I live in Darwin, Capital of the Northern Territory, Australia.
To me the surrounding countryside is a tropical wonderland, hot & humid weather but beautiful lush green vegetation in our "Wet season" and more pleasant weather, but not as beautiful vegetation in our "Dry season".
I maintain/repair radio and television transmitters for a living, travelling throughout the Northern Territory and into the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Our furthest road distance travelled for work is approximately 1900 Km (1180 Miles) one way. Some of our transmitters are not accessible by road and we must fly by commercial and charter aircraft.
I enjoy tinkering with computers and anything electronic, my current project is setting up a solar collector/battery/inverter system to reduce my electricity bill and eventually large enough to power all my computers.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe we are not alone, and it will only be a matter of time ( maybe a very long time) before we humans discover another civillisation among the stars. My contribution to the search may be small but I still consider it to be a worthwile effort.
