First Answer: no, i'm not a Pyrofreak or anything :P.
I was born and live in Toronto, Canada, 16 years old, no job...(yet, searching tho! if only that was as easy as SETI :P, but i'd be hoping for more results ;)), I do mostly computer gaming and I like to keep up with technology. While I hope it keeps getting better, I also want to know how to use it!
I think SETI is the perfect way to spend a few spare processor cycles. I love the stars! I alwyas stare up at them on a crystal clear night and I wonder how many WU's i got done today ;). just kidding! I wonder whats out there, undiscovered planets and the like. Everytime I stare up there, I wish i had a telescope (it's on my Christmas wishlist! ;) )
Happy crunchin' people!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Do I believe in aliens, or ET life?: yes of course I do. It's a big universe, and were only tucked away in a corner of it. chances are there would have to be another Earth like planet containing life. I hope we discover it quite soon (err..I hope I discover it :P) i believe we would have a myriad of benefits from sharing knowledge and technology with each other. (assuming they are not hostile or something..Am I getting too trekish?)
