BTW, don't see any errors or retries in the Log.
Yeah they've been pumping out really large CPU work units for about two weeks. I recorded one at 205000 base credit and it took just under a day for the 5900X to finish. There was a time where I could complete 15+ work units a day with just the CPU.
To answer the question, why I still fold, right now it's to warm up my basement a little. Sadly, I'm having stability issues with CPU folding since those large work units started hitting (I will get back to my PC, log in, and find it's just restarted. Reliability History says "Windows was improperly shut down.") I folded with GPU overnight and it does surprisingly little to raise the room's temperature, compared to the CPU. Was total opposite when I had Vega 64/2700X.
If not for that reason, it's for the team. All the other teams that passed Rage during COVID have stopped producing and we're back on the upswing. We need our place back.
I never looked into learning how to crypto-mine because I worry that it will become an addiction.
