Slowly but


Well since my home/business got flodded on Mothers day of this year and most of my rigs plus Laptops went to the water gods plus my insurance company giving me the big (sorry, sewer backups are not covered as flood) excuse. I lost 6 folding rigs 1 server and 3 new Dell laptops not to mention the damage to my house but hey there is a brighter side to life right? YES

Well I am back ladies and gentleman, I have been folding on a skeleton crew of a bunch of P4 systems but now it's time to bring the big guns out. I just got 2 quad systems up (folding Virtual) and for now 2 8800gt's, 4 8600gt's. In the works is another 8 8800gt's and some more p4 systems (about 40 ).

So who ever passed me in the last couple of months I am coming for you.

Yeah, I noticed that

I'm coming back from vacation, and in building up my PPD average, you dropped off, then suddenly came back.

Congrats on getting some heavy duty folding rigs going again!

Well, as I was about to add a new card, I was going to make some comment about staying ahead of you. But it looks like you are adding a new card every two days. I can't keep up with that !

So, you passed me last night. Congrats!

I'm going to try and catch up, if you run out of money. I'll keep adding cards as I can. But it will be a while...

Fold on dude!

Thanks for the kind word guys. Torin I am sorry for passing you a second time but hey you have come a long way so keep it up.

I do hate insurance companies with a passion. One pay an arm and a toe for coverage and then if and when something happens they make you jump through so many hoops it is ridiculous.

Now for the toys

I am going to be building a new rig with 4 8800GS cards and a second rig that will be showcased in my shop so hopefully I can sell these things to people. Not for folding purposes but for home systems. I will have pics up when I am finished with the builds.
