Personal background
Alrighty, I'm Dave and live in a small town outside of Manchester (UK) called Ashton-u-Lyne. It's not bad, but not great either.. Anyway, I enjoy hobbies such as going to the gym and trying to loose my belly, swimming, mountain biking, watching the F1 and WRC on telly when i remember it's on, listening to my mini-iPod (coolest thing i own i think), reading and watching TV of course!
I work at Manchester Met. University in the Faculty of Art & Design's Information Systems Team. I look after all sorts of stuff that will bore you senseless, but suffice it to say i'm a Mac/Linux/Novell guy rather than Windoze guy, although i do keep up to date on that as i need it for the job.
Currently i'm studying to finish off my degree with the Open Univeristy; next February i start a Digital COmmunications course which will nearly complete my degree..
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run Seti@home for several reasons: it's be nice to get some credit just in case one of my systems detects something, it'd be nice for seti@home to detect something useful and i maybe make that slightly more likely, it's a good technical challenge to get the cli client working on different platforms and lets be honest, it's a contest to see who can crunch the most units and a bit of competition neverr hurt..
My views, it's a good project with good aims although i'd like to see more development on the non-windows clients. I know and understand why there isn't much development but i'd still like to see more done.
On the user profile page, put an overall ranking number on it like on the old school seti@home profile page.

Stick with it guys..
