I realized today my SETI account has a date of 14-July-2003. Which means I have been shrubbing more than 10 years. Now I actually did start on SETI with a different e-mail in 1999, but never shrubbed anything under that account.

I didn't know about joining teams until BOINC came about. I jumped on that bandwagon pretty quickly and when I did is when I joined you loonies and I have not been the same...strike that, looked back since.

Lets see, those 10 years, my kids are now fully living on their own. I have crossed being married more than 1/2 my life and 1/4 century of being married, had at least 4 different jobs and have crossed the 1/2 century age spot. I do not remember what old computers I had back then, but I've shrubbed from a single PC to over a dozen at one time, currently I run 5 and may pare that down as I get faster boxes and get slower at keeping up with them.

Anyway, I am happy to be in a loonie bin like this and wanted to let you all know that.

Of all the brags I've read here, that's one of the better.

CONGRATS on your ten years long service !

A special coconut is in the mail as your trophy.

Awesome stuff man. So great to see older guys still doing all this in whatever way they can. Here's to hoping things keep going so us loonies can help even more

My first box was in 1981, Healthkit H89 which I built. Started with 48K of memory. Updated it to an H90 with 64K of memory. It ran CP/M and Z-DOS.

I actually started on computers in 1975 from a teletype dialed into a PDP11/23 RSTS system.

Got to love looking at computers nearly 40 years later.

Ni + HiCrimble everyOne

I'ma gonna raise your 'Puter 'speriance and place a Pet Commodore (?) TAPE machine in there in 1978 - SO THERE . (It was owned by the company I worked for to do accounts - however - it REALLLY only played asci(?) Star Trek (remember that?) with us geeks Embarassed ) .
I was allowed to play with it (ARRgh) 'cos Da-Grizz knew (phew) university BASIC from the mainframe they (uni) had (Cannee remember make , ICL? , but had the task of "fixing" (read reattatching) their "band" teleprinter (Hewlet Packard ?) to the paralel port so I was an EXPERT there then Rolling Eyes ))))

Merry Crimble everyone

Regds Grizz .

PS : DON'T get me started on Computer languages OR Operating Systems , I knew I was Buggered'ed when I mixed up Call/Return (*) on two proggies 20 years ago , and could not for the life of me understand the debug Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
