I am a semi-retired nuclear safety analyst, environmental health physicist, HLW/LLW management specialist.
I used to read a lot but not so much after I got bifocals (read for fun mostly in bed - lineless bifocals didn't really help). Starting to use Kindle and renew my interest in science fiction. Like rock and folk from the sixties and early seventies, blues of any vintage, and little bluegrass now and then. As you might suspect, I spend a lot of time fiddling with computers and software - still think FORTRAN is the answer to all my calculation needs but have taught Excel and Access a trick or two. Use to love craft beer and strong whiskey before I burned my gut out. Lately have gotten into Raspberries - my are all Pi 3 B+.
Your opinions about BOINC
I run a bunch of these projects to give the computers something to do when I'm not using them. At this point, not seriously into the BOINC tech or science behind the projects I run.
