Electrical Engineer with interest in renewable energy, mainly solar and wind. Have a life partner, child, and two dogs and lots of plants. I love tinkering, good movies, good music, the outdoors, and playing my guitars - electric bass and classical acoustic, hopefully my partner will let me get an acoustic bass soon. Started crunching in November 2000 with SETI Classic (10,839 hours for 628 WU's).
My BOINC farm:
*iMac G3 (Rev A), 233 MHz (overclocked to 266), 384 MB
*iMac G4, 700 MHz, 1024 MB
*PII, 266 MHz, 192 MB
*PIII, 500 MHz, 256 MB
*P4, 3.05 GHz, 1536 MB (at work)

Some projects (no, not BOINC projects...) I have in the works:
*USB hub, 7 port, multiplexed to 4 computers (kinda like a KVM switch, but not)
*Electric bike conversion DONE!
*Electric vehicle conversion (ok, this one is more of a dream... at least 10 years out)
Opinion about BOINCstats/BAM!
BOINCstats (really any stats site) provides an "enjoyment factor" for participating in distributed computing projects and gives a sense of "belonging" with like-minded BOINC freaks!
