Zeppelin here

Postby Zeppelin » Wed Nov 12, 2014 9:21 pm

Hello from chilly eastern Kentucky.

I'm a cruncher from long before BOINC was a glimmer in David Anderson's eye. Started out running the "GIMPS" project in '97, moved to distributed net in '99.

As a recent cancer survivor I like the idea of helping find cures for diseases and furthering medical research.

Welcome to the Team.

I remember how cold it gets in Kentucky. I had Basic Trainning at Ft Knox in '78.

So stay warm (hug your computer).

A big, hearty Welcome from Indiana! I have some family in the Georgetown, KY area. That's some beautiful (horse) country.

I also started with distributed net back then, I think it was rc5-64, before moving to OGR. Then I branched out to a lot of projects like Folding@home, genome@home, UD, I did some GIMPS - mostly factoring and Double Checks, and then it just snowballs from there. I love that we can do research on our hardware, and my focus is mostly bio/medical projects now.

Congrats on beating cancer!

Thanks for the welcome!

>Col323 - It was rc5-56 in the early days and OGR-24. They are now on rc5-72 (and will be for many, many years if they complete it) and OGR-28.
