Personal background
Taught Middle and High School for 32 years (Math, Science, Biology). Retired in 1999. Was also a Deputy Sheriff for 13 years ending up as the Chief-Deputy under Sheriff Cathy Crumbley, who was on Johnny Carson's show some years ago.) Spent 31 years as a volunteer fireman in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Family has owned the same farm in East-Central Ohio since the 1850's. Now I pursue my hobbies: Flying (private pilot and own a 1975 Cessna 172-M), help friends with computer problems, helping my brother renovate the old farm and reclaim it from the multi-flora rose which took over some years ago, and mow grass at the Cadiz airport in the summer. (Cadiz, OH 8G6) Also spend time as a member of the Harrison County Airport Authority and a member of the Belmont County 911 Board. Have worked with "played with" computers since doing Masters work at Sewanee University, Sewanee TN, in 1970's. Born in 1941, still learning.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Yes, there is extraterrestrial life. As it was so well put in the movie, "It would be an awful waste of space if no one else were out there" or something like that. The benefits could be awsome and so of course are the dangers. We have to find out either way what else existes in the Universe. It may be the one topic big enough to unite the varied people of out little planet.

We should transmit both simple and complex signals. Anyone who reads the signals has got to be at least as advanced as we, and hopefully, more civilized. We can not help but learn from others.

Running SETI@home is, if nothing else, a good way to use a computers full power, rather than letting it sit and idly shove bubbling fish across the screen. (Note: I dislike useless screen savers) The project should go on until some one finds some thing, or someone finds us.
