Be it folding or seti overclockers.com would love to have you on one of there teams....

I didn't like Boinc either and tried to stick with classic for as long as I could, but boinc isn't all that bad. It uses more ram and processor power, but for more powerful computers, there isn't any noticeable performance issue.

Biking is kind of nerdy. I play lots of old Nintendo games on my computer with emulators.

He hehe, I just played "Top Gear" for Super Nintendo tonight. Not too many "cool" people I know would get their jollies from playing 16 bit (or less) systems anymore.

Coulda swore he was banned, but maybe he left? I searched for his username and could find anything under it. But I know he has posts there... The only thing I can think of is ban4z0r4t10n.
In any event, I'm pretty sure it was because supermod started editing his post after his disagreed with 'em, and just happened to be correct.

While Devil may have treated me unfairly in some discussions, that would have been really ****ty for them to ban him. I have a lot of respect for all of the experience he has. He posted tests of a wind turbine to that board that I found extremely interesting.

I was under impression that the collective stupidity of all the luddite anti-nuclear zealots on that forum convinced him to search for greener pastures.(note: having anti-nuclear views isn't bad and not all people opposed to nuclear power are luddites, but these people were a special breed that you'd have to have seen to understand why I used those specific words. Also of note is that I myself do not favor nuclear power.)
