Personal background

I'm 52 married with 7 children,interested in space, technology, and of course computing. I've been invloved in computing since the age of 13 when I was at school and made a living out of it (well it surprised me aswell!!!). Other than that just working away around the house when it suits, but it never suits the wife because usually I want to do something else when the wife says paint that door or something like that. Still it I thinks great to be involved in a worldwide project like this, and you never know you might just find E.T. when you download that WU.

Running the following systems:-

A p3-667 dual processor workstation, crunches a WU every 8-10hrs per cpu running boinc -- now retired

Compaq Ap400 professional workstation dual p2-400 393mb crunching a wu per cpu about every 11-14hrs (running BOINC) in need of replacement -- now retired

Dual compaq Ap500 p3-866 running Boinc W2k 512MB still chugging away

Now for some more modern stuff...

Hp DX2200 Pentium 4 with threading technology whoop 2gb and returns a couple a day

Dell 9010 i5 4 cores Win 10 fairly speedy box ....

They all chug away quite happily

Also I have my own group MHAG so if you wish to join us sign on up.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
My thoughts on SETI@Home well it's damm good project that everyone involved should take some pride in taking part in, as projects go there can't be that many projects that can say that are truly worldwide and anyone with a computer and a modem can take part in.

My thoughts on SETI, well I do believe life is out there, whether it's like us, similar or totally bizarre, we might find out tomorrow or in a 1000yrs who knows, but if we don't look we won't know, plus it will drive man to enhance technology so we might just find life quicker.
