Can you believe that the 4p downloaded an A3 core, and is folding a 6981? tpf of 1 min 13 secs, for 76k ppd... and just like you, it won't connect to upload a 6904 to 130.237.165.141...
I still have 10 hours on my 6904, that gives them some time to get the server fixed tomorrow with just a little bit of waiting.

Just got my power bill. It jumped up from $30 not folding (in the winter) to $104. Yikes. I'm sure they must've made a mistake! (considering I live in an apt and don't pay for heat)

Such a cute little power bill. I just want to squeeze its chubby little cheeks!
AHAHAHAHAHA

My thoughts exactly.
Just do the simple math. Check out your local Hydro / Power companys Kwh rates x how many watts your system runs x how many hours / day x 30 ish days = your cost.

Example: my SR2 running at 450W, in Nova Scotia (16c/Kwh) all the time.... = .450x16x24= $1.73/day (1.728 to be specific) x365 days = $630.72/year (about $52.56/month). Times that by three, and you have a rough idea of my SR2 farm when it was at home (yes, $1892.16/year) That's just for the SR2s. Add in air conditioning, and a full house of crap + 3 other computers and one other server that runs.. yeah. $100. I feel bad for you. :bleh:

In all seriousness, if that's a bill over two months, or a raise of $70/month - that can be expected depending on what you're running and how efficient it is. I spend thousands on computer/server gear in the run of the year, but the electricity cost has to be factored in over long term.

My recommendation is if you're running a GPU client, i'd stop that and just run purely on the CPU.. on the newer sandybridge they are a lot more efficient. Get a kilo-watt meter at Canadian Tire or wherever and track your power usage and determine what's best for you.

It all adds up, I've been working on getting more efficient with all of the hardware that I have. Starting with every new power supply that i need I'm getting Gold rated power supplies. as an example i was using a 80PLUS rated power supply on a system and it was pulling 275W from the wall, Under the same conditions with a gold rated power supply it was pulling 255W. It doesn't sound like a whole lot but when you do the math, local rates are $0.10/KWh so 0.02KWx10x24=$0.05 per day translates to $18.25 per year and if I can take that as an estimate for the improvement it starts to add up over the lifetime of the system(s).

EDIT: I also have not been getting any 690x units. getting regular smp currently working on a 6099 with a tpf of 3:48

I shudder to think what I would be paying for all the older machines that I've got folding if they were at my house. Luckily, with the exception of my computer (from the system specs), all others are housed in my dad's office at his work, so he looks after them and we don't have to pay for the electricity.

Right... I find the 4p coming Home taking a breather, 2 WUs to upload, can't download. Ok, screw that - delete Core, Queue and Work, nothing. Still won't download a Core, nor a WU.
Right... delete / install Fah, tweak config file, damn thing won't download a Core.

Come on Stanford, get your act together. Oh, and it's 130.237.232.237...
