I'm from Concord, California, USA..that's just east of San Francisco, about 25 miles. Also called the Diablo Valley. I'm retired AT&T tech support for business broadband (38 yrs). I've been hacking on Unix/Linux/BSD systems since 1975. Have had all kinds of machines over the years, from mini-computers to desktops. Had a DEC Vax 780 for awhile. I also play the theatre organ, active in gold mining/prospecting. Like astronomy. I'm an Amateur Radio operator (K6TPK). I'm a avid audiofile and have a high-end stereo system.
Your opinions about MilkyWay@home
I've been interested in astronomy, geology and seismology for years and BOINC is a perfect way to further science by donating cpu/gpu time on my Unix workstation.
