He's got a point, you could pick up one of those big outdoor tents or build a log 'cabin' in your backyard, problem solved!

You could still contribute to folding @ ~ 24K/ppd by running -bigadv WU's and forgoing the GPU side of things. I am pulling ~250 watts from the wall on -bigadv WU's with -SPM7 (34 min/1%) and it’s not too bad on hydro by my estimate.

GPU folding definitely isn't what you should be doing if you are worried about power usage.

My wife has been issuing similar ultimatums lately... Had to pay her off... cheaper than moving I guess.
Man is this getting expensive...
