So your the one behind the donations threads? Nice going, here ya have a brewski!

Don't forget to send a case of beer down to the guys at the lab. They could shure use it for all the work they've been doing and complaining they've been putting up with (probably ignoring) over the last two weeks.

*points to pic* One of my co-workers and good friends fell in love with Young's Double Chocolate Stout back in January. I've tried it, and I must say I'm not a stout (double chocolate or otherwise) fan. For beer I'll stick with a Bud or Bud Select. I much prefer single malt scotches though, and for that I'm thankful that I only live about 5 minutes away from the Dundee Dell.

And to those who are considering abandoning ship, it's a long swim back to shore.....

and the reference is to??? [EDIT] because I'm considering it.

Sorry it took so long to read your reply, Philadelphia. I made that comment because, as I was reading the boards that day, I noticed a lot of people complaining about the fact that they are having to wait so long for the broken SETI computer to be repaired or replaced. I have been running SETI for 8 years now and this is one of only a few times that I recall them ( the SETI volunteers ) having an issue that took so much time to fix. Those folks keeping watch over the project work hard to make sure that we have a steady supply of work units to crunch. Yet, instead of thanking them for their hard work and dedication, some folks were just going on about how they're average is going to fall because they cant get W/U's
