Well my name is Heath McLeod (Highlander :)). I am 39 years old and am still waiting to have kids of my own. I work for the State of Alaska as a Juvenile Justice Officer III, which means I work with kids (troubled kids). I have had people close to me including family that have died because of cancer and want to contribute anyway that I can to helping solve this disease. I could not resist when I saw that I could contribute to helping find a solution to cancer as well as other problems that face normal people every day :toast:

My name is Jess, my Grandmother recently died of cancer on November 2 of 2008 exactly 1 week from her 70th birthday. I did not know about crunching until I came across Techpowerup and when I read on what it was for and helped I joined as soon as I could. I do it because of the hope that it is or will help someone, somewhere, sometime. You guys are all great I and enjoy being apart of this team! I just with I could have started sooner :cry:


- Jess

I know this is an old..ish thread but goin to bump it anyway.

Will give new members a chance to introduce themselves and get to know all the rest of us (we are a family after all).

No details needed ...just pop in and say hello!!
Yup. It's a great idea to keep this open. Hopefully new members will drop by. I do appreciate Bob and all, but I wonder if it might be helpful to rename the thread :laugh: What do you guys think? Oh course I'd get Bob's permission first.

My name is Dave and I'm a 54 year old Software Architect. I'm married with two boys who will be 5 & 4 in August.

I have been fortunate in that I have not lost any family or friends to cancer. However, a day doesn't go by that I don't hear about someone else with cancer. The least I can do is to contribute some computing power to help in the search for a cure.

I crunch here (just passed 25K) and I fold for team HWC.

Rename away! That probably would be appropriate. Feel free to do whatever you folks want to the title of the thread.

I am still stopping by once in a while. Good to see the team is doing well.

My best to all of you, and for those in the USA, Happy 4th of July! :toast:

I'm one of the young ones here in TPU:p
I'm 16 and still in high school, and TBH I immigrated to SA when I was 6/7 and haven't been able to talk to lots of Family members back in Taiwan, and up to now I'm still not sure how my grandma passed away:ohwell: but I'm sure that she had cancer...
so one family member of mine had died due to cancer.

and if you ask why I started crunching, my answer would be because of TPU:p I really wanted to do something great here...and I also started crunching because I really hate seeing people suffer with incurable diseases, just look at those with curable ones, they suffer alot, so I hate to see people with incurable diseases, their families often abandon them, and that to me is one of the worst sufferings to go throgh when you have a disease.

so...
Crunch on TPUers and G/L to all Crunchers!!

Well I figure it's time to share who I am

My name is Evan and I am a 21 year old currently living in Tacoma WA. I attend the University of Washington and am majoring in Material Science Engineering. I loveee the outdoors and am leaving tomorrow to climb Mt. Adams with my dad for the 3rd time, nice little hike to keep in shape! I don't have any direct relatives who have died but helping out can never hurt. I don't have millions of dollars but if I can crunch and still do everything I normally do.. why the hell not. :toast:

Hoping to upgrade to an i7 still... in the making. :rockout:

I fold for my friend whose been diagnosed with Vascular Ehlers-Danlose Syndrome where blood vessels can tear unpredictably, causing internal bleeding, stroke, and shock.

It currently has a 0% survivability rate. I suppose nothing's changed except that he pretty much knows what will kill him, the when is still up in the air though. His life expectancy has been shortened to about 5 years though, which is far too short for someone whose only 21.

So, 2 folding dedicated rigs built and a enslaved main PC later I'm reaching about the limit of my financial and physical capabilities. My house is older and without more financial to upgrade the electrical I can't throw too much more in. It won't stop me though, I'm going to cure that son of a bitch.

My name is nick, i'm 21 years old, and I live in the USA.

The reason I want to crunch/fold is of course just because its good to do. But to make it personal, my girlfriend (actually my ex as of a couple of days ago, but what will happen there is still up in the air) is only 20 years old and has run through 3 bouts of various cancers (brain, lung, and breast, mostly) already in her life, and her mother has several times as well. I dont have a single instance of cancer in my entire extended family, but the fact that i am lucky makes it more important to give to those that arent so lucky.

