I was posting over in the »Software forum when I noticed the sig of a TD member and decided to look around.

Today is the first time, for crunching that is.

I was looking for a place to eat and I saw something about TD...naturally I thought it was a reference about two deserts...however, that "Discovery" that was wrong, but thought I'd join the "Team".

I heard from Dolphin. I used to the crunching for AIDS but when I moved it stopped working, and I figured as a survivor, I'd join on.

I ventured off some of the other Dslr forums and realized how it was a waste to leave my computer idle doing nothing.

After seeing almost everyone else have some kind of club affiliation spinner over the years, I finally decided I may as well check out each of them (SETI,TD, etc) and decided this one was a good choice.

The emperor ordered me to come here.

he said "Send your fleet to the far side of team discovery. There it will stay, untill called for."

I say "Yes, my master"

So besides the fact that me and the purple pricess of power will have a saber battle eventually, I am compelled to stay, per my master's calling.

Read a very persuasive post from a gentleman by the name of Keys Capt.

There's no telling how many Team Discovery members are now here because of his efforts.

Well I got bored and was exploring BBR and stumbled upon the clubs. I've done this sort of thing before so I knew what I was getting into

Knew about Team Discovery for quite awhile now.
I've seen the spinners on many posters before.
I've searched for aliens and pulsars for a time now and decided to do something that would be more beneficial to this planet.
If I have to credit someone, more then others, it would have to be lilhurricane.
She is in, it seems, every forum helping someone and her signature is always referring to Team Discovery.
When I was ready to try something different, it was her signature that bought me here to learn more about it.

I found out about UD and Team Discovery when I was "re-creating" my long abandon DSLReports.com membership. Clicking on random buttons I somehow hit Clubs and ended up here.

So in summary I got lost and found you on a back road.

I've known about "crunching" for a while, I think the first one I heard of was the SETI one. I've been spending a lot of time here at BBR since I was first checking out Fios last March. I built a nice PC, and I have a fast broadband connection both of which sit idle about 20 hours a day. I picked UD because I've lost some friends and family to different kinds of cancer and I have friends and family who are cancer survivors. My 76yo Mother-in-law is just now finishing a chemo regime for non-hodgkins lymphoma, her 5 year outlook is good... This just seems like a good thing to do.

Saw it right here at BBR...

Just assembled a *DEDICATED* Cruncher! (Dual P3-733 Server board), that will (hopefully) be Crunching 24/7 @ 100% CPU for UD...

Never knew about UD till i was a memeber of DSLreports.

Right now its running on the kids computer but that computer has about 18 hours of idle time so i thought i would give it something to do.

Next year i plan on building its own server details will be coming later.

I have been aware of the distributed computing thing for some time. I thought it was a very useful thing. Just recently, mrspipur and I replaced our ancient P3s with new Dell dual core XPS 410s, so we had two old, but useable, computers just sitting around. Now the old P3s are happily crunching away!

I had visited the BBR site for years, but only to use the "Tools" the site provides, then I did something very strange....I decided to start giving back.
