TC Member Introduction - Page 10

post #91 of 204
Hey, all, I'm Frank (but even my friends call me WonderMutt or just Mutt). I live just outside of Cincinnati, OH and have become addicted to folding over the last year and a half. I'm 29 and am getting ready to celebrate my 5 year anniversary with my wife in October (a week after my 30th B-day, how cool is that!?). We've been together for just over 13 years now (she was 14 and I was 16 when we first started dating).

I am a Systems Configuration Analyst for a specialty insurance company (basically I configure the rating systems we use for agents to quote in, its very cool if you're a geek like me). I've worked for the company for 7 1/2 years now and spent the first 7 as an inside insurance agent, which was cool because I got to get licensed in all 50 states and I think insurance is fascinating! I've spent the last 6 months in my current role and I'm still technically in training (it’s crazy, but I love the work I do). It was hard for me to get into our IT department as my degree is in Political Science and History, so I really had to convince them I knew what I was doing even though I'm self taught. But, the work I've done with and because of folding actually helped me land my position (which is really fricken sweet). It was really neat to pull up my HFM and EOC stats on my phone during the interview, explain to them what folding was and that I was almost in the top 1,000 folders of the world by total points. Because of folding I've developed a basic understanding of Linux (Ubuntu) and my computer skills have really taken off.

Right now the company is paying for me to go back to school to get my Associate Degree in IT and they will cover up to about $5,500 a year in school cost (so long as it is for a computer related degree), so I'll probably stay in school indefinitely now! I'm a huge geek, and this really excites me, I've been trying to go back since I graduated in 2008, but I couldn't afford it!! I start back on 08/27 and I couldn't be more pumped!!

As for folding, I fell into it last year thanks to zodac. I was working on building my first new build in 10 years, my 2500k TC rig, and I found OCN while I was still in the research phase. After reading so much on here about OCing and folding, I decided to build a folding rig and zodac was a lot of help getting set up. Then, in August of last year, he/she/it convinced me to join the TC and I've never looked back!! Since I started folding, I've managed to build a 2500k rig, a 2700k rig, a 3570k rig and acquired 2 laptops to fold on (all in the quest for more points!!!). To say that I'm addicted would be a gross understatement.

Now that I've learned what its all about, I've made it one of my goals to try to get as many people as possible into folding and to try to help get as many people as I can set up. I've made videos (posted here on OCN) about how to set up different clients, HFM, virtual machines, etc. I've also gone so far as to use TeamViewer to log into people’s systems and set up their folding clients for them when they are having trouble.

Outside of computers and folding, I don't really do much. My wife is in the newspaper industry, so we only see each other on the weekends (she works nights, I work days). I usually spend one night a week hanging out with friends at coffee houses either writing (short stories) or BSing, the rest of the time I'm either working on my rigs or watching movies in our home theater. We spent two years perfecting it (since my wife and I are both huge movie buffs) and now have a dedicated theater in our home with a 122 inch screen (amazing for PS3 games too!!).

Anyway, that's me and if anyone ever needs help with (almost) anything related to folding let me know, I'm always happy to help!!!


EDIT: Sorry for the long post! My wife's biggest complaint with me is that I don't know when to shut up! tongue.gif

Hey guys, I guess it's time I weigh in here!

My name is Joe, no not Carlos, I'm 26 married no children (YET) and have two cats (one of which is awesome) and a 100 pound chocolate lab who is absolutely insane. I'm the captain of the Dark Predators F@H TC Team here on OCN...and I will argue that I have the best team in the competition! I have a bachelors in Information Security (Penn State), and I'm halfway through my masters of science in Cyber Security (Univ Maryland). I work as an IT Security consultant for an awesome small company just outside of Baltimore MD.

I fold because my wife had breast cancer at a young age (thank God they caught it early), and my grandfather died from colon cancer. I'm also fairly addicted to folding, and have to keep telling my wife I'm curing cancer single handedly in order to buy new hardware. biggrin.gif

I love anything techy, I'm a huge geek/nerd, but I also love the outdoors. I'm into skiing, paintballing, caving, fishing, kayaking, camping, and ultimate frisbee, and I'm hugely involved in my churches 20-somethings group (which also does a lot of outdoorsy things). I love to tinker and will pretty much destroy anything (or submerge it in baby oil see sig) to prove a theory or just out of curiosity.

