Born in Texas in 1951, USAF retired, hobby:model rocketry.
My main Windows computer crashes about every two years. When it does I buy an new one and then load Linux on the old one and dedicate it to SETI@Home. I now have 4 old computer on SETI@Home and my main computer is using 50% of its CPU time in the search.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI so we can find evidence of intelligent life in at least one place in the universe.
I think SETI@Home is a fantastic way to use the excess computing capacity on the planet in a constructive and voluntary way.
I would like to see SETI better funded and never run out of tasks to process.
