I use to crunch seti in the classic days. I held on for awhile when boinc came around. Didn't really feel like being a guinea pig for boinc so I took the door out and got into folding. Deep space mapping just didn't mean much to my cpu cycles. The weather prediction thing sounds good. And if the cures are ever found I may move the the weather dohicky.
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.
I think the nerdiest thing I'm into right now is fuel economy. Most people understand the concept of building or rebuilding a computer and overclocking for faster performance, but making a pickup get better fuel economy is like tracking UFOs to most people: "Good luck!"
Did you know that the UFO above get's over 60 LYDC .
(If you can figure out the acronym, you're a nerd)
I thought Devil left on his own in spring of 2006. When did he get banned?
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.)
