    I just thought I'd make this thread to replace whats going on in the "Official Folding@Home thread" as that is getting ridiculously long, and some info might be useful and some might not (to other readers) and traversing a great big multi-page thread isn't great fun.

    Oh yes, I seem to have 2 100 frame Gromacs running on my Athlons at the moment... and I've recruited a new P4 laptop, (Panasoinc toughbook). To make sure that it doesn't drain his battery I've set it up to only crunch when mains power is turned on, so it probably wont be a great producer, but its a little extra boost :)

    That sucks! Sorry to hear about it. Just to commiserate, I had three different machines all well into their cycles when I lost power due to a flood here in the Pittsburgh area because of the remnants of hurricane Ivan. Lost much folding time due to outage, etc. Tomorrow will be a better day!

    Actually could not sleep,,tried to do a system restore to a earlier date,,,no help..figure that that unit was hexed,,2nd time around,,,so i went into the folding- folder in programs and removed all the unit data and history,,,and DLed a NEW unit that should go in tomorrow,,,Glenn,,ps the first time I lost it was from hurricane frances,,somehow the system quired it again,,,and ran it , and a storm took it out again ,,,think there were 3 6's 666 in the molicule # as well...not that im stupidsticious lol or anything lol,,but in this case since it is a 3 day unit,,,dumpped it and got a new unit,,,now maybe i can sleep LOL....nite all, Glenn

    PS 10 days no power from frances,,,down alot of folding time here !!!!

    QUESTION if ya still have a modem,,can you dial up ?? just to get units and send them back,,,a quick idea !! also if no dial up,,untill router is fixed,,what about net zero or some CHEEP dial up for folding only,,like 9 bucks a month for emergency dial up on all systems,, ??? Glenn

    no can't do, would have to buy a modem and our phones are via cable too, so we don't have any telephone connection.
    everything goes through the coax cable, tv, internet, phones...

    gotta get a good router this time :)

    It looks like it's payback time. Since I've started folding, I've always been getting all these little, tiny WU's and so I have not had to wait long for updates to my score to happen. Suddenly, I am working on 3 BIG tinkers with long finish times. This is very weird. This change seems to have coincided with my change to the Windows console version from the Windows GUI version. Any thoughts anyone?

    Stanford was sending out those big TINKERS for along time !!! they within the last month were sending out gromacs, ,,gromacs usually run 5-8 hrs,and in addition some HUGE gromacs that ran a good 24hrs,,,a typical TINKER runs 2-3 days,400 ftrames,,, and I have pulled three in a row also, I have a 20 frame tinker now on my P4 and at a 44min frame rate estimated completion is 12 -14 hours, at first when I saw 20 frames thought I would tear through the unit LOL ,,,,NOT,,,will tell you how long it takes,,,but creeping along at the moment.

    Its just a change in what THEY at Stanford need to have processed.


    Now for the windows graphical client on the advanced tab at the bottom,,you can select STANDARD, No Preferance or deadlineless....deadlineless,,,will pull A BIG UNIT,,standard will hopefully pull a gromac and no preferance what ever is in order next to process,,,,but keep in mind that the Folding we do is for STANFORD , and they can send out for processing what at the time is important to them in clinical studies,

    Hope that helps for a overview of how and why the projects change and how to best TRY to get the unit type YOU wish to run, Glenn
