HI. my name is Shane Cormier. I am new to this but not new to the love for this. I never realized this was available until today someone told me about it. I have seen tv shows, well documentaries on SETI and people doing this but they all had thier own satellites, home made of course. I am new to fast access internet connections so this will be a lot of fun. I am 26 years old with a wife and a 3 month old baby. I live in Lafayette Louisiana. I own 2 snoball stand/snack shops. I will update this later as i get more info on what im doing here. I have a feeling this will take up a lot fo my time now. I would like to join a group and become more active in this. I have had 2 passions as a young adult and one of those was to be an astronaut, but unfortunately when i was 11 i was struck by a car and had 3 skull fractures on my right side. This meant no more Air Force and learning to fly a shuttle for me. Well at that time thats what i was told because of the pressure could crush my skull again. Anyways enough about my past. If anyone wants to inviteme to thier group and help me get started or know of any local groups please email me. I am very excited about this. If all goes well i am going to set up my second computer for nothing but this. Right now i have a Dell P3 750 with 384 mb ram and a 60gb drive.I also have a celeron 433 with 224 mb ram and a 12 gb drive. Please tell me what i can do with these and this project. I couldnt be more excited with anything about the internet than now. Thanx for having this for me and others like me. I was a young astronaut as a child too. I have included a picture of my wife and child and of course, me.
Now I have been a member for a few weeks now....1 computer just hasnt been doing it for me so i got hooked up with a hub and combles a 2nd nic card for my main pc...learned how to setup a working...well psuedo-working network in just a few hours...i may not even uy a router if i can manually do the same thing what the router would do...plus i learn something new this way...as wehre i
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Yes i definately believe. I had one experience when i was a child. Two friend of mine and i were looking up at the stars one night and the moon with a small telescope. I was about 13 or so. We noticed somehing that looed like a star that moved. Well all of a sudden it split into two then 4. Then i took the scope and it went to 8. Everything sat for a min and my other friend wanted to see so he looked and he was amased how all of a sudden they all went in different directions.
I belive that we will find aliens when we can further travel in space or when they want us to find them. We all know recordings of ETs and UFOs date back to the bible times.
Yes i think sending info for them to find is a great idea. I think we should send them info about us. Like our genes and what we are like. I am going to participate in the project that will send up info about different families if i can remember the site info.
I run it because it has a been a passion for years but never had a connection nor really knew about this particular project for simpltons like me. I think its a great idea and hope to become very invloved in it. I am willing to participate in this further if there are local groups here or near me.
