1. Leaving tonight for extended stay with my mother. Turns 92 Thursday and took a bad fall last Friday. So need to be with her for awhile.

2. Anyone folding BigAdv work units needs to be aware that come April the minimum core requirement changes to 24 cores.
Also on January 31, 2015 the BigAdv program is scheduled to come to an end.

What the future of machines with many cores is has not been announced as yet. But anyone thinking of upgrading or purchasing a new pc for folding needs to be aware that it appears that the future of fah is going to be GPU's.
So in my estimation the way to go is with a motherboard that will handle 2, 3 or even 4 graphics cards which will require a bigger power supply than normal.

Hope to be back folding soon.
