User of the Day for 21 March 2019: rubernck21

Personal background
I am a 31 y/o male, living in Kansas City, Mo. I am an electronics technician for a local amusement company (working on video games, dart boards, jukeboxes, pinball games, etc.), and I also work as a club/rave DJ.

I came across this site, back in '99 when a friend refered me. I looked it up, and installed the software. Along the way, i had problems, with having a phone modem, computer having to be reformatted, and upgrading my computer, hehehehe. But now that I have my cable modem hooked up, i can leave my computer on 24/7, and sit back. I love the idea that I am helping to find a possible solar system, black hole, whatever...
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
To tell the truth, i dont really know if life exists...I had a pretty strong christian upbringing, and am still kind of stuck on the fact about the bible...I still believe in the bible, but am curious to see what might be out there. As for benefits and dangers, I can only think of what has happened in movies, totally primitive thinking, but nonetheless important.

I hope that we find the other extraterrestrial life first, who knows if they will be friendly or not, perhaps we would be the aggressors...I am not totally sure if it would be a good thing...with all the movies saying that we would do autopsys, kill them because we do not understand, whatever.

As for the beacon, im not totally sure if it is a good thing...

I run the program, to help out...mostly to see if I was to find a planet or something, that I would like to name it...hehehehe...
