I own my own business, providing network services and security, Internet/web services, and Internet and homebased businesses. I'm a Star Trek fan and love SCI-FI. Electronics as a hobby, I hold an amateur radio license (KB8JHC). I have a Meade ETX-60AT telescope.

I've been a member since day one 5/17/99 or 5/18/99 depending on where you are.
We started a website and SETI team, first with friends and associates, then growing nationwide and then international. The website was created for a common point for all SETI utilities, statistics and links. Check out our website, sign our guestbook, join our list server, join our team! Spot_E.T.
Keep crunching!

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
YES, I think extraterrestrial life exists.
It might not be a cute little E.T., but I don't think it will be hostile and try to take over the Earth. I expect 'they' will be intelligent and a possible exchange of information and learning will happen.

I run SETI@home to do my part, and work to crunch as much data as possible, and get others to do the same.

"There are some hundred billion (1011) galaxies, each with, on the average, a
hundred billion stars. In all the galaxies, there are perhaps as many planets as stars, 1011 x 1011 = 1022, ten billion trillion. In the face of such
overpowering numbers, what is the likelihood that only one ordinary star, the
Sun, is accompanied by an inhabited planet? Why should we, tucked away in some
forgotten corner of the Cosmos, be so fortunate? To me, it seems far more likely that the universe is brimming over with life. But we humans do not yet know. We are just beginning our explorations. The only planet we are sure is inhabited is a tiny speck of rock and metal, shining feebly by reflected sunlight, and at this distance utterly lost."
