Default Does no one fold anymore?

What happened? Rising Ontario electricity costs to blame?

Whut? We're still putting out 3.3 million PPD, and just passed NCIX in the ranks.

Some of us got tired of being talked down to by the staff over at their forums. ;)

I've been considering flashing it back up though.

I kinda gave up because it started to feel like a rat race. They really clamped down on ways to make points, and anything not current generation hardware eats huge penalties.

I don't mind giving my 'time' to charity, but if you're going to make it difficult...no thanks

I fold for Curecoin and Foldingcoin, which I exchange for Bitcoin, which helps offset my operating costs somewhat. Otherwise yeah, it was starting to get too expensive to keep it up.

I meant that the forums are pretty dead here with regards to folding. I find my PC is still fairly capable with folding though.

I lost all my Bitcoins to some stupid alternate coins during the craze

Lost interest in it whenever I ran into issues no one was able to help since they were always unique and weird issues. Than started paying for hydro and it wasn't an extra expense I could burden myself with.

I fold for another team. However core 21 WU's make me want to quit. They lag my rig out hardcore to the point where I can't browse or watch simple videos at the same time.
