Yes, electricity and internet is abundant, but in my already heavily air-conditioned house, my room never gets below 85, and is often around 93, like it is now. I've learned to adapt to that type of environment, but I don't want to promise anything until I know more about my accommodations. I have yet to meet my roommate, and have yet to see whether or not the dorm will be air conditioned, have good ventilation, etc. and would rather not unexpectedly abandon the team if things aren't A-OK for folding. I will make every effort to continue my folding career, but felt responsible to warn my comrades of impending doom.
Now, regarding my rig: an SMP unit dropped perfectly fine, so I think I may have fixed the problem. I'm running a 6901 now that should drop Tuesday morning some time, and we'll see how that goes. However, I'm leaving for vacation this Friday, so my rig will be left somewhat unattended and folding away for like 10 days. I'll still have SSH capability hopefully, but won't have much time to think about it while I'm busy.
Wonder, regarding the i7-2 slot, I don't think I'm fully ready or prepared to make that decision yet, but I'll definitely want to keep my spot if I can. I'll let you know as the date gets closer
