    My name is Fred, I'm 35 and grew up on Cape Cod, MA. I'm currently a software test engineer for IBM in Tucson, AZ. I spent 8 years in the US Air Force as a network admin. I'll have my BS degree in MIS in April. (Took way too long!) Plan on going right into Masters in Computer Sciences.

    My interests are diverse. I find myself gravitating towards anything that I can learn from. Being the walking dicotomy I am, I spend almost as much time in the gym as I do on my computer! My wife says it's against IT-geek laws for us to be healthy! LOL! I SCUBA dive as often as I can, and love to explore as much of this rock we call home as my Boss and budget will allow!

    I'm a member of a MOHAA/CoD clan called the WARMONGERS.

    My name is Justin and am interested in folding. I do have some reservations about it though.

    1. I play a lot of games and do not want to hurt the performance of these games when I play them. I mean I did not buy that 9800XP to fold teh proteens!! LOLZZZ!!!!! ;D ;D

    2. How much money is awarded to the competition winners? Do you guys distribute the money you win to the team members based on what they contributed? I am going to get a 1337 machine going so I can get my points up there to get a good cut of the profits!!! :D :D :D

    Go to either ASU or U of A - Tucson is absolutely beautiful, and I lived in Tempe for years... it's a good place to live if you ignore the pollution and the gangs. California is just too expensive!

    Occupation-Printing Machine Operator(soon to be unemployed-corporate choice)
    Divorced with 1 son.



    Owned a computer for a couple of years. But just in the last year, began tweaking. I am in the process of building a dedicated Folding computer, as I feel this is a very worthwhile endevor. Like to play computer games, but I am absolutely terrible.

    When not playing with my computer, I'm out riding my mountain bikes (I have 5 of them). When the weathers bad, I'm playing racquetball. Just bought a new Chevy Xtreme pick up

    Hey, my name's Joey, and I guess I'm the newest member to this group? I'm 21, a senior @ Rice University, Houston Texas, and I've been a Car.Racing-nut ever since I learned how to change a tire. I haven't had that much experience with computer modifications; I'm usually in my garage, preparing my ride for autocross competitions. I stumbled across this site as a direct result of Creep's recommendations. Oh, and btw, I'm a Counter-Strike fiend.

    I'm a Philosophy major, with my double major being Chemistry. Until recently, I'd never really heard of F@H. I've spent way too much time working on my car, as my girlfriend can attest to fact that I smell more toxic than her nail-polish remover. Consequently, I decided to pursue other interests.

    Seti@Home has been available for a while now, but I never really found any practical use for it. I guess F@H had more of an impact on me, due to it's far-reaching effects. I know numerous people that stand to gain from this techno-marvel, and I guess that it was only right that I took part.

    I've never really been part of an online community before, so I haven't the foggiest idea of what's expected of me. If my online ettiquette seems to be way out of line, let me know. I usually don't hold grudges (unless, of course, if it means that I'd lost a trophy due to a piece of gum caught in the intake lines,) and I'd be more than happy to debate any issue.

    Now, if only I could figure out how to get F@H to actually work. :D
