We currently live in Telopea, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.
Simon [Sabrewulf] is currently working as an Electronics Engineer and IT Administrator for a small electronics firm in the leafy suburb of Mortlake.
Sabel [Sibi] is currently working as Second-in-charge at a Cafe in the also leafy suburb of Concord.
We both enjoy life, food, sitting around watching tv (especially Red Dwarf videos), playing PS2 games, being both nerdy and geeky, linux hacking, and just generally bumming around :)
Our hobbies include astronomy (we are both members of The Sutherland Astronomical Society), cooking and eating, and pretty much all the stuff mentioned above...
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1) Does ETL exist? Well, personally I believe it does. Whether or not it is intelligent in ways that we can understand is another matter.
2) The sending of information is already being done by radio and tv... Whether it has the lasting power to travel long distances in space without being affected
by the CBR (cosmic Background Radiation) or other cosmic noises is yet to be seen. It may be pointless trying to send information until we know more about where to
3) We run SETI on several computers. It is great technology that allows the use of resources which would otherwise be wasted. Being a science freak and a bit of a computer freak, anything that is technologically interesting and includes science and astronomy is something I'll give a go.
