Alrighty, we're halfway through the competition!

How's everyone doing? Unfortunately summer kicked in hard here and I had to pause folding on my computer as I don't have AC. Also due to a water leak in the basement I had to stop my server which was down there. So I'm on a bit of a hiatus but if the temperatures come down then hopefully I can start folding again.

I've had plenty of dramas myself but I think I'm now in the clear :D

I've been folding for the team since the new year of 2014 and I don't plan on stopping any time soon! Though after the competition is done I'll not be running this particular PC 24/7, as; a) I need to think of my electricity bill, and b) It's only a couple of meters away from my head as I sleep!

I'll still bring it out occasionally, for competitions and such!

I'm pretty disappointed with myself this time around - usually I put a fair bit of effort in to the competitions but between work and personal stuff I haven't been able to do anything this time :(

I've had to do some very fine granular control.  This is especially because, for some reason, my client never recognizes when I'm idle.  So I just turn it on when I'm not doing anything intensive.

Thing is, my driver keeps crashing every time I try to do a youtube video.  And my folding is at Medium.

It's kinda annoying.   Flutterrage

This summer has been full of surprises... I had three weeks of downtime due to the fact that I moved three states away... but now that the ambient temperature is pretty low I've been folding nearly 24/7.

Had my fair share of fun with the AMD display driver crashing, and of course BSOD's when I forget to pause folding before starting a game up...

Here's to another month of strong folding though! If I'm lucky I'll keep my Top 10 position. :D

I just got myself a R9 280X! It's currently generating 100000PPD which is double what my 7790 did. Unfortunate I couldn't get earlier.

And I am back in the game!
And still retain 5th position! (barely)
R.I.P. my dear OCZ Vertex 450 SSD, you served me well over the view years.

Not so fun fact: Installing Windows and working on a normal HDD is HARROWINGLY PAINFUL!
Seriously kids, don't go back to spinny disks for your every day needs (Storage capacity excluded).

...and now I have done something truly silly. I have done a clean install, forced upgrade to Windows 10. Let's see what happens! (I'm like...two slots away from the first page... I'd like to get there, at least...)
