We're being taken over!

Jerry (Barnacules Nerdgasm) formed a folding group 2 1/2 months ago. They're going to overtake us by the end of the month! Holy cow! We need to learn his recruiting techniques!

I'd help, but I still can't afford electricity costs.

Find ways to hide GPUs around your place of work, it's air conditioned and they can run 24/7, that's what I do Derpytongue2

I don't think Microcenter would take kindly to that :P

I just started my rig back up yesterday. Switching my electricity bill from A/C cost to heating cost (folding... literally the only source of heat I need for winter here in South Dakota)

Microcenter? Right on! Siphon all their electricity! They'll never see the tiny increase in power usage.

But your situation is so perfect though! You have a shop floor full of computers that run 24/7. Don't get yourself fired but maybe ask your manager instead?

We're being single-hoofedly taken over by a guy named KevlarCondom.  I guess I should start building a new computer Twilightsmile

I'm still putting all my effort into BOINC at the moment, but I'll be switching back to a mix of BOINC & FAH (and hopefully adding a new GPU!) soonish.
It's very quiet around here at the moment :(

Very soon I will be selling off the GPUs from my 24/7 rig and replacing them with a single, larger one. This should near double my normal output but it's a drop in the ocean compared to the miracle we need right now  Raritydespair

Being shafted by a Kevlar Condom feels about as painful as it sounds right now  Raritycry

All 65 of our active users would have to be on rigs that can pump out 1.25 million ppd for us to stay afloat.

Looking at our overtake sheet on EOC, we're polled to be losing positions over time. This is most unfortunate. Back when SMP folding meant something, we had some more competitive numbers (we were folding in the top 20 for ppd, iirc). Of course we never held a candle to the [H]orde at that time, but I digress. We'd have to rob a bank at this point to make it into the top 20; we'll barely be holding onto our top 40 position after a little while. Reddit has made a huge comeback this year, too.

Solution: You guys buy me a titan XP, and I'll sell my current GPU to get folding money with it.

200?!

That could CRUSH most every team out there (140-200 MILLION ppd) and they're just sitting there gathering dust? I'm about to cry!
