    Hard "no" from me then. California government is awful. A bureaucratic nightmare. We have existing state agencies to handle law enforcement. We don't need another.

    SansVarnic reacted to Pezui in A short folding story   
    Hello, I started back when Covid first really got bad in the United States. I was watching an LTT video and I saw the call out for folding and I remembered years ago being involved with the initial effort in late 2000 early 2001. So I thought to myself sure I can donate some spare computer cycles. But much had changed in my life during the 20 years of the folding project existing, now I was a senior staff engineer for my company making good money and swimming in spare hardware. So I tried to toss an entire C7000 HPE Cluster at it with 14 BL460c blades and 28 Intel Xeon E5-2690v4 CPU's (784 threads @2.6GHZ). About the time I got the whole thing setup I realized getting a workload for a CPU was... just not going to happen. CPU workloads were all gobbled up, the hypervisor was having a bad day trying to pipe all of the queues at once which were all just waiting around, the power was expensive at 15,900 watts peak, and in the first month I think I had like 11 work units. So I abandoned that project and went about just using a tiny desktop I had that was a little power house I used in a side gig since it had a video card in it and those could at least get a work unit assigned.
     
    Fast forward 7ish months and I finally have surpassed 500M points and earned my platinum badge, which is mostly why I am making this post, its a badge lets see if it looks good right? Anyways it is now time to upgrade my little toy machine and I have a kind of crazy new machine here but not assembled yet (Below). Though I am sure many of you have something better or would recommend different hardware etc. With all of this, I wanted to say thank you for encouraging me to do something with the race car I built to help others. Being inspired enough to take an action is kind of rare these days. While I don't catch many of the video's LTT does, and I might not own the merchandise, at least I can stand back and be part of something that is trying to do good for others. I hope good deeds continue to be what the channel and brand are known for, more than just PCMR fan boy flexing. 
     
    The machine in my picture is the current box that did most of the folding for the past 7 months, it got so warm the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M front panel warps out until it doesn't have a folding job for more than half an hour then it loudly pops back in to place. I guess the 10900x at 5.2 and the 2080 at 1940... well it has been stable but real warm. Also everyone asks, yes the tubes are straight but the lighting and parallax oddity makes funky camera shots look warped. I posted the machine to PCMR, I think I got 2 likes, posted it to Corsair and it won a build of the month prize. Strange how the audience will shift that much.
     
    The machine parts list below once assembled will probably fold 85% of its life away, but it might as well look good doing it so we have all of the lights. The last 15% of the time I use it for a very specific side job.
    Phanteks Enthoo Elite
    Intel 10900x
    Intel 10900KF
    Asus Prime X299 - Deluxe II
    Asus ROG Strix z490-I
    160GB of Corsair 3400 in white with Blinky lights
    3 Samsung 970 EVO Plus drives
    2 MSI Ventus 2080's
    1 unknown video card for the ROG board... could some one sell me a damn founders edition 3080?
    Corsair AX1200i
    Corsair RM850
    6 HP Envy 27" 4k Monitors
    1 Asus DRW-24b3ST... yes a DVD drive is part of my work, don't be envious.

    I believe this thread has run it's course. @Mark MacDiarmid has gotten considerable advice on how to build an epic gaming setup for their kids. Due to things brought up by both commenters and the Author alike, allowing further discussion on this matter will only cause warnings to be handed out and we'd rather avoid that if possible.

    LMG totally could pay people something - they are a profitable medium sized company at this point. However, if this were a paid role, LMG would have to do the maths to decide whether it makes financial sense to keep the forum running at all - the forum certainly brings them value beyond straight cash, so it does make sense to continue running it when it's not directly profitable, but there is a limit to that. If this were a paid role, there would be labour laws and such that come along with it, and suddenly the cost of running the forum goes way up.
     
    I call this an unpaid role, but that is not strictly true. I have been paid for a handful of things that I have done in the (now relatively distant) past for the forum, and it is possible (but please only read possible) that there will be paid tasks available to those who get this role - I have not discussed that with LMG. However, the vast majority of my time is unpaid, and I want to set that expectation for people applying too - I do not want the tone to shift from "this is an opportunity to learn and give back to the community" to "this is an opportunity to make some money", because the latter will almost certainly result in disappointment and is not the type of team that I'm trying to build here.
     
    I totally understand people not being interested in doing unpaid work on the forum, and that's absolutely fine. But I do this because I enjoy it, and because I want to help out the community, and my hope is that through this process I can find some like-minded people; based on the form responses that I've seen so far, it seems that I am not alone. I hope that people applying are not offering to do this for nothing, but instead that they are offering to do it for something other than money.
