User of the Day for 25 September 2020: Phil

Your personal background.
I'm a retired hardware and software engineer. I've been doing electronics since I was a child and started programming in 1968. I'm also a musician -- piano, pipe organ, sax, and others. I enjoy making things, whether it's metal working, woodworking, sewing, or cooking. For me, the line between work and hobbies doesn't exist. From an early age, I strove to earn money doing things I would gladly do for free. About the only exception to this is ham radio (KW2P). I don't make any money from that. ;-)

I joined the seti@home project in 1999 and at one time had a dozen computers working on it. My participation slowed after 2001 and I've participated sporadically over the years in the ligo project, folding@home, and weather modeling.

The appearance of Covid-19 renewed my interest because I knew that understanding proteins is key to understanding viruses. So, here I am again.
