Your personal background.
Hi. I'm a 35 year old Revenue Protection Professional (a Railway Tickety-Dog) from Brisbane, Australia. I got my nickname Lemur from co-workers, who think I'm the "office lemur". Does this mean I'm ambitious, extroverted and upwardly-mobile? No - I just like to climb things and show off my bottom!

My real name is Aaron.

I think BOINC presents a fantastic opportunity for ordinary people (like me) to participate in extraordinary scientific research projects.

I'm a project developer and tester at Hydrogen@Home. H2@H is currently in alpha test phase, but we'd love you to come and visit us.

I'm hoping that some clever person out there will develop a distributed computing research project (using BOINC of course!) into the El Nino / Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon that affects my part of the world. If you're interested in ENSO, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology has a lot of interesting information available, as well as commentary about the current ENSO cycle affecting Australia and other nations bordering the Pacific Ocean. Of course, Wikipedia has an excellent article on ENSO.

I'm delighted to see new BOINC projects coming online that focus on climate change and the environment. I wish the developers (Dr James Dorsey who is an outstanding project developer and scientist, and his colleagues) at APS@Home (Atmospheric Process Simulator) the very best of luck in their pursuit of a better understand of atmospheric processes and, through their research, a better world to live in!

I am currently crunching for:

My Home Computer:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4600+ (running at 2.8 GHz)
Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3 Motherboard
2 x Kingston 512Mb DDR2 667MHz RAM (Dual Channel Enabled)
Samsung SP2504C 250Gb SATAII HDD
MS Windows XP SP2
A brand new 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor (replacing my tired old 17" CRT Monitor)
Your opinions about Cosmology@Home
Well, it seems like a good idea! That's good enough for me :)
