My days in Berkeley are numbered; that number being three, at most. My poster and talk for the conference in Naramata that starts this Sunday are both done. I need to go to UBCO this Friday to take care of some things, so the latest I'll leave is Thursday morning.

Tonight the Zappa Plays Zappa tour rolls into Berkeley. I went to their concert last year in San Francisco and it was amazing. I'll be going tonight as long as the guy on craigslist who contacted me lets me know where I can meet him. I've heard this latest tour with Ray White on vocals is really terrific.

I will depart from Berkeley in the next three hours. It has been a great 26 months working here, and though my job wasn't really doing much SETI@home related work, it was still a cool experience being able to see what goes on behind the scenes. I probably won't blog here too much from now on, but I won't be a stranger either. I think the computer UBCO is giving me will be a better machine than my laptop to install BOINC on. I think my laptop's on its last legs (and those are borrowed legs anyway since Eric got me a new hard drive about a year ago).

So long, SETI enthusiasts! The Universe Will Provide

Doesn't it always? ;-D


I find it very satisfying to know that the data are used for many other projects than looking for ET signals, including your own project. It's my impression that there are several other projects under the umbrella of Seti.

Sometimes I think we are alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we are not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.
