Personal background
RampageIII - Incredibly handsome member of the SysOptUsers2002 Seti Team. Been crunching work units since 2001, but have been interested in SETI@Home for several years prior to my official registration date. I'm currently running SETI on a small network of 7 machines of various cpu speeds and maintain them with the help of my son. It's been quite a challenge at times, but has proved to be a fun project for us. Our team uses the Distributed Computing Forum if you're interested in our activities. We have a small group of dedicated seti-crunchers there that are enthusiastic and cheerful(for the most part). And there's plenty of friendly competition! I'll keep going as long as the project wants to last given the uncertainty of the funding. Hopefully, the funding will be there. So donate if you can! :)

P.S. Check our team website -
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
It would be interesting to find other beings from the universe as long as they aren't hostile. We have enough trouble trying to get along with our own species never mind a possibly superior species who may enslave us all. Hopefully they would be a benevolent society with the benefits of better health treatments for ailments we have been unable to conquer. From what I've heard we have been sending out signals since the earliest days of radio transmissions. SETI researchers have just concentrated their signal into something that may be more easily translated by other scientists. The information should be general in nature as to our climate and atmosphere, and ,of course, our desire to make friendly contact. I've been running SETI@home steadily for a couple of years now and have found a great deal of satisfaction in talking with others who share similar interests as I do. It's a fun project and decidedly less harmful than smoking (in public, that is).haha!
