My personal background
I've been boinc'ing for many years now. Originally for SETI, signed up around 1999, with a now lost account. Reassigned to boinc around 2005, since the idea of ClimatePrediction intrigued me. Now that ClimatePrediction isn't so stable anymore, I try to run different projects I like.

This hobby a costly affair though, since hardware and electricity cost a lot of money. Sadly electricity where I live, is taxed very high, even if it is "green" power.

I'm with the Gridcoin team, but the science is my main incentive to run Boinc. Earning the few Gridcoins I can, is just a little bonus.

Opinion about BOINCstats/BAM!
For me there's only BoincStats/BAM, it's the only stats site I use. It is well made, and runs well too. I try to donate a little now and then, to help keep it running. I am not into stats only, but I believe they are an important part of the feeling of a reward people get from running these science apps. And maybe compete where they can, if they want to.
Well, that is also why I think it is important to keep BoincStats running, since the community could die out without it, and so would Boinc also disappear.
