I live in Sofia (Bulgaria). Born on 1985 I'm curretnly 23 years old. My real name is Peter.

I'm currently a student in the University of Sofia studying Computer Science. And when I have some spare time I work for Tangra Inc. as a junior developer. We hope to make the revolution in the Database synchronisation tools but time will tell :)
I'm the developper of SETI@BOINCWatch. But lately I don't have many free time to improove that lovely tool.

I like watching Sci-Fi and Cartoon movies (like Ice Age, etc.), hill climbing and computers more on the software side.

I'm a geek that loves nothing better than messing with computers. Also spend a lot of time helping others with their computer problems. If I help anymore than I do now I'll have to open a shop to take care of everybody, but then I'd have to start charging for my expertise to cover expenses. As it is I do it because I like to do it but if I opened my own shop and did it full time I would most likely start to dislike what I like to do the most. The way I do it now is mostly like a barter system. That way I need not claim any income from what is basically a hobby.
Not much to say. I just like to keep my old steam powered computers running. It helps keep the house warm in the winter. :)
Staf Stoker
Mijn naam is "Staf Stoker" (komt van mijn vader, die was stoker van beroep). Nu ik op brugpensioen ben heb ik een zee van tijd vrij (dacht ik) om mij aan mijn hobby's te wijden.
Vooral aan mijn duitse herder en mijn duiven ga ik meer tijd en energie besteden.
I am a physicist from Odessa, Ukraine. I have been crunching since 2001 for SETI@Home. Now I'm crunching for many BOINC projects. As I am a physicist, I am interested in projects related to physics and astronomy ;)
a programmer for hire.
Sono nato a Tortona (AL) nel 1977, fin dalle scuole Medie appassionato di computer, dopo esperienze
con Commodore 64 e Amiga (che ogni tanto uso ancora) sono approdato nel mondo dei PC,
dove dopo una travagliata lotta con tutti i sistemi Microsoft ho finalmente conosciuto UNIX
(Solaris, FreeBSD, ma soprattutto Linux e Mac OS X) anche grazie a esperienze universitarie su server SUN.

Ho ricoperto la carica di Amministratore di sistema prima nel provider della mia città (Tortona On Line Srl)
e poi nella ditta Alfa (PreSSo@NET).
Attualmente sono studente di informatica presso la Facoltà di Scienze M.F.N.
dell'Università del Piemonte Orientale "Amedeo Avogadro".
I started a long time ago running community projects with SETI for curiocity and now I continue with projects of more 'practical' interest and more rewarding. I believe that it is worthing the efford.
Internets? I has 'em
I takes a punchin', keeps on crunchin'!
I'm originally from sunny San Diego, California. I'm USAF Security Forces currently stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.
Little bit mentally mad in my head if you ask me (errr, quit literally translation of the dutch saying: 'Beetje geestelijk gek in mijn hoofd als je het mij vraagt').

BOINCstats is THE VERY BEST BOINC stats site there is! I use it all the time and can't wait for the daily update to arrive and view my new credit, position, overtake stats and so on.

BAM! is great for administrating your machines at any time you want, even though you're nowhere near 'em.

Hi, me and my cat "Tiger" spend lots of hours with "boincing". The rest of the time we are sleeping :)

Its not about the credits, its about the science! Thats why we let our computer run 24/7 to support several projects:

Everything that might help to find a cure for diseases or to understand them better is worth a try (Rosetta+RALPH, WCG, Proteins, Spinhenge, TANPAKU, SIMAP, Malaria, QMC).

And we believe that there actually IS something out there (SETI, SETI Beta).

I like playing chess (Chess960) and I love numbers (RCN, ABC, Rieselsieve, PrimeGrid, Leiden (sort of)), I'm also highly interested in modern technologies (uFluids, LHC).

ClimateChange (CPDN) is one of the biggest concerns of our time - lets do something about it!

Last but not least theres the Einstein project, because astronomy is one of my favourite hobbies!

I am 60 years old and I have my own business doing computer consulting, setup, and repair.
I live in Klamath Falls, Oregon. I have been running SETI@home since Sept. 2000, and BOINC since it was in beta. I am currently running BOINC 6.10.56 for both SETI@home and SETI@home/Astropulse beta. I am Alpha testing BOINC.

