I am a 57 year old wreck. Until November 2008 I was a professional software engineer, on the 27th, I had a heart attack, my heart stopped for 46 minutes and I now exist as the brain damaged wreckage, (anoxic damage), of what I was. I am no longer capable of doing my job, and have difficulties with even the simplest mental activities.
Your opinions about BOINC
I've run BOINC since it started, and the Seti@Home program before that. I run it because I can, and am sure many others would if they knew about it and how easy it was.
My suggestion would be to make more people aware of it's existence and ease.
