I have a room in my house that is chest high wall to wall computers and radios. I can go in there for days and not get bored.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
As big as the Universe is, we just cannot be the only ones in residence and awake. I am not convinced that we are even awake. It feels a lot more like most of us are sleep walking and it is becoming increasingly difficult differentiating between the children and the adults. Back to Seti@home I am doing this because I believe that there are other beings out there somewhere and this is one thing I can to do help find them. Thinking about my everyday life it has occured to me that I know several people at work who just cannot be from Earth.
