And our intercept with MacAddict has been moved up to September 14, 2003! We are out crunching them by 600 pts a day! Keep up the crunching! And great job to everybody who has contributed even one work unit!

Oh, and we currently have no threats set to overtake the team!

Let's not think small... At the rate we're picking up steam, I say let's shoot for slaughtering them in ten weeks or less. That undercuts our current projections by a couple weeks.

Y'know, we need some cheerleaders or something in our corner.

Any contribution is a good contribution. Think of it this way, right now we are gaining on AthlonXP at a rate of 34 points a day. Lets say that your rate on your eMac is 10 pts a day. You now have single handedly increased our gain on AthlonXP by 33%!!

Keep on folding!

does folding use any ports that i should have to worry about. actually im not really worried. my parents have sensitive data but knowing that we are running os x and 2 firewalls behind our network i really dont feel to need to worry. if you guys tell me i have nothing to worry about i have a 2ghz p4 and a dual 1.25ghz g4 i can run this stuff on. please dont lie to me either to get me to do it,lol. i know its tempting

the text based is easier and more transparent with my scripts. the GUI uses only one processor and takes up more CPU whether you have the app hidden or not.

whatever you're comfortable with is best. make sure you're getting the most out of you're machine.

Not meaning to be pedantic, but it's probably actually just a 400 frame protein, rather than 400 points. Check the points page (as given by mc68k (http://folding.stanford.edu/psummary.html)), to see how much your particular protein is worth.

I'd like to say that it not even close... my iMac uploads every 2-3 days... Don't expect so much from 1 eMac. :D (unless it is the little eMac that could, then it can do anything)

Wow sudden rush is members, which cave did you people come out of so I can recruit some more people. :D

Did you guys never DC before or something...?

The FAQ page should help you out. For the mac we all love mc68k's scripts (single and dual) and then use one of the 2 progress apps out there. If you have PC and Mac you probably want the one that runs on JAVA (bousozoku's app) because it is cross platform...
Good luck, good folding.

you should be able to make the dealine unless heavy apps are running more than 80% of the time. (guess) but you should be fine if less.
12-14 days should be enough for your iBook, anything more is kinda streching the processor (time limits).

paste this line into a terminal to do a quick check on which proteins you have.

cd ~/F@H1/; cat FAHlog.txt|grep Protein:; cd ~/F@H2/; cat FAHlog.txt|grep Protein:

the script makes two folders each of which are independent. sometimes they get the same protein but they crunch independently.

i am using the graphical program from their site. it really didnt matter, i just wanted to know if each processor crunched the same one at the same time or 2 different ones (even if they are the same).

my scripts place the data files in ~/F@H1 and ~/FAH2

so when you ran the GUI program you were crunching a third independent protein :)

hey guys. once again im thinking of quitting folding. sorry but my computer is just barely too slow it seems (800mhz g4 imac)

i just spent 2 weeks folding a 70pt WU deadline was 14 days i finished on today (the 14th day) and got no credit for it. and now i have been given another 14 day deadline WU.

seems like my mac is just barely too slow for folding. i am thinking ill shut it down until they get altivec enabled. there just doesnt seem to be any reason for me to continue since i cant complete any of the workunits fast enough for them to count.

its rather frustrating because there are people with PIIs and PIIIs folding and yet my g4 mac cant keep up. clearly the mac app is poorly written.

Rower_CPU
Mar 30, 2003, 12:42 AM
Sorry to hear that, AL.

If you're doing work that comes in after the deadline and you get no points it's tough to justify the CPU cycles, so I understand.

Hopefully people are being vocal about Altivec support in upcoming cores. (hint, hint)

AmbitiousLemon
Mar 30, 2003, 12:47 AM
yeah iwas actually kidna happy when i got taht 70pt unit. thought it would really help. and the most annoying thing is a made it in time. at least i thought so. i finsihed within 14 days. i finsihed early on the 14th day. but i guess the deadline means you ahve to finish before the day starts not before the day ends. so yo really only have 13 days. i was so close too. literally finsihed minutes after the deadline.

from talking with people who run RC5 it sounds like altivec has made a huge difference. Mac teams jumping way ahead of the others. i dont see why it has taken stanford so long to get altivec support. the campus just like berkeley and most tier one schools are almost all macs. you would think their cs department would see the value in supporting all the macs they have on campus. here at berkeley seti is running on almost every computer on campus. id assume it would be the same at stanford. ill have to check next time im over there.

All you need to do is have the machine 1% more idle and you got your 70 pointer in the bag.

The mac core sucks. When they finnally give us gromac core it should help us all out.

well ive left it running. i figure i cant even tell its running and it takes more effort to turn it off than to let it keep rolling.

ive actually not been using my computer much the past couple weeks so i dont think there is any chance of giving it more idle time.

we'll see. the wu i worked on isnt on the project list anymore so ill never get it again. maybe this 14 day deadline one is smaller just by enough.

