Just joined techspot while looking for a solution to the problem of my main computer bsod'ing randomly. About me: I've worked in computers for 33 years, starting out as a US Air Force maintenance technician for a 2nd generation mainframe system. My full biography is available on my family web site: http://www.harding-family.org I am currently working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in computer operations, where I monitor some of the fastest supercomputers in the world, including BlueGene/L, the number 1 machine on the latest Top500 list just out. I am a regular on Wikipedia, editing artlcles about Livermore, LLNL, and ham radio, which is one of my other interests.
