|Your personal background.|
|I'm a 40-something telco network engineer and an active father with four kids. I enjoy racquet sports, bicycling, hiking, sailing, the performing arts, messing with computers (I have a lot to learn!), and reading historical accounts (especially crimes, disasters, survival/adventure), espionage and political intrigue (think Baldacci, Silva, Thor, etc.), mysteries, and science fact and fiction.|
I crunched SETI@Home for years before the advent of BOINC, but stopped for some reason that I don't remember. I started BOINCing in May of 2008 and actively participate in about a dozen projects on 4 hosts (two P4s, a C2D, a C2Q). I recently managed to install more modern video cards in two hosts, so I'm crunching GPU projects, as well.
I really like the idea of volunteer grid/distributed computing and am happy to contribute what cycles I can. I hope that what we do genuinely helps the projects advance their respective sciences and leads to practical benefits for all.
|Your opinions about MilkyWay@home|
|I have a particular interest in the astronomy and physics related projects, so I crunch MW@H, Cosmo, QMC, Leiden, and others.|
