I am a 51 year old Computer Engineer with experience in the telecom industry. My computing interests include critical systems, high availability systems, and system security. I am also interested in robotics and autonomous systems.
Other interests include Astronomy, Physics, Planetary Science, Aviation, and Biology.
By the way, I took my profile picture myself with a Meade 114mm Newtonian reflector telescope and a Pentax Optio 30 digital camera.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Why? Because it's cool.
This is not just a "search for ET" experiment, it's also a computer science experiment. This is the bleeding edge of massively distributed super computing. How could I not participate?
