We don't always agree but your 100% straight-forward attitude towards things is appreciated.

Congratulations and here's too many more years!

You're implying that "I'm implying". All I did was suggest other communication medium, other ideas -- I DID NOT SAY ANYONE WAS WRONG. Check the threads and you cannot find where I said anyone was wrong. For that you say I know better than anyone else?

Your responses indicate that you are offended that some perceived lay person DARE suggest other options to the PhD's that do research. You sound very frustrated and cannot take debate very well. I think anyone who counters a researcher findings... that researcher becomes offended because their expertise is now placed in doubt.


I am not a scientist nor am I offended. I honestly saw your post as challenging the scientists here and I would like to see you pick a point and provide an opposing view. If I read it wrong, apologies are offered

You make me sound like a government agent trying infiltrate the SETI clan... and I am here to destroy you. (maniacal laugh insert here).

The arrogance of the human race! PhD's on TV waving their arms and University Professors lecturing their finding's.

You were not born with all knowledge... as humans you have to "learn it" and suffer everyday knowing --- YOU DON'T KNOW IT ALL. Even the information you publish in "accepted journals" as the permanent fact... is temporary because someone can come along and still prove you wrong.


I'm not "born with all the knowledge". Every day I learn something new--it's called growing.

It sounds like you're implying you know better then anyone here. Please pick some information that Dr Korpela or other respected Seti staff has published and go at it.

I actually meant the forum software. I doubt that anyone has the time to rewrite it. Which is what it needs.

The first thing is to draw up a list of proposed changes for discussion and agreement, that is maybe something you could take on? The next stage is to find out how many man-hours it could take to implement, and therefore the approximate cost. Perhaps ES99 could look into that aspect?

If it turns out that it will take hundreds of man-hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the money could probably be better spent elsewhere. If it is a reasonable sum then yes, I would be prepared to donate something towards it, perhaps as ES99 is flush at the moment she could add something to the pot.

I am grateful to both CRL and Bernie for filling in the gaps in our knowledge, I think it has been a useful exercise, and a few hands have been shown. I hope that she enjoyed the Mai Tai, she deserved it :-)


Maybe it'd be best to actually have "Fred" him/herself participate in this thread if possible. Even if the Mods agree with the proposition, Fred can strike it down without further discussion if he/she chooses to do so. I am interested in reading the proposed ideas myself.

You have something resembling winter? It's been 12-15C here all week. Almost as if we're in the Southern hemisphere, approaching summer. I expect a heat wave anytime now.

Sorry to hear about your mom. Fingers crossed things will look up from here on in.


No it was 50 degrees today but Xmas Day will be 40F with flurries.

Thank you-dementia is a brutal issue to deal with

Thanks Pete, hope these days aren't treating you too badly either. :)


My mom is in pretty rough shape but we're taking it day-by-day. Once I get past this possible Hernia surgery I should be fine...but hey if I need to be on the shelf for awhile it might as well be during the winter.

Looking at the forecasts, this Chris(t)mas is going to be a wet one. But no lines of coke. Oh, not that snow?


Same here...disappointing. Being that we travel just over an hour to my wife's family home, I don't really want snow on the streets but a little on the grass would be nice.

The rest of the time, in between meals, when I feel hunger pangs I eat cherry tomatoes. By the bucket.


Love Cherry Tomatoes. We've been eating green, seedless grapes by the bucket.
