Ok, I'm not really adding anything worthwhile here, but that was hilarious.

Haha, never thought about that for folding, but now that you bring it up, i have tripped breakers with PCs before, set up a bunch for a LAN and as they started booting up, *click* no power. Had to run cords from other rooms to get on multiple breakers, but im sure with that many PCs folding, tou have a few on each breaker in the place!

Location: back on the right side of the middle of the left side YES i'm folding
when my son and I were running about 14 machines, and all separate circuits were filled in all the rooms I had to tap into the 220v electric stove circuit and split it for more 110v.

Oh, NO! The secret's out! I should be hearing from Gary480Six about 5 minutes after he reads that.

Gary could tell y'all lots of popped breaker stories. After Folding, I think load-balancing is his second hobby.


And G. M. - your age is showing - 220v and 110v! I thought I was the only one left on earth who still calls 240v and 120v that. :P :wink:
(I also still prefer to use an analog volt/ohm meter.)

I just did a google image search for GPU server. It looked cool. I have no idea of what it is. I'd love to run something like that, but I've calculated that my single costs around $30-40 a month to run 24/7, so I'm not getting more any time soon though I may go for more efficient when newer cards come out with insane folding stats for the PPD/Watt. My whole rig pretty much consumes a constant 420 watts. I have anOC'd Radeon 7970 and an OC'd i7 930.
