    You may wish finding out the daily cost if you let it run. The first thing you need is the wattage rating. For instance my intel cpu is rated 145 watt at 4.0 Gigahertz. Multiply this by the hours it ran approximately in one day. 145 watt * 24h = 3480 watt hours per day. Next divide by 1000. 3480 / 1000 = 3.48 kwh per day. Most cities as far as I know have a rate they charge by the killowatt hour for instance here it is 13.9 cents so I would multiply 3.48 kwh * $0.139 = 48 cents per day. So $15 a core per month should be something to be aware of. I stopped folding with my cpu because at the same wattage 240,000 points per day more with my GPU than my CPU I feel like 15 dollars a month would be wiser spent on a private super data center rather than 40,000 my cpu achieves. I will only turn on my cpu again if someone starts gaining on me by exactly 1 less than 40,000 ppd or more. Or if Phillyman starts leading by 340,000 PPD.

    My PC is 7 years old so I've no way to win, but have entered the fray just to move us up a few slots on the overall team top list. I can get roughly 6,000 points per day with my i5 cpu and Nvidia GT640 card. Pocket change in the grand scheme of things. *huggles* Areala

    Hi. It's me - you know, I declare my return every six months and disappear after a week - it's embarrassing but I get so busy that it's all I really do... Anyways. I have on a USB drive of mine a decent number of fanzine .pdfs I've accumulated over the years. Here's the full list: Concept Nr. 5 Fantazine Nr. 1-5, 8 Paradox Nr. 1-3, 9, 11/12 (double issue), 13-19 Project Ignition Nr. 1 The Gameroom Blitz 1, 2/3 (double issue), 4-7 In total, that's roughly thirty .pdfs if I have my count correct. These .pdfs don't take up much room, but they do clutter my USB drive unnecessarily, and, as I'm running out of room on it, I want to clear some room on it for .pdfs I actually need and will use - e.g. books on composition, music theory, etc. So if anyone wants them, now is your chance to grab them. There's a possibility that some of these are not even on the Internet anywhere anymore - though obviously I can't verify that claim. (The Paradox website is still up, though many issues I have are not online on it, as is the website The Gameroom Blitz website is up and has all seven issues of TGB, the Concept issue, and the last issue of P:I, as for the rest, I've no idea.) So if anyone wants them for themselves or for future fanzine archival on Retromags, now is your chance.

    https://archive.org/details/FantazineNo.5 Here it is. Forgive the identifier - a silly and foolish mistake that I find myself unable to change.
