I was born between Gemini mission 8 and 9.
Married, 3 sons, living on the Normandy sea shore.
Spend my free time in fishing, computing, taking care of my sons and wyfe.
Great family interest in nature's observations.
I hate wasting my time. That's probably why I make my computer working at 100 % with usefull Boinc projects.
1/ I started computing 20 years ago, with a 86286 + 287 at 12 MHz.
Today my PC is enough powerfull to spend 99% of its time waiting to do something. So I use Boinc and choose several projects related to Astronomy to use this time at something usefull. And my PC still run perfectly.
2/ understanding better the universe.
3/ more explainations about the files we are crunching. for exemple : what are a Global Correlation file ? What are the differences between a 3.02, 3.08, 3.11 file ? What are we crunching ?
It is hard to do something without knowing exactly what you're doing.
Does E@H studying only binary systems or also simple systems ?
More explainantions will be welcome.
