Profile: Jim-R

Your personal background.
I liveI live in North Carolina, on the east coast of the United States. I\\'m 51 years old. I might be considered a \\"jack of all trades\\", since I have been a professional automotive mechanic, electronic repair technician, and machinist, plus I have also been involved in many aspects of textile manufacturing, from narrow fabric weaving to supervisory and plant maintenance positions.
I am a licensed radio amateur (ham radio operator) callsign KF4DCF, a certified scuba diver, and I also enjoy camping and fishing, and until a short while ago (when someone broke into my house and stole my telescope) I was an avid amateur astronomer. Even now I love to get outside even on the coldest nights to watch meteor showers.
I also enjoy working with computers. I love taking old unwanted computers and giving them new life.
Your opinions about SETI@home Beta
I have always wanted to talk to little green men! Haha.
Seriously, I\\'ve always wondered that since there are so many stars in the universe, are we the only intelligent life around any of those stars. I have been a follower of seti since my earliest childhood. Now I have the possibility to actually contribute something to the search.
