Me: 59-year-old married man (for 40+ years...wife still introduces me as her "first husband"). One adult daughter. Originally born in Illinois but moved to CA in 1968 with mother and brothers and relocated to Indiana in 1975 after getting out of the US Army (note: Met wife in Indy while I was stationed at Ft. Ben Harrison). Christian-Catholic (no, they aren't always the same) and ideologically Conservative...very, very Conservative. Recreational fisherman (that means I suck at it), golfer (also suck at it), target shooter, reloader and skydiver (not at the same time). I firmly believe we should be trying to make contact with ET's who are already here, but willing to let you use my computer to help your cause (covering all the bases). Hope you get something solid but have little hope you will tell us if you do. Sorry, but I think of you somewhat like NASA and they are a pack of stinking liars. I hope you aren't but I won't lose sleep over it either way. Good luck.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. So my computer serves some purpose the 99.9% of the time I'm not on it.
2. Not a huge amount of faith that it will pan out, but this exercise isn't costing me anything, so...
3. Suggestions...just be honest. Don't know how many years I have left on this earthly plane and I just hate being lied to.