Oh yes and I use the go-pro for my ski trips and caving trips see below:


EDIT:
This is my awesome cat:

Dude, i got claustraphobic just watching that!!!

Yeah, here's a pic from right behind our seats (if you go to my profile and look through my gallery there are more pics)...

900x900px-LL-3b6956bf_image3.jpeg

And HERE is a link to a walkthrough I did of my office and home theater a while back. We've spent a lot of time working on it and now we can finally enjoy it. Almost our entire basement is movie themed (except my office and the storage area), so we have quite a few movie posters hung up, a few movie props and decorations (all my old Star Wars figures now line part of our DVD shelves), popcorn machine, etc. As we wanted it to be a dedicated theater (and not a really nice family room), we made the decision not to hook up cable to it, so it is strictly for watching movies and playing PlayStation. But, as my wife and I don't watch much TV, this is great. The only thing I don't like is the wood paneling, but that was there when we bought the house and I wasn't going to spend the time and money to rip it out and drywall the place.

Sorry, I just really love showing it off. It was a TON of work to get it done right, but in the end, it was actually pretty cheap (not including the seats, I was able to do the whole thing for about $1,500, as I built the screen, got the projector and mount on the cheap, used the surround sound system we had in our living room and did all the work myself). If anyone wants some tips on how to do something similar, let me know (I did a LOT of research before I started and then figured out a few tricks along the way).

Let me know when you get ready to, I can give some pointers on the screen.

I looked at buying a screen, but for a nice grey screen at 100 inches they started at $700. Contrary to what most people think, you don't want to use a white screen for a theater (low light) setting, it washes out the blacks, they are meant more for using in well lit areas, like a class room, to be brighter, but lose contrast and definition. When I did my research I found that I could build a wall and use special paint and save a ton of money. There are companies out there that sell screen paint, but they charge about $150+ a gallon, however, Behr Paints makes a color called Silverscreen meant for home theater use. You have to have it mixed in an exterior flat (gives the highest definition).

Then the major parts are getting the wall perfectly smooth (2 days of sanding for me) and then outlining the actual screen. Some people use black felt (which is the optimal choice), but I didn't want a ring of felt on the wall, just though that would look dumb, so I went with flat black paint. I just projected a white image on the wall (pulled up Google on the PS3) and then used masking tape to outline the picture. This took my wife and I about 4 hours to do because we wanted it to be perfect (the flat black paint obsorbs any stray light around the screen and gives higher definition around the edges). In the end we spent $165 on the screen and it looks as good (if not better) than our Sony Bravia TV in our living room. The wall itself is 10 feet wide and 8 feet tall, the screen is 9 feet wide (I left 6 inches on either side to mount the speakers), I can't remember the hight, but it is a perfect 16:9 aspect ratio. Throw a BR on that and it is AMAZING!

I also helped a friend of mine build 100" mobile screen for his living room. It is build just like mine, but is on a frame that can hang on the wall. He a 55" flat panel mounted on the wall, but when he wants to watch a football game or a movie, he can hang the screen (actually fits right over the TV on wall mounts we installed) and then switch to the projector. Its actually a pretty neat setup.

