Well, it's been long years I'm working at aviation industry, in fact for an international private Airline company. Name Gokhan, I've graduated at Ukrain over Computer science and engineering. Guess that's enough detail.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1- Because there are some very clear points should be seen that our planet is getting older and older every year while bringing us several kind of disasters by nature's hand due to our faults for sure. I do expect from SETI and Nasa's Kepler/Chandra with VLArray find us another habitable planet for future colonization. Finding an ETI trace is just another sub-division of all these efforts which I don't pay attention enough, but welcome if something new.
2- SETI is kind of Gandalf for its industry guess I can say, which operated the most widest dish in the world for long time (well passively maybe). I can't say SETI has failed because of there weren't any kind of signal at outer-space. Found some but all ended up at happened speculation matters. I do expect to find another green-planet at all. Nothing less/more.
3- Guess I'm not an astronomer can tell you neither something that change your point of view nor scientific technical ways you used to understand/process signals. However, what if ETI is using another way of intercommunication way instead of classic radio-waves? Since it's very clear the universe by its nature is using the radio-wave sequences too, so means maybe ETI used to develop some other kind of intercommunication wave material which wouldn't getting corrupted while waving/running in the universe anyway~
