Ex-hitech worker bee that drones on.
Prime95 participant 2003-2009.
Recent amateur astronomy enthusiast (astro-nut) since 2006, ATMOB member.
Completed my first telescope mirror, an 8" f7.2 as part of the Stellafane 2010-2011 mirror making class. Now I have to build a new scope around it.
I run Milkyway@home on 3-4 P4 office pcs, but throttle it down in the summer when the AC is on.
A firm believer in recycling of all kinds, I recently acquired a Radeon H4770 GPU, for very shoort money. While it is totally un-needed for office use, I will put in place in the fall when it becomes necessary to turn the heat on.
My ultimate back-yard project is to make a Cob or brick pizza/bread oven. But this fun project has about 10 other more practical projects in front of it so it looks like a 2014 summer project at this point.
