There are awesome additions

There are awesome additions to the Schedule  for The 2021 BOINC Workshop.
Steven Clark from nanoHUB has been added to The World of BOINC presentations on April 14 (only 2 sleeps from now) and Max Ryabinin from Learning@home has been added to Tech Talks on April 21.

Vitalii Koshura - BOINC for Android, Steven Clark - nanoHUB (San Diego Supercomputer Center) and Max Ryabinin - Learning@home have been added to the Speakers List.

The agenda for Community Discussion + Tutorials on April 28 has not been posted yet but World Community Grid Tech Keith Uplinger has an exciting announcement for that day:
"I am planning on doing a tutorial similar to what I did in Chicago about setting up a BOINC server and running from scratch. My plan is to have it run on ubuntu 20.04 for ease of use for those to set it up."

I received my login details to Day 1, "The World of BOINC", on Wednesday, April 14  several hours ago, so they are being sent out now. Whether you're located in Hawaii or not, there's still time to Register for this free event.

I have no Videocam on my PC

I have no Videocam on my PC so I don't have to show my white hairs. Last week I taught a lesson in the Italian course of my old school, Thomas Jefferson School in St.Louis, Mo, and there were some pretty girls attending the class. I talked with them without showing my face.

I have followed all three

I have followed all three sessions and have had the pleasure of seeing many faces of people I know from the message boards. But the image that Dave Anderson used to mark his interventions was much younger then his actual face he showed.
