the_Scarlet_oneIt went silent after the bucks stopped for sure. I couldn’t fold anymore because the $400-$500 electric bills were destroying my wallet.
SmookinJoeLook forward to it Scott...Happy Happy Birthday...
SmookinJoeI really miss you guys...and the Ten Bucks toobut mostly you guysThe gripes, the banter...It is the only reason I check inAm I the only one that thinks that our forum is deathly quiet since the program got paused..I say paused cause I expect it to restart..Just a rant from Hopeful me
rjohnson11I went into semi-retirement so my income is lower. Electricity is also priced higher in Europe than the USA so I had to stop daily folding. Once in a while I'll start it up for a few hours.
troy8dI hear ya Joe. I've always been one to fold as much as I can with the hardware I've got rather than a 'bucks folder,' but there the end of the buck program has me questioning how long I should continue to fold (I have no plans to stop folding). To me the EVGA bucks were a nice gesture of appreciation for all the hard work the community puts into their folding effort and the measuring stick to signify that I was making a meaningful contribution (those who have been around a while know better than to look to Pande Group for any appreciation)....snip...
Cool GTXSummer heat, summer outdoor fun, summer time yard work, summer higher electric rate ...... hosting visiting family Maybe by fall it will be my turn to get a 3080Ti .... if not I may actually skip it & wait for 40 series Starting in October the electric rate switches again & hopefully the weather will cool down Life has been more than a little hectic this year ..... So, much less time for the EVGA Forums in general Still folding on 1 - 2080Ti ... 24/7
yodapWhat kind of beer? ~~snip~~
troy8dThe only time I look to upgrade is when I was not able to hit the bucks target set by EVGA.
OpolisWith folding bucks over I have been using my GPUs more for crunching. Still folding occasionally.Also all the things troy8d said.
bill1024Make sure you join team crunching@EVGA when ever you start to crunch a project. Good choice WCG is a good project and a good place to start crunching.My favorite project.
