Basically it is a spider that crawls the web hitting url's and seeing if they are still current etc.
Web indexing.....just something to make use of spare bandwidth with.

Some of us run DC projects just "because we can" :)

I'm a 17 year old student of Churchville Chili high school in NY. I'm currently developing skills in the arts and I really want to be an actor and do a little music on the side.

I currently distract myself with writing music, filming small shorts, drawing, and school work.

I'm trying to find a job to fund the purchase of a new HD film camera and some PC upgrades.

Wow, look at all these great people in here sharing who they are.:rockout: Well, my name is Jamie and I am 41 yrs old. I've been hanging around TPU for a couple of years now. I am a twice divorced(yes, 2x) father of 3 children(18,17,&13). I manage a roofing supply company in Stuart, Fla. I am currently single(3 yrs)and love my free time(alone). My friends describe my as OCD when it comes to the projects that I undertake. This would explain my obsession with F@H and WCG. I am a Halo CE PC fanatic and you can usually find me on the popular CE servers at night under Buck N@sty. My version of overkill is playing Halo PC on a Tri-Sli 260 GTX Rig (talk about cycles going to waste:laugh:)

I started folding in July of 08' and have been building the farm ever since. Paulieg convinced me and several other folders in May, to crunch our CPU's in exchange for GPU time on the crunchers rigs. Well, as you can see, both teams have grown phenomenally and continue to grow. I used to see a definitive line between Crunching and Folding, but no longer. We are brothers following the same cause(s) and running DC projects for the common good. I look forward to working with all of you in the future.

this thead is a great idea.
i am 34. i was born and raised in germany and came to the states in 1999 when i was 24.
time is going by to quick. i have a 6 year old son how is as interested in computers as i am and i new edition on the way which should be here next month. boy as well.
got my interest for computers by tinkering with a c64 in my early teens.
went to a few schools yada yada and ended up here working as a dispatcher.
i was first introduced to folding and it captured me right away. the idea of being able to support a major sience project from my own home with the mere unused time of my computer was all it took to convince me.
i also started crunching but i have not yet found a good setup that i could just let crunch away. i fold for different teams and also created my own team 53269
i folded for HWA, and i currently fold for PNY and my team.
i am not directly effected by cancer or my family but i had family members pass from other illnesses and i know how it is to lose someone special and/or close to you, so if there is even so much as a very slim chance to prevent that or prolong it then i think it's an effort well worth it.

Well a lot of you already know me. Ive been here at TPU for a few years, most of that time just a silent reader. Been active the last year or so.
My name is Donavon. Im 38 (just turned March 1) I live in Washington State in the small town of Goldendale (same town as GREASEMONKEY). I own a small HVAC/R company that keeps me way too busy most of the time. I got into computers because I am the type of person that has to know how things work. :D
I got into crunching a few months ago to try and give back to the medical world. My father is a 3 time cancer survivor (prostrate, lung and brain). I saw the amazing technology that they use up close and personal. My family has a running history of cancer on both sides, so I am doing this also for my future and my kids futures. Ive met a lot of really good people here at TPU and plan on staying around for awhile. TPU WCG FTW! :toast:

Hi all! My real name is Dan, 24. Ever since I hosted a couple of servers for other students at university KieX has also become my real life nickname and monicker for my wish to help others with my computers. I had read TPU forums and news for years and in december joined the forum and WCG team simultaneously. Just recently joined the F@H team as well.

My experience with cancer is a mixed one. I lost the teacher who inspired me as a teenager to cancer, but on the other hand my father has had cancer twice and beat it. It seems cancer is a family thing so these projects may benefit me one day as much as others.

In real life I have commitment issues with everything, so I'm always changing jobs, countries, hobbies and so on. I have been fortunate that my closest friends and family have always been there though. These projects are possibly one of the first things that I have felt can remain constant in my otherwise varied life.

