|Your personal background.|
|I have a background in computers and have a degree in MIS (management information systems) I grew up on old TI-99/4a. Remember typing in programs out of Byte Magazine, and remember using the first Apple's in school with the green screens.|
Nowadays I prefer using Open Source, and Linux, have used TrueOS, as well as Freebsd, I have various certificates in Cybersecurity, as well as in Linux for Novel, and at one time was LPIC 1 certified.
I remember when Usenet used to be a thing, and remember the power of alt binary newsgroups, to this day feel kind of bad that I have to go to reddit to find threads of interest. I still haven't registered to that site and probably won't for some time until they become more open, and less repressive to conservative groups.
I usually have a linux computer up most times and use windows for game playing, and work related things. I have given up on trying to convert my coworkers to linux, and I somehow have found that I am the desktop help desk to some folks.
I am an AMD fan, and have a Ryzen r7 setup, as well as an older AMD FX quad core machine for linux use. My only Intel cpu machine was an I3, which is now used my other family members. I like choice in the marketplace and look forward to what the future will return.
|Your opinions about PrimeGrid|
|I decided to get back into BOINC, back in the day had my computers on the Boinc network, but moving and real life took it's toll so had to drop my computing. When I search Boinc I can find my old username and for some time I was in the top 2 or 3 cruncher's on my team.|
So now I figured would give PrimeGrid a go and give it some cycles, I built a new Amd Ryzen system and could not figure out what to do to keep it busy so decided my hand at GridCoin, and PrimeGrid for now since I can work from home I can keep a good eye on things, and let time be my friend.
