Please help the UFO Sightings Daily Fund To Achieve Our Goals. Thanks SCW


Please help my site by helping me to purchase this incredibly great computer. Mine is falling apart and I've had it since starting this site. A lot of readers said they wanted to help me out, so I set up this fund. We are 19% of the way to our goal of $3,400. This will allow me to continue this site for years to come. 

Why do I need this Apple computer? Because I only know how to use macs, and have no clue how to use windows computers. Two very different systems. Also I can search the larger 200-500mb NASA photos without having my computer crash. It crashes right now when I open them.

  1. No offense but you should EASILY be able to buy a good PC with the money you already raised. $500 is totally enough to buy a PC.

    Windows and Macs aren't all that different as far as users are concerned. Anyone with a brain could spend 30 minutes and know exactly how to use either.

    There's no reason at all to spend $3400 on a computer. It seems exceedingly greedy. Just go buy a good PC with the money you already have. You already raised enough! "Not knowing" Windows is a VERY lazy excuse...4 year olds can use windows...

  2. I was honestly going to contribute $20 but now that I see that you ALREADY have enough to get a good PC I have changed my mind.

    1. I just did a comparison in cost and for up to around 2500$ you can get a top shelf i7 hackingtosh a whole mess of ram, ips 4k screen(s), kick ass nv video card and then just spend the rest on either a lesser i7 machine and or dump onto a nice nas for your media assets. Also, you wont have the whole imac over heating issue and then apple telling you SOL :P if that imac were a pc, it would be a 1200$ dell.....

    1. Hi Catherine, thanks for offering, very kind of you, but its easier to do it this way. I'm sorry its not easy for sure, but in a year or so, the funds will get there. Thank you though for your kind thoughts.

  6. Hi Scott

    My name is Joe and I reside in Australia. I'm not super rich but I believe in what you are doing and am willing to assist with your cause. I'm tossing up on whether to offer a flat $100 or do the $500 contribution over time. I'm not pulling your chain either - deadly serious. Is there any other way we can communicate either by Gmail or Hotmail so that I can ask a few more questions in private. Please let me know. Joe

    1. Wow, thats so nice of you, thank so much. It wasn't my intention to really ask for that much from one person. I really was just hoping to get a few dollars from many readers...it will add up fast. I do appreciate it though. Super thoughtful. Joe, you can ask me any question privately on Twitter messages, or just ask here. I'm really up front about myself. Im on Twitter everyday so I will see it. Thanks, SCW

    2. Don't be fooled, Scott already has PLENTY to buy a good computer. At this point he is being greedy.

      Mine died recently and I got a GREAT pc for $500. There is NO EXCUSE for him not already having a new computer.

      The ONLY reason to get a mac over pc is if you are a professional graphic designer. That's literally the only reason.

      Why Scott insists that he needs $3400 for a new computer is far beyond me. Anyone with half a brain knows it which is why he will NEVER reach the goal.

      It's EXTREMELY insulting to his readers. Just go buy a good pc with the $600+ you already have. There is no reason at all to wait.

      Period.

  7. Thanks for replying Scott. The questions may not be personal for you but they are somewhat for me and I don't feel comfortable asking them in an open forum. What is your twitter account name so that I can find you?

  8. I don't trust the internet. I've only responded to your site. And I was timid to do so. Appreciate your expertise and knowledge you share. Can't help. Wish I trusted technology but I don't when it comes to $. Thank you, hope you understand Scott.
