Its a weekend at a school, give it a few hours till the morning when more can be released. We have run on the edge for a few months with only one infusion that gave us quite a bit of extra for a few days (almost 2 weeks actually) and we have run short only this weekend in the past few hours.

I have often wondered how you could exactly match resources to work in a distributed computing project. The short answer is that you can't. You either have a big backlog building up, or you don't have enough work. That is simple math.

Also, the economics of falling GPU prices indicates that some work can be moved in-house. I think that is part of why POEM is pulling out. I take that into account in deciding when/if to update cards.
