Your personal background.
Just kidding, that's not me in the picture (my pictures usally break the camera)!

Ran classic SETI@home for 4 years (no points), until the CPU and motherboard melted down, now (with BOINC) I share time with Climatic Predection, Rosetta, SZTAKI, Einstein, more SETI and the WC Grid (AIDS/HIV).

Was an IBM CE is 1964-76 @ Toledo, OH - trained on 632/6400/Series 7/ 1130/ 1800 just to name a few... Transfered to Rochester, MN as microcoder for Sys 38, technical writer of Sys 36 maint. manuals, then AS400 and Maintenance Eng. for Magnetic Multi media card. Spent time in Endicott (Glendale Lab) bring up the 9370 (in 1984)! Then retired from IBM Rochester MN plant, mag. 1/4" tape media and drives + 8mm DDS tape - product integration and testing in '92.

Moved to Denver Colo. (work another 13 years)mostly as a facilities manager for a large church. Then moved back to Toledo to assist my dad (age 91)!

Have been involved with electronics - Ham Radio (TAPR packet)2 meter and up / Audio mixing consoles - Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge / Video (from camera to AVID production editing, live switching and computers - TRS 80 - Osborn 1, - Cmdr. pet and first-day order of IBM PC, and dozens since.

Wouldn't know a protein, if I stepped on it.

Praying for a cure to some of these diseases before one of them get me!