I hope to stay with the team and commited to the project till it's impossible to do so :D

Just to introduce myself. I'm Neil , was 41 January this year. Production Supervisor at a small company making adhesives that serves uk and Worldwide. Any of you from over the pond heard of Insulate Industries in Seattle, Ferco in Quebec, or G.U. Industries ?

I'm now beginning to really get into PC's having met my other half on the net in AOLChat/Msn Messenger... We're still together after 8 years!

I crunch daily for TPU after reading about it on here and having family members suffer from cancer, I also have WCG running on the works PC (don't tell anyone lol) I just like to do my little bit to help, and I am very grateful for the advice from all of you, and reading other posts from other members has often helped me out :rockout:

I have even used the forum to help me sort out other peoples PCs.

I must say I am glad to be a member of the forum and will hopefully see Panther x12 at the Dabs .com live show this weekend .

You guys all deserve a :toast:

Hi everyone. My name as you must surmise is Mike. I will be 44 in April. I live on a farm just north of Edmonton, Alberta. Moved back after my dad died so my mom could stay.
Just got back into computers after a long time. My first was a tandy model one I bought myself new when I was 13.
Joined WCG to help others and to justify all the computer power I have and will add to over time.

Have great respect for the people in this forum and hope I can contribute to it.
THX MIKE B.

Hey guys!! My name is Marc and i will be 34 in April 14. I live in Kingston, Ontario. Well i got into computers as a kid and really liked them. BUT, things fell apart and I became homeless and fell into bad habits from about 1993-2000. I cleaned up and turned my life around and needed something to fill the void. I do WCG for no other reason than that i think its important and useful research.

Well, I've been a TPU member since May 2007 if my memory serves me well - right now I'm a 34 year old with a 7 y/old daughter and a husband, and I run my own business.

No one in my near/extended family is afflicted with cancer, muscular dystrophy or any other fatal/heavily debilitating disease.
I decided to start contributing to WCG after reading about Loonym :( that compounded with other experiences of mine.

I can understand what it feels like to have someone in hospital. My daughter suffers from severe asthma, no matter how careful we are to keep her away from allergens in 7 years we took her 4 times to the main hospital, as an emergency case, where her oxygen level was found to be in the danger zone of the 70's (it should be over 90), I'd spend 3-5 days with her at hospital days and nights while she gets oxygen and ventolin treatments every hour, then every two, then every three, till she gets weaned off... When she was a baby and later a toddler it wasn't that serious, she'd get short-breath, I'd give her her inhalers, they wouldn't work, I'd take her 3 or 4 times to the clinic for an hour treatment with oxygen, ventolin and pulmicort and she'd be fine after the treatments.

But then when she got older we'd be taking her to the clinic for treatments, they won't work, after 30 minutes she'd be gasping for breath, and we'd have no choice except going to the emergency of the hospital. She'd need to spend between 4 - 7 days and nights at the hospital and I'd stay next to her all the time.
I'd be going blue myself from holding the tears back so as not to make her panic, before I see her breathing stabilise. Only then I might able to get a couple of hours sleep on the reclining sofa next to her hospital bed.

Now it's heartbreaking when you see your beloved baby gasping for breath, it's terrifying even if one is in hospital let alone if you're still on the way and your kid is gasping and going blue in the face :( One might justly say that asthma is nothing compared with fatalities occuring in more serious diseases like cancer etc, but sadly too often 'mistakes' occur like some doctor diagnoses croup, and after 2 days the kid dies for the low oxygen, other times the parents didn't realise the urgency of the situation and/or didn't make it to hospital in time, with the result that their child suffocated before they managed to get help :( This latter instance has always been my horror ever since my kid had her first attack at 6 months.

I can imagine how much more heartbreaking would it be were a child, heaven forbid, to start suffering from some condition which as of now is defined as uncurable. I've always put my mind at rest that as long as I got my kid to hospital in time she'd be safe and she can recover.

But in the cases of diseases which we crunch for it's not that simple.
That's why I decided to start giving my utmost here, and am sad that I hadn't started earlier.

