    Rickoic And BTracy slowing down for summer?

    You guys preparing for the heat or got some crazy WUs.

    Hope there hasn't been any hardware disasters. Rick's drop is very sharp and sudden.

    Well as I moved from the Texas Panhandle to North Mississippi in Dec 2010 my output decreased then. Finding a new home didn't go as smoothly as expected so for over a year my wife and I lived in an old trailor house which wasn't wired too well so my output though good couldn't hold up under the adverse electrical condidions so output dropped to around 1,000 per day on a PS3. Finally after fighting Freddie Mac for 6 months we managed to acquire a new home. It's not completely set up the way I want for folding yet and it will probably take about a year for full recovery.

    But I have my PS3 folding and my laptop folding now with a GPU and a SMP (4 core). PS3 does about 1004 points per day (assuming it doesn't get turned off by electric interrupptions) have to get a backup battery to keep it going soon. My laptop has a mobile gpu in it which is getting around 2000 points per day and depending on what wu my smp gets I seem to be averaging between 3000 and 4000 points per day.

    But your right about summer time. Not a hot here in Mississippi as Texas, but electricity is still expensive so don't look to increase much this summer.
