Bio: Married over 25 years, 2 grown children and grandchildren. Started playing with computers in 1975, working with them in 1979, owning them in 1981 and still love them. I have usually 3-4 PCs running the Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing (BOINC) platform on several different projects. I have run SETI, Climate Prediction, Einstein (looking for Pulsars and other space anomalies) PrimeGrid (search for huge prime number), etc. I have found a few very significant primes, including the current worlds largest Twin Prime (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_prime). I love food. My passion is to try as many different ethnic foods as I can. My favorites come from the Asian continent, but I eat pretty well anything (there are some exceptions). I have listened to comedy music since a child. My mom would play Allan Sherman, Tom Lehrer, Ray Stevens, Leroy Pullins and others. I found Dr. Demento (www.drdemento.com) in the mid/late 70's and still listen to him. I have met him and Weird Al Yankovic several times. I also listen to smaller artists like the ones that hang out at The FUMP (FUnny Music Project www.thefump.com), etc. One philosophy of mine is just let it slide. Things make you mad and that will happen, but just let it go as soon as you can and avoid the stress. With this I feel younger, happier and healthier than ever.
Interests: Computers, food, BOINC, comedy music (Dr. Demento, etc.)
