Seems like we are getting a few more users back onto the team, I am guessing due to winter and the low cost of electricity now? Looks like road-runner is starting up the ol' farm again too! Let us hope, lol. :cheers:

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I feel you. Its 29C where I'm at. On a positive note, Ill be going back to the states in less than a month, where it will be anywhere from -5c - 10c (25-50f ish). I'll start folding on my machines. Its been a long time since I've folded.

I have been crunching some for a team I started awhile back but your correct I needed heat and not turning on the central heat so I cranked them all up. My team is like 190 in ranks Team_Texas but at the point its not really going anywhere anymore with out help so I got tired of being there by myself, figure I would help out the team I started with. Maybe we can move up a couple notches... :whistling:

I feel for you guys, I never fold during the summer, especially here. The A/C is expensive enough and I surely do not need to be adding anymore heat to the air with folding machines, lol! But that is great that you'll be getting back into it once the weather comes down a bit.

And road-runner, I think I remembered you folding for another team when I first started folding here at OCC, but I'm glad that you are back to helping us out a bit, it means a lot. :wub:

I shut mine down after I started getting the electric bill every month. Maybe when I pay off my student loans/car/get a raise I'll come back.
