Man, I hope I did that the right way... first-timers; can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.

$50 coming your way.

Make sure to direct your Gift to go to SETI or it goes into the general college fund to be divided equally between Departments if I remember correctly.

I guess I did it correctly. The email receipt says "Thank you for your gift to the SETI@home."

The thing that had me worried was the lack of a place to "select" SETI@Home. I suppose that was "assumed" by the URL I followed.

Thank you for your on going contributions Byron, but it makes me wonder if the merchant fees charged by the credit card companies are a flat fee or a percentage of each transaction.

Does anybody know?

Always by percentage of the total transaction - and sometimes an additional per transaction fee too.

My business accepts credit cards and they all operate the same.

Universally both. First is a verification fee for checking that the card is good and giving the authorization number; the second is a percent of the transaction. There is also a minimum monthly fee but I'm sure that the Regents do more than the minimum.

That's what I thought. I just wanted to point out to Byron that Seti@home would get more out of his donations if he made one large donation instead of several small donations that totaled up to equal the large donation.

It's not like the credit card companies need the transaction verification fees to survive.

judging by his use of the word "probably" I'd say it's not a known fact.

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.
Byron you show two different amounts in one of your posts. $105 and $125 I will take the higher figure, until I hear differently from you.

Neal, see my PM
