[O/C]Overclockers Folding@Home Team Spotlight #86

Overclockers Folding@Home Team Spotlight #86
by dfonda

Our Folding@Home Team has been running member spotlights for quite some time Ė this is the 86th feature in our series of Folding Spotlights!

Thank you for the interview Jolly-Swagman!

Dfonda: When did you join the Team Jolly ?
Jolly-Swagman : Sept 21 2007 I joined after talking to ADAK. I started Folding shortly after. Jolly's EOC Stats.

D: If there was something recent that you did that you wanted your fellow team members to know about, what would it be?
JS: Just recently built another Tech Bench for my "Garage Workshop Testing" area. Here is the "Work log thread". When my new Motherboard arrives I will use it for benching and more folding!

D: What part of the world do you live in, and if you donít mind telling, what town?
JS: Australia, Victoria, Wonthaggi. Which is a coastal community 170Km South of Melbourne.

D: How did you initially hear about F@H?
JS: From our esteemed member ADAK!

D: After starting, why do you continue to Fold?
JS: Mainly for the purpose that science done on Protein Folding will some day benefit those with Cancer, Diabetes, and Alzheimer's, and for the team camaraderie.

D: What do you do for a living?
JS: Currently semi retired on a DSP Pension.

D: What do you do for fun?
JS: Case modding, some "Gaming" and Photography.

D: Is there anything special you do in your spare time that you really enjoy?
JS: Case Modding!! (D: OK...this guy likes to Case Mod!! lol )

D: Time to spill your guts. What are the stats of your main folding rig? Why is it your favorite? What all do you use the rig for?
JS: 20K ppd Q6600 with GTX-295 folding SMP2 and GPU2 x 2. Everyday use, Photoshop/Graphics, and Gaming.

D: Do you have a Borg-Farm? If so, how many, and what are they?
JS: 3 Yes I have 7 PC's Q6600@3.2GHZ 4GB RAM, GTX 295. 2 E6550@3GHZ 4GB RAM 9800GT's512mb. E6700@3GHZ 4GB RAM 8800GT512mb. E2200@3GHZ 2GB RAM 8800GT256mb. E8400@3GHZ 4GB RAM. E8500@3.2GHZ 4GB RAM 8800GT and a P4 541@3.2GHZ 2GB RAM currently Folding on Rosetta.

D: What are your future goals? What do you most want to accomplish with your life?
JS: As far as folding, hopefully be able to continue and reach 20Mil, with rising costs of electricity here, I have to rebuild some of my rigs to dual GPU Mobo's. This will help cut back on operating costs. I can't see us getting anything new high tech wise Like I7's as they are way to dear here, still.

For life....well just glad I have a wonderful lady to live out the rest of my days with. What more could a man ask for?

D: If there is something you want to tell the team, then spill your guts! What have I missed in my questions that could help the team learn more about you and who you are?
JS: Well I did try to recruit some of my friends into folding over at NewModCity where I am also on the staff. They decided they wanted to start their own Team. So I helped them get started. They are Team 177077. Check out some of my "Case Mods" here on OCF and NMC, then you will see...I am just a guy who likes computers whether to Fold, OC or case mod, or just generally help out with keeping them running. I am also a Folding Mentor.
