By My simple calculations there is $7,207.00 that has been raised to replace Mork.

Msattler is one heck of a fund raiser, Two Servers to be replaced and It's thanks to this man that the project has an opportunity to do so.

In Order to raise public awareness of this Thread maybe we could
get a "News" on the Front Page instead of reading always the same old News...

Helli

Helli, until the Admins step in, we are stuck with wot we got.


I know.

If I quite remember we had already News to Donations in the Past on the Front Page. Sad that nobody had remembered to do so...

Once again, you have all shown your stripes and humbled me.

Now all I want for Christmas is my servers.

Many thanks are due you for responding to my little requests.
It's 'just' a project, but apparently some of you think as I do, and believe that it's an important one.

They ARE out there............

Christmas? Since the boys know what they want and now have the money for them we might see the new stuff taking over by Halloween. That's a week to get them and two weeks to set them up, it's do-able!! ( Okay, that's pushing it but I'm not gonna wait a day past Thanksgiving! :-) ) Have fun with your new toys guys!

I'm still amazed by the generosity of the people here. This is just fantastic!

What did I do?

A few weeks ago I asked for some help for 'my' project.

I only asked for a few bits of kibble, and I got a 100 pound sack of kitty food dropped on my head.

You have all just been amazing.

The crick in my neck will go away, but your generosity will not be forgotten.

Oh, geez........the old MASH joke was.....'evacuate........"I think I already have"....LOL.'

I think I can handle another 100 pounds of kitty food dropped on the ol' noggin.

It's the project I wish well.

And you all have helped so very much.
So many have stepped up to the plate and given more than I ever thought possible.

I'll take another sack on my hard head.......it can handle it.....LOL.

It is truly almost unbelievable to Me, Msattler has amassed a bit of an Army to come to Seti's Rescue.

I have just posted this on "Stargazers Lounge", the biggest Astronomy Forum in the UK.

Dear All,

SETI@Home is going through a difficult time at the moment. A Server has died and we are trying to raise some cash to replace it.

There is an SGL team on SETI@Home and we all crunch data to help the project.

Having just got back from the Kielder Star party and donated $25 to the Emergency Appeal, I thought that other SGL Team members might want to help out with $5-$10. It is only a couple of beers, or a tiny bit of kit from the vendors at Kielder, but will help keep the project going.

If you can't, then that is okay, but please keep supporting the project by crunching.

MODS - if you feel this post in inappropriate, please delete it (but I hope that you don't, as the SGL Team and others need to give help to this project).

Cheers

Tom


Let'shope that someone steps up to the plate (and that I don;t get banned from SGL Forum). This Astro Forum has over 2000 active members, so perhaps we will get a donation or at least a new "cruncher"

It seems that I just have to beat the naysayers down.

When the project crashes, it just brings out so many negative folks.
Their comments hurt me personally.....although they are not shot at me directly.

The recent response to my pleas has been just overwhelming.

Restores my faith. It really does.
