    Why are most of the top 5 people have a decreasing trend?

    I mean I know the stats are still partially ****ed, but really we lose a good deal of machines recently?

    From everyone? :(

    So Far today we seem to have enough points that Ni! aint gaining on us, but we look pretty sad right now... :(

    It's got to be the points/protein they're giving out. You'll see it reflected more in the big folders than anyone else.

    It's effecting all the teams. Our output is down and so is everyone else's. No worries. :)

    Yeah, GM is a fringe case, but overall we're doing fine.

    Yeah ever since the stats crashed we have been going lower... I suppose when the stats crashed they made harder longer folding units... :(

    Re: Whats going on guys?


    If you remember, bertiman posted not long ago (last week, i think), saying that a large number of his computers were going to be offline for a while.

    Other than that, our trend is slowly on the up again. We broke 7k yesterday for the first time in quite a while. I think the proteins stanford are handing out have become harder recently. From my experience, i added a 2gig P4 and a 1.7 gig celeron on monday(folding during working hours only), and they've only just gotten over halfway through the proteins.....damn 70 pointers....:)

    We're on the up again though, don't worry.

    Man, look at rower specifically.

    By december he might not turn in a unit a day. :eek:

    I know the units are harder and take more time but I still worry.

    I'm still plugging away, but I don't think I'm counting for much. I've been slipping out of the 20th place for while.

    I had to take folding off my TiPB - it might have caused the thing to crash....:D

    So what about the labs this summer? Wasn't someone getting another up and running?

    Hey guys,

    I've been hit pretty hard from my job... never worked full 40 (not stop) hour weeks before.

    I think what happened is that one of the labs that I use is being used by some high school students and they turn them off when they are done. I'll check back next week to set an auto turn on at about 6pm and make sure the services are setup correctly. Other than that I have turned off my home comps completely, and they use to produce 4 units every 3 days themselves.

    As to adding another lab... One of them is off limits because we're trying to get on the good side of the chairman in that department. And the others I decided not to even try because the guy works down the hall and seems to be pretty busy taking each of his comps apart and installing new MB's and CPU's.

    Good news though, my wife called from her vacation and decided since she stole my new PB she'll buy me a G5 :), I didn't even have to ask! :cool:

    In a week I will have my Athlon 2400, that should be able to get about 100 points a day (isn't that about right?).

    should be about right. 3 units every 2 days.

    That's being.....optimistic. I shouldn't think you'll be getting any more than 350 points a week with that.

    looks like we might be getting some steam back into our boilers :).

    I didn't do anything to my comps and yet I got two days of 1k+. I'll still check up on them anyway though.

    Keep up the good work everybody.

    I think my 3 units every 2 days goes with about 300-350 points a week. It IS optimistic though, you'll get a lot of 19 pointers and a few 9 pointers along with the occational big guys.

    All in all, nothing is constant in the scoring because you never have the same sequence of WU's.

    Acctually, I should keep my mounth shut till it happens. Who knows, the old building might fall down because someone yanked too hard on a network cable on the top floor :p.

    Ha, sounds like us, too. We had 2 power outages on Thursday (both less than 15 minutes) due to construction in the area. :rolleyes:

    True.
    Particularly because of how stanford seem to be altering the difficulty of the proteins from time to time. I still have a couple of computers working on really long 70-pointers from last week. They're not yet half-way through! (1.7GHz celeron)

    It's running at about 12 mins a frame. That's just a little slower than my 1gig athlon at home. Probably about right, considering that this one's a celeron..... remember, it's only on during office hours.

    All the same though, it's slow. Just about any other processor at the same MHz would have finished it by now :(

    We had a "planned" outage for one side of the building, so we moved a bunch of important servers to the other side... and they turned THAT side off instead for hours without knowing it! (that was a month ago, but still I wanted to add into that topic :)).

    maybe we should start a new thread: People who run university labs and have funny stories. :)

    Ha, not sure what the reception would be on that one, but it would be funny for us for sure. :D

    I'm looking forward to the construction being done...sometime in '04 if they're on schedule. :rolleyes:
