I'm a C#/WPF developer, but I'm still maintaining a mountain of C++/MFC code. In my day job, I'm a mild-mannered engineer (unless I haven't had my coffee), helping make control software for large, high speed ink jet printing systems. After hours, I'm a bloodthirsty mercenary, selling my skills to the highest bidder. Yes, that sentence pretty much defines the extent of my marketing ability.

In my spare time (whazzat?) I run (slowly), bike (the kind you pedal), lift weights (not very big ones), and try to remember where I left my reading glasses.

Folding@Home[^] - Distributed research

Download[^] and install the client. Enter team number 11561 in the settings for Team Code Project[^], and let it run. It eats unused CPU time, an internet connection to get new jobs from time to time, and if you let it run unattended your power bill will be a bit higher. Results of the research enter the public domain.

Why do I Fold?

I like the fact that my PC is doing something worthwhile when I'm not using it.

The team competition is fun. I'm sufficiently juvenile that I check my standing against other Code Project members every so often Blush | :O .

You know something: peterchen[^] says it best.
