Personal background
I currently live in beautiful South Saint Paul, MN. I moved here from sunny GA, after retiring from 20 years in the Air Force.

I was born in Omaha, Nebraska, USA, 10 March 1957, on Offutt AFB. I traveled to Japan, back to Omaha, Montana, and back to Omaha, before going into the Air Force myself in 1975.

I've been stationed at Offutt AFB, Nebraska; Howard AB, Panama Canal; Tinker AFB, Oklahoma; Yokota AB, Japan; RAF Chicksands, United Kingdom; and Warner Robins AFB, Georgia.

After getting out of the service I worked as a civilian contracted Systems Administrator, LAN/WAN Network Support, PC Technician, and Radio Maintenance Technician for an Air Force Reserve base at the International Airport here in the twin cities.

I've worked for Adobe Systems and now for Tightrope Media Systems in Saint Paul, MN. I'm a Software Quality Assurance Engineer currently working on digital signage systems. What a fantastic place to work! If you ever get the chance to work for them, I'd highly recommend it.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run seti@home for many different reasons.
1) I rate the speed of different computers with it.
2) Gives you something to contribute to a conversation when you're all out of other things to say. "So, how many results can your computer complete in one day?"
3) Makes me feel I'm a part of a group attempting the near impossible.
4) Secretly hope we'll find intelligent life.
