Wow, a special treat tonight. An old friend has agreed to step up to the plate. Jay is a founding member of the Uncle B’s. If you don’t know who that is, well, then you may want to lock up your pets and children first…OK, OK…it’s not that bad! Just cover their eyes and ears!
OK, by now you know the drill:
Hi there. Let me take a minute to introduce myself. I’m Uncle Bob, a Mod here at PC Perspective. We will be running a series of articles within the forum that will be called Mod Interviews. I ask revealing, embarrassing, stupid, probing questions of Mods and hopefully you get to laugh with us at ourselves and in the process get to know some of us better. Beware, not all the Mods are as forthcoming as you may like, I do my best to uncover the truth, but haven’t always hit the mark!
Here ya go, number 17 in the series: Jay See Bee!
1. I realize many of the mods here are in a witness protection program of some sort, but can you give us your real name?
How about my real initials JCB, I bet now you know how I came up with my forum handle
2. Why did you join PCPer/AMDMB?
I was having bootup issues with my ASUS A7V, yes the original one. Still waiting for ASUS to respond to my email about this

6. Do you prefer to be called a “geek” or a “nerd”?
I’d say Geek but some might disagree

I’d like to think I help the member community with tech issues and also keep the peace among all our highly competitive BOINC crunchers, that includes most other mods doing BOINC

13. OK, it’s hardware time! Let’s start with your most, or current favorite piece of hardware. Tell us about it.
No favorites at the moment but hopefully that will soon change in the near future with a new C2D system.

20. Well, we are getting to the end of it, it’ll all be over soon, I promise. What would like to say to our forum members, go ahead anything. Get it off your chest. We have all day hereâ€¦.
To all the wonderful members at PCper it’s time you join any of our highly competitive and addictive BOINC projects, if you’re already part of the PCper BOINC family . Good friendly competition is fun and you’re spare cpu cycles are put to good use, ask any boinc member