I enjoy working with computers, and play games once in a while. I like to read, go hiking and camping, working with animals, and taking photographs (I have thousands of them on my computer).
Physicist by training. Enamored by astronomy, nuclear physics and quantum mechanics. Sort of a nerd!
After nearly 21 years in the Submarine Service, I retired from the U. S. Navy and went to work for a company that makes integrated circuit chips for nearly every application you can imagine. I also returned to university as a student. I wrote my first computer program for something other than a handheld calculator as part of a calculus course at University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1976. We were using teletypewriters and Hollerith punched cards then. I have been working/playing with computers ever since. I enjoy bicycling, hiking, motorcycling, SCUBA diving, building and configuring computers, dabbling in computer programming, and Old Time Radio. Spare computing resources here are donated to projects I hope will benefit humanity and this world we inhabit.

I'm James and I'm from Perth Western Australia. Software engineering is my trade and a hobby, well my lifestyle really, I'm sort of addicted to computing just like so many these days. I started when I was 10 on a Commadore64 back in 1986, now look at things 23 years later. Wow life is cool for us software developers, just keeps getting better and better. BOINC is definately one of little software projects that is changing the world and how we look at it.

got it working i think, but it wasnt at all straightforward how to simply get up and going. there doesnt seem to be any instructions anywhere, especially the url to attach to, i finally found some info in the forum and sort of winged it.

i had previously been using Gridrepublic, but since it relies an a special build of the Boinc engine that wasnt getting updated, i finally decided to defect and give Bam a try, so here i am, a bit flustered by the initial setup experience but happy so far about the stats features...

ug!! it detachd from all my projects and all the work done was thrown out, not into the trash but directly deleted the work from my boinc projects folder off into oblivion, thats months of lost time for the work units... okay that bites, starting over from scratch now!

Der SETI.Germany-Booster

Die Idee zum SG-Booster entstand im Jahre 2007, als man sich innerhalb von SETI.Germany dazu entschied, vom Cruncher abgelegte aber noch brauchbare Hardware in einem Gemeinschaftspool zu sammeln und zu neuem "Leben" zu erwecken.

Die Hard/Software-Spenden, aus denen die einzelnen Booster-Systeme bestehen, kommen von Mitgliedern und Freunden von SETI.Germany. Sie wandern in den Pool des Boosters und werden zu möglichst effizienten Rechnersystemen verbaut.

Derzeit hosten SG-Mitglieder aller Gruppierungen idR. jeweils 24h/7d in der Woche. Dabei tragen sie die anfallenden Stromkosten, dürfen aber im Gegenzug die Rechner auch für private Zwecke benutzen.

Eventuelle Hardwareschäden, die während des Crunchens entstehen, muss der Hoster nicht selber beseitigen. Diese werden durch Teile aus dem Booster-Teile-Pool ersetzt.

Nur weil ich mich mit vielen Menschen nicht beschäftige?

Nur weil ich oft nichts sage, heisst das noch lange nicht, dass ich nichts zu sagen habe. Zuhören muss man oft den stillen Menschen.

Nur weil ich mir meine Gedanken oft gerne selber mache?

Nur weil ich viele Menschen ignoriere? Ignoranz ist noch lange nicht äquivalent mit Intoleranz!

Ich verachte die Gesellschaft nicht - Ich zweifle nur ihr Streben nach Äusserlichkeiten und Statussymbolen an.

Hallo mein Name ist Sandrik, ich bin 34 Jahre alt und lebe in Wetzlar / Hessen / Deutschland. Ich bin in einem kleinen Dorf ca. 100 Km noerdlich von Frankfurt am Main aufgewachsen und lebe nun schon seid 15 Jahren in Wetzlar. Ich habe bereits 1981 oder 1982 meinen eigenen ersten Computer bekommen, ein Geschenk meines Onkels, einen Sinclair ZX 81 mit 1 Kilobyte Hauptspeicher (der wird bis heute gut verwahrt). Waehrend ich die Hauptschule meines Dorfes besuchte, hielt auch ein Commodore 64 einzug bei mir, der spaeter mit einem 5,25" Floppylaufwerk ausgestattet wurde (die hat man damals Brotkisten genannt, weil die so aussahen und auch so gross waren). Mit 15 habe ich die Hauptschule abgeschlossen und bin zur Berufsfachschule fuer Metall gegangen, diesen Weg begleitete mich ein Amiga 500, nein 2 denn der eine wurde spaeter durch ein aktuelleres Modell erstetzt. Nach dem Abschluss der 2 jaehrigen Berufsfachschule begann ich meine Lehre zum Industriemechaniker und habe einen meinen ersten K

Used to be in Credit, Risk Management, and Sales after serving in the US Army for three years as an airborne ranger qualified 1st Lt with the 3rd Battalion 187th Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division.

