I'm a 22 y/o PSU Senior Telecomm major who is just about finished with school and looking for work in a market that is currently restructuring. I guess I should have taken the job offers back when I was graduating high school. I think I got into the Telecomm major at the wrong time because they just started implementing computer technology courses over the past couple semesters so I've only been able to get a few of them and they're about as structured as the IST program here. Some how I shacked up with two roomates in the same major but all of us have taken the degree in a different direction. One is going for broadcasting, one for video editing and I'm going for computer/internet policy, hardware, software and networking - I've done most the of learning on my own time. But, basically that's me. Now I'm just giving up some extra cycles to the SETI project, studying for class and worrying about my future in the job market. Well, hope your day is better than mine. Keep crunching. - Josh (Rapter)
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I've been running SETI@home since 1999. I've been a long time sci-fi fan and would find it hard to believe if we were the only life out there. Once we start getting longer and more frequent flights into space we will then start finding other life. I think we just need more time to explore. I run SETI@home because I have the extra cycles, and heck, if I help to find ET then so be it. I think it would be well worth the small effort expended on downloading the SET@home software.
