    I did find it sort of hilarious that after returning to the fold (pun intended) it took me a week to double my lifetime score XD

    CPUs/GPUs have come a long way :p

    What were you folding on before out of interest, and for how long?

    IIRC a Core2 era Xeon dual quad core Poweredge server, a 4Ghz i3, a GTX470 and a 9600GSO, I forget how long for.

    you guys are doing pretty well considering how many of you are only folding now, just looked at EOC stats if few more that use to fold was still at it, ba , aceme ect you guys would be flying!! for a minute I ended up downloading FAH haha, but been mostly cpu and only a 270x, seems pointless, 11 hours for 50k points with a r9 270x!

    I haven't folded for a while now. No point on the hardware i have now, only an i5-7200U laptop.

    Doesn't take much, just a healthy aversion to looking at the power bill :D

    But its actually got a bit better lately, yes a 2080Ti uses a bit of power, but it pushes more PPD than 4 1070's and 2x a 1080ti

    I've gone from 4 1070's a 1080Ti and a Radeon Vega 64 to 2 x 2080Ti's and I'm doing more PPD at less watts than before.

    And I get a little bit of FoldingCoin back to pay a fraction of the power bill :p

    22Million, finally. It's slow going with a single Radeon 380. Will give it a rest until winter arrives.
