Self-employed network contractor and consultant in Riverside, CA. My SETI participation is powered largely by a 2.5kw/hr. battery-backed photovoltaic system of my own design. Some of my other hobbies include metal fabrication, automotive performance, and anything electrical. I fix stuff.

The prime workunit processing system consists of: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Asus X79-E WS board with i7-4930K, 32GB 2400MHz. DDR3, Adaptec 81605ZQ with 12 SAS drives and SSD cache, and 3 EVGA GTX 980 S/C cards, 1500-watt PSU.
