Fortunately we are on a public utility electricity district so power is much much cheaper than many parts of USA and probably anywhere in Eurpoe.

So let's fold on!!!!
So what you're saying is we can send you our folding rigs and you'll run them for us, in our names?

That'd be more like a PC daycare instead of a farm....but it could work.

Sad to see the numbers dwindling. I do think mining has taken a lot of the focus away from projects like [email protected] and Seti. It's pretty damn tempting to let your GPU crunch away plus get paid for it, if you catch it at the right time. I don't know how much it's affected our team, but I'd love to see some people come back.

We always see numbers go down in summertime. Maybe they will pick up again when things cool off?

I haven't folded for a year I think. Mainly due to heat in my very well insulated and efficient apartment. I need a Blahsement* (check out Hmmblah's basement thread) and summer lasts for ever here in oz.

I'd say a lot of it is more to do with either mining or living arrangements. I have a new house to move into this Christmas so I'll have an under house storage area that would be perfect for a 24/7 folder.

It's interesting though when you talk of mining lots of things come up like concerns over GPU longevity but not when it comes to folding. Is that down to the fact that miners cram as many GPU's in as possible?

lol

I think mining is more short term so the miners don't necessarily care about longevity. It's about mining as fast as possible while the cash is good. With folding there really isn't that concern. It's more about trucking along while being stable as can be.

Plus, mining is much more difficult than folding so it's only a matter of time before people switch. Mining can be pretty back breaking work and has all sorts of negative health effects like respiratory issues. Folding can be done indoors while seated and is much easier on the body. I'll continue to fold in the comfort of my own home rather than try mining and get injured or worse. Not to mention, mining is extremely dirty work and would ruin all my clothes!

hahaha, I see what you did there. Yes, folding is much better for your health!
