User of the day
Brazilian, working as a translator in SÃ£o Paulo (English-Portuguese and vice versa), but with an academic background in both biomedical and IT areas, which makes me understand BOINC's purposes and methods and the biomedical projects in which I have concentrated my processing power. The latter consists of just one PC (AMD single-core Athlon 64 3800+ "Venice," 2 GB RAM, Windows XP Professional/Vista Ultimate dual-boot), but I'm glad to contribute as much as I can. For the same reason, I don't care about points, competition or teams.
