    Internet is back up! Dumped what I had and going back for more. Everyone must remember to not start a -bigadv that they cannot finish before the end of the CC. Switch over to SMP2 for a strong finish.

    Anyone knows of something similar to fahtracker for Linux? I wanna get folder #2 up ASAP, my MSDNAA downloads of Windows died and the box already has Ubuntu 10.4LTS on it.

    P.S: Being an NBA addict in the middle east is a bitch. Went to bed at 1930, woke up at 0200, watching Miami vs. Boston now instead of sleeping. lol.

    Going to fire up another rig tonight (i7 920 @ 4GHz). Will I have enough time to do a bigadv before the end?

    If it is clocked 3.8 or higher and stable, you should have no problem finishing before the end of the CC.

    Same question here, just started a -bigadv on an i7 860 and it will finish in 2d 13hrs. Will it be within the time limit?

    ARGH. Folder #2 got owned by a Linux bug that affects multi-GPU setups. Trying to get Windows off MSDNAA again...

    Our team does not have many Linux Folders. Those who are use them for bigadv. GPU Folding on Linux is difficult. Try to get it on Windows.

    All of my -bigadv rigs take about 2d 13hrs to complete.

    My next -bigadv WU will finish on May 12 at about 11pm CST (9pm PDT).
    This rig should complete another WU on May 15 at about 12pm CST (10am PDT).
    That's 2 hours before the CC finishes.

    I'd say any rig at 3.8 or higher will be fine if started before May 12 at 11pm CST (9pm PDT).
    Buck do you see anything wrong with this.

    Your logic is sound. These -bigadv are amazingly accurate at predicting the completion of the work unit. I say go for it msgclb!

    It's just HFM.NET, the important thing are to have the FAH folder shared or as I do put them in the "pictures" folder that's always shared. Then just add a client, type in the name, mhz etc and point it to the FAH folder on the rig.

    If you want it to make html pages just check the type of pages you want in the preferences.

    I started using fahcore_16 with my HD 5830 and it looks like it's much better than SMP. My estimated PPD is now 6500 using GPU3 only. When I was using SMP, estimated PPD was only 2000. I don't really understand the significance of those numbers though.

    It takes about 25% of my CPU to feed GPU3. I may run SMP with my other three cores.
    Thanks. I'm nuts about stability so it takes me quite a while to find an overclock that I'm happy with.
