Personal background
I am an Australian male aged 55. I have been forced into retirement due to a heart attack 3 years ago. My interests are mainly in computers, in particular in graphic designing and I am at present trying to self-teach myself web page creation and designing(the java side of it will have to wait a little longer I'm afraid. This poor old brain of mine is still trying to come to terms with the basics---but who knows, maybe one day I'll get there).
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Q. Do you think extraterrestrial life exists? If so, when and how will humans discover it?
A. YES--I believe that there are no reasons why other life forms should not exist else where. After all, the universe is a really big place and we humans have only just begun to explore beyond our planet. As to when and how, well that is in the hands of the "Gods".

Q. Should humans transmit a beacon for others to find? If so, what information should we send?
A. I believe so. If we are able to make contact with other beings, provided we or they are able to find a way to communicate, I'm sure we would be able to exchange a lot in the way of new technologies. I don't believe the movies when ALL UFO's are portrayed as the enemy trying to overtake our earth. I believe they (like us) come in peace endeavouring to learn. The message we send out should be along the lines of a peaceful encounter with the intension of helping one another along the great journey of discovery.

Q. Why do you run SETI@home?
A. I think the answers I have given above pretty much sums up my reasons for running SET@home. If I can contribute in some way(no matter how small)then I am happy to do so. If this contribution should in some way help to met other life forms then so much the better.