Hi! My name is Michael. I've taking part in BOINC (initially in SETI@Home) since 28 July 1999.

Hi! I am currently employed as a Security Manager with a large UK based company and have 32+ years experience of the security industry. I live in England with my wife and daughter. I served 10 years in the army, having seen active service in both Aden and N Ireland back in the 1960-70s. Those were the halcyon days. Most of my free time is now spent running various BOINC projects which, hopefully will improve the lot of all humankind. My other hobby is brewing my own beer and lager.
I've joined SETI 10 years ago. The reason was simple. Not only that I think that we aren't alone in the universe, I'm sure about that. The question is not IF but WHEN we discover this. I know that me as an individual I can't do anything to influence on this fact but SETI has given me an opportunity (or better said - a feeling) to be a very small part of something that fascinates, motivates and drives mankind forward throughout the entire history. Without this curiosity, which was and always will be a companion for humanity, I wouldn't be writing this lines now. The only think I hope is that we'll be the generation privileged to be a part of THE greatest discovery of all times and the spectators witnessing the beginning of a new era. If that isn't a reason enough to do my part then I don't know what it is. This way of thinking accompanies me from childhood, now I'm a physician, a scientist more than 20 years older and in spite of the fact, that we did not get any kind of solid evidence
I'm 26 years old. I am a self-employed developer running a studio called Thinkbox Games in the city of Bendigo in Victoria, Australia. Thinkbox Games provides games, web, graphic and media design and development services.

My hobbies include Cricket (backyard of course!), Basketball, bushwalks, researching Australian History (for game concepts!) but most of all playing computer games. If i'm not designing a game, i'm usually playing one!

I also like to get out fishing once in a while although unfortunately most of the good fishing spots surrounding Bendigo are dried up or quickly disappearing. It's a real reason to participate in projects such as when I look at the effects climate change is having on my local region.

I am from The Midwest. It's great for star gazing because of all of the open spaces we have here. I have been interested in astronomy and "little green men" since I was a little girl. I feel so small when I look up to the stars. I tell myself, "We just can't be the only ones out here!" I became familiar with SETI through the movie, Contact. I thought that was pretty amazing to find another world through the use of radio signals. I am open to the possibilites of the unknown. I am reading a book by Arthur C. Clarke right now about this company mass-producing wormholes to view time, current and past. Nothing has to be science fiction anymore! I study the stars as a hobby. I actually went to college to work wih children and that's what I am happy doing right now.
I am a Louisianian, I take things a bit slow.

I am a proud member of The Knights Who Say Ni!. Relatively new to shrubbing, I have now fallen for the lure for the quest for the Holy Shrubbery. One of the many goals of the Knights is to find the Holy Shrubbery, and we know it's out there. Somewhere, somehow, we will find it using the power of personal shrubbers. This task is mighty and fraught with many perils. If you have the stomach, the heart, the desire and the will, you too can become a Knight. Bring your sense of humor and a PGGB (or three) and join us on our quest!

Added bonus: The right to say Ni! to old ladies!

I enjoy looking at the stats but my hobbies include all sorts of technologies, computers, training others, outdoor activities and so much more. I also am a fan of traveling and learning other cultures, hence the introduction.

I am originally from England until I met and and Married my wife of 30+ years in the United States where we live, in Tennessee in the Appalachian mountains.
I love astronomy, Music, all types and I play electric and acoustic guitar.
ON computers I like to produce Music, make 3D Models and create artwork. I also love image processing especially as my wife is a photographer.

