Profile: Gatekeeper

Personal background
Retired firefighter and business owner, used to be happily lost in Sin City (Las Vegas) now residing in Spudland (that's Idaho to you) and trying to adjust to the totally different lifestyle here.

Spent the last 31 years around computers (remember the IBM System 32?) and always thought I was fairly computer literate until the last 5 years or so. I can still build a kick-ass cruncher, but all this wireless/network/router stuff loses me quickly.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Started with Classic, got away, then came back 7 years ago. Love the challenge of making technology perform. I try to not get caught up in the competitive nature that many here seem to have, and hope that I'm making a contribution to something that will eventually produce meaningful results. Plus, the chance to follow so many great intellects in the forums is just icing on the cake!!!