Hopefully one day such diseases, even though always heart-breaking, will share the same hopes of recovery as other curable ailments.

I will keep contributing in the hope that a cure be found.

Well, I've been a TPU member since May 2007 if my memory serves me well - right now I'm a 34 year old with a 7 y/old daughter and a husband, and I run my own business.

No one in my near/extended family is afflicted with cancer, muscular dystrophy or any other fatal/heavily debilitating disease.
I decided to start contributing to WCG after reading about Loonym :( that compounded with other experiences of mine.

I can understand what it feels like to have someone in hospital. My daughter suffers from severe asthma, no matter how careful we are to keep her away from allergens in 7 years we took her 4 times to the main hospital, as an emergency case, where her oxygen level was found to be in the danger zone of the 70's (it should be over 90), I'd spend 3-5 days with her at hospital days and nights while she gets oxygen and ventolin treatments every hour, then every two, then every three, till she gets weaned off... When she was a baby and later a toddler it wasn't that serious, she'd get short-breath, I'd give her her inhalers, they wouldn't work, I'd take her 3 or 4 times to the clinic for an hour treatment with oxygen, ventolin and pulmicort and she'd be fine after the treatments.

But then when she got older we'd be taking her to the clinic for treatments, they won't work, after 30 minutes she'd be gasping for breath, and we'd have no choice except going to the emergency of the hospital. She'd need to spend between 4 - 7 days and nights at the hospital and I'd stay next to her all the time.
I'd be going blue myself from holding the tears back so as not to make her panic, before I see her breathing stabilise. Only then I might able to get a couple of hours sleep on the reclining sofa next to her hospital bed.

Now it's heartbreaking when you see your beloved baby gasping for breath, it's terrifying even if one is in hospital let alone if you're still on the way and your kid is gasping and going blue in the face :( One might justly say that asthma is nothing compared with fatalities occuring in more serious diseases like cancer etc, but sadly too often 'mistakes' occur like some doctor diagnoses croup, and after 2 days the kid dies for the low oxygen, other times the parents didn't realise the urgency of the situation and/or didn't make it to hospital in time, with the result that their child suffocated before they managed to get help :( This latter instance has always been my horror ever since my kid had her first attack at 6 months.

I can imagine how much more heartbreaking would it be were a child, heaven forbid, to start suffering from some condition which as of now is defined as uncurable. I've always put my mind at rest that as long as I got my kid to hospital in time she'd be safe and she can recover.

But in the cases of diseases which we crunch for it's not that simple.
That's why I decided to start giving my utmost here, and am sad that I hadn't started earlier.

Hopefully one day such diseases, even though always heart-breaking, will share the same hopes of recovery as other curable ailments.

I will keep contributing in the hope that a cure be found.
I would throw a thousand thanks on this post if i could.Having two daughters of my own,i could only grasp a little of what you must go through.
There are no emoticons that will fit here,So i'll just say my thought's are with you and your family.

Thanks for the support guys. It's darn frustrating knowing that for normal people a sniffle would be a common cold but for her it'd trigger tightening of the bronchial tubes and the further pneum branches with resulting asthma and an actual death risk if we don't act quickly enough. Sometimes I almost think this is like stupid (kinda like too simple to be true?), what has my daughter done to deserve all this suffering? :/

Even very minor stuff hurts, like I myself have a runny nose one day, and yet I persist in keeping distance from her - and way too often I can't make her understand why and she cries.. It just doesn't make sense.

Many years ago I lived with a woman whose son had chronic asthma before we were together and just as you describe they would have to rush him to the ER in the middle of the night. He was better when we were together but still had to do the breathing treatments and meds. He has been fine for years now so it CAN get better!

Nothing more terrifying than watching your suffer so and so little you can do. I had 3 daughters and now have 7 grand kids. I've learned to do more praying and giving thanks but it is hard to not worry.

Do you mind if I link your story on my web site? www.poppageek.com. If not that is ok. Thanks for sharing your story. :)
