Personal background

I am Luca, an italian guy 38 years old. I live in Milan, north of Italy, and I am a computer programmer. I am married, but I don't have any kids (at least for now). Computers changed my life; when I was 18, I drifted through life and I didn't know what to do for living. But one day my father gave me a PC: it was an Apple II with 48K of RAM! It was "love at first sight". I quickly realized that computers could be what I was looking for. Some years later I bought my first MS-DOS clone with 640K of RAM and a 20MB hard disk! I also purchased an acoustic coupler and I was one of the few italian people who used Internet in 1982. In a very short time my hobby became a job. Now computer is still one of my main hobbies, but I also like to travel and to climb and I am very interested in astronomy.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I am sure that extraterrestrial life exists. The universe is so big that it's impossible to think we are alone. Maybe they are very far, but I cannot believe that a tiny planet like earth is the only living planet in a so big universe!
Generally I think positive and I don't want to think about evil aliens. If someone in the space is so advanced to be able to reach us, why he should have bad intentions? I don't think a very advanced and civilized life could be interested in conquering, capturing and killing people. Maybe they already discovered earth, but probably we are not yet ready to meet them.
I run SETI@home to contribute in the quest of searching extraterrestrial life and I hope to live enough to see some results. I was amazed about this project and I absolutely certain of its effectiveness.
The only suggestion I have is to better promote this project. I found the SETI internet address by chance, reading an italian magazine, and none of my friends knew that. Now I am trying to spread this address, but there are many people who don't know anything about it, but could be very interested!
