Hi all

just a quick update on the "mint folding team" progress.

We have just managed to get below the 1,600 world ranking mark. We are officially at 1,598 out of 161,511 teams world wide.

If anyone is reading about "Protein Folding" for the first time, go here to find out more.

http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download

It is a very good cause and well worth contributing your spare CPU cycles to.

I personally think that it is a much more worthwhile thing to be doing, rather than donating money to various charities which I have done all of my working life.

Best regards Keith

Depending on what processor you have will depend on the time it takes to complete any work unit.

You have completed 25% of your first unit. If you go to

http://fah-web.stanford.edu/psummary.html

you can see how many points your unit will give you when complete.

credulus,

welcome to the Mint folding team.

Our folding team is now 1488 out of 163762 teams worldwide.

This is a great achievement considering how small our protein folding team is. We are always looking for new members.

I joined your team in worldcommunitygrid.org as well... I have a PS3 as well but that one isn't "folding" as much as my desktop. I'll try to figure out tomorrow how I can join your team on my PS3.

Since you guys all use folding@home... I use BOINC manager. It works fine when I start it from a panel or shortcut or terminal, but when I check the box: execute during login, I always get an error message. Does everyone has this or only me?

Kind regards & happy folding,

Installed FAH on Helena, all started working with no probs.

Switched to my Gloria x64 install, followed exactly the same steps to install FAH, but I get:

[02:22:51] - Attempt #1 to get work failed, and no other work to do.


when I run it.

Is this a problem at my end, or did the Standford server go down in the 5 minutes it took me to get set up?

welcome aboard our protein folding team, it is very good to see you here.

With your added points we will be able to achieve our next milestone which is to break into the top 1200 teams. There are currently 170448 teams in the world so where we are now is a big achievement, and with the new contributers we should go ahead faster.

The higher up the ladder you go, the slower the progress will be, but it is more doable today than it was yesterday.

Ok, now its coming back to me....I have a dual core cpu (q6600)...its running all 4 cores at 100%. Is this normal? I cant see running this more than 15 minutes w/o some concern. I dont want to burn out my cpu. Please advise as I want to contribute but not at the cost of my cpu.

If you look at my specs, you will see that I to have a quad core Q6600 and it runs 24/7 using 100% of the CPU. It has been running like that for 3 1/2 years with not a single problem. It is set to stock 2.4 GHz and has at this moment in time temperatures of

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +38.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

coretemp-isa-0001
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1: +35.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

coretemp-isa-0002
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 2: +38.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

coretemp-isa-0003
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 3: +35.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

I have Kpowersave installed and set to "performance", as this gives the maximum folding benefit, but does stress your CPU to the full. You can set Kpowersave to be less aggressive by using the "dynamic" option.
