Hi 900i (and the other minter folding crew)
I have just got a 2.8 P4 folding at the moment, but once my Q6600 finshes its current smp WU, i will be adding it to the team :wink: should add a few points to the cause.. Also got a E4300 dual core folding box, again, once that finishes its current WU, it will be added to the team.
The E4300 will fold 24/7 smp client (as it keeps my spare room warm in the winter 8) ) the quad core is only running 12/14hrs a day.
Hope to be able to push the team up the ranks a bit :lol:

lol yeah Zyrix has been shooting up there, he'll pass me by today I guess. I might take my dual P3 system back with me to school and set it up as my server....I dunno, then we'd have that too.

The Q6600 has just finished one smp WU, and the '4300 has started its 24/7 smp run, in a weeks time i have to move house :? so will have no 'net access for a while, hence will have to stop folding, but i will be back :P
hope to see more faces in the team - when i started folding 2 or 3 years ago, you could do timeless WU's and i had rigs from P1 200mmx's upwards folding, alas, the timeless WU's (work unit) are no more :evil:
one of my rigs crashed partway through a WU and i only got awarded 3 points for that :shock: (it is running windows after all....)

I struggled to get it to run but had nothing but failure. People's help was at to high of a level for a dumb ass like me with no command line skill. The one time I seemed to get it going - it seemed to run all the time and never listend to the settings that I set. so i dumped it. The hassles of linux!

This is how I fold:-

Work rig is a core 2 duo, I am a Mechanical Design Engineer and run 3d Cad. F@H is running nearly all the time on both cores through the week regardless of what apps I am using. The only time I shut one core down is when I need to detail a drawing, then it gets a bit laggy if I don't. But I would say that 80% of the time I am folding on both cores with no ill effects. I run XP at work all week and use the windows command line client which I start manually on a Monday morning and shut down on a Friday afternoon for the W/E. I don't fold at home as I only have a laptop - they get bloody hot folding in my experience! :)


Why shut it down for the weekend? Is it such a small shop that they'll notice one computer running on weekends? Why not just lock the desktop and let 'er fold?

Hi all,

I have just managed to get Linux Mint Elyssa 64 bit installed (11-01-2009) and it is up and running. First impressions are very good.

I have been folding 24/7 for over a year now, and being as I have just installed mint, I have started folding for you.

Now working on my third unit and should (hopefully) be able to add some 25,000 points per week to the team.

Best regards Keith

900i,

it has always surprised me by the lack of interest concerning such a valuable initiative, not just here but in my previous two Linux flavours. Perhaps until you have lost someone to one of the major illnesses you are not too bothered about contributing.

I personally prefer to dedicate my computers time to this project rather than to Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence , as it seems to be a much more worthwhile cause.

It takes so little effort to set up and contribute, and does not interfere at all with any other work that you do on the computer. It is all pretty painless.

Lets hope that some more people will join us.

Best regards Keith

Just started folding again after an unintentional hiatus, but will keep going as much as possible.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.
