Don't have exact numbers, but I would hazard a guess that the new HP servers ran about $20,000.00......give or take.

I ran 3 fundraisers.......we have that much covered.

With the donations still coming in they should be able to add all kinds of new bells and whistles to make these the bestest servers ever in the SETI closet! They will probably use any extra to upgrade and replace parts in the rest of their stable too. This is really great of all the loyal Setizens out there that have made these new servers possible just in the nick of time!

I have just donated and decided to publish the donorbadge on my Facebook profile.
Two things:

* The first step which makes possible to share the badge on the profile site works fine, but....

*When the donor badge is posted, the links associated to this new badge still shows your private details as home address, when you filled in the form when donating some moments before. WATCH OUT. This should NOT happen.

*The second step provided to add to your profile does not work at all, at least it has not for me when I tried it.

*Third step provided did not reach it either. See here the link--->Donor Badge on Facebook

Hey, you, Zuckerberg! The one who created this Facebook stuff......
Donate at once 2 million US Dollars from your own not deserved money from your account to SETI@home / Berkeley for this crap of work of yours. Facebook has lots of problems with security issues and this is one more to add up.

And last but not least.....this donor badge DOES NOT support the Russian alphabet/cyrillic fonts.
Add up 1 million US dollars to the fine.

They're using it to prop up one of the servers to keep it from falling over.
