This is truly something to watch out for. Jupiter is the biggest protection we have from comets and asteroids and if that protection is diminished in any way we will be in for a big surprise.

Haarp is one of many such stations.
High altitude aurora research is not what this system is about.
If they close it down to be sure it will continue just moved.
It is a weapon. I can see closing it down in the public eye as too many people know what it is already.

Too many earthquakes have been caused by it already.
Weather war is what it is all about. Cost the country that is being attacked lots of money rebuilding from a natural event.

If Tesla said he can do it, then he could.
JP.Morgan did not discredit him over false inventions.


Haarp is now the result of this same invention but used in a different way.

As an energy wave circled the earth he said he could "SMACK" it as it came around, building in strength much like sound waves do when they bounce off of each other. Transmitting through the ground was how he would deliver the energy.
Like the ocean having a layer that will transmit very low frequency for thousands of miles the ground will transmit energy the same way.

His biggest problem was the word "FREE" to everyone.

We have the know how to do it now. Making money off of it is the reason we do not have it.
Corporations will not allow this to see the light.

HAARP is now used as a WEAPON. Will cause weather to change, can cause earthquakes by placing a billion watts on one spot of a fault line and tripping that fault to slip.
Haiti had steam rising from the ground just before the earthquake they had.

It is said that HAARP will also be used for mind control but I am skeptical about that.

The energy itself came from our own ionosphere where trillions of watts of energy is just waiting for us to tap it.

He truly was a genius.
JP Morgan did his evil deed well in discrediting him.
He died poor and discredited.

I was under the impression that the speed of light is not constant.
Gravity will affect the speed as light is made of photons which is affected by gravity.

What really amazes me is the TV show "Star Trek" and just how real the technology is.

Now we are seeing the possibility of time travel, warp engines, ion power, transporter beams

This new act will damage the internet so much that projects like this one will be a thing of the past.
No matter what we say or how much we scream and yell this will pass.
Our societies are no longer being run by the people and we will have no say.
The corporations will indeed have their way.
Like the Smart Meter crap that the majority of the population said no to had us being subject to blackmail.
We were told that if we did not get the meter then we would be charged 100 dollars a month.
So now we have a meter. Smart meters have taken jobs away from Canadians and Americans.

I download movies and I did get a notice that I was downloading pirated material from Shaw communications.
I told them if I can do it then I will.
They refuse to spend millions of dollars placing "Stops" in the system so that we can't download so I have no heard back from them at all.
We must protect the net from the governments

Very well said Mark.

I too have given my life to Christ.

Having Cats as friends is a lot like having Christ with you.
Unconditional love. ( Only conditions are love, food, security)

There is a reason that the Egyptians regarded cats as protectors of man.
If only the rest of the world could understand.

I get a lot of ridicule telling people what is about to happen to our societies.
I'm called crazy, insane, you name it.
All I am doing is watching and telling people what I know will happen.
WW3 is about to take place. It must happen. The Anti-Christ is among us now. It's all Good and Evil, nothing more. The oldest battle in the world

My place in this world is secure. I may not have any riches or bank accounts with tons of false hope in them. I do understand what love is and how powerful the lessons of forgiveness that Christ gave us.
At times I look at what is now taking place in Israel and the Arab world and it's very hard to stay focused without anger. They are being guided into hating each other.



This life is just the beginning. It's what we do in this life that will determine what the next will be for us.

You are not alone Mark. Your place is secure and you are among friends.


Lots of Love bro

I walk back to Squirrel's grave most days when I can, and speak to her.
Is that odd of me?
I mean, she sat on my couch next to me for almost 18 years. Is my missing her really that unusual still?
And I STILL glance over in the dark of night and expect her to be there...





Just means one thing Mark.
Your love for her will continue for your entire life.
That is called being a True Human Being

Hey Bro

I know exactly what you mean Mark.
There is no more dear of a soul then that of a cat.
Leo my SON is now 12. I dread the day that he passes on but I must look at what relationship we have and how lucky I am to have that experience with him.

I was just diagnosed with Aids and I went insane with drugs and self abuse.
just could not handle the idea that my days were numbered. Short numbers.
A friend of mine saw was I was going through and gave me this kitten. He was only 6 week old and the runt of the litter.
My life changed at that point.
Looking after him and loving him has taught me how to be human.

My other friend Sam was an abused kitty.I was at a guys house that I did not know and I witnessed this little calico kitty being thrown against a wall.
I did what any self respecting human would do.
I broke his nose and took his cat.
He had the nerve to have the Victoria police come to my home.
The police heard the story, smiled at me and left.
So Sam and Leo had 5 litters over 2.5 years and now we have 4 cats in this house.
Surgeries were done to eliminate the possibility of more.
25 cats was enough.

