Hi :flowers:

I thought I would make up a poll regarding how many hours BC users have their computers on. I knwo for a fact that some members leave theirs on all the time and turn it off once a week (Eeek!) Some users are average and spend around 2 hours or under or some probably don't turn it on for less than an hour. I know for a fact that I have my computer on for about 4 hours or under, sometimes it will vary depending on what is goign on on that day but the is basically for me :trumpet:

So how many hours is your PC on for? Also, post why if you want :thumbsup:

David

I voted constantly because three of the four systems I use are always on.
Only my Windows lappy gets shut down when not in use.

PS. My server had uptime over 1 year before I moved.

1. Get an UPS as soon as you can afford such.

2. Set them in a Stainless Steel tray or acid resistant plastic tray.

3. Check the state of the unit every six months.

4. Replace the batteries every ?three years?

or you might burn your house down....

been there, had that happen... I was ignorant...

I have a desktop and 2 laptops, all dual core. I do everything I need to on the desktop and can spend 16+ hours a day sitting here if I don't have anything else to do which isn't too often thank goodness, and is why I have masses of padding on my old reclining office chair, LOL.

The laptops just sit there chugging away at Folding at Home which is something I am fairly passionate about. No particular reason except that it seems a worthwhile thing to do - using your unused PC cycles to help Stanford University find a cure for common diseases. (Now a plug for BC's own F@H Team 38444 which is steadily climbing up the charts :thumbsup: :flowers: ) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/132716/foldinghome-fh-part-deux/.

Darn...I started thinking about the amount of time that I spend here and realized that I need to get a life! :thumbsup:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

We do have spell checker but if your using Micro$oft Internet explorer you have to download additional software. With Firefox its just a right click away
