FAH installer

Postby skier » Fri Sep 28, 2012 8:45 pm

Hi all!

Just chiming in here, I am installing the new client (first time in a while folding as you could tell) and noticed it is WAY different that it always used to be, it's actually functional! :shock:

the only reason i'm really even folding is because my heat doesn't get turned on until Oct 15 (dumbest law ever), and it's getting very cold already- so computer heater it is!

i still remember 38296 by heart!

from no desktop turned on for more than an hour a day to my Desktop F@H on the c2q and 460, and a secondary Celeron D system I was setting up as a server at the time on for ~3hrs a day.

I'm sure there were other factors too, but that bill was definitely a shocker (granted it was less than $100 still, but we don't even have tv right now so that much of a hike can't just go on :( )

yeah, shocked it jumped up that much from a couple PCs a few hours a day...

The average for electric is 14 cents per kw hour.

A 400 Watt PC would need to run 715 hours to reach 286 kw hours or $40.04 in cost.

That is 30 days exactly, so if you ran a PC at 400 Watts of load for 30 days straight then that makes perfect sense.

That's why I hardly fold at home anymore. It's nice to donate but the price is getting a little high for me. I can turn off my PC for most of the day and just use my I-Pad instead.

Well it's also changing times... Most people can get away with just a tablet these days.
