Personal background
Joined the Seti@Home search in August 1999 right after cable modems became available in my area. An avid PC enthusiast, upgrades to my home computer have come swift and quick to allow my average processing time per work unit to come down from 30 hours to under 8 hours. Plenty of CPU cycles, broadband Internet, and this very worthy distributed computing project tie so neatly together that I show everyone entering my home what Seti@Home is. Engineer by day, amateur videographer and Adobe Premiere editor by night (a hobby). Run Seti@Home now on a Fujitsu C-7651 PIII laptop system and still average 7.5 hours per workunit!

Keep looking up........
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Extraterrestrial life, by all mathematical calculations and within or mental probability, must exist somewhere outside the Solar System. Maybe they are at the same point, technologically, as we are, or are ahead of us, have monitored Earth, and chose not to respond. Having broadcast radio signals, however faint, into space for over 50 years now, one of these days an interstellar radio listener may call the station and put in a request. For that day, and for an excellent project, do I donate my CPU cycles, energy, and promotion of Seti@Home.

Check out my picture - taken at sunset in front of my home on the night of January 27, 2002. Another beautiful Oklahoma sunset. One like this must exist elsewhere in the universe. Hope I have my camera handy when I visit.......

Peace to all.
