Now that life has slowed down a bit...I'm faced with tough choices:

1. Game and lose a minimum of 35 K PPD per hour while gaming
2. Buy another new video card

Obviously, it's choice 2...come on EVGA 1080 FTW hybrid or hybrid cooler package for Titan X Pascal! :D

Of course, once you make choice 2...it doesn't solve anything as you have to make the choice again!

:facepalm:

I have found some games that let me fold and game at the same time (Civilization V...I hope Civilization VI will let me do the same!)

This gives me an idea for an app...with a single click:

- Pauses a specific folding slot or slots (GPU, 2 GPUs, CPU, etc - whatever you put into preferences)
- Launches the game (drag and drop short cuts from your desktop)
- When the game exits, unpauses the slot(s)

I have forgotten to turn the folding slot back on after exiting a game...and have lost valuable points!

Would anybody else be interested in this?

OK - I have a prototype working that can launch a Windows shortcut.

Now for the drag and drop!
