Personal background
Hi Everyone,

Despite the sound of my nickname I am actually a female!
Right now I'm a graduate student at New York University,I'm studiyng Interactive Television & TCP/IP stuff. It's pretty interesting actually. I hope to oneday work in the iTV field somewhere in Europe. London, Amserdam, or Paris maybe.I have lived in Sydney, Australia for a couple years forr few years so I have an affinity for all things Aussie.My hobbies include travel, reading, rollerblading and seeing movies. I also like skiing, but I am only OK at it. I have travelled extensively through europ -- mostly wester Europe and the UK. I hope someday to travel through southeast Asia and Africa.

I don't have any favorite TV shows because Ihaeenivn out side t nte Stteorthe as olyers-I dn really know what's on TV. There are a few foreign shows I've grown to like -- "Night and Day" (UK) in particular. I also like programs on the History channel

I first time I heard of SETI I was working for a start-up web development firm in New York Everyone there was using SETI and soon so was I. I'm some fascinated how people can come together in hopes of a positive result. It almost gives me hope for humanity in general... almost.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I like the idea of SETI. I've talked several of my friends into trying this program as well. One thing I would LOVE to change/ adjust about SETI is the interface -- it is very plain and Star Trek like -- perhaps that is part of the appeal.

It would be nice if we had a choice of interfaces. I'd like to see a more "feminine" approach to the interface -- so differnt colors and a differtn pattern. I'm not so much a a designer but you have to admit that this isn't the pretties interface -- although it was pretty cool in 1999.

I don't tink humans should ransmit a beacon for others to fine. Maybe it's the xenophbic part of me. If there is life out there I think as a planet we are better off finding searching for signals rather than sending them
