Growing up was an exciting time of my life. I grew up around aircraft and could identify them just by the sound they made. My first career was chasing aircraft with a fuel truck and did that for 12.5 years. I've fueled everything from a Cessna 150 to a Boeing 747 in those 12 years. I also towed aircraft with a tug, and Air-Starts were a common occurrence. I went on to get my Private Pilots license and got a total of 125 hours as P.I.C. My next career (short lived)was in electronics and got a A.A.S. degree from Denver Technical College in Electronics Engineering Technology. After I got into computers, I started doing PC repairs for work and expanded that skill by becoming a Certified Novell Engineer, and I've been doing that for 6 years now. Everyday I'm learing something new. Now I've got a home network and they're all running SETI.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
The mathematical probabilities exist where there are other life forms in the univers. I'm all for space exploration and look forward to each new discovery. Our first contact with an alien life form will probably be in the form of a radio signal. Our technology will have to advance a bit before that happens. The more users that run SETI, the sooner we'll be able to find the signal that sparks great excitement for mankind. I firmly believe that SETI holds the key to the doorway of the future. All we need to do is unlock the door and pass through it.
