and my name is John. I've been a member of BBR for almost 5 years.
I am 49, and I hail from from Norwalk, Connecticut.
I work in Electronics Engineering (25 Years now with my current company), and have been an Electronics Hobbyist ever since the age of 15.
I'm a US Navy Veteran (where I began my Career in Electronics), and the first real Computer system that I ever worked on was a DEC PDP-08/M (Yeesh, I'm REALLY dating myself now...)
Anyway, I had been interested in Distributed Computing ever since the start of SETI@Home, but I never actually got around to doing anything with it... (Until Today).
Why did I choose UD? - I figured that if I was going to do something involving DC, Cancer Research would be the most important thing to do.
If You're Unsure, "RTFM"... If You're SURE, "RTFM" Anyway.
