We're gaing on Team MacNN! Only 290.1 points in it. Well be back in position 40 soon enough.

Keep crunching.

EUGLUG isn't far behind either. The Univ of Alabama will pass soon, so two steps forward then 1 step back.

Our output has been very steady lately.

Madamimadam, you are very close to me! Less than one point between us!
To those who thought they could take over my position... watch out, I have reoptimised to take advantage of the CPU cycles I have been wasting and I am out to reclaim my place.

Kewl...challenges. Of course, I'm only at # 20 right now. Maybe a few more weeks...

Madamimadam... LOL

You've already passed me... seems that I'll have to activate both processors on my machine... then we'll see...

what position? 45?


hehehe.....ah, nobody has noticed how I've been swiftly moving up the ranks in the last 2 1/2 weeks since I started....you're lucky that the script to use both processors makes my machine act a little strange after a while....cause I only have one active processor because of that.

I've been moving up pretty fast...Goin for the top 20 in another 3 weeks or so....we'll see....if they stop giving me little units I'll get up there quickly...

Your new machine is serving you well, tea'. Glad to see some good numbers coming out of that "ultimate" configuration.

We should overcome team euglug in a few hours.

Then our ascension will turn into decension, since a teams a few places back have higher output. But we should be in the top 40 for a while.

So goes the distributed computing experience.

That's a bit harsh.... I am at 16... the one at 45 was a mistake I made when I typed in the wrong name and let it run for a while

Don't worry dude, I took it all fun.... I should have put a smilie or something in there.

I was going great for Top 15 but then I finished setting up my new website and I took F@H off the Oracle server and halved its capacity on the Web Server.

Both my systems have been rather constipated these past few days -- they're slogging through the misnamed p145_1L2Yunf protein that should be given to only fast processors.

They must need the results for this thing bad that every available processor is set to the task.

Alabama passed this morning/late last night.

Back down to #40

I have had 2 of these in a row now. They take a long time to crunch even on my 1Ghz G4.

I just got another one of them. They take a while on my dual 1.25...probably about 17ish hours....depending....I usually run FAH when im not here so I dont know for sure, but I can imagine them taking several days on an older machine.....yuck!

Just got back home... this morning, my 500Mhz g3 was 86% through it, and now it's at %98. Being online, running Yahoo Messenger and osX Mail will slow processing a bit.

I can imagine. They take 110 hours on my G3/400 which isn't otherwise occupied and about 75 hours on each processor of my dual 800.

I am only estimating here, but, I think those proteins take about 30-40 hours on my Dual 1Ghz G4. However, as we know, folding only uses 1 processor per instance.

30-40 hours? Wow. I am running folding only on my PC (my macs... wouldn't be able to handle folding) and protein 146 takes approximately 16 hours.

I am shocked by the time it takes on the mac. Is folding optimized for PCs?

Per instance of what? Certainly not one per machine.

Tomasz:

It's not that folding is so much optimised for PCs, but Motorola's processors are just pathetic and the compilers within GCC have been only acceptable. If they would re-compile with the v3.1 instead of 2.95, the executable code should realise about a 15 percent gain in speed, we are told.

Just saw that we reached 37 Place on Folding stats. However, the team page seems to be out of date (I read this on another page).
