Did you know? I have never been to Nebraska, Iowa, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, or American Samoa; nor have I been to New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, or Nunavut; nor to any countries but the USA (duh), Canada (duh), the Bahamas, and the Netherlands Antilles (St. Maarten, Dutch side). I've not even been to Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana (the last 3 even though I live in North Carolina!) Other than that, I've been everywhere, man...
Lest you think I have any political correctness in me at all, my favorite sports teams are the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Braves (and UNC Tarheels). I also like the Kansas City Chiefs to a degree, and the Chicago Blackhawks are ok with me due to their storied history. We all need to be less PC...
...And I am a true Confederate and proud Southerner. Even though I'm half-Northern. No twang, no redneck, no saying y'all (it's you all lol). But the real Flag, the Southern Cross, flies at my house, and I say this proudly. Our colors don't run, either. The South shall rise again. When it does, we'll be that much knowledgeable from the activities at BOINC.
Also, I'm 1/4 Hungarian, 1/16 or so Cherokee Indian, probably some German, and British totally... lol...
|Your opinions about PrimeGrid|
|Prime numbers, if they can help expand mathematical knowledge, seem to be a good field to research...|
I have experimented with several DC projects offered by BOINC, seeing which ones produced the most results and were most deserving of my unused flops. Right now, I'm dabbling in some minor projects, including this one (not to say it's unimportant), while keeping my focus on Collatz and Einstein. I'm also running WU Properties full time, as it's not CPU-intensive.
I'm also high on the medical side of things. Most of my time has historically gone to cancer research. You have to wonder, though, how much of an impact numbers make, being digital, to a non-digital entity like the human body. However, those projects are quite worthy of flops...
I also back stopping NEO's from hitting us. I hope Orbit gets some more WU's someday...
