Anyone still here and want to fold with me?

LOL, I'm still folding off and on, but for my own team. I came back here on a whim just out of nostalgia. This place was hopping back in the day of the nForce 2 boards.

I'd love to get back into it at some point, but it's the middle of a crazy heatwave at the moment and it's not an option for me at home.

It's a shame that a lot of DC projects have been wiped of donors due to mining though, I think of the potential charitable scientific benefit we've lost due to many folks just wanting to make a quick buck.

I lost a sister to leukemia in 2004, and a 32 year old nephew to pancreatic cancer a few years ago, so it's a cause I try to keep up with. Every little bit helps.

The cost of electricity is what's holding me back right now, but I'm seriously considering going solar.

So we'll see.....

Unfortunately I haven't been able to keep the other guys on the team Folding, but hopefully in a couple months when the seasons change I can get a couple back in. With a modern GPU, even just folding on weekends can contribute a couple million points a month.

Now that it is starting to cool off here in Ohio, I am going to stick a dedicated rig in my bedroom. My wife hates being cold, and our bedroom is the coldest room in the house since it has 3 exterior facing walls. Having a system in there folding 24/7 raises the temp a couple degrees for her. LOL. It's a perfect use for the residual heat. Now I just need to decide what rig and gpu I want to use.

Last time I just had multiple low-speed fans. A soft buzz isn't bothersome at all really. Our bedroom is big enough that I can put it on the other side of the room and it's pretty much inaudible. I just try to keep the exhaust fan(s) pointed toward the center of the room

Well, it's been about exactly a year since my last post in here. Ironically, I just noticed that my team is about to overtake the nForcersHQ folding team.

Verdeva is still folding under the nForcers banner though. I just thought it was interesting. Nice to see some people are sticking with it after all this time.
