    our production has dropped sharply, but so has that of most other teams: is it another tinker storm? what unit are you folding now?
    in case, hold tight and will ride this one through :)

    8 of my last 10 were tinkers.

    edit: 6 were tinkers, 2 gromacs

    I have 3 Gromacs WUs and haven't seen a Tinker WU for over a week.

    so why do you think the production has dropped so sharply?
    this is our output for the last few days

    Since it's summer, it may be that those machines which are connected with universities, including SDSU and UC Davis, have been cleaned off and are ready to be re-imaged for the next term.

    Rower and Bertinmann may be able to enlighten us about their labs.

    I have no idea what you guys are talking about (tinkers?) but in the past 2 days I've contributed 4 work units... :p I know I know... it's not a lot but I've got laundry to fold too! But my new PC is chuggin' away as fast as it can. My iBook ain't folding because then the fan stays on the whole time which... I'm not a fan of... ahahahaha... no really... that's why.

    That's great. I wish I was contributing as much, but it's going slowly for me. Thanks for helping.

    Yes, the iBook shows how hard it works and the other machines just go all the time.

    I had a p909 that died at 99 percent. I got some credit for it, but I can't remember ever finishing one. They all seemed to have blown up, ever since the first one arrived with the Gromacs core.

    On another note, I woke up to find that my dual 800 had a kernel panic 7 hours earlier. :( It's a good thing my G3/800 just keeps going.

    I'm just about halfway through a 400 frame WU... could someone quickly explain how you know if you have a tinker or gromac?

    :confused:

    The easiest way is to look at the protein name and look it up on this page: http://vspx27.stanford.edu/psummary.html

    I was wondering how long it takes someone to run a project on their G5 system w/2 processors running at 2.0 GHz...is the F@H program multi-processor aware? Just curious!!

    Agreed. Getting tinkers on both of my machines for the past couple of days.

    Couldn't figure out why my # of units was holding steady until I checked the Stanford site. I hadn't really gotten them before, though I'd read some complaints about how they're slow-going.

    You need to run 2 clients in seperate folders on your HD and you need to change the machine # on one of them to 2 instead of 1.

    There is an extensive FAQ, you might want to take a look at it.

    Your first WU will almost always be a Tinker. It is used to calculate how fast your processor is in real life (not Mhz wise) and then assign WU's accordingly (some of the time.... during a Tinker storm, no-one is spared)

    My first folding is still only 70% done. It does about 1% every 9-13 minutes so it should be done by 1 in morning i hope.

    Ah lets se....

    30 * 11 = 330......330/60 = 5.5 hours..WOOOHOOO lol haha

    Do any of ya know of an app that will display just the text of how much cpu is being used? Kinda like the app cpu temperature does, no window...just text. Im on jaguar

    Consider yourself lucky! You could have gotten a Tinker. :D

    Seriously, everyone gets at least one. Welcome to the real world. ;)
