24\7 and power bills.
My roomate is of the opinion that the sudden rise in the power bill here is due to my system folding 24\7. I have tried to explain to him about leganfuh's folding farm and it's power consuption. I have told him that my system was going 24\7 long before this sudden upshot, and that something else must be causing this. so to prove it I will only be folding part time for now. sorry for the points loss, but some people are dense and need to be clubbed with the truth before thay will except it.The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

It would have been the second psu, but the bill went up (some) before that. and after doing the math My system is about 1/3 of the of the draw here. figuring on a ball park of 1250 watts per hr, that's 30,000 w/h per day so 30Kw/h a day multilpied by 30 days is 900 Kw/h out of 2616 is 1716 for everything else. I need a kil-a-watt meter to see what I'm really drawing. I honestly don't think I'm pulling as much as that fo what I'm runing but I don't know for sure. i do know that $304 for the month is ridiculous for the amount of power we're using. Bandits....The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
