As a precaution, my farm, along with all of our other machines are being turned off in preparation for Hurricane Ike, although we are several Hundred Miles inland. Anyway, so over the weekend, there will be little to absolutely no numbers until probably Tuesday.

Be safe for yourself and family. Shutting down the 'farm' will help to prevent more serious damage to it.
Hope the hurricane looses its punch quickly, with the least cost to life and limb.. and property!

By preserving your equipment, you'll keep it ready to Fold another day.

Thanks for keeping us apprised. Good luck. 8)

In the same boat (and city) as him. Should be bringing my folding equipment back online within the next 2 days. How was the wind over on your side of town?

I am folding again, but now only on 20 + about 7 or 8. Instead my previous 40ish. Apparently when we lost power and it came back on, the circuit I had about 12 of these machines on blew and then they realised 12 machines were on one circuit and asked me not to have 12 machines on 1 circuit. So right now I am not using that circuit. Anyway, I am trying, or going to be trying to move things around and see what I can do.

The average decent computer will draw around 180 watts or so. Add the monitor, and you are likely just over 200 watts. Ten of those setups would equal 2 Kw, or about 17 amps on a 120 volt circuit. Most AC branches are set for 15 amps max. Might be a good idea to find a 220 volt line branch, and use the PSU's 230 volt input. About 1/2 the current used at 120 volts!
