Profile: Cesium_133*

Personal background
Born 17 March 1973 Charlotte, NC, USA. Reside there again after living in Triangle, NC (4 months); Matthews, NC (2.5 years); and Butner, NC (2 years).

I'm 1/4 Hungarian, 1/16 or so Cherokee Indian, probably some German, and definitely English/Irish/Scottish. I can be a constipated limey, a neat-freak/detail-obsessed Kraut, a war-loving bohunk (UFC rocks!) or a loud mick with the best of them (note my b'day). I also hold my liquor well :)

Lest you think I have any political correctness in me at all, my favorite sports teams are the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Braves (and UNC Tarheels). I also like the Kansas City Chiefs to a degree, and the Chicago Blackhawks are ok with me due to their storied history.

I travel, play hearts, spades, and Texas Hold-Em, read, watch the news on TV and read it online, love sports, and collect stamps and coins. Keeping up with politics and religious issues are pursuits of mine, and gastronomy (astronomy, too, hence being here) is definitely down my alley.

I sell women's and children's finer fashions on eBay under the username â–ºthetrendywomanâ—„. Mention you saw me here and get 1/2 off shipping to the USA, 1/4 elsewhere :)
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I have experimented with most DC projects offered by BOINC, seeing which ones produced the most results and were most deserving of my unused flops. I've circulated my flops among several such programs, mostly medical-based, while working with POEM and Rainbow Tables...

...though I'll go with looking for li'l green men sometimes. Why not? All knowledge is good- though I stay away from most math projects. Mathematical conundrums are fine to study, but limited in application at present. And that's really what the rest of everything important is- applied science. Let's use what's relevant and solid now to find li'l green men. Math is man's quantified exploration and recitation of theory and hypothesis on paper; you need facts to apply to your math, not math to deduce facts. That's putting the cart before the horse, the modern phrase for which being reverse engineering.

Incidentally, the pretty lady you see is not I, but one Hayley Westenra. She's a classical crossover singer from Christchurch, NZ, and has perhaps the best voice on the planet today. She is the biggest entertainment act in the history of New Zealand, and worldwide is 4x platinum in total sales. Check her out... but remember, gentlemen, I saw her first... :D
