Personal background
I joined 'classic' SETI in August of 1999 after listening to a news broadcast in the car onto the way to work. One reason I joined a distributed computing project was the idea of the power that may be tapped by breaking the project into multiple work units that my be completely independently and later re-combined. I believe the concept has been validated.
After the distributed computing community migrated to the BOINC platform I branched in multiple projects. At one time I had eight or nine computers running clients. Currently down to five.
I have settled most of my attention on the following projects
SETI@Home
Climate Prediction
Einstein@Home
MilkyWay@Home
The Lattice Project
World Community Grid

I am semi-retired. After finishing a career at Bell Atlantic/Verizon I went to work for FEMA as a full time but temporary employee in Logistics. I am currently still with FEMA as a on-call employee to be activated in the advent of a major event.

I have a BS in Logistics, a Masters in Information Systems.
Married with three grown children.

All the best.

Phil
