Profile: Bernie Vine

Your personal background.
I live in South London, have done for most of my life. Been interested in science both fiction and fact from a young age. Was lucky enough to get an apprenticeship with British Telecomm (Post office Telephones back then) Stayed with them for 22 years and got a good early grounding in data comms and computers.

For 12 years up to June 2012 I was working for a company that provides bedside TV's and phones to hospital patients in the UK, as a commissionning enginer for the new system the company is rolling out to all 155 sites in the UK.

I decided in June 2012 that I had enough and took semi retirement.
Your opinions about SETI@home Beta
I remember seeing the original SETI classic on Tomorrows World a science program here in the UK, and joined in May 99, because I believe there has to be intelligent life out there somewhere.

I joined Beta because after 13 years I wanted to "help out" a bit. Not in in for the big numbers, just the science.
