Problem I see on my side is that I have two Server 2012 R2 machines with dual E5-2670's that their folding client is always idle. They rarely get a workunit.

Primarily electricity costs for us. Wifey quit her job (cut her income in half), just after we moved into a house where we paid electricity bill (and right after we bought two new cars, right after we took a $10,000 trip, right after I started a masters degree, right after we got a dog, etc etc etc...)

I have not upgraded any of my rigs in over 2 years. Have been lucky on the mobile front (both my wife and I were on govt plans that gave us a 12 month upgrade at the 3 year price), but that too has ended. Going to be tough being a gadget addict when cash flow is a big issue.

I just looked my old folding name up, haven't submitted a workunit since 2013!
Gone are the days of my dual SR2's heating my garage in the winter. Cheap electricity isn't available anymore. I used to house the SR2's where I used to work in their server room.. they barely even made a mark on the electricity bill.
I can't setup anything where I work now, and it looks like it's all GPU based folding now anyways.

Still in 7th place! :)

I still have one of your SR-2s Rison! Alas, it remains off at this time. I used cryptocurrencies to offset electricity costs for a while, but that's not as effective any more. Now, unless I can justify the electricity costs for heating purposes in the winter, only my daily driver is folding since I leave it on all the time anyway. Escalating electricity costs here in Ontario have made folding untenable financially. Anyone want a 4P G34 server?
