I am a forty-something male, I have been working in the I-T field in Rochester, NY for 10 years now. I am a proud member of the Asknick! Team. I had over 8500 work units on Seti@home classic, and assisted in the beta testing of BOINC. I am running homemade AMD based computers. Other than searching for E-T, I enjoy collecting Old Radio Shows from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. I like digital photography, and new age phylosophy.
Nick (Francesco) is the founder of Soundbytes, the longest running computer support program in America (http://www.soundbytes.org). If you are searching for a team to join, we would be happy to have you join our BOINC effort.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe there is some intellegent life out there, somewhere. Maybe theyre already here, and living next door. I just hope we dont attract the Cylons, or the Borg. Since going public, BOINC has had more than its share of problems. I hope Berkeley is able to stabilize this project.
