In the winter, it comes out even for me. I've got an all electric house. Thankfully my wife hasn't really put 2 and 2 together about the electric bill and my pc running 24/7.

Yeah, we've got a gas boiler at my house for our baseboard heat. Our back room gets quite toasty between that, the water heater, the gas clothes dryer, and two computers. Also, our house has great southern exposure and huge windows, so we get tremendous solar gain during the day. We leave the heat set to 68 in most of the house, but down on my end it's set to 65 or 63 because the thermostat is in my sister's room (north side) and my southern bedroom can reach almost 80 on a sunny day.

Hi LBN,

It's not the heating bill that concerned me earlier this year, it was the cooling bill! I just put the tarp over the A/C for winter... I hope it gets cold!!!

At the moment it costs about $20.00 per rig per month with Consumers Power. So my electricity bill is inflated by about $180.00 per month.... At some point I might have to shut down a few rigs and save some monies...

Also Team_Folders_Inc is losing ground quickly. And Team Replacements is catching up quick. I might have to swing a couple of rigs that way for a while.... I have an 18th rig I'm putting together, and upgrading my daughter's older P4.... Maybe those would help??

It's hard to believe that Team Folders_Inc was once in the top 30. Now it's at 78th...

Oh well... Take care ol' friend :-)

Ugh... I am annoyed right now. I've got an account on half.com so I can sell used books and the like. I've had probably around 10 sales or so, and all have gone smoothly until my most recent one. I sold this guy a book, and I sent it to him within a day of the purchase. The guy emails me, and he claims I sent the wrong book. He says I sent him a different one in the series, but I know this is not correct. I list by ISBN number, and the ISBN of the book he purchased from me and the book he claims I sent him are totally different. I've never even seen the other book! And it looks totally different. So, I said he could return the book to me and when I received it I would refund the money. I gave him my address to send back to, but I never heard back from him. Nothing about being sent or what carrier or that he had changed his mind. Nothing. Well yesterday I get an email from the guy asking where the hell his refund was, and I emailed back saying that I'd never received the returned book, and so as such I wouldn't refund it (I'm not gonna fall for that scam). He sends a furious reply, calling me an *******, and then leaves feedback calling me a scam artist. Meanwhile, I've already left him feedback (luckily he didn't leave it as negative, it was still positive) several weeks ago when I first sent it out. I said the usual thanks for buying and that he was fast at replying to emails (this was before the wrong book claims). The transaction will be a month old tomorrow. I just really hate people like that. The guy is a corporate buyer for Toshiba North America, and has racked up tons of feedback. Of course, he never sells anything, so you can't leave negative feedback on the guy (big mistake).

Hi LBN,

I feel your pain! I recently had the same experience with a person here at OCN.... We are still trying to get resolution. Like yours, it's a he said, she said thing. Right now I'm out $90.00, with no product. I've had one or two of these bad transactions over the years at eBay as well.. No matter where you go, you'll run into these type people.

My thought - he ordered the wrong book (from you), and now says you shipped the wrong book. Taking no blame for his stupidity... It's where our society has gone these days. I take no responsibility for my actions, whether right or wrong!

Suggestion - Once you get some finality to the issue, I'd block his E-mails with a spammer type program. Every E-mail program has those type filters. As for the feedback. Hopefully, you can state the same thing as a reply, as you stated here. That way other folks can read what went on, and make their own decisions whether to buy from you...

In the meantime, hang in there! :-)

Yeah, I've now contacted Half about all this to see what they say, and the guy is on my blocked buyers list on Half. I'll leave the emails open until I get resolution, but after that he is getting blocked there, too.

I just installed the SMP client on my main computer to add points to Team_Folders_Inc. E8600 @ 4.3Ghz so it should help
