the hardware and develop software required to handle this new data source. SETI@home has only obtained one third of the $450,000 in funding it needs for the coming year. If SETI@home doesn't meet these funding goals, expansion to new telescopes may not be possible.

I'm hoping that you will give generously. Together we can reach the stars.

Happy Holidays!

Eric Korpela
Director of SETI@home


. . Hi Richard,

. . Sadly that request, in light Of David Andersons message about being asked to submit a final report on Seti, seems rather damning. With the probable closure of Arecibo and the seemingly inevitable delay in Parkes joining Breakthrough Listen the project seems to be caught twixt the rock and the hard place. Seems like we need an injection of optimism as much as, or even more than, just an injection of capital.

. . We need promoters :)

Stephen

Even if Arecibo quits, we still have the Greenbank data to sift through...

Well, the extra 24 hours have passed, with no additional entries: therefore let Judgement Day the judging begin!

Dis-honorable mention to Carlos for "It's Obama's fault" I don't see the connection between Washington DC, and a city sidewalk problem in Albany, CA...

Carlos does take THIRD PLACE, though, for:
"Postman's Retirement Plan"

SECOND PLACE goes to Jaundiced Eye for:
"This really gives me a sinking feeling..."

and FIRST PLACE and next post go to Jumpin' Johnnie for:
"Bad plumbing causes bad sidewalks causes bad ankles causes less walking."
(although I think this particular crumple is a tree root problem...)

PM going out as soon as this missive is posted...

Is the lack of a stats export from the last several days related to the download woes? (and the server needs a kick, again...)