They all have good homes. Two died due to Red blood cell problems but one that had the problem made it.
It was horrific to see this little girl kitten of 7 months not being able to lift her head. She was so weak.
After several dollars from vet bills she made it.
My mother was the owner.
She is not too well off but not poor. Thank God.
She went through hell with worry but the rewards are just so great.

I too have a grave yard in my back yard. Two a buried there.

Yes, your help was tremendous Mark.

You will always be in my thoughts.

Have a great day brother.

Good to hear from you Mark.

You are in my thoughts. I always embrace my inner kitty. I have no choice in the matter.
They always say to me when I am late getting home
"Your late slave"

Love it.

I have had some dealings with ERA and am finding out the computers they have are corporate donated systems.
That means low end.
Dual cores with win 7 installed but very low HD space and low ram.
Not suitable for any real Seti work
If people want a computer for internet and basic viewing then these systems will work no problem but a cruncher is not what you will find here.

They do have lots of laptops. Dual cores with 120 gig or more HD space and 4 gig ram DDR2
Those may be another thing entirely.


Two laptops have been donated to 2 lucky disabled people here in Victoria BC that I arranged for them. So ERA is the real deal and help is there

Teamviewer does not have to be installed. It can run only and the same result. As far as being busy that is okay.
I am on Disability and need things to do while I watch my medication grow (ha,ha)

I saw the post change right when I was posting. I tried to send the post and the system came up with no such thread.

Thanks for doing that Rob. Freaked me out at first but thanks for the work.

I am wondering something though.
Companies like Nvidia and AMD ATI have a huge inventory of old cards. To them the 500 series and 400 series GPU would be ideal to donate as they are not generally sold anymore and their business is now tied up with more advanced cards.
I will write both companies to find out if they do donate through their PR program.
To them having Setiathome volunteers endorsing their products would be great for us and a boom for their business.
I will feel it out and see if they do have a PR program like this

Chris S.


I completely understand where you are coming from and I always find that learning comes with need.
I myself can and do help others with their computers VIA remote computing.
Team viewer is free to use and an excellent way to remote in and control another computer

http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx

Anyone who needs help can PM me direct and after downloading Teamviewer and giving me the user and password I will come in and help for any needs


Internet connections are getting to the point now that for one they are cheap and a lot of companies offer extremely low connection fees. Most already have free internet with your cable TV connections or at least discounts on the internet end of a cable account at least here in Canada.
I have seen a lot of low income housing developments with 100% free internet for their tenants.


I absolutely applaud you for what you are doing with helping people.

Where there is a will and a need there is always a way to obtain what you need whether it is getting a computer or learning how to use one.

Good for you bro

Also it would seem my original thread has been changed from
Donated Computers in Canada, USA and other countries to
Donated Computers in Canada and other countries

Hello all

I have been asked to get a thread going on the possibility of getting a list of companies and Non profit organizations that will help low and fixed income people to get computers world wide.

This would be a very helpful list to obtain as a lot of companies that do this are not advertizing or in some cases being hidden from the public.

If any participants in Setiathome or any of the other distributed computing projects know of non profit organizations and would like to let the public in on it then list here.

There are many people in North America and other countries that have incomes so low the idea of owning a computer is a pipe dream.

Awareness of these places that will help is far and few as their own budgets leave no room for advertizement so people are not getting the information they need.

I posted a previous thread called "Donated Computers in Canada" and this thread is meant to replace that to include USA and other countries

Any ideas or knowledge of companies that do this service will be greatly appreciated.

For Canada this company services 11 cities Canada wide
http://www.era.ca will help in the areas of

Calgary Alberta
Edmonton Alberta
Vancouver, Richmond BC
Victoria BC
Saskatoon Saskatchewan
Winnipeg Manitoba
Montreal Quebec
Toronto Ontario
Ottawa Ontario
Barrie Ontario
Dartmouth Nova Scotia



Thank you very much

If the iMac is a single unit and not a desktop the fan issue may be one great headache.
They are just like laptops and very hard to maintain.
I do not use any Mac products at all for one reason. MONEY
Cost is way too high.
A noisy fan could resolve itself if you turn it down a bit but with that iMac heat is a killer

On my desktop I have a cool master 212 plus cooler and it keeps the CPU very cool but the motherboard is hot so I completely remove the side cover and place a small desk fan blowing in.
Keeps thing very cool but I did loose one MOBO recently as my cat did bite into a fan wire and shorted out the circuit. Smoked my MOBO.

Now I have a small screen replacing the side cover so no cats get in there
I run full bore on this six core and at 100% load running AP units I get temps hovering around 32C.
Very cool for air cooling.

Good luck and keep your computer cool

Michael
