Message 524937 - Posted: 1 Mar 2007, 12:51:17 UTC - in response to Message 524808.  

I Personally, want to Thank Everyone that has found "Something!" Job Well done!

Okay I am overdue, and trying to not push anyone...

As of [1 Mar 2007 1:06:13 UTC] $167891.47 has been raised or 31.2% of the goal... So in three months almost a third of the Goal has been reached... It shows what can be accomplished when everyone works together!

Good efforts all round.

What I do know is that drives for the various Array's are still needed... Partly it will be required to get the Upload/Download Array's to a bit of a larger capacity as MultBeam Data hits... When I saw Matt dismiss the Red Lights on the NAS graphic... I cringed...

That "dissmiss" was likely only because thosw failed drives are not a problem at this instant. There are much more serious firefighting of systems fires elsewhere!

When more of the multibeam data hits, then the focus will no doubt shift again to the next 'problem'. It's just a question of when the NAS comes into focus as the next problem. With the flood of multibeam data and the continued increase in CPU power (even if the user base reduces), so when will be the "When"?


A big improvement must be in dropping the now high charges from Cogent. Full (business) kudos to them for providing a solution at the time. Looks like their deal got expensive, or Hurricane are more obliging for their link.

Regards,
Martin

Morning Everyone

One of the drive types that are needed to get Storage up to snuff for the UpComing transfer of Multibeam Workunits is:

73GB 10K U160 80P 16MB ST373405LCV yes these are becoming obsolete and harder to find...

We need 8 of them!

IF you can afford one of these and want to ship directly to UCB, then please conctact me... I can give You the shipping address.

Hi Darren,

which URL(s) did you try?

These two currently exist:

Donate to SETI@Home directly (via Credit Card or Check/Money order)
Donate to SETI@Home via PayPal (external site)

HTH,
Simon.


The first one where you click through to:

https://colt.berkeley.edu/urelgift/seti.html

which displays a blank screen.

Oops,

you're right. It did work last time I checked :o)

Hope that will be fixed soon, though I wouldn't count on today, it being Sunday. I'm sure someone will take care of it tomorrow.

Pappa, can you get in touch with Eric about this?

Regards,
Simon.

Okay Folks

Some Very Good News The Replacement Server is a Dual 2.6 Xeon with 12Gig (will be) of RAM is being built. The bulk of the OS Install and the build should be completed on Thursday... There have been many that have donated Motherboard, CPU's, RAM, the case, Fiberchannel cards, Drives and Memory... Some want to recognized and others that want to just be in the background. I Respect that, so no names mentioned! Eric Knows!

So after a bit of testing I presume that it will take a few days to migrate data from kryten... We hope that it will majickly appear by the next weekly outage...

All I can say is that "IF" we put our minds/resources together and a bit of Funds "WE" can Help to insure that Seti Survives...

Thank You, to Everyone that has found a way to Help! I know that some would if they had the resources, Seti Understands...

We still have other drives to get replaced... More on that later... Or watch Donate Hardware II

Regards

Pappa
