My name is Kenneth Mortensen and i am an student at HTX in NykÃ¯Â¿Â½bing Falster in Denmark. I\\'m 24 years old and my Hobbies are Star Trek and Computers, and of course Seti@Home. I have been running Seti@Home for a little over 6.5 years now, I\\'ve have only produced about 9800 (in the classic version) Seti results, because my old computer was a little bit slow, but now I have bought a new one which is 3-4 times faster, and it has already created a lot of units..
And I bought 3 or 4 computers after that :)
And ofcourse that Denmark becomes the Country that have Completed most Seti results. And yes I know that it is impossible.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Yes ofcourse I believe that there are extraterrestrial life (and hopefully Intelligent), Ofcourse I hope that it is one of my Seti units that shows extraterrestrial life, but the chance of that is very slim. It's difficult to say when we will discover life outside Earth, It could take a very long time, But I just hope that it will be in the next 5-10 years. The benefits would be that we would know that we weren't alone, the dangers could be that they were hostile (if they were intelligent), or that they brought alot of Diseases to Earth.
I think that we should transmit a beacon, but I have no idea what it should say!
I run Seti@Home because I thought that it might as well be doing something when i weren't using it, Not that it is on 24*7.. And I think that it is great that normal peopple have the chance to find "Aliens"..
Oh and I just started to run Rosetta and Predicter too, because Seti had some problems, so I will run them when I cant get any Seti Units..
