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.

Thank you JohnDK!

Come on people, john as done the first step.

Who else can afford donating $50 montlhy to the project?


With 199 more volunteers like John we can match a $120.000 anual budget.

A budget who certainly would do a lot in having our results analysed, and possibly having the near time persistency checker working on finding the best "signals" candidates.

Is this not why we are all here?

Msattler, our kittyman are you next?

I donated some money earlier last month. The plan will be to donate twice a year for me(Christmas bonus, and after property taxes). The equivalent of a mid range graphics card. My wife and I spend most of our extra charitable income for the Toys for Tots program.
