Spent my childhood learning about electronics and mechanical devices, found computers at high school and could imagine the possibilities. I have found that my imagination was superseded somewhat.
Joined the NZ Airforce as an Avionics technician and spent a bit over a decade doing work that I found challenging and worthwhile, but decided to get out when the government decided to do some stupid moves with the manning and strike wing.
I now own and run my own computer firm in Hamilton doing consulting and manufacturing. I also design small electronic circuits for odd applications.
If you manage to visit my website, youâ€™ll find all sorts of other bizarre things I get up to, paintball being one of them.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Personally I believe there is life out there, but I have suspicions that major governments of the world already have made contact and are probably conditioning the world for acceptance before releasing confirmationâ€¦. Well itâ€™s a theory.. :-)
Who knows when weâ€™ll make contact publicly?
Hopefully in my lifetime.
