I am 47 and a Rural Mail Carrier, I have a degree in Geology and was always facinated by the heavens. I became involved with SETI several years ago, after reading an article in the St.Petersburg Times (fl). I started running them on an old 66mhz computor and upgraded to an amd 200 mhz and now to a 1.6 ghz AMD athalon xp .
My son Robert became involved during the summer of 2002 and runs a 1 ghz AMD Athalon XP, he is wanting to persue his interests in Meteorology and using the USAF as his avenue for his education, He leaves in June 2003 as a crew cheif in the Air Force.
My Nephew Joe (Jetmec) became interested in Seti shortly after Rob, As did my wife Patty, Joes fiance Destiny, Joes son Little Jetmec, My neice Chris and my step daughter Manda panda.
