After having been born in Switzerland I grew up in Mexico for 14 years. My family and I moved to Venezuela and after 2 years I went to Switzerland.
I started programming in 1986, while developing tools for industrial robots in Switzerland. 4 years later I started developing database applications for "Progress", a 4GL RDBMS in it's early versions on UNIX and XENIX character mode only. Today I am programming in it's more advanced version on GUI and ChUI.
Today I count something around 37 years, I lost count along the line, but it's somewhere there, as my wonderful wife Pat tells me.
A year ago I moved to the USA where I had met Pat and we got married.
She's the most wonderful Angel in the universe. I love her.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I absolutely believe there is live beyond. I actually know there is, but knowing it and having proof are two different things ;o)
Anyway, I am sure that the Human Race (Earthlings) will someday make contact with Extra Terrestrians. I hope it will be a peaceful contact, and that the wars here on this planet won't make them think all Humans are aggressive.
