My personal background
As a software/hardware developer I have become slightly addicted to building computers and watching my scores increase. I have built 12 intel i7 & i5 computers added to the 3 I already owned for a total of 15 CPU's and 9 GPU's (3-Windows 7 and 12 Ubuntu Linux). Electricity and cooling cost have stopped me. Electricity is $208 per month to run them. Most contributions are to biology and disease research (World Community Grid, POEM@home, GPUGRID) with some to astrophysics like milkyway@home.

I am a widower - 5 adult children and 10 grandchildren.

I am a radio control flyer and private pilot. I've added the 3DR Pixhawk autopilot to the radio control airplane shown in the photo. It can fly itself with inputs from GPS, 3 axis magnetometer, 3 axis accelerometer, 3 axis rate gyros, barometer (altitude), and pitotube (airspeed). Wingspan is 9 feet, weight 18.5 lbs, electric power, flight time 15 minutes, stall speed 28 mph, cruising speed 45-60 mph.
