I got to confess something guys...
... I'm addicted to folding
It happens to all of at some point
Addicted to folding is a good thing.
Keep up the addiction
I woke up to find a rig with my 470 and 465 gone cuckoo. I had to reboot to get it running.
All I've been getting is 611 WUs so I've been throwing the per verbal rocks at Buck for being so damn lucky. I added the above flags and both cards picked up 925 WUs.
I shutdown all my other clients running 611 WUs and added the flags. They restarted the 611 WUs and now two have finished picking up a 912 and 925 WU. Look at that PPD go up!
Yes he could have spilt the beans earliere
Cool, time to try that
Nice work CP, but don't expect an intervention from any of us!
A perfectly legal form of addiction if you asked me
Oh I will. . It's gonna get worse really soon!
Not looking for one
We think alike.
Gonna get worse? Please explain
More cards on the way?
Soon I hope.
CP, glad to see your admission. Good thing this addiction only harms your wallet.
Let me outline my own 12 step program.
Step1. Start folding
Step2. Start tweaking
Step3. Buy more/better equipment.
Steps 4-12. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as often as you're able.
Isn't first step to admit your addiction? And then fold for the hell of it from there on. The way my puny 450 folds now on a 925 pointer I wish that I had some good slots to put more in. My wifes PC houses a 250 and it keeps re-starting (ok, once or twice per day) and I bought her a nice Enermax since the old PSU was running at 11,6 V. Didn't help, so no free slots there. My daily rig has a tiny Corsair 650W and I use all the 12 V plus a bit (and slots). My -bigadv rigs will never see a GPU3 card as long as they are folding -bigadvs ($0.35/kWh makes it a unwise decision). That leaves me with no choice other then to enter a new rig. Where do I put it so my wife wouldn’t see it? Garden sheed, she never goes there? Got power and some bikes that gets cold during winter. Hmm....
Very SOON I bet.
Details to come l8tr
that's expensive power! We pay $.08 per KWH
That is why I try to optimize my folding. I'm currently using $20/day and the four boxes acount for 60%. When I crunch (waiting for the right server to be up) I run a 260 and a 9800 GXT+ otherwise they "rest".
Edit: Wrong kWh consumption number.
That makes sense
I would think that any sort of DC would be prohibitively expensive with electricity prices like those :shadedshu
Love your program! I'm in!
Because of this, my 5870 is folding! WU's are back up so why not?
Well it's another ~150w
But I am just arguing, I'd do it if I were you
I'm just trying to take a little bit of care of my PSU, I can't RMA it anymore if it goes bad
Because of our recent outburst of points, we don't have any threats listed on eoc stats. Great team effort.
Woohoo!! That's how you do it!
I am still looking to get a 3rd card.....someday.

This was another 25 hour day for Free-DC.

Again El_Fiendo came in with 90K+ followed by Oily, Fits and 111frodon with 70K+.
Hertz almost had 60K again but tonight sneekypeet took that last slice of pie with 40K+.
Congratulations to all pie club members.
Again tonight after the 3rd Free-DC update our team was over a million.
