As I stated in this post
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=77483&postid=1696866#1696866

I matched what the extra in my power bill was. I will do that several more times this year and should be well over a C note. If everyone here donates just 1 month of what they spend on power for this project it would be a HUGE amount. Right now only about 1/10th of a percent donate anything. Lots of small amounts add up. The minimum is 10 bucks. Enough people do that it makes a HUGE amount.

And I started this before I read the bad news for funding bits.........
All the more urgent, I suppose.
If nobody else will fund this project, it's about time the users did.

I am really getting more pissy about this than usual, because it's beoming ever more apparent that our government does NOT give a shit about science unless it applies to warfare.

Stars? WTF are they? Oh, launching points.

I see.

If you don't care about the project or believe in it's scientific worth, just why are you here?
Some of us happen to believe in it very strongly, and wish to support it.
If you do not, please take your belittling comments elsewhere.

Anybody who wishes to help support Seti has the opportunity to do so at any time, but I do these little fund raisers from time to time just to remind folks of the need and maybe budge a few undecided persons to pony up a few bucks if they so desire to.

Don't contribute more than your computing resources if you don't wish to. But you don't have to tear the project down either.

At the risk of getting banned I have to support Mark's reply to Dull.

No One Else, In Da Vrold, besides '12 People', and A Few Rabid Crunchers, 'Care' About This 'Data' beiing 'Crunched'. No One.

How dare you refer to Seti@home project supporters as "rabid", talk about the pot calling the kettle....

Why? So 'They' can Make Worthless, Cheesy Videos?

They were useful feedback to crunchers, just because you didn't personally like them is irrelevant.

why Anyone should 'Donate' Precious Monies and Time to A Project 'Seemingly' on 'it's' Last 'Legs'.

It is not on it's last legs, because English isn't your first language you are unable to understand that Boinc funding may be terminating but funding for Seti@home is not.

I am therefore asking, pleading, begging you to leave seti and never ever come back here again. We don't want, neither need, people like you around here. If my word isn't good enough for you read here.

That is from one of the nicest, most patient, and most respected persons involved in this project. Have you got the message now?

GO AWAY!

No probs Mark, my pleasure, there are times when people simply have to have the guts to say things that need to be said. Even martyrs are respected posthumously :-)
