Your personal background.
I'm a telco network engineer and an active father with four kids. I enjoy racquet sports, bicycling, hiking, sailing, the performing arts, messing with computers and reading (historical accounts, mysteries, thrillers,and science fact and fiction).

I crunched SETI@Home for years before the advent of BOINC, but stopped for some reason that I don't remember. I started BOINCing in May of 2008 and now actively participate in many projects using 4 hosts (AMD1090t/ATI5870, C2Q/GTX570, C2D, i5).

Your opinions about Asteroids@home
I really like the idea of volunteer grid/distributed computing and am happy to contribute what cycles I can. I hope that what we do genuinely helps the projects advance their respective sciences and leads to practical benefits for all. I'm most interested in the physics and astronomy projects, so A@H is a natural fit for me.
