    I randomly decided to put my computers back in action doing some folding, and decided this time to be on the macrumors team as user oaklandbum (previously I was on the [H]ard|OCP team and a short bit on the MacAddict team with the username of rrp). Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to have everyone list what machines they are using in one thread.

    Here are mine (none of them are on 24/7 as they are in my bedroom and I must sleep):
    450MHz G4 Cube
    Shuttle SS40G with an Athlon XP 2500+

    I'd run it on my old PowerTower too, but there is no Linux PPC version. Anyone wanna donate a G3 or G4 upgrade so I can run OS X?

    I have:
    iBook 600 G3 (not worth it, but it has the "can't wake from sleep" bug so it runs 24/7).
    iBook 800 G4. 10 hours a day.
    Athlon 2.4 24/7, but on a computer used by several people.

    I had another Athlon but it now hangs when folding and the second CPU is in heavy use. Anyone know how to limit a unix process % cpu? I can see how to limit cpu time, but that doesn't seem to be what I would want to do.

    i may have misplaced a few procs, but i do know i am running:

    4 2Ghz G5 (running 24/7) = 8 Ghz
    8 1Ghz G4 (running 24/7) = 8
    2 733Mhz G4 (running 24/7) = 1.466
    1 400Mhz G4 (running 24/7) = 400

    17.866 Ghz (@ 24/7) MacOS

    4 900 Mhz PIII (running 24/7) = 3.6 Ghz
    6 2Ghz Xeon (running 24/7) = 12
    2 1.4Ghz PIII (running 13/5; 24/2) = 2.8 * 0.67 =1.876
    26 2Ghz Xeon (running 13/5; 24/2) = 52 * 0.67 = 34.84

    52.32 Ghz (@ 24/7) Linux

    so, that's about 70 Ghz at a 24/7 rate.

    plus, i have 2 2Ghz G5; 2 500-Mhz G4 at home, currently not running.

    great setup...but shouldn't it be 2x2x4=16ghz for the dual g5's? probably some of those other ones are dual too... folding does use both processors right?

    I hope that someone will post that is in my league. Feel kind of embarrassed to list mine.

    I have a Power Mac dual G4 450 24/7 except a cool down every 7 - 8 days as suggested.

    Hey, you've got my Mac beat. Yours has 2x the processing power of my Cube. :eek: But I do have my PC which is hardly ever on, so that helps a little.

    keep the faith, and let's find a cure.

    I know what you are saying MrMacman, got the same problem @ work. Have a beautifull grey 2.0 P4 sitting idle most of the time. And there are a lot more... Maybe it's an idea to go to my old college and install folding on every machine.... They only remove that in the summerholiday when they do a clean install of all those windoos machines. Is there a script for windoos such as Mc68K's script?

    I don't know about scripts, but there was with (getting name wrong) 'micro-folding application' like with a microscope or something...

    I don't know...

    But it worked for my friend I'll try to find out... unless someone here reminds me first...

    I have tons of Pc's and 3 macs that I have basically complete access over expect they have a proxy server in the way, anyone want to help me config them?

    Shouldn't be a problem if they got access to the internet and if the firewall has the correct port open! (I believe for folding, correct me if I am wrong!!, 8080).

    So good luck MrMacman, and try to catch up with me.... ;)

    Thank you for your kind words shemp9999. I agree with you. I also volunteer in medical research here in Boston, It is to help my fellow human beings.

    Thanks to my wife I have added her PowerBook 1.25. Also the iBook that I use when I'm in our MBR.

    I had 6 G5s going for us, but my school did a cleen sweep of 10.3... now all that's left is my 1.25 PB and my humble little Compaq Pesario (which I have been reformatting today...)

    Slow and steady wins the race? :D
