Good for us.

We have been increasing production.

Don't get complacent - we have just been laying out some new little white picket fences for our shrubberies. :cool:

Just need to work out where we put our coconut shells and we will be after you again... :rolleyes:

Our points have been so inconsistent lately, i don't know if those stats are doing too well right now. Just keep folding, hopefully the jumps will just iron out over time - and hopefully at a nice 10,000 a day?

Yep, with my move I am way off on points. I have to get almost all of my machines back on-line. I have started a couple today. We really have some quick new blood on the team.

But I'm small potatoes anyway. Sometime soon I'll be back up and adding my small bit...

well i got toasted... and I dont have time to set the comps up again. the blaster virus hit the lab after all and no one was there to save it...

MrMacMan
Aug 18, 2003, 08:46 PM
A Combo of Blaster + Labs = Tons of PC's Affected and Labs especially because no one around to fix em.


Also that the East Coast is still being affected by the outage.

Hopefully we will rebound.

I can't wait until I get my new PowerBook, I'm going to start folding and help the team out the best I can. All those long hours of typing research papers into the long hours of the night might help to settle the score...

Great, every bit counts! If you can get a PC you will get about 4 times the output :(

Team KWSN are right in our tail(s). We need to put in some real CPU-horsepower now. I for one am back folding after a long absence. I have during my leave slipped to 114th place but I have my heart bent on returning to the top-100! Wish me luck! :)

Yes, they do, I guess that they take longer if you're in a) an elevator or b) a forum! Currently these farts should vanish after Sept. 2. Hopefully, we'll get some more labs and G5's crunching in the upcoming year and come back strong! :)

Help, is there a mc68k in the house?
I Have 3 Macs folding using the Graphical Client and want to switch to the Console Version. I don't think I'll have any Problems setting it up using FAH3Console-OSX.tgz ,SP_Folding.dmg-link.dmg and FoldingProgress.jar ( Knock Knock )
My Question / assumption is when my current WU finishes On Each Mac, do i just dump the new / just started WU by dragging the folder to the trash, or does the Console Client pick up the new WU? Just rid the Dock / Desktop of the the Graphical Icons and Start the Console Client?

MrMacMan
Aug 25, 2003, 11:19 AM
Plutronics -- you want to switch *after* the graphical client finishes its WU.

The console version will be installed differently and will ask for a new WU.

After the WU is uploaded then delete the grahpical client and install the console one.

Sir Fart

Considering your Mac orientation, and their renown graphic abilities, I'm always surprised by the "look" of your forum :( .

I've 2 Macs Finishing WUs by suppertime, hope to scrape a few more cycles out of the of these two. the wife's iMac has 3 users all of whom will give me their cycles !! Just my user does now.
I've an Idea , how big of a USB Drive dongle / key drive dohicky would one need and is it possible to run folding off of the solid state drive so i can let my harddrives spin down and lessen the noise? (etc. ,etc. )???

Hopefully, it will stave off the Knights that little bit more. :)

The smallest one should work fine, do they even make anything smaller than 32 or 64 now?

I just finished a 250 and a 500 WU today, now working on two 50s that should be done by late dinnertime. By this time tomorrow, I should have double my current output. And this is before I get to school and force my roommates to fold for me, mwahaha!:D

Nice :)

You do realize that there are 9 pointers that are 200 steps, and 54 pointers that are 100 steps? The number really mean nothing, you have to go to the psummery to find out how big the units are.

Well XP crashed again when I was at 92% with a 200 WU and after restarting, I am stuck back at te beginning and only at 8%...this is the 5th time it has crashed and caused me to lose my WU!

Plutronics
Aug 27, 2003, 08:12 PM
So I guess that means our slower G4 turtles will win the race after all? Sorry to hear your crashin', I gave away my Compac Win98 becuse it cost me more time than it saved me. Plutronics runs on a Pismo 400 MHz G3 now. uuuuh, Excell I think it is ! Appleworks Spreadsheet just didn't cut it.

We gotta cut off those knights at the ni! Mac OS X to the rescue. (Imagine that, rescuing a Mac team with Macs!)

Well, my 9 points this morning will make the difference, I'm certain. :D Okay, I suppose all those other points will do it then.

I like the mac os x theme. Did you try that? They should prob edit it a little to give it a new panther look to make it snazzier.

I dunno what's going on, but I'm getting a lot of partial credit units (giving me 1 point every once in awhile). I wish the core would be updated again to fix this.

I don't know, but Rower is making it up! If we can get both of them folding again we can probably get into the yellow again.

They've probably been resetting all the machines in the lab for the start of term. Maybe they've been shifted from mc68k to Rower since they're all the same machines. :)

mc68k and I have swapped labs - I'm now getting credit for the PCs and him for the Macs.

You guys will have to ask him what he's doing with them, though. ;)

Maybe Rower's Machines have finally been re-connected to the internet?

But that would mean low points and a ton of points being droped every 1-3 days... in a cyclic relationship...

:(

But if he did change the machines over.... we have a problem... they are outputting alot worse then before
