Profile: Foxdie

Personal background
I'm a college student from the West Midlands in the UK, currently 19 years old.

I love anything that requires a current to operate, I love repairing things too. I'm a furry (species: British Wild Fox) and I'm quite social and huggable :)

In my spare time I'm usually found on Furnet IRC, listening to Digitally Imported's Trance online shoutcast radio station, generally tinkering about with computers.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I started running SETI because I have a bad habit of leaving my PC on 24/7, running SETI actually benefits me because it keeps my CPU at 100% and it heats my bedroom up nicely :)

I'm not sure if there is intelligent life out in the universe, personally I'd like to think there is, I just hope they're a peaceful crowd when / if one day the Human race makes contact (or vice versa).
