|We tried back in '03 and off and on again over the years to get going with SETI, but I kept getting lost building PC's as a hobby and sending them to people (retired vet's in long term care)and then just using what we have built up to watch movies on or go to a place where all friends are and talk. My wife is disabled and has been in a wheelchair since 1986, I met her in a hospital in 1995 when I was a Licensed Nurse in the emergency department, and we started our journey in the spring of 1996 (we've been together 18 years and married in 2001.). We love to travel, and we don't do the "2 day 3 night" things, full 2 weeks when we go: Maui, Cancun, Oregon Coast, Las Vegas (The stratosphere, and yes, we did everything you can do in Vegas, even "The Hitching Post Wedding Chapel". Researched it and found about it's history and decided on it instead of where all the stars go. We had a real preacher instead of a 10 minute get one on line certificate/license and file $17.00 with the county, and anybody can be a "preacher", including "Elvis". We didn't want one of those type thing's.) She has an awesome PC. She picked packed and delivered a ASUS M3A78-CM, AMD 6000+ Athlon x64 dual core, AMD 5450 ATI 512 video card, 8 gig's of KVR 1066, dual channel . It's sweet, SETI running at the same time as Netflix™, all wrapped up in an old solid aluminum X-Case in alien green light and is almost to bright to sleep near.|
We are both retired I guess I had to take an early out from the emergency room, put in 15 years, but worked about 23 in those 15, needed fresh air and had a tile roofing co. for a few years and needed even fresher air so I went back to almost what I did after the Marine Corps, went drilling for natural gas as a derrick hand for a company that drills here in the coast range, Mist Ore. The only place in the world that could expect rain in some form or fashion on a daily basis. I ended up remodeling my whole lower back and that just finished it up. Getting ready for my next surgery, both knees replaced, am not looking forward to that, but bed and a laptop, and just ignore whatever they are doing me in PT, be some where else mentally, and remind my self it's just boot camp-part 2/40 years later-and see what it's like from the "patient" point of view. Wife has agreed to let me use her and her chair as a walker if need be. Maybe. She can really wheel extremely fast at times, the mall want's to impose a speed limit.
More to follow.............
|Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home|
|Really want to know if they are transmitting, even if it is not out towards us, might just pick up on some ET disc jockey spinnin' some wanna-be "ET-Elvis" to his 0200 listeners and fan's and maybe a stalker who wants 'ol "Dave" to "play Misty for ET". Sounds kinda close any way.....|
If they are there, 240 light years away, who says they really are smarter, faster, or can make a better burrito than we can? Make an elevator to earth? Build a building to the heavens? Or some wild thing like running into our self's as a dimension brushes against momentarily? Asimov. Scientist and science fiction.
ET, he/it/that/those/them/she/carbon based/ silicon based/mammal etc./mineral/gaseous/or anything I may have missed not wanting to be EToliticaly incorrect, might be just like anyone of us on the entire planet-including those that have come and gone and returned as fossil fuel.
Just a thought. Like a can that has a missing label, you just don't know 'till you open it.
Happy hunting-stay safe.
