    I caught my Core i7 computer guilty of not getting any work done again. :(

    It has about 10 completed units to report and two that were stuck at 0%. I had to click Update Project to get it to send those completed units and Reset Project to make it start processing again.

    I'm tempted to put the version running on my server on the Core i7 computer. It has been working flawlessly for at least a month now.

    Okay - after a month of crunching, I saw a 60% increase in my electric bill. This is not too bad as I was only paying $50.00 per month. So I will keep crunching and look to add another system as soon as I can save some money :toast:

    Thank god I live in a state where the weather is cool during the summer :rockout:

    Wow, running it 24/7 has raised your bill 60%? Have you ran it on a killawatt to see what it is pulling at 100%?

    Double PCB. I bought it when the GTX 295 first came out (replaced two 4870's under H2O).
    I am looking to sell my ASUS GTX 295 right now....
