How much did we raise?

That's easy. https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/donation_history.php

Thanks for contributing.

And a special thanks for whomever gave the $7,000.00 donation in December.

I contributed indirectly by purchasing additional hardware to process more data. I now have four modest machines dedicated exclusively to running SETI fulltime. My numbers are way up and my RAC is still increasing as the last machine comes up to speed. These four are going to run 24/7 until they are spent.

It would be interesting to know how much is contributed in 'silent' contributions by those purchasing, operating and maintaining processing hardware. It might be a valuable funding tool to be able to state that volunteers support SETI so strongly that they have been willing to donate $X amount of personal resources to the project. Though, I suppose that could be estimated based upon average $ per gigaflop.

The challenge is in convincing people to donate cash to pay for the network, hardware, and staff funding so that we can receive workunits to our computers. Boasting about how much people have personally invested in their hardware will only challenge others to invest in their hardware due to their competitive nature. Though the project needs more computing power too, they still need assistance paying for the stuff that allows us to contribute.

Getting users to contribute more hardware isn't a bad thing, but I get your point.

The abundance of data has made our funding needs a little more demanding this year, so we're hoping you can [url=http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_donate.php]help us ou a bit more.

The abundance of data???

Where??? Not on SaH at least.
