Re: [Team Discovery New Members Only] Introductions

My name in Emlyn Pugh and am a new member to Team Discovery WCG. I have been crunching for a very long time in TSC, UD,and others. I just changed to WCG and got recognized as a new member.

I found out about about Team Discovery as a BBR member. I like to have my computers on all the time so why not put then to good use when I am not using them. I think that this is a worth while project to do.

I have not been very active in contributing to the forms but now that I have retired I will have more time. I used to have a lot of free time at work to browse the forms.

I retired from a community college where I was the media manager for 29 years. I installed high tech classrooms and maintained the equipment as well as taught teachers how to use it. Prior to this I worked for 17 years as a broadcast engineer.

Howdy everyone!

I just joined Team Discovery, and am happy to use my computer to hopefully make a difference.

I'm 22, have been doing freelance (web development / design / graphic design) work for around 8 years now. I play lead guitar/mandolin in a rock/country band, work full time night audit at a hotel, part time web design / marketing, and taking full time classes starting the 27th this month.

Overall pretty busy, but I always try to make some time to help out if I can.

Hey everyone!

My name's Thou and I'm new to the team.

I decided to join because I lost a really good friend a little over a year ago to cancer. I'd like to help as much as I could because it feels like I'm still helping her even though she is gone.

Joined the project. Was crunching for SETI but their servers are slow and I'm not getting any work right now. I read a post about one of your team members who passed and I though maybe rather than only looking for alien signals I could add WCG to my project list and maybe help do some good "locally".

Hi all, I have been a supporter for some time though I was slacking and didn't actually join until 07/01/09.
I was thinking of joining several causes but decided that picking one team and gearing up for up for such would be for the best. I have a mom who died from Alzheimer's an uncle who died from cancer and a sister that I live with who has RSD. I am happy to become part of this team and just upgraded my CPU today from a Duo core2 to a Quad. So as of today I am running 24/7:

MB: Asus - P5NE-SLI
CPU: Quad Core - Q9550
Ram: 4G of ram
Os: Vista Ulitimate 64
Video: GForce 8500GT 512MB

Good afternoon all!

I'm Joey and I'm 26 years old living in Florida. I own my own computer repair company and have been a BBR member for several years. I decided to join simply because too many people suffer from cancer year in and year out. A close friend of mine's father has been diagnosed with liver cancer recently and is not doing too well.

Hi, I just joined. My name is Chris, I'm currently 27, and work as a software engineer for the federal government in the DC area. My father is 57 and has colon cancer (currently in his liver). He will be on chemo for the rest of his life (he's endured a year of it so far - every two weeks). His oncologist told him a few weeks ago that he is the longest living patient he's ever had. My father's father had colon cancer, and the doctors have said that my sister and I have a 50/50 chance of carrying a genetic trait that will guarantee cancer in our futures as well. It is a nasty disease.

My name is Réjean (Rej) from Québec.

I am new on this team but have been crunching since 2004. I retired 5 years ago. Now I have lots of time to give my wife, my children, my grand children, the house and my dogs, in that order. I stop crunching for 4 years since I was not sure it was used for what it is clamed to do. I am still not sure.

I have the greatest distrust in governments, and parallel institutions. On the other hand, I have hope for humanity. But we will have to be very lucky if we want to make it to a class 1 civilisation.

Regards, Rej

My name is Mark from Pittsburgh, currently living in New Cumberland, WV.

I am new to this team but have been crunching since 2006 for the project with Stanford (folding@home).

My grandmother died from breast cancer before I was born, I would have liked to have met her.

My mother-in-law is a 15 year skin cancer survivor, I would like for her to see my children grow up.

My uncle is a 10 year prostate cancer survivor, I would like for him to see his grandchildren grow older.

My wife was incorrectly diagnosed with Uterine cancer in 2005 (the tumor has not tested positive for cancer since 2007). We spent a lot of money on treatments, which I do not regret, but would have much rather spent the time between 2005 and 2007 without the pure fright and hell that we went through thinking that she would not be around much longer.

My name is Jason. I am a Children's Pastor and IT Specialist.

Kids are awesome and so full of life. I know many kids that face those things that we all dread and do so early in life... all while keeping a smile on their face.

I also have a grandmother that is facing breast cancer at age 78. She has that same love of life like a child and even though she is facing a tough disease she is still... smiling.

I want to honor that love of life and do whatever I can to help them...
