I actually stopped folding for a few days. As many of you know, I can't afford to have the AC fight my PC 24/7. It was 85 degrees here on Sunday, and upper 70s for a day before and after so I had to cut it, figuring I will try and get a WU in here and there on cooler days.

It actually has dropped back to 40s here, and the high for the next 10 days is only 70, so maybe I'll be able to get to top 250 before I have to slow down. I just hit 3 mil :D

Tape some duct work to that thing and vent it outside.

Box up the pc's that you're going to turn off and ship them to me. I'll keep them folding (under my name of course) :mrgreen:

Sounds fair. Team gets the points and Stanford gets the science. Win-win. I'll come pick it up, how's that?

I have a GTX470 that I would give to anyone that would fold with it under team 11108. :D

I could probably talk to you about this. My current GPU isn't good for folding anyways.

One GTX470 is spoken for already but I have another if you will use it?


Arcades the good days, hard to find a good arcade game anymore. I have a coin-op game in my house, Robotron, stargate, defender, joust, and a couple others. All in the same cabinet. Its great.

I built a small cabinet for an arcade controller back in like 2004. Used arcade machine replacement parts to make it authentic and a Microsoft Sidewinder controller to wire it all together. The problem is, it uses the old midi port from sound cards to interface with the pc... they don't make those anymore it seems.

I have an old soundcard with a midi port, but PCs don't even have standard PCI anymore... I either need to rebuild it with a newer controller board, or scrounge up some old P4 era equipment and make a dedicated MAME cabinet for it. I like the idea of the 2nd way, but money and space are concerns. Mainly space since I probably have all the parts somewhere.
