Profile: Pooh Bear 27

Your personal background.
I am in my middle 40's, with 2 children, and 1 grandchild. I have been married over 20 years. I have been using computers since the middle 70's, when I got behind a teletype terminal dialed into a PDP/11-45 over 110 baud in Junior High School for the first time. I then started getting into programming in High School. Languages I prgrammed have been, several versions of BASIC, COBOL (Watbol), RPG II, Fortran, PL/1, and C.<br><br>
I have owned a computer almost constantly from 1980-current. Started with a Heathkit H-89/90 that we built in a basement. I currently have 5 Intel and 1 Mac running at home.<br><br>
I have always worked with computers as a job in some form or another. I originally started out as a General Office/Computer Operator, and then moved into working with an ISP, Office Management, Teaching, and Systems &amp; Network Administration.
Your opinions about climateprediction.net
I had originally found the old Seti program many years back. I never joined up, but then finally did in July 2003. Then Boinc came along, and I moved to the Seti version of that, and was happy. Seti has had it's issues, and so I decided that since my computers have some idle time (especially the faster ones), I would add on another project. I looked over several projects, and decided CPDN would suit me best.<br><br>
I am hoping we find out how forgiving our planet is, and that we will not see something rotten happening to our little corner of the universe.<br><br>
I have not studied what we are calculation, but I hope that the calculations we are doing are accurately looking at everything they can. Polution, changes in positioning in orbit, and whatever else that should be factored in.<br><br>
The WU are large, and I hope I never crash the computers that run the WUs.
