I occasionally develop, mainly in languages beginning with P. I’ve played about with all sorts of interesting things; Protein folding on large compute clusters, Flight safety webapps, LoRa enabled flight instruments…
You can occasionally find me floating about underneath clouds usually over England or the Alps…


Hello Pete :wave:

Protein folding on clusters reminds me of the beginnings of Covid…
I have only briefly tried LoRa, but loved it.
Nice that you started with Acorn Electron, you were gifted at that time in UK. :wink:

It was the beginnings of COVID. I restarted the F@H - Intel partnership which had been dormant, then scraped together several of the big clusters at Intel and got them running mainly GROMACS workloads.

Sinclair ZX80 & 81 too. Amazing at the time that the Electron could run Elite.
