Iron Folder Interview
What is your OCAU username & Folding name?
doodz / d00dz
What is the meaning or significance of your OCAU username, if any?
None. It was cool using 00’s instead of oo’s back in the prime days of the internet
Which month and year did you win Iron Folder?
How many F@H points do you have?
How many boxen do you have? Break this number down between borgs and your personal machines.
5 - 5 Machines..I dont like the term ‘borg’.
When did you start folding for Team 24?
I dont remember, back before 2004, maybe 2002, when the AMD Athlon’s were the crazy. XP-M 1800 DLT3C, TBred’s etc...
What is your average F@H points per month?
5 million maybe
Any other DC projects?
No, used to do UD for money but that closed.
How many boxen do you have running the following clients?
regular client — 0
SMP client — 3
GPU client — 4
PS3 client — 0
What operating system do you primarily use?
Windows 7 Professional
Full Time IRC / Bored person. lol :D - Do I have to say?
LEGO!, Cars, Music, Internet obviously.
Are you married, single, etc?
Does your significant other, assuming you have one, support your F@H activities?
Don't assume, it’s bad for you!
Congratulations on being chosen the Iron Folder for the month. How does it feel to be chosen by your peers for such a prestigious award?
Pretty cool. Yay!. But can I stay as a quiet hidden folder from now on?
Why do you think you were chosen?
Because all the other pro folders already won previous months. lol -.-
Why do you participate in Folding?
Hopefully to cure some diseases, and because I like stats and numbers and fancy graphs. Oh and what else to use computers and overclock them for?
If Folding could find a cure for just one disease tomorrow, which one would it be and why?
Aids? No particular reason.
What would you like Team 24, to know about you, that might surprise them?
I dont know. I have nothing surprising to tell, everyone knows my secrets.
Where do you see your folding activities in the next year or two?
Hopefully the same, unless there is a massive hot hot hot heatwave which makes my room hot. Then otherwise it may stay the same.
Have you been successful borging? If so, what kind of borging worked for you? (For example, friends, family, and/or work?)
Ermm.... I dont like the term borging. Prefer it being “using the machine for good”. I have 2 linux machines which just sit there munching on work, and 2 more machines in a server room gpu’ing away.
Any ideas on improving the DC subforum, or suggestions or improvements for our Team?
Re-do the folding@home website and make it fancy and ‘updated’?
What challenges have you faced in your F@H efforts?
The heat that the machines produce. Also the whineeeeeeeee that the GPU’s make. As well as units sometimes dying or crashing. And any unit’s that arent 6903/6904! lol.
How much do you spend on F@H? If you consider equipment, electricity, and other activities that support F@H... how much of your life has DC’ing consumed?
I dont know. A fair bit? :(
Do you have friends, family, or neighbors that know about your F@H activities? What do they think?
No. Well a friend does and he just goes ‘oh folding lol waste of money’.
Do you game? If so, how long and what types do you prefer? Consoles or PC?
Not really no time, unless you count flash games and games on my phone. Oh Coin Dozer!! Level 206! yay!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I have a dream that one day this....... wait what.. no that’s Martin Luther King.. Nope nothing to add. Maybe GOOO TEAM?
Hai #team24 people!
On behalf of Team 24, I thank you as well for your contributions to this team and I thank you for your time to talk about it. Keep on folding!
