Unless you have 20 or 30 computers going, you should not notice a whole lot on your electric bill. I have 5 here in the house, none less than an amd 2400+ and no less than 400w P/S, and I have not noticed a lot at all.

Maybe check if something else in the house is draining electric while it should not be :shock:

I'll look into that. . I'm doing what I can around the house to keep her happy. I love to fold, though so I don't plan on keeping them offline for long.

To pick the winner i am making a list of all the members and asigning a number, 1-8, then using http://www.random.org to generate a random number between 1 and 8.

Not to beat a dead horse or anything, but didn't you say that 5 WUs in a month would qualify? (read page 1) No big deal...



Congrats KnightRid! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
