Profile: Georg Osthaus

Your personal background.
I'm a professional care taker for people with disabilities, who likes to contribute left-over CPU/GPU power towards climate research, health (in the widest sense - i am a big fan of medical research and bio-engineering stuff and sum that all up under "Health" as I believe that is what the ultimate goal of such should be: health) projects as a hobby. I stopped gaming long time ago (boring!) but am still obsessed with ultra fast machines and as such I have good hardware that'd be going to only operate Office and Adobe if it wasn't for BOINC. What a waste! Since I pay for Co2 neutral power and earn enough to pay a couple extra Kw/h per months, I think that is what is best to do. I am a rather idealistic person with a strong belief in science and tech as THE solution humanity has for everything, I am not blind to the risks though. So what makes me the person coming to BOINC is the wisdom of choice. I choose to put my resources, my entire being, where humanity as a species needs it. I choose to put my strength, health, my being to work for those who cannot help themselves and I choose to contribute my computing power towards the betterment of mankind. I choose NOT to put my resources to work for anything that is detrimental. That is who I am, essentially.
Your opinions about Rosetta@home
I run Rosetta@Home because it does what i find important - contribute grid computing power towards medical and bio engineering. Plus, it can run on my HTC Android too with the HTC App "Power To Give" - big plus!
Asking for opinions: I do not have a diversified opinion, just a general one: i like the project, I think it does much good!
Do I see anything to fix or make better? No, not yet. I'll let you, the Rosetta-Folks, know when I see anything come up ;-)
