Profile: Diego -=Mav3rik=-

Personal background
My name is Diego. I'm from Montevideo-Uruguay, but I've lived almost all my life in Buenos Aires-Argentina.
I joined this great project that captured my imagination back in June 1999. I'm 31 years old now and after quite some time I checked SETI@home's webpage again and what do you know...? New client? What is this BOINC thing? ;)

I'm up and crunching again, contributing with my small share of work.

I work and try to finish my computer science studies on the side. ;)
My hobbies include soccer, biking, reading (mostly sci-fi), programming and listening to rock music.

My regards to everyone involved in this project and... keep crunching!

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI@home because I'm one of those freaky people that refuse to believe that we are alone in this god forsaken universe. I just loved the idea behind the project and the idea of a huge cluster of computers processing info for a greater cause, for science. Besides, the original slogan "hey, your computer can be the first one to detect alien signals" is kind of attractive, isn't it? =)

I think it's great and I DO believe it's going to be a success someday. (that being detecting a real alien signal and thus putting and end to the ancient question of whether or not we are alone as inteligent beings).

My suggestion to the SETI team is: Never give up. ;)
