I need to get back into the fold... I think I need to change electricity supplier - my current one has just increased rates by 20%.

Holy crap, 20%! That's quite a jump. What's their rationale for increasing rates so much?

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!
This post man... love it.

Something to do with the end user in the UK picking up the tab for the energy suppliers installing smart meters, which the government wanted in every house by 2020. They thought it would help reduce usage by the consumer so they could reach some target or other. They have now realised that smart meters don't reduce usage, so they are now saying that they will "offer" every household a smart meter by 2020. The consumer is left picking up the tab as usual...

Hi

I need to get a better case. My twin GTX1070 setup just heats up way to fast in the H440 even with the 2x360 radiators. Case is just too restrictive. Also it heats up my room fast and its above 85 Fahrenheit most days in Southern California where I live

I'll be shutting down at some point in the next 24-36 hours to prepare for Irma. If it hits Miami, no telling how long I'll be without power but I will get back up when I can

I will be honest I haven't done it in a while, mainly because I have had to move my setup out of the attic and into the living room as the conditions are not ideal up there.

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 agree, I think mining has a lot to do with taking focus away from other projects. I live in the UK and I personally dont see the beneft, especially with our energy prices the way that they are.

Same here, my energy bills are ridiculous.

Stay safe and batten down those hatches we're all praying for you overseas.