A) process viewer
b) terminal 'top' command
If FahCore_65.exe is running good, your on your way. :D

BTW: I have iMac 800 G4 and it completes all WU fine and easily beats the dealine. :rolleyes:

Edit: What the hell is wrong AL? You just uploaded a 55 pointer? Your stats (http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/userpage?name=AmbitiousLemon)

i just spent 2 weeks folding a 70pt WU deadline was 14 days i finished on today (the 14th day) and got no credit for it. and now i have been given another 14 day deadline WU.

seems like my mac is just barely too slow for folding. i am thinking ill shut it down until they get altivec enabled. there just doesnt seem to be any reason for me to continue since i cant complete any of the workunits fast enough for them to count.

its rather frustrating because there are people with PIIs and PIIIs folding and yet my g4 mac cant keep up. clearly the mac app is poorly written.

It's too bad that your G4 iMac is so slow since my PowerMac G3/400 and other people's G3s keep producing. Is it running 24/7?

Yeah its kinda fishy when much slower computers finish way faster than what your saying...

it has to do with the benchmarking that the folding app does. slower machines will not be given large WUs. I have been given the largest work units available and my machine just isnt up to snuf.

AL, I hope you can get everthing working, because we sure could use the help.

For the first time since I have been monitoring the stats on this page (http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/folding/teams/detail_3446.html) we have someone crunching faster than we are behind us. ABIT is outpacing us only by 160 points a day. I am sure that we can increase production to match them. (Expecially since we added 18 new members in the last 7 days. :):))

And once again a hearty thanks to all the one computer members out there. Our teams huge increase in speed is in no small part due to your contributions.... Thanks and keep folding!

If you check out this page:

http://folding.stanford.edu/psummary.html

you will see that the 70 point wu have a 50 day deadline.

that has been changed.

the wu i was working on isnt on the list anymore.

i dont see why everyone feels they have to argue with me.

I believe you AmbitiousLemon. But I would consider this more of a fluke than a normal occurrence. I had a 400Mhz iMac complete several. I bet your machine is just on the edge of qualifing for the big ones. hopefully they will start sending smaller units...

AL,

the last recorded WU (http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/userpage?name=AmbitiousLemon) for you was completed on 2003-03-29 23:02:10.

this was a 629 worth 55.5 points...was this the protein they gave you, or was this another machine that turned this in?

the 73 pointers were only the 626 and 627.

My computer is realy slow (200 mhz P1) but i run it 24/7. It always misses the deadline (currently 14 day one and it'll take maybe 18 days to finish) but I still get the credit for it. As far as I know if you miss the deadline the team still gets the points (i've added only like 3 points since i started cause of the time it takes) but the work doesnt go to the good cause cause your folding is thrown away (maybe given to another computer?) cause it took so long. So if your doing it for the cause then being too slow maters an there is no point but if your doing it for team mac rumors then keep folding cause your pounts will count, just take a while to show up.

But I told you that before his post... god damnit, even in the forums no one reads and pays attention.

jesus, I don't lie on forums, whats the point of lieing here?
That was 3 hours before you posted your next post.

Whatever it doesn't matter, it just shows the level that everyone reads eachother posts.

Anyway we should really not talk much further. Your unit got counted, you skimmed over my post and didn't notice.Oh well.

where did ABIT USA come from!!!!! they are out folding us and last time i checked a couple of days ago no one was close to doing that up to 23rd place and all the way down as far as i botherted to check. MSU arte annpoying me cause every time i see we grow 16, 17, 189 and now 20 in a week or so they respond with the same improvement though on the brightside they were destroying us not so long ago, lets hope we can push a bit more and catch them a little faster, plus i'd love to get in the top 20's this year, you think it'll be like'l, be great to pass a team named after linux too ;-)

ABIT is a hardware manufacture...

I don't expect there output to increase much because it is probably only Company Machines...

Unless really happy customers gave units... but they are gaing, oh no, in 2004 watch out!

:p

Now they are going to overtake us September 2003.. . . They have a 400 point gain on us daily. Someone has dropped some serious power over there.....

Let's just not get too comfortable on our production of units. We still could use some more. :):)

On a side note, team Mac OS X is in our crosshairs.... Overtake date in September 2003.
Macaddict is still in June 2003 even though we have increased our production and we are now out producing them by nearly 1200 points daily!!

And so far today we have added two new members.... Welcome chibianh and andrewlandry! Keep on recruiting!

im still amazed on how we are doing so good considering my p4 is cranking these wu's out left and right and my powermac dual 1.25 isnt doing good at all. i know its all altivec that is slowing us down, i would just assume most pc computer would have us whooped because they are so much faster at this.

Also: Watch out for:
General [M]ayhem, they have been creeping on the stats around our production for a while but finally ourproduced us and are currently set to beat us in 2016, well I expect maybe in a year or 2 we might see then near us in stats.
:rolleyes:

ABIT is outproducing us by 500 a day... bah.
