    Sorry to hear that,
    Hardware, software, power bills, time or just lost interest ?
    If you don't want to say, that's Ok too,
    But as a Folding Mod I'm concerned with anyone who stops Folding, for whatever reason.
    Thanks for all your Wu's for the cause,
    And drop by for a friendly now and then.
    Fold with what you have,
    Every Work Unit can make a difference.

    It happens, take a rest visit and hang when you can, I will be downsizing one rig myself, bills, power and all that - I'll continue to do what I can.

    I'll be in Denmark and Norway during the year, but won't make Sweden this year.

    I've been down to one folder (my 6300) for a while now, but not for energy reasons. My laptops just can't keep up anymore with any project expirations.

    Re: What the Hey ... turn em back on ..

    I haven't changed a thing. Everything is running fine.

    I haven't had a chance to look at look at what's being assigned to each and what the frame times are but they are all running and completing wu's but my ppd is down from 12K + per day to somewhere around 9k per day.

    Which Piano should I buy if I want to play like Mozart?

    Sorry guys, decided to turn off the rigs. I was starting to lose interest and I needed to sell the quads to pay for a few house expenses. 12k PPD gone

    Understood, I started this thread knowing that I was going to have to downsize myself. It happens, I'm sure I can say on behalf of us all -drop in and have a beer or whatever as often as you wish.

    I'm dropping one box http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=450423 perhaps shutting down 1 more while travelling, but will remain Folding for the Team in case the subject came up.

    Re: What the Hey ... turn em back on ..

    I don't mind my power usage going up a bit, but only if the folding clients are stable and WUs don't keep hanging...that may end my folding in the near future, not overall cost.

    If I'm not turning out production due to bad WUs, then I will not conrinue.

    Honestly, bad Wu's and hangs have been minor for me .. maybe its system reliability ..?

    Re: What the Hey ... turn em back on ..

    Nope, nothing wrong anywhere with the system(s), everything else runs without issue.

    All stock speeds, no overclocking or over/under volting on anything.

    I'm beginning to lose a little interest myself. Work has completely taken over what is left of my life. Still folding for the time being though.
