I'm 30, I'm from England in the Midlands. I enjoy anything to do with computers.
I have SETI@Home running on about 8 computers off and on, with 1 computer running it 24/7, its great!! I participate in other BOINC Projects and am proud to have beta tested Einstein@Home :P
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I do think extraterrestrial life exists and I am fairly certain we will find it within the next 100yrs MAX! I think the discovery would have more benefits, such as technology, than drawbacks.
I think humans should send a beacon out because we are looking for one of another race so why should we not be sending one in return??
I run SETI@Home because I think it is a valuable cause which should have as much piratical attention devoted to it as possible. I believe that helping SETI@Home is providing valuable data to discover E.T. life, that eventually we will find.
I think the project is run very very well, I cannot understand why there is so little funding available, is the whole world going mad?? Perhaps one way of raising money would be to have adverts on the SETI@Home software? Just a suggestion.
I'm also involved in other BOINC projects including LHC, Einstein, Rosetta. :D
