That's why I fold at work (mostly). Electricity is free (sort of), just have to bug your co-workers to fold for you, and explain that fah is a not some sort of spyware. Better than facing the wife with insane electricity bills! I already have to justify why I have and NEED so many computers at home, lol :)
