I heard that LTT was folding from the last weekly show and decided I should join in! I had already brought out the room heater for the winter and thought, "I do have another heater that can fight disease and heats the room, better choose the one that might save a life."

Just wanted to check, the OP states that a form will be posted a week before the end of the month for the guys wanting to enter for the 1070. I know it's a day early but presume this hasn't been posted yet, had a quick look and couldn't see anything but wanted to make sure

no one in the LTT group has that range of Points/WU. I'm not sure they read the rules.

 

edit: that may be their total score but not contribution to team. unfortunately I'm not sure how to delete posts.

Boom, on it and done. Then realised the pic I uploaded really shows the LEDs highlighting the dust on the tempered glass, too late now but have cleaned it so at least I can now see it looking nicer 😂

@jakkuh_t can you mark this as best answer so it gets pinned to the top? More people will be able to see it if it's pinned :)

PS. You don't realise how obnoxious your motherboards debug LEDs are until you're trying to take glamour shots of your PC. I get it. The computer is working. You don't need to blind me with "AO" on the debug code.

Spoiler

I just used my build log for Project ITNOS which I'm assuming will suffice even though it only accounts for about 30% of my PPD since I also fold on my main system (though not at 24/7)

I haven't exactly folded much even though I did plan to. Unfortunately after my second folding day I realised that it's costing me a lot in electricity. In my current situation, I can't afford to really do it any more than I already have. I will start it back up again in January once I start my new job.

 

Well done everyone, keep up the good work

Thats why I only do it during the cold months. At least the electricity can be used to heat my room. During the summer, it just means the A/C has to run even more, using even more electricity.

Being able to eat and/or keep the lights on is definitely a higher priority man! Hope things smooth out soon. :)

Hey, the MSI gaming laptop my wife bought 2 years ago to do MS Office and Google Docs is finally getting a work out. I also pulled my kids ancient laptops out of storage and along with my wife's old laptop, my laptop and old AMD X6 1065T Desktop (w/ GTX 1060) to do a little folding. Prob wont leave them all going long term but will definitely leave a few of them going on low from here on out. Planning on building a gaming rig (Ryzen 3 w/ RTX 2080 maybe) next year and if it happens will let it in on the action too. 🤪
