    Like the title say's, I'm shutting the farm down Wednesday afternoon. I will be Mountain biking in North Georgia until Sunday PM, when the farm will come back online with a vengeance. I expect HWC to overtake us during that period until we claw our way back on top. Let them enjoy a few days in the limelight again. Keep up the great folding guys!

    If I could stand the green camp I would have four GPU's crunching in my rig.


    Have a good time and take pics.

    Buck, I'll get my 3 gtx260's running while you're gone. That should help some.

    Hmm... I try my best to get my rigs set back up tomorrow morning to help stem the PPD loss. Hopefully I'll be able to get going as soon as the Comcast Tech gets me hooked up again.

    Aw crap. And I was just thinking about turning down the overclocks to save a few bucks on electricity. (Got a $100 electricity bill, up from $35).

    Also, I'm hoping against hope the ATI folding will get better. The new 5770 mid-range cards out perform my 4870 at half the watts! I know they are working on new stuff that works with Open CL. This should bring back ATI. Meanwhile I can only hope.

    I posted this @ HWC. I am coming back a day early due to cold rainy weather here in North GA that is no fun for a Florida boy to ride in:ohwell:. Should have the farm online by 9pm EST tonite. Looks like cool weather rolling in, so windows will be opening up to spare me some of the $600.00 elec bill I got last week.

    Sorry 'bout cutting your vacation short. I ride too, and while most rides are better than no ride, I've done the cold, wet, muddy thing. Not fun.

    Still and all, great to have you back!

    Yes, the rigs power draw coupled with the A/C trying to eliminate the tremendous amount of heat is the reason for this high electric usage. I noticed the A/C (central a/c) would not shut off for hours at a time. I am now exhausting to the outside air and have to figure a way to keep this elec bill in check.

    Ah, fall and winter. Isn't it wonderful? :)
    I have a trio of 120mm computer fans that I run in my window to pull in 50 degree air to keep my room cool. Otherwise the quad heats it up quite a lot.

    I have seen a buried ground water loop for cooling here before, and thought about running a few loops through a car radiator. Others have used heater cores for radiators.
