Retired technology professional finally escaped from tech giants sanity intact. Except can't seem to get shut of foldit. But hopefully contributing to advancing the art of protein folding with occasional pressure on the better folders.
I don't have a science background, but, most of the stocks I trade in are in the bio or stemcell sector. The premise of this game fascinates me. ;)

I like puzzles that relate to complexity, so...
Protein Folding, Sudoku, Crosswords, Rubik's Cube, etc.
? Coffee and Tea Drinker ?
or my PC (capable of running ~5 clients) :)
Number of clients is limited by CPU, not Temperature due to efficient water cooling...

I am unfortunately retired at 45 due to medical reasons. I am a Buddhist. I used to love to run but can't anymore. I am very excited about keeping my brain sharp by doing these puzzles
Ancien responsable informatique
I like science and i like puzzles.
Diploma in Mathematics and Computer Sciences in 2001
Systemadministrator ever since.
I fold a bit.
I like to score really high, really quickly. Then I check my email and maybe do some dishes.
skype name trent.galvis1
I am now giving free foldit lesson of some sort through video chat. If you are interested, please contact me through pm or though skype
I have no idea what I'm doing.
I am a theatre historian who grew up in South Dakota, finished a bachelors degree at the U of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a PhD at the U of Washington-Seattle. Folding relaxes me and lets me use my spatial thinking.
Like Nature abhors a vacuum,
Foldit abhors an idle computer!
