it sounds like a good idea...ever since i started folding i cant get enough pcs..it just sucks that the people with all this money and have huge farms just continue to get money. there needs to be more for the rest of us so that we have the opertunity to purchase or upgrade folding rigs. i currently have 5 rigs but 2 are so slow that its just a little boost..if you can build a new folding rig for around 300 go for it....1 question though...who do you fold for. i dont care that its not for OC.net...just wondering.

And if someone could show me a medical journal report that links our protein folding directly to something that HAS been accomplished, i will start one of my rigs folding...i pledge that wholeheartedly....maybe i will put my laptop on folding duty too...
HOW in gods name does it cost you 170$ per month????

I have 7pcs at my house now 5 of them are on 24/7 and have been for over 2 years and I have never spent anything close to that. My figures for a test of running them was only about 48$ for all 5.

I have 2 kids and a wife and we do about 15 loads of laundry with an electric dryer, I have a gas stove and oven and we constantly have the TV going among 5 lights in the house as well.

I am not knocking you, I would just like to know what your avg electric bill is if five computers cost you almost 200$ per month.

How do you think they find the answer they found a way to solve the problems quicker and cheaper.
Go to Stanfords site, they have the info on what they have done so far.

Also I pay about 125.00 per month for 33 rigs running 24/7.

Some of the electricity costs seem on the surface to be sky high, but some electric companies charge scaled rates. Up to a certain usage level, the cost is low. Add on a little more, and the cost jumps a lot. Add even more on to that, and the rates are ridiculous. I member had to give up folding after his electric bill tripled. He didn't use all that much electricity (about 20-30% more than usual), but it knocked him into the insane rate category. I'm a strong advocate for folding, but when that much money is needed to run a relatively small folding farm, the money is probably better spent donating directly to a charity (he only had 2 or 3 computers going). Having a small army of computers in a reasonable rate area is costly enough (see jrabb ), but would just not be viable with some electric companies.

Nope, the code will only allow new thread in For Sale / Wanted / Appraisals by members with 75+ reps, though anyone can express interest in items that are for sale.

Hi hardwater,

Here's a link to some recently posted results on the p53:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...f647bf9c9b61b5

If that link does not work try this one:
http://folding.stanford.edu/results.html

Now to your statement: <"And if someone could show me a medical journal report that links our protein folding directly to something that HAS been accomplished, i will start one of my rigs folding...i pledge that wholeheartedly..">

The medical work being completed does take time, but results will be forthcoming, I believe...

I hope this helped, :-)

Well..here in LA, @ least in my area, it is a power company monopoly, and the politics are crooked. There are sooo many Entergy lobbyists at the capitol during session, it's sometimes hard to get a seat.

Our prices skyrocket without warning, and taeric is right, scaled rates are a biatch. For example, in November, it waswarmer than it was is January. I never run the heat in the winter because i have a fireplace, and it keeps the whole house plenty warm. My electric bill was 40% higher in January than it was in November, and i didn;t run the air condidtioner once, and all the evacuees that were draining my energy in November had gone home, so there were even less eople to leave lights on/watch TV/etc.

Power prices suck down here. I know up in mid-michigan they aren;t too bad....my dad has worked for consumers energy for 20 years, so i know a bit about the power companies.

It's too bad you don't fold, you should, it all goes to a worthy cause at little to no cost for you. Heck if you don't have anything good to say, stop discouraging the other people that actually are semi-nice.
