Thank you Justin for working on this in my absence. Byron, I had to take the last stat from Justin, to be able to bring this up todate.

I do have a couple of questions. I just noticed Donald L. Johnson had two different donation confirmation numbers. So I am giving him the benefit of the doubt and add another $50 to his account.

Uli, if it makes a difference, I donated $50 in September to the "Oscar" drive, and then $50 in October to the "Mork Replacement" drive. At one point we were keeping the tallies separate.

Once I get some of the bills paid down, I'll probably be back with another donation - before Christmas I hope.

Thank you Donald, that answers my question.

Yellow doesn't show up well, so how about red hot for Byron. I will make the changes tonight.

Maybe the S@H Staff could comment on where the next fund raiser should target it's efforts? Perhaps network infrastructure, software, room cooling, other gear, is needing a refresh more than the remaining server hardware. Matt/Jeff/Eric, any thoughts? And thank you to you three and the other staff for the hard work!

Why not just keep this one going? The staff can re-purpose any extra money towards the next fire that needs put out.

Thank You All

Lest it be lost. Bruno which was, a server that was built by "You" the users: has been failing. A portion of the outages over the last 6-8 months were a result of Bruno being tired. In New/Used parts "You" the Users spent roughly $4000+ USD to build Bruno to get Seti out of a Hardware Crunch. It was almost a Seti Hardware Major Advancement. Bruno proudly replaced several machines. Those times were as tough, as what we are currently facing.

I would have to say that I have not been chasing Donations to Seti. I can say that Every Dollar (pick your curency) counts! Each Donations Counts!

In a private conversation that I had with Eric. It has confouned UCB that so many people with a simple $10 dollar donation can keep them so busy. I would say that it simply means that "You Can" have some Large Impact on the world. Each time we try, "we" keep moving things ahead. So finding the answer to ET (yes or no) is as much faith as we can put into the problem. Donations do not hurt in solving that problem.

Thank You

Regards

Al




Please consider a Donation to the Seti Project.
