    50mbps is ~ ten bux. 100mbps is ~ fifteen bux. 300mbps is ~ twenty-seven bux. Why?

    Oh, nothing. Just selling everything I own to go live where you live.

    By the way, just going off TDP of the processors alone, I estimate you're using ~3.2 kilowats.

    In that case, I'll take all the other stuff + loss at the PSU into account and ganna call for ~4 kW. Which means, for the university, this crunching thing costs a bit under a buck an hour, or about nineteen-bux-fifty a day, or about one-hundred-and-thirty-five bux a week, or about five-hundred-and-eighty-five bux if it would crunch for a month. Dyaaaaaaam! That's more than twice my income! :eek:

    (all costs & my income converted to US dollars by using the current exchange rate provided by the national bank; power / electricity price taken is the nation-wide price for domestic and all other usage when not under a special contract)

    Tack on another, what? 100 watts per system for mobo, memory, gpu, HDD, fans? Times 37 computers is another 3.7 kilowatts for a total of 6.9 kilowats? :eek:

    (Would be $14.85432 a day here in Washington. Looks like we have the cheapest electricity in the US. I should start renting out crunchers. :p)

    okay, gonna recalculate, then:
    $1.35 and hour;
    $32.40 a day;
    $227 a week;
    $972 a 30-day month;
    Dyam! that is 3.5 times my income! :eek:
    I hope I don't find a bill for that in my mailbox or anything. Would be catastrophic.

    EDIT: OH WAIT You also took those three computers I run at home into account. So what university would have to pay should be slightly less.

    Why didn't I think of that before? That's a splendid idea!
    *turns 空色デイズ instrumental version for this occasion* (空色デイズ is the TTGL opening theme song)
    I should create a TTGL-themed batch of those tomorrow! (FYI, my avatar is one of a series of four avatars; all are 1024x1024 at what I consider "full" size (or more, if needed - as all done with vector graphics).)
    Hell yeah! :rockout:

    Go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb!
    Whether it's impossible or laughable, this is the path that all great men walk!
    If there is a wall in our way we'll break it down!
    If there is no path we'll make one with these hands!
    WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE!

    Our power bill at work (new facility) was a whopping $507 this past month. I don't know how much my computers were responsible for that, but I think much of that is the 5 ton air conditioner running nearly constantly. I had set it to do 74 during the day and 82 at night but my dad decided to be foolish and mess with it, so it's probably a big chunk of the bill. Unfortunately we also have roughly 16 128w fluorescent troffers going most of the day in the office, 600w of high pressure sodium fixtures outside at night, 6 150w 8' bay fluorescent light fixtures, a couple freezers and of course the crematory equipment, so yeah. I might move some stuff home to balance things out a bit but hopefully I don't need to shut some stuff down considering I brought some old equipment back online this week.

    Well, I'm down a system now; I sold one if the i3-2100s to a friend today. This was expected (and why I picked up the last i7-920 anyways) but that's about 1.8k PPD gone :ohwell:

    I have some listed a 3 hours and some at 6. Depending on how strong your rig is, you may see some fluctuations in the times.
