Personal background
I'm a Freshman at San Jose State University in California. I've been around computers and building computers since I was 8, but I'm rather new to SETI@Home and BOINC. I just built a pretty high end gaming rig, but between school, work, music, and other activities I don't have an awful lot of time to game anymore. So I figured I could donate some computing power towards finding ETs! So that is why I'm here, to add my computer to SETI@home's network of data-crunchers looking for little green men.

In my free time I like to make and record my own music, practice photography, and, of course, occasionally play games. I play a bunch of different games, but mostly FPSs and RPGs (Battlefield 3 and Skyrim being the two main ones right now). My Steam ID is GuitarHead, feel free to add me if your looking to play some games.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI@Home because I'm simply fascinated by space and ETs. The gigantic question marks that loom around those two subjects are like magnets - they draw me in. I want to learn more but eventually everyone hits a wall, and beyond that wall is speculation, theories, and non-science. Since I don't have time to lurk the dark corners of the internet and read forums about ETs and space, I decided that donating computing power to SETI would be the best way to promote the search for ETs in a proper, scientific way. Speculating non-science and theories is pointless when one can instead do something that actually might bring you a little closer to finding what you want. And for me, that something is crunching numbers for SETI.
