Somehow I have managed to not reply to this thread since joining

Anyways, hi y'all...my real name is Chris...I am 26 years old. I live in New Jersey now but was born in Colorado. I have lived up and down the east coast over the past 7 years due to moving duty stations a few times. As my avatar picture suggests, I used to be in the Navy and served aboard submarines. Now though I am a clinical engineer for Beckman Coulter. I use cwy1980 as a handle just about every website I am a part of...less confusing that way for me

I have been crunching off and on for TD for...well quite a while going back to late 2004/early 2005 when we were still crunching for UD...due to military commitments/injury sustained in the military there were times when my crunchers were offline because I was gone on an extended absence...

But now I am out of the Navy after six years with injuries somewhat healed and crunching more than ever!

I have many reasons for crunching for a cure to Cancer (and with the WCG project I can crunch alternately for another personal passion for cures for HIV as well! )...I have lost a few close friends and family to the ravages of cancer. It is such a devastating disease to not only the mind but the body...as well as mentally devastating to friends and family. This is something that at least in doing and being a part of I can have hope that with a collective effort like this we will find a cure.

Hi Everyone, I'm Sally, 55 yrs young, born, raised and still in Atlanta. Travel all over the great USA for my company. Previously in the clinical setting of health care now employed with a great company dedicated to specialized radiology equipment.
My Father died 20 years ago of lung cancer, my Mom is a breast cancer survivor. I have lost many family members and friends to cancer. Other passions of mine are cures for HIV, HCV as well as educational information to create a positive environment so those affected are treated with compassion.
You will never know how honored I am to be involved with such a terrific team working for the cure!

My name is Bob and I'm rejoining Team Discovery. I used to be a member with my old BBR name FatTireMan (using UD). Three of my grandparents died of cancer which is motivating me to rejoin.

Also not new...also returning.

Cancer took another family member in April of this year and that harsh reminder sent me back to Team Discovery.

My paternal grandfather died of colon cancer, my maternal grandfather died from Leukemia, an uncle died from Pancreatic cancer in '01 and his wife followed April of '07 (same disease), an uncle has bladder cancer, another uncle has colon cancer....it just doesn't seem to end. Also, like most of you here, MgKnight is a treasured friend of mine and his battle has brought me both tears and pride in the strength of survivors.

I crunch for my family, my friends and the strangers who might be spared this disease one day because of what we all do.

TSC is running on my main work computer and installed on three others (still can't login to activate them though). In the end, I expect 5-6 to be alternating between TSC and Folding.

Glad to be back amongst the good folks here. Crunch on!

Re: [New Members Only] Introductions

Hello everyone! I'm Jimmy, 20, and a pre-med student. Wanted to join up because I have much interest in anything related to medicine and my father barely survived malignant melanoma. Hoping to help in any way I can to contribute towards the ultimate goal of finding a cure!

Hi all, my name is Angel from NYC. I'm a public servant by profession, always interested in helping others.

I had a spare box sitting around, and another computer that runs 24/7 as a syslog server (not very cpu intensive) so I figured I'd help out and am currently using the spare box for WCG, and the Syslog system for Team Helix Folding.

Nice to see so many others trying to help others.

Lets see here. My name is Joel and I'm 22. I'm a system admin for my friends company but the title "system admin" hardly encompasses everything I do. Basically if it plugs into the wall in some fashion or runs on batteries I handle it. But it doesn't end there, I do budgets and planning as well. I'm an entire IT department all rolled into one neat package LOL.

I've wanted to join for a while but for a while I couldn't leave my computers alone long enough for it to be worth it. I still do to some extent but I don't have as much free time as I used to (read the first paragraph for why). Various illnesses have happened to my family (breast cancer, MS and Emphysema mainly) so I figured this is just one more way I can help out. I'm bringing about 8 computers into the task.

hi, i'm chris i'm 28 living in joplin,mo i'm a cust serivce rep for comcast for the next week till they comletly drop this location. will be workign with some prescription medicaid plan thingy after that. found this place when i was doin tech support for 1st.net(R.I.P.) out in ohio a few years ago. i love this place give me somthing stimulating to read allday and is almost the only contact with tech svvy people i have these days. i joined team discovery because i was already looking into seting up a bewolf cluster (just for fun really havn't figured out what app i would run on it)and the fact that they jerks that have hijacked a good portion of the worlds computers and have insane computer powers through there botnets, i figured i use my compting power for good not evil. figured if i'm gonna run 4 pc's 24/7 might as well do something rightous with em.
well sorry if this reads like a broken record, years of just im'ing and never acually writing normal things has ruined my grammar skills.
time for me to get back to work

Well, I've already introduced myself once in this thread, so I won't bore with the same details now that I'm able to crunch again.

However, I would like to add that one of my best friends has been diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer, she had been cancer free for 12 years! I'm glad to be able to be crunching again, at least I feel like I'm doing something for her and everyone else who suffers from this terrible disease.

Lizzie, you GO girl!!

Hello, my name is Garret. I am crunching for Team Discovery / WCG because I know many people, plus my closest friend has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. I hope to help find a cure for this, and other diseases.

Howdy, my name's Sriram and I'm a high school student and I just turned 16 last Sunday. I hail from the toxic waste dump of New Jersey =P Since I got a new quad core computer, and I leave it on overnight, I thought why not dedicated the CPU usage to good use.

Hello, all -

My name is Mark - I own a telecom company in So. Florida that has more CPU capacity than is absolutely needed, so I turned some of it over to crunch. I lost my sister to C 18 years ago, and my father earlier this month - so in order to help prevent others to have this type of loss...

Hi, my name is Ray. I live in Mt Vernon, WA a few miles north of Seattle. I work as a vehicle dynamics engineer (in R&D) for a large truck manufacturer. Been following dslreports.com for a few years now & recently signed up.

I’m married with four teenage kids & have a few pc’s networked together for all to use. The majority of the time the pc’s do absolutely nothing, except of course a few hours a day (ok...with teenagers a bit more use than a few hrs/day!). Anyway, I found out about TSC on this website and simply thought why not?? as it's great way to help out & donate un-used processing power to a good cause!

Reintroduction...

I wanted to reintroduce myself. I was a active with crunching a few years back, but due to some changes in my life I was no longer able to be active. Now I'm really glad to be back.

I am Cam, I am in Oklahoma.

Hi everyone, my name is Andrew, I'm 21 and I go to Purdue University.

I am originally from San Francisco, although I don't plan on living there in the future (that place is just crazy). Anyways, I have been on WCG or a few years, and am happy to have found a group of people who really care about doing something good.
