Personal background
Born 10-9-62, St. Joseph Missouri, currently work in Napa California. Hobbies are playing Starfleet Command on gamespy, and my interest are pretty much anything related to science fiction. Also have been playing DAOC alot on the merlin server, pretty kewl game. Recently upgraded my computer to a Pentium 4 2gig,then to a 2.8 gig and 768 meg of ram DDR. Sure beats the heck out of the pentium 200 mhrtz system i used for years. Just updated again, on july 1,2005, with an amd 4000, twice as fast as the 2.8 gig pentium i used to run, running on a pci express mother board, and 1 gig of ram. On Sept 15 2009 upgraded again to the new intel i7 950 quad processor with hyper threading, and 6 gig of ram patriot viper. My os vista system sees it as 8 processors running at ounce, outstanding performance in number crunching the work units, very happy indeed. Also added a new vid card, not the best, but works fine all the same, the GTS 250 with 1 gig ram, and a new power supply 1k watts.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
My personal belief is that their is no other intelligent life out there that is alive right now for us to encounter. But if there is or was of course there might be a signal out there of there existence. Seti is the best possible course of action in finding that signal by using as many computers available for the intense mathamatical computations needed. By using every resourse this planet has to offer (meaning home computers at home sitting idle) we have a very good chance of some day discovering something we have never imagined, whether it be life or something else entirely different. With the thought of physics in general, and that breaking the light barrier by moving a physical object may be possible, and highly expensive, it is best to come up with another form of transportation. Simply moving a physical object through space will not due, and in fact having space move around the object instead is more feasable with what is called a warp bubble.
