peterchen - Professional Profile


    Blog RSS
Peter is tired of being called "Mr. Chen", even so certain individuals insist on it. No, he's not chinese.

Peter has seen lots of boxes you youngsters wouldn't even accept as calculators. He is proud of having visited the insides of a 16 Bit Machine.

In his spare time he ponders new ways of turning groceries into biohazards, or tries to coax South American officials to add some stamps to his passport.

Beyond these trivialities Peter works for Klippel[^], a small german company that wants to make mankind happier by selling them novel loudspeaker measurement equipment.

Folding at home - Distributed research for a Cure for Cancer.
Team Code Project[^]
Download[^] and install the client. Enter your team number: 11561 in the settings, and let it run. It eats unused CPU time, an internet connection to get new jobs from time to time, and if you let it run unattended your power bill will be a bit higher. Results of research go into public domain. It makes decent screen saver, too.

I don't believe we can make it a better world. Maybe the little extra on the power bill would be more effective donated directly. Maybe all of this effort is in vain for a bug, a lawyer or a more clever approach. I don't get ego fuzzies looking at the screen. "Fold faster than the other guys" is fun, but only for a while. My computer won't beep with a "peterchens completes 'Cure for Cancer'" messagebox - it takes much more than 600 shields. We won't make a drug and distribute it freely among everybody who is struck with the plague of the industrialized world. There's only so much we do, and "folding at home" is not more than reusing your grocery bags because the Amazonian woods are burning down.

Today, a friend of mine goes into hospital. The lump grew a quite bit in the last month, and now presses against her air tube. They say it's no problem, but they said it wouldn't grow half a year before, too. They'll slice her open, cut it out, close her, and life goes on. That's what she says. That's what she thinks. She doesn't take the liberty to think about other possibilities. I cannot do anything. I can't hold her hand. I can't count the instruments they take out, and compare to the number they put in. I can't even visit her while she recovers. I can't talk with her about my fear. I can't do anything.

I fold.

we are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is Vonnegut jr.