I am not at the moment crunching or folding, but by tomorrow I will be again! I had a few older rigs running for a couple of weeks previously to test out the power consumption (i just started all this) but they were sucking down the power, and I live with 2 roommates, so they got a little freaked when our power bill nearly doubled (i personally think its the air conditioner since it finally got hot around here... waiting on this month's power bill to see if it goes back down or not, which will settle that argument) But now I have 4 8800's on the way (thanks Bogmali!!!), 3 of which will pair up with an E8500, and the last with a Celeron dual core for 24 hours folding/crunching, and if it turns out that they are not as power efficient as I hope, then I guess i'll be paying a larger share of the power bill than my roommates lol. I know its still not much, but like it has been said, all it takes is one machine processing the right work unit. If I lived alone I'd have over ten older and newer rigs crunching, but my roommates would kill me. I have dreams of a large farm, but it will have to wait for a later day.

Thanks everyone for all they do, no matter what team, website, or how many points you put up, and thanks TPU for introducing me to folding/crunching!

Eh? I'm a guy who sits around playing pc games all the time. I know my grandfather had cancer and died from it. My aunt had cancer but recovered. I have another uncle with prostate cancer but I dunno how he's doing. I suspect my dad had cancer but I will never know.

Anyways I run F@H and WCG cause I can and it's putting my computer's idle time towards something useful that will hopefully benefit humanity. At the time I found out about F@H here I had an athlon64 x2 5200+ and an 8500gt. I started folding two single core clients when we I first found out about F@H, then SMP came out and I ran that. Then the GPU client came out and I ran it on my 8600gts for a very short while (one wu) and I quit running the gpu client after that cause I thought it wasn't worth it. When I got my 9800GT I started folding on the GPU again. Then I got a quad core and killed my motherboard, that quad core and my 9800gt when I tried running the cpu at 1.375v. I reverted back to my old 8600gts and grabbed a cheap am2+ board and Sempron cpu, as I gave my old parts to my uncle. Now I have a much better cpu and graphics card and I continue to fold on my GPU but I run WCG on my cpu now.

Hi all, I'm John 26 and Ive been lurking around for a long time but occasionally post, i am a security guard working permanent night shift (10 pm > 6am) at a local pharmaceutical plant in south west Victoria Australia. I was also in the army for a short time (basic training) to go into electronic warfare but got out due to medical problems and major family issues at the time i got out

I quite often work 12+ days a fortnight and TPU gives me something to do every night when i am at work so i don't have much time to get out and do things, but what i do i thoroughly enjoy. i have two main hobbies one obviously is computers in general and the other is target shooting and building and tuning rifles (im currently in the process of finishing off a 1000 yard .308 rifle)

The other fun fact of my life is for the last three years ive been living with my grandmother (YAY), i moved down here after a nasty break up and to get away from the world and just ended up staying and enjoying the freedom of a single lifestyle, having family all around me within walking distance on the farm (dairy) and being able to go to the beach on a weekend and rip it up on the bikes of walk a bit further and go hunting in the scrub in the sand dunes, what more could a single guy want (besides the obvious).

Cancer has ripped through both sides of my family same with heart disease, i have lost both of my grandfathers and my mother has had breast cancer and off the top of my head a few more family member had had major problems with cancer and heart problems

Also above all im Mussels big brother, but after all of these years he still doesn't listen to me :p

I'm mussels, i'm almost 25 and like to remain gender ambiguous on the internet, so that i can get laughs out of it when i feel like it.

I deliver pizzas for a living. awesome job, i start at 3-5PM at night so i can sleep in EVERY DAY. i also get FREE PIZZA. :love: my job.

Rampage is my older brother - i answer all of his phone calls with "what did you break?"
when i visit him, we get rifles and snipe fruit :D fun times. (i think it annoys him that i'm a pretty good shot, despite firing a rifle about oh, once a year on average :p)

the latest pics mum sent me show that male baldness is also heavy on that side of the family, poor guys.

I have what is known as the jesus touch. my brother breaks things, he sends them to me, i touch them and they work fine. Quite often he's already bought new stuff so i get to keep it too. free upgrades, yay. (thanks for the OCZ ram, lol)

The rest many of you know, but heres a highlight.

Used to be a reviewer at 3dchipset.com, before it shut down. No idea what happened to the site.
After that went belly up, my secondary website became my primary and thus my lurking at TPU Turned into posting in every thread that caused me amusement.

Eventually w1zzard realised i'd been here for decades years and was never going to leave, so he gave me furniture Moderator status, and gave me a walking cane banstick.

Thanks to the reviewing days and being a mod here, my MSN list contains awesome people such as "bigtoe" tony at OCZ, ryan peterson (CEO of OCZ.. i know, that still gets to me), their head of marketing (alex), that guy who made ATI tool and GPU-Z, and a few other lesser known but equally awesome people.

and now, you all know me! yay!
