Here is an early photo of me with an alien friend of mine, or is that one of my brothers? Sure, it was a long time ago, but putting up a current photo was just too darn boring. I'm no doctor or teacher, but simply an average Joe. I work an average job with an average life.
God do I love it that way!
Here's another in my endless chain of frivolis fantasy endevors. Will I become bored of this & move onto the next excapist act? Heck yeah! That's the story of my life. Ain't life sweet?
Hats off to all you other data crunchers. Work unit by work unit we'll slowly get there & when we get close to finishing SETI'll have something even bigger to crunch. Hopefully we'll find something that can get them some government funding.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
It's amazing the amount of computer time that's already been spent analyzing this data. Maybe NASA has a thing or two to learn from SETI. Keep on collecting the data & we'll crunch those numbers, but one day I hope you give us something astonishing to uncover. I came to SETI late (March 2003), but hope to catch up. Currently I've got between 2 & 3 computers analyzing data every chance I get. At least 2 crunch 24 hours a day.
Maybe we won't discover sentient life this way, but as with all experimentation; it's worth the look-see. Like many, I have dreams of galaxy colonization with mining & supply shuttles running here & there with trading outposts in every conceivable direction. There are only so many resources on this planet & terriforming a couple of others might not be a bad idea. Why vacation in Paris when one could go to Mars?
What is the reality? All this crunching will most likely never find anything. Mankind will never colonize beyond Antarctica. But dreaming is the spark that makes the impossible possible. I've got my fingers crossed & a few spare ports in my hub. As I aquire more computers then I'll keep adding onto the chain. Crunch my little computers, crunch!
