    Well, its been a pretty decent run i'd say but i cant crunch with my machine anymore due to the fact the electric company decided to raise the rates here...

    i wish you all the best of luck and i might be back sometime later down the road to help you guys out again

    Thanks, Arrakis. Everyone has to balance their budgets and has their family to take care of, so we all know where you are coming from.

    Thanks for everything you've done, and maybe we'll see you back in the future. :toast:

    Thanks for crunching for us while you could, as much as I like to provide as much work as I can for WCG, real life is far more important, and if you have to stop for now then it is perfectly understandable. If you ever choose to start again, we will be here waiting

    I might be in the same boat next month. I have to see how my crunching and folding is going to effect my electric bill.

    thats wierd. My bill is only $95 usually, but with folding it went up to $106 (maybe?) not to big of a deal here. either way, I wish you all the best, and hope you can continue sometime in the future.

    Folding in the winter is a great way to stay warm.

    You guys in the hotter climates NEED to look at this. Consider it part of your Folding/WCG solution.:D
