    I had a little bit of spare time so i (HOPEFULLY)put my ubuntu machine folding for this.
    It says it is any how:confused:.
    I used some sudo apt get origami crap,and it says it's folding for team 50711-chimpowerup.Which looks ok to me. Only thing is,its showing the utilization of the four cpu cores,but does'nt say anything about the GPU???
    The machine has a 9600 gt in it.How can i make it use the GPU also???? Or will it automatically do so???

    Going to bring online a 9600GT and a 8600GT later today, hopefully. Why has no one warned me this is addictive? I am thinking of grabbing a deliciously cheap single-slot GT430.

    This is the 1st year of the Handicap points system. In the past, it has been very hard to compete point for point with the likes of EVGA and OCN. Last year, I believe we placed 8th out of 9.

    Yeah this shows dedication and team effort rather than just raw power like last years competition. Congrats on the 2nd place move, let's keep it that way! :rockout:

    I'm out of cards, but I'll start an SMP client on a bunch of i3's and i5's today and continue a few more tomorrow... With any luck it will help.

    Chimp Challenge 2011 End of Day 7 Stats

    News alert: ChimPowerUp takes #2 at end of day 7.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    OCN is like a very large hive of bees. There's thousands of them. Over the last few hours we have stuck our hand into their hive and pulled out some of their honey.
    The question is how long can we keep our hand in their honey pot before we're forced out. By the way I understand our chimp loves honey! :toast:

    In the last 12 hours ChimPowerUp has held the #2 position several times but OCNChimpin doesn't seem willing to let us keep it without a fight. :rockout:

    In the last 24 hours we have continued to increase our active clients from 333 to 389. :respect:

    Holy heck, a GTX285 is a lot of PPD.

    Edit: ~22,000PPD on my end now, at least for the next 24 hours or so.

    What a surprise you'd get if you turned one of those GTX470's on for Folding.:D

    I don't know brotha? what client are you using? I wonder if you can install v7 win using wine? to access the gpu's easier? I've not folded using linux.. but surely they have a linux client to use your GPU. If i get some time i'll try to get one of my linux boxes folding.. I just need to upgrade the video card in one of them.. :confused:

    EDIT: yea you need to use wine. here is something i found that may help.

    wow mydog when you drop those wu's that will be about 5 chimp points and my big adv's are timed to drop and pick up more just in time for 2 updates before the end of the CC.

    nice work everyone we could close a big gap on hwc with all the new clients online, but unsure if there is enough to overtake them as chimp ppd is still higher on their side.

    fold on
