Computing from beautiful, Northern California.
I have maintained an avid interest in all things astronomical since I was 12 years old and got my first telescope. I just recently built a new computer with modern hardware and operating systems. Felt it was finally time after 6 years. Have to say that the processing power of a multi-core CPU and GPU is impressive. I also have attached to the MilkyWay@Home project because I feel the project is relevant to my interests in astrophotography and the need for up-to-date maps of the galaxy.These projects allows me to contribute my unused CPU cycles on my workstation. SETI@Home lets me vicariously 'view' through the Arecibo radiotelescope and MW puts to good use the datasets coming off the SDSS. The image is of the Horsehead and Flame Nebulas I took with my SBIG ST-2000XM CCD camera through my first telescope. I also use a larger SBIG STL-11000M CCD camera and a new astrograph to capture a wider image area.Opinion about BOINCstats/BAM!
I've always liked the formatting and depth of information that BOINCStats shows compared to the other websites. I like the way that the greeting page of your detailed stats lets you click through to your team standings.
