Personal background
Hi My name is Bob Schonle (Aged, 77 yrs)
I am a retired Areospace engineer, and also a retired telecommunications engineer, specializing in system design for radio trilateration tacking systems. I am also a Radio Amatuer since 1952, My call is W6RRZ.
I have been a seti@home member since 2001.
I was also a seti boinc beta tester, and now am doing both seti classic and boinc-seti.

My first computer was an Apple II way back in 1978, the current ones are all three Pentium 4's at 3 gigs. What a heck of a difference in 25 years! Now we have more computational power at home than the fastest IBM mainframe in late 70's!
My email address is rschonle@aol.com. Anyone wishing to contact me may send an email, which will be replied to as quickly as possible.
Thanks, Have a great day!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I have been active running seti@home because I feel it is a good thing to support.
The Seti-Boinc project seems to be a decent idea, but there have been many problems with equipment, and some programming difficulties. I appreciate the imensity of the task, and feel it is worth my time, equipment use,(which by the way, becomes obsolete so fast now, that it must be run 24/7 in order to get your moneys worth!)and then you have the upkeep and electricity costs. I dont mind these even if my retirement is small, as I feel maybe I am contributing to something worth while.
I sure hope the project gets stable and procedes to some definitive conclusion, It would be a great thing tom find some something we do not know about today!

Keep up the good work, we may have some bad days, but they will eventually be a lot of good ones in there too!

Just always remember the old saying... no illegitimus non carborundum.

Bob
