Personal background
My name is Jeroen (yeeroon), and I live and work in Holland.
I am member of Boinc en seti from 2000 and work with a few other boinc-projects as well.
But my favorite is and always will be SETI.
I built this computer especially for the purpose of crunching for SETI.

Not very big or expensive, but powerful enough to put some WU behind me.
Its fun to upgrade my computer every month a little bit, and see the performance go up. Nice to see a performance boost with the use of CUDA processing.

My computer works now almost 24/7.

I hope together we will find ET.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Big philosophical questions:

If we find live on a distant planet.
And the highest live-form on this planet is a chicken.
Would we respect this unique live or open a KFC?

Are we KFC to aliens?
