    Re: TeamPlayerGaming Folding Team

    Well, after over 4 years of steady Folding and over 78,000,000 folding points, I'm going to finally throw in the folding towel (ba-dum ching).

    I've watched the team grow to nearly 50 members and then slowly decline to one final die hard (yours truly). For a short time the team was in the top 300 of all folding teams, and currently stands at about 325. Not bad at all when you consider some of the competition. I hope our contributions have helped further the understanding of protein folding to some small extent.

    Two factors have pushed me to finally stop folding. First, one of the fans on my GPU gave out. It was under warranty, but it still cost me to ship it back for repair. I'm sure my constant folding was a major factor in its early demise.

    Secondly, due to ever increasing energy costs at home, I recently purchased a Kill-A-Watt monitoring device, which allows accurate estimation of electricity use by various appliances. My major concern was the old refrigerator in the garage, which I assumed would be a huge energy hog. It is (estimated $174 annual electricity cost), but my folding PC beats it, hands down: $292. Nearly $300 dollars a year! Ouch!

    While I can hope that that money hasn't gone to waste, I don't really know that my > $1200 folding cost over the past 4+ years has really helped that much in the advancement of science. If the folding scientists could point to a real clinical breakthrough based on their data, I'd feel more justified in continuing. As it is, I just can't afford to keep at it.

    I hope someone with greater resources (business PC's, perhaps) will jump in and fill the void. I might fold occasionally as finances allow. But for now, I'm done.

    Adios, Team 204219!
