Greetings. I am guessing that you are at this site because you clicked
on a URL for a Boinc OS/2 Warp Group. I am the "founder" of a few of
these sites. Founder is probably not the correct term and I prefer
For a couple of theses sites I applied for the "founder" position when
the site advertised that it was looking for a new person, probably
because the original founder was no longer active or something like
that. Anyway this site
serves at least two purposes. First the "founder" in these sites I
administer only shows a first name and I would like to expand on that
and secondly I now have an excuse to play with some new web developer
software. My name is John Bilbro and I live primarily in the Northern
part of a state of the USA called Wyoming. Here in the USA a person who
goes to the Southern climes in Winter is known as a Snowbird. I go to
Arizona in the Winter. By that
you can guess that I am retired. I got started in personal computers in
February of 1982 shortly after IBM's announcement (in August 1981) that
they were going to produce a personal computer. I worked all my
vocational stint in life in the data processing industry (main frames)
first as a programmer, then systems programmer and finaly operations
So the announcement of a personal computer was great stuff for me.
Since mainframes did multitasking I also wanted a PC that did this and
jumped on board with OS/2 version 2.0. While OS/2 itself is no longer
supported by IBM, an improved version is marketed by Serenity Systems
The following OS/2 Group projects are administered by me:
- CPDN Seasonal Attribution
- Collatz Conjecture
- World Community Grid
Climateprediction.net was founded by Toonho from Malaysia.
World Community Grid was founded by Icerny.
Seti@home was originally founded by Timur Tabi and I offer my
thanks for the chance to be the group administrator for it. Most
everyone familiar with OS/2 and Seti in the "early" days of the
Seti at home project (1999) will remember how active Timur was.
So that is about it, except in the following line I will give you a coded way to send me your comments.
