    • It's working out better than we all expected and 72 hours should be the normal for foldathons no matter what time of year.
      3
    • Let's try a 96 hour challenge.

There is no damn way I could turn everything up to 11 outside of the winter months. It's just above freezing outside and with two windows open the ambient temp in the office has still been in the 80s. 

 

I don't mind 72 in the winter but 48 is a lot easier to commit to the rest of the time.

Need window fans drawing air in. 

 

I have this one in the dungeon and it works very well.

That is a lot of work, isn't it? 

 

One of my machines restarted today for a forced update that it couldn't install and basically wasted my time waiting for it to try and patch then unpatch itself. I couldn't imagine babysitting so many cards so I think you are awesome for hosting them all.

I already have a fan in the window and a box fan circulating air through the room. It's just a small room to have so much hardware in. Also on the 2nd floor so even though I have the vents shut to that room to keep the heat from the HVAC out, it still gets the heat rising through the floor.

My first time doing a foldathon and it's been fun to see my output and everyone else's charted. I never did them on OCN, despite folding like 4000 WUs over 10 years.

 

My only problem is that since I offered up prizes, I have to ship them and I assume pay for shipping. We can afford it no problem (duh I have a 4090), but I am concurrently selling things on ebay and already going and shipping those things out. Well actually I ride with my wife and she handles it while I sit in the car and chain smoke at the Post Office.

 

It wouldn't be fair at all to ask someone who won a prize to pay shipping for it, but this will probably be a one-time thing.

No one expects you to contribute prizes for every foldathon. This is not the first event where prizes have been issued either by individual members or through EHW directly. But you assume correct, if you offer a prize, you are responsible for getting it to the winner. They are however responsible for getting their contact information to you in a timely manner if they expect to collect.

Of course. And I am more than willing to pay for shipping and knew that when I offered prizes. Also, I never said nor was I trying to infer that anyone expects me to offer prizes every foldathon.

 

I am actually happy to get rid of them as everything I offered is just sitting unused and I failed in selling them on ebay, I just wish we didn't have to pay shipping, that's all. Hopefully the things I offered get put to good use instead of sitting in my personal storage taking up space (I have tons of game consoles and tech stuff and boxes for pc parts and other stuff back there)

Yeah shipping is why a lot of time people just do cash prizes via PayPal or whatever. I was lucky that when I sent out like 30 NVMe drives as prizes that one time it only ended up being like $50 to ship via USPS.

 

Speaking of which, Michele is salvaging some rigs this month so there might be some more drives or RAM coming soon.
