Personal background
I am a computer programmer/sysadmin for enterprise unix systems.

I am heavily involved in Democratic politics at the local, state, and national levels.

I am an Amateur Extra class licensee.

I repair pre-1950's radios, and sometimes TV sets.

I have the United States mirror site for the largest electron tube datasheet site on the Internet (over six gigs of datasheets).

My primary home computer is a P4 3.06 GHz HT based on the AOpen AX4GE-Tube motherboard (electron tube audio preamplifier on the motherboard, currently using a Mullard 6DJ8/ECC88 tube manufactured in 1965). I'm probably the only person in the world doing seti@home with an electron tube equipped computer :)

I also design and tinker with various electronic toys.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Gawd, I hope we find some intelligent life out there, because there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