Science was always a first love of mine, but situations altered any progress in that area, but at least I managed to work in Psychiatry and nursing.
I went back to school in the US for a degree in electronics, and ended up working in that field.
Following this i started my own business in the then very limited field of desktop computer graphics.
I live in Hradec Kralove in the Czech Republic. I'm a student of law and I'd like to help people. You can contact me at
Entomologist from Germany.
I started 5 years ago crunching seti on old P1 machines, stopped for over a year, and now have come back with a furry of more powerful CPU/GPU! Very disappointed that SETI is having SO many problems staying online. So I branched out into other projects. Also disappointed that I havent seen a astropulse on any of my machines in almost two years even with that option checked. But enough crying, there are other worthy projects out there that my electric company is loving me for! HAHA

Now, the thing is, you do not realy need a "bio", because if you know me, then there is no need for my discription. And if you do not know me, then why are you on my profile...

Right. Yes. Something about me? OK. I am an pessimist. I think. That's what people call me. I'm just a realist realy, but there's so much bad things around. That's what pessimists say, isn't it? No.

I always thought there might be others out there, and I have a computer that could do other things in its free time, so I decided to offer some CPU cycles to SETI@Home.

I doubt any advanced extraterrestrials would communicate with us directly, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be listening.

I'm a computer specialist/consultant from Portland, Oregon, USA. I love gadgets, "Jetson's" style, since childhood. I live alone with my cat, Spike, who I thought was a male the first 6 months, until she went into heat for the first time ;-)

I'm fascinated by the thought that there will be communications with someone (thing)? somewhere else other than here, and want to be a part of that.

Hi there,
I am born in 1987, live in Germany and want to help science in their research by supporting BOINC.
Currently I work as a programmer here in Germany, my hobbies are using BOINC, geocaching, my PlayStation 3, meeting with friends, listening to music and reading about new science-stuff, especially when it comes to news regarding the universe.

If you want to know more about me, please don't hesitate to ask me :oO

Oh, and don't forget to let your friends and family know about BOINC/BAM!!!! (y)

Hi Friends, I am Saqlain Mallick.

Nothing special about me. I live in Bangladesh. I am a student. Studying BBA at East West University, Bangladesh. My home town is Rangpur. I wish to be a wise person in future and when ever I get any chance to do any thing good I want to grab it. That's why I am here.

After installing the BOINC software in my computer it used all of my memory and the fan run all day in full speed. Now its dead. But I dont care. My pc is still running without any fan. I hope you BOINC people are doing something good for the world which is worth our sacrifices.

I landed on this planet some 50 years ago, found the life forms rather interesting and I decided to stay a while whilst carrying out my research into extraterrestrials.
I'm a 29 year old Physics major aspiring to attend graduate school to pursue my PhD soon, hopefully in Canada.
I am a 10-year disabled United States Army veteran living in Australia now. I served with the famous 82nd Airborne Division as well as the 10th Mountain Division. I completed 3 tours of combat duty, once in Iraq and twice in Afghanistan. I was medically discharged due to injuries received during training as well as in combat. I spent a long time flexing my testosterone. Now its time to flex some neurons.

Currently, I am pursuing a bachelors degree in Geotechnical/Mine Engineering. I love rocks. Don't ask why, because I don;t even know. I just know I like digging holes and looking at rocks. No, I did not have a lot of friends growing up. :wacko:

I am fighting with the university to let me in, but unfortunately, I screwed up in high school (almost 15 years ago) and didn't set myself up for success in future education endeavours. Now I am having to do basic courses again in order to get better grades to allow myself to gain entrance to a university. This is not f

Currently enjoying the civilian life!
I live in the UK, Im a Purchasing Manager. I love popular science and heard about BOINC in the first decade of the 21st century, I have been running some kind of BOINC projects ever since. My main areas of interest are biomedical, astronomy and subatomic science projects.
I don't really understand most of the science, I leave that to the professionals, but if I can help them along the way a little, I think that is worthwhile.
Im now a member of team Gridcoin (see, I'm hoping that the potential financial return can attract a lot of Bitcoin users with redundant hardware into the BOINC research world.

The Shackford family, we may not have the time or money to help advance the world's knowledge, but we do have idle computers! As a family we have done science experiments, assembled a rock sample collection, and now with our son being old enough we have started to build computers. In trying to show him what they can do I remembered running seti@home years back. It is amazing to see how far things have grown since then. BOINC, all the projects, and especially BAM! have made this a great opportunity to contribute to worthwhile endeavors. So now we are picking projects to support and assigning one of our computers to them.