We've been together for just over 13 years now (she was 14 and I was 16 when we first started dating).
I am a Systems Configuration Analyst for a specialty insurance company (basically I configure the rating systems we use for agents to quote in, its very cool if you're a geek like me). I've worked for the company for 7 1/2 years now and spent the first 7 as an inside insurance agent, which was cool because I got to get licensed in all 50 states and I think insurance is fascinating! I've spent the last 6 months in my current role and I'm still technically in training (it’s crazy, but I love the work I do). It was hard for me to get into our IT department as my degree is in Political Science and History, so I really had to convince them I knew what I was doing even though I'm self taught. But, the work I've done with and because of folding actually helped me land my position (which is really fricken sweet). It was really neat to pull up my HFM and EOC stats on my phone during the interview, explain to them what folding was and that I was almost in the top 1,000 folders of the world by total points. Because of folding I've developed a basic understanding of Linux (Ubuntu) and my computer skills have really taken off.
Right now the company is paying for me to go back to school to get my Associate Degree in IT and they will cover up to about $5,500 a year in school cost (so long as it is for a computer related degree), so I'll probably stay in school indefinitely now! I'm a huge geek, and this really excites me, I've been trying to go back since I graduated in 2008, but I couldn't afford it!! I start back on 08/27 and I couldn't be more pumped!!
As for folding, I fell into it last year thanks to zodac. I was working on building my first new build in 10 years, my 2500k TC rig, and I found OCN while I was still in the research phase. After reading so much on here about OCing and folding, I decided to build a folding rig and zodac was a lot of help getting set up. Then, in August of last year, he/she/it convinced me to join the TC and I've never looked back!! Since I started folding, I've managed to build a 2500k rig, a 2700k rig, a 3570k rig and acquired 2 laptops to fold on (all in the quest for more points!!!). To say that I'm addicted would be a gross understatement.
Now that I've learned what its all about, I've made it one of my goals to try to get as many people as possible into folding and to try to help get as many people as I can set up. I've made videos (posted here on OCN) about how to set up different clients, HFM, virtual machines, etc. I've also gone so far as to use TeamViewer to log into people’s systems and set up their folding clients for them when they are having trouble.
Outside of computers and folding, I don't really do much. My wife is in the newspaper industry, so we only see each other on the weekends (she works nights, I work days). I usually spend one night a week hanging out with friends at coffee houses either writing (short stories) or BSing, the rest of the time I'm either working on my rigs or watching movies in our home theater. We spent two years perfecting it (since my wife and I are both huge movie buffs) and now have a dedicated theater in our home with a 122 inch screen (amazing for PS3 games too!!).
Anyway, that's me and if anyone ever needs help with (almost) anything related to folding let me know, I'm always happy to help!!!
EDIT: Sorry for the long post! My wife's biggest complaint with me is that I don't know when to shut up! tongue.gif

I guess I can introduce myself a bit too,

My name is Arvid (imaginative user name, right?) and was born in the wonderful year of '86 in Stockholm, Sweden, currently living in Hälsingland, in the middle of Sweden for all you foreigners. I am The Postman right now which doesn't pay that well tbh, but as it's pretty active job I don't have to spend my free time on "such" hobbies (though I don't mind biking, skiing or swimming). No woman, children or pets of the normal sort to weigh me down (I'd guess you'd call that 'single'). I'm a huge reggae fan and can't get enough of Mr Marley.

I think my interest in computers began sometime in the early 90's, we had a 8088 which a relative gave us. I built my first computer (together with my older brother) mid/late-90's (can't remember what CPU it was though). My computer interest was pretty big in my school years but my car interest started to increase during gymnasium ("high-school") which pretty much took all my time (and the little money I had) for several years. These past few years though, my love for computers have pretty much exploded, I mainly is interested in the hardware. In 2009 I had a P4 660 as my only computer (which was my dads old rig), now I have: 2700K, 2*X6 and a very special build running and could piece together: 3570K, Phenom II X4, Athlon II X2 and 3*P4 (and I've got three spare 2500K CPU's here somewhere too...) with stuff that I just have laying around, lol.

My interest in folding began sometime in 2010 and I bought a 8800GTS which needed a new cap that had been broken off, a 9800GTX soon got added and I pretty much was hooked after that. I joined the TC in July 2011 with my 6970 in Laundromatic, switched to X6/2500K (now Cat3 for you youngsters) with my X6 and later 2500. Now I'm rocking a 2700K in i7-2. I don't remember why I got interested in folding in the first place, but I've come to appreciate the competition and community side of it, and of course I hope to aid in the understanding (and possible cure) of horrible deceases, my grandma was diagnosed with cancer a few years back but survived and is back to her energetic self.

The car interest have survived and currently I have three cars in various state of completion (they never get "ready" and that's how I like it).

Well, that's me...

Another Type 1 owner! wheee.gif I currently got a black '58 which is my daily commuter when weather permits (i.e. late spring to early autumn) and is under sort of rolling restoration. Previous aircooled godness include a '67 Type 1, two '73 Supers, a '74 Super and a '75 Bay Bus.

My name is Jason, im 25 and I live in Rochester New Hampshire with my Fiance of 6 years ( getting married next July). Just built my first real computer in July and started folding at the same time, but didnt start tc till last Friday. Im an ase certified mechanic in a family owned garage that just celebtated its 100 year anniversary (it was epic, had bigfoot crushing cars, live music and fireworks) I can do anything to a car from computer diagnostics to engine swaps. My hobbies our computers, video games and cars.

Still getting the hang of folding and tc and have been tweaking around with it but but soon hope to be pumping out some serious points with my i5 2500k , and if all goes to plan i may have an i7 rig going by the end of the year.

Nice to have a car-guy on the team. thumb.gif
