Personal background
Hi, My name is Ron. I am 34 years young (lol). I was born in the Phillipines. I reside now in Virginia. I moved to GUAM in 1978 at the age of 7. Barely knowing a word of English. About 7 yrs later on a clear night. My friends and I were playing hide-n-seek outside my house when I noticed what I thought were lights from an airplane. My father was in the Air Force so we lived near a base. I spent many nights laying on the grass in my backyard just glaring at the stars. And I even though I was only 14 at the time, I was pretty familiar with what airplane lights look like compared to helicopter lights,etc.. Well back to my story. I saw some lights above me. I just stood there looking up at these lights trying to figure out what I was looking at. It seem to have consist of about 10 or so lights in a circular manner. These lights never flash or had brilliant colors. They were just plain white. The strange thing was as these lights were moving slowly above me the center was hollow as I could see the background to whatever it was passing. There was no noise of any kind from this object. Even though at that age I really couldn\\'t tell height very good. I\\'d say these lights were about 10 stories high. I just couldn\\'t believe what I was seeing. I was just in awe. I really wish I could go back in time at my present age and see these lights again to maybe have a better understanding at what I saw that night. Whether or not what I saw was from beyond our planet....on that night I became a believer in other intelligent life beyond ours.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI@home because I do believe that there are other forms of intelligent life beyond what we have seen on this planet.

I think it's amazing how many other people use their computers to form one big community in search of other life out there. I am glad that the SETI project does exist because I believe someday we will make contact or be contacted from other intelligence from beyond Earth. I hope I am still alive when I see it and hopefully it doesn't end up being unfriendly. Keep up those work units everyone.

My only suggestions is that there is some kind of technical support for all those people who have run previous versions of seti@home who have forgotten their passwords or now have a different email account and can't quite remember their old e-mail account...to get credit for those previous work units. I tried transferring my classic seti work units and it would say I have to put in an email address which I already have.
