Your personal background.
I will be 66 Next August(2015), six grandkids.

Hobbies: Sci-Fi, popular science, my garden, good eating and the US Open Tennis tournament in Flashing Meadows (visiting it for the 2nd year next month, go Federer).

I am involved in Volunteer computing projects from the early days of Seti@Home, some years before BOINC.

Occupation: IT manager involved in custom made real-time embedded systems development.
Your opinions about theSkyNet POGS - the PS1 Optical Galaxy Survey
I run distributed computing projects because I like assisting the scientists, all be it by some computing cycles.

I still run SETI@home as well, it is important to me not just because it was the first Volunteer computing project, rather because of what its purpose is, find out if ET is out there.

Nowdays my main crunching is done for theSkyNet POGS. The project caught my attention from the beginning before the transition to BOINC.

About ET:
Contrary to the popular opinion I do not think that if ET ever comes here it will be friendly, just think how we treat likely sentinent species like whales here at home, some of us eat them.

I keep remembering an old Sci-Fi movie. The aliens arranged visits from earth to their planet and some of them held a book titled "To Serve Man" which they read from.

As it turned out at the end of the movie it was a cook book.
