I've worked for various companies over the last
17 years. Currently, I work at ATT Labs as a
Principal Member of Technical Staff.
I participated in Seti@home for the first time
shortly after the program began. I received a

After having switched ISPs several times, I took
a hiatus from Seti@home, but have recently got
back into providing processing time. I currently
have only 3 systems processing for Seti@home, but
should be adding some others soon.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. The idea of finding a signal from an intelligent, extraterrestrial
source is fascinating. To be a part of the "team" which would find
such, would be a serious natural high. And, should it be that my
system would be one of those which actually processed the work load
that contained the signal would be an unparalleled honor.
2. This is very important research. Why it is not funded more seriously,

this study is the question of the age. Though the idea of communication
with an intelligent extraterrestrial species is quite problematic, due
to the distances involved, knowing that there are others out there
would change our world, and maybe help us resolve some of our more

current stats to those old stats. I'd love to be able to access my
Add a method for searching through the Stats page. It takes a very
long time to manually search through page after page of stats looking
for one's ranking.
