Personal background
A retired Telecomms man trying to do his bit for Seti and other worthwhile Boinc projects.

My BT Retired Team is a constant source of pleasure to me, and we have now passed the magic 1 Billion !!!

It's incredible to realise that it's all been around for over 15 years now, from Seti Classic to Boinc, it seems like half a lifetime, and probably does to the lads in the Seti lab!

What initially were on-line friends around the world have now translated into real life friends, that I have now met, and I'll never be able to thank Seti enough for that. I try to do my best by supporting the Seti project in any way that I can, whether by donating money, or doing Beta testing. I also try to play an active part on the forums, sometimes maybe too active!

I live in London UK, and regularly visit family and friends in other parts of the country, notably Devon and Yorkshire. I have also visited Seti people in Western and Eastern USA, and I really hope I can go back there one day, but it seems unlikely.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
It never ceases to amaze me at the number of people that throw a total brain fart when Seti runs out of work units to send. There are plenty of other BOINC projects that are worthy of being crunched in the meantime, I just marvel at the angst displayed. Half the world are starving, the other half are killing each other every day, and the whole lot don't believe in female equality. But Seti work seems more important to some than any of that. Just makes me wonder where some peoples priorities come from.

Life on this earth is so fragile at times, I really do wonder if it can exist elsewhere.... Maybe in the words of DeForest Kelley "It's life Jim, but not as we know it".

And to quote another famous line from the Galaxy Song,

"And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth".

I'd sure like to find out in the rapidly decreasing time that I have left. Probably won't but theres always beer in the fridge ....
