User of the Day for 24 October 2018: Deirdre Something

Your personal background.
In a world of nebulous labels and definitions, I am:

    A crossdresser
    A transvestite

Choose one or more that makes you comfortable.

I live in Oklahoma, in the USA. I\'ve spent most of my professional career as a television broadcast engineer.

I am just returning to distributed computing after several years absence, having participated in seti@home a few years ago. When I saw the variety of projects using BOINC besides seti@home, I began to look for other DC projects to join.

My PCs are powered up 24/7 and I wander back and forth from one to the other, so I\'m happy to donate CPU time to DC projects.

Your opinions about Rosetta@home
My original priority in choosing a project was to participate in one or more that made real contributions to our world. After my first day of running the BOINC client, I added the qualifications that I\'d like to be in a project with smaller work units so I can actually see progress being made (without fear of a crash wiping it all out) and one that has a reputation for being well-run... and I landed on Rosetta.
