Some of those may not be related to this crazy exercise, but that's truly amazing!

I'm more a lurker than a participant on here, but huge respect to the crazy man that started this, and to those that made such a dream into reality.

No, Vic.......
Nobody is too 'cheap'.........


Some cannot afford to donate extra funds to Seti, some simply do not wish to.......
Some can afford to grant us $4000.00, some $10.00, some none.

It's all good, as one's heart is where the kibble lies..........+-

I am done here........

Believe it or not, I have gotten some rotten PMs about my ATTITUDE........and accusing me of misdoing.........

Implying that I was making jest of those who could not afford a $100.00 gift.
And that somehow I was making money offa this fund drive. How could I EVEN????????

Nothing could be further from the truth, and I thought I had made that very clear here.

You give me a thousand $1.00 donations, and I will make it happen, somehow.......

Even if it comes out of my own kitties' kibble bowls.......

So do not EVER accuse me again of doing anything in other than Seti's best interests here.

I thought I had done good, but I am crying now.

Thanks, hon.....

To the rest of y'all.......
Uli has been a good friend of mine for a few years now.
So I reserve the right to call her 'hon'.

It's between us, and shall remain so, even though I have never met her............

So let's lay THAT one to rest as well.

The kittyman loves Lori, Callie kitten (especially 'cuz she's not doing so well), Starbucks......because he loves the new kittens, Leo........Ty

I think I mentioned........Lori has a pair of Maine Coon kittehs.....now 7 months old..........and they are freaking amazing. We went to a kitty with purebred breeders competing.......and there were NONE as grand as hers.
No BS here......their tails are getting to be as large as their whole bodies.
THAT is a Maine Coon.

An amazing feat, but sadly, some even more amazing (for want of a better word) attitudes. It heartens and saddens at the same time. Come this Friday (Yippee Day, as I'm 'rich' for a couple of days!) I'll throw what I can, into whatever hat is around S@H. Somehow.

Kittyman,
Thank you for all you have done the last few weeks. Without your enthusiasm in these fund drives the boys at Berkeley would still be scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to get enough for a new server not half as good as they can have now.

They will probably have enough left over for a beer or two at their local watering hole too. At least I hope they do. I sure wouldn't begrudge them a couple. (They can take it out of my $20.00 if it's still left over. I didn't specify any use for it.)

Mark,

The tactlessness of some people is unimaginable. As cynical as I am, it's beyond comprehension that anyone could question your motives in this endeavor.

So anyway, since I live in Vegas, I happened to be in a casino last night, and slipped a fiver into a slot machine and got quite lucky. It's found money to me anyway, so I'll add it to the pile.

Thank you for your gift of $100.00 via Visa on 09/19/2010.

That should cover the confusion over coffee funds last month. .. or close to it.
The idea of someone installing a new server without adequate caffiene levels
I find frightening.

And.. that should empty out my donation abilities for some time.
