I want a faster computer _just_ so I can do more SETI units and beat fr0g m4n, this is my goal in life.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Does extraterrestrial life exists ? I dunno hey.. the shear number of factors that have come together for our planet to hold life makes me a little skeptical, but theres so much out _there_ that I won't say a definite no. When will we find it can't really be answered, today ? tomorrow ? 40 years ago ? not a clue. But if we were to find something, im not sure of the benefits but I sure hope _they_ have their s**t together, cause if humans get too close to them we're sure to screw them up as much as we have screwed up our planet and ourselves.
A beacon aye.. mite be good.. but if there's anyone out there looking and theyre anything like us.. forget it.. we've got enough problems with our world, how about we fix this place up first. Information.. there's too much to tell, we couldn't possibly give an accurate description of ourselves.. maybe just a warning.. I mean, the human race is good n all but we don't have a good track record, I think our vibration needs to be raised a few notched before we interract with other species.
I run SETI@HOME because I can, I barely use my comp anymore, just the occasionaly chat, yet it is on most of the day.. what better way to use the spare processing power ?
