|I'm 57, originally from Bristol, CT., but living and working in Prescott, AZ. now.|
Prior military; USAF, 1973-74; Colo. ArNG, 1975-78; USN, 1978-80
USAF: Precision Photographic Systems Repairman (AFSC 40430) - E-3
Colo. ArNG: Telecommunications Center Specialist (MOS 72E20) - SPC4
USN: Aviation Maintenance Administrationman ("AZ") 'striker' - AZAN (never got my 'crow')
I'm an Aircraft Mechanic by trade, but not currently doing that line of work; I've been working at a local electronics firm assembling components for the past 4 years now (as of 4/25/2010).
I'm also a "high-time" (about 110 hours over the last 30+ years) Student Pilot; although, logbook-wise, since I lost most of my old(er) logs in various moves around the country - and one that was the only thing stolen out of my car in Phoenix - I can only legally prove about 6 hours (current logbook). Eventually, I'd like to get my Private Pilot Certificate (that's why I became an Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic - if I can't afford to FLY 'em, maybe I can learn to FIX 'em and EARN the money to learn to fly 'em).
I'm not too knowledgeable about computers or IT; I've never been through any "formal" schooling in it - couldn't get grants, etc. to attend; what little I do know (and believe me, that ain't much!), I learned "OJT", so-to-speak (reading posts, talking to and asking questions of people I consider much more knowledgeable than me - almost everyone else, that is - things of that nature).
|Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home|
|I wouldn't mind being the person (or at least one of the people) who assist SETI with finding "ET".|
Personally, I liked the Classic SETI@home better than BOINC, but I'm slowly learning how to correctly "operate" the new program and by reading through the postings, about the Project and some of the BOINC terminology.
