My name is Tim Bowers, im currently studying Network Computing at Coventry University in Coventry(Strangly enough) UK. I also study in my spare time (which i have little of) many random and diverse subjects. These range from computer hardware and software, to psychology and even phliosphy. I also have a strong interest in art, yet i never value any of the artwork i peronally create.

I run many Distrobuted Computing Projects, and random other projects which interest me. I have a hate of seeing computers go to waste, either because people dont know how to use them, or because people have stupidly overpowered machines which they really dont need!.

I like to educate and help others to see how much of an impact computers make on our lives, and help them also learn to accept computers and a real part of what is becoming day to day life.

I welcome everyone and anyone to contact me, should it be because they are bored, or because they disagree with something i say. I hope that if anyone does disagree with the things i say that they let me know, so that i can have the chance to change my views if theirs make more sense than the current views i hold.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run seti@home for my own reasons, i run it because it was the first DC project that i ever ran. Its also the project which i currently hold the most stats in for my self, so for some reason i continue to try and increase this.

I think the project is very worthwhile, just "incase" we do find something, and if we dont, at least our cpu cycles didn't go to waste. We spend way to much time waiting in this lifetime, to let our chances pass us by, this allows us to reach out and grab them!.

As we all want, we want to do it faster, and have much more feedback. However, having this and maintaining a level of usibility which is needed when seti covers such a huge user base is increadibilty dificult so i guess it wont be happening any time soon =]
