Personal background
I work servicing computers, having developed my own business after my third redundancy and being overqualified & too old to employ.
I enjoy my relationships with my clients at a level I never had before in the corporate world and feel like its one big holiday. Poor but very happy.
I live in New Zealand a country free in many ways.
I have a wonderful partner and two charming daughters, one who has warmed my heart, is using computers to help people learn.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe life exists everywhere.
Discovery is a stumbling journey and unless we try we don't learn.
Benefits would be that of a bigger existence.
Danger would be that they are having worse problems that us.

We will eventually be found so I think we should keep the message simple and truthful, however ensure that we are not put out of our misery.

I support the existence of life elsewhere and we humans have evolved over a long time. Finding something would be extraordinary.

I think the project is sensible in its concept.

My suggestions would be that the scanner be based off planet, say the moon or satellite, to remove the huge amount of RFI that seems to plague the results.

Seti also seems to have lost heart, looking at the posted results (scans recently done, none since November 2003)
