Personal background
Hi! I am a product of the year 1970 and therefor an early victim of the home computer era (thanks to my elder brother - ATARI 600XL rules!). The only disadvantage was that I grew up in an area with a college that possessed the amazing number of 8 "Triumph Adler" PCs with 16KB RAM each ....... aaaaaargh!
Currently I live in Hamburg and I just love this city. I lived and worked in quite a few places all over Europe, but Hamburg surely makes it to my personal top 5. Go visit!
PCs are just a little hobby by now, but I still love taking them apart and marvel at the leftovers after reassembling...
Greetz to all,
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. I don't think - I know. I see one of them every moring in the mirror. To discover me just drop by for a mug of Sgnkroargt (the equivalent to your terrestrial coffee). The benefit will be me having a great snack with my Sgnkroargt - the danger is luckily entirely yours. But remember, your sacrifice will not be in in vain. You guys are even better than cream-puffs...
2. First of all I think you should not send any kind of signal! And if you really must, it should contain information that earthlings are not really nutritious. I mean, who would like to have another freak oozing around, feeding on (MY!) coffee titbits.
3. Because I can. It makes good sense to me to distribute workloads like that and I have leftover cpu potential. Last but not least it ist fun, too. I can compete with other users and I learn a lot about the sky and the constellations. And maybe...
