Amateur astronomer, own a 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain and take trips to Nebraska for their annual star party. Reading, board gaming with friends, Hot Rod shows, and electronic projects top some of the things I enjoy doing.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I always imagined planets around other stars and the possibility of life to be quite prolific. As I grew older Astronomy fascinated me and in 1996 got my first telescope. Building a new computer every six to eight months at the time I found out about the distributed computing program SETI that was showcased on a news story. I loved the classic screensaver client and would watch that monitor looking for the telltale spikes for hours. I drifted away from the Seti program when it went to the Boinc Client, I had issues with it and gave up on it. Now fast forward eleven years and I have started to crunch with Prime95 on my new AVX enabled Intels and while interesting was not as exciting as hunting the stars for intelligent life.
