I have given modestly in the past and what I can afford at the time. If only 1 percent of the participants (and I'm rounding up I think), are donating they may just have an advertising problem in getting the word out. If seti goes away will it be the end of the world? I don't think so... Boinc is not dependent on seti and seti must stand on it's own two legs so to speak.

Will I give again? Probably when I can, it won't be enough to save seti if it is slated for failure and I give out of gratitued for the chance to participate not in how happy I am with its progress or the attitudes of the admins. They will change what they have to in order to survive imo meanwhile, I will do what I can to help find ET.

Scott
This is fair enough IMO. I just feel that they can't expect much (in terms of $$$) from just a crunching project (which is all it is at the moment, really not much to do with finding an ETI).

Frankly i have considered that berkleys agenda is to build and test a highly scalable distributed computing client and that searching for an ETI (initially) was a great draw card. Now however there are lots of other projects which use this great technology, so searching for an ETI is pretty low on the list LOL...

From what i can read (between the lines) if SETI@HOME doesn't do something drastic, the project will die. No it wont be the end of the world and i am sure someone will pickup the pieces again in the future.....

Exactly. Not to mention, there are a lot of other projects available to crunch for, so BOINC won't be going anywhere.

TV spots won't be beneficial until they get the public friendly GUI ready for distribution. Boinc is just too complicated to use right now but there probably are not too many people already intrested in the search that aren't already participating or have in the past. A plea for money to the general public works for other organizations so why not Seti? They should be ready for the curious public when they do this I would think.

Never argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.

Just passed Whit3Fir3 in RAC on SETI

Me: 1071
Him: 1063

Yeah, I know he can kick it up anytime but thought I'd take advantage of the current situation and pat myself on the back.

Great Job Labbie. :smt023

Looking at stats also I see as a Team in Boinc Combined Stats we will hit 2 million Tommorrow.

Most of it in Seti, but looks like a few others are moving on up slowly too. Great work Team. :smt038
