Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
The shear mathematics pertaining to the number of galaxies and stars dictates that there is life somewhere else in the universe - especially since after 12 billion years, we've come to be in less than half of that. The problem, as I see it, as that as time moves forward, so do the vast distances between stars. As such, even a very advanced civilization that has been around for a few billion years may not be able to reach another star, never mind another galaxy.
I believe we should constantly search, and send out, signals to herald that we are here - even if they are not heard/seen for millions of years.
