    Here's the pics of my mess from yesterday and today setting up to fold.

    Sorry for low quality only had my cell phone :-/

    Yes I'm too cheap to get a droid... However it's on my list I just don't have too much use for it. Or maybe rather don't want to have the use for it...

    The laptops are a i3 2.66, core2 2.13 and core2 2.13, the towers are-
    4x i3 @ 3.1ghz, 1x i3 @ 4.2ghz, 3x i5 @ 3.4ghz, 1x i3 @ 2.93ghz, 1x i7 @ 3.7ghz

    Then there is-
    1x GTS450, 2x GT430, 1x HD5770

    that would be nice to see if fah did something like that. boinc has some nice tools interface etc, but i did it for a short while until i found one of the issues i was crunching for actually sold the research to a private company for money, and I went back to fah.

    Research has to be done in order for our computers to get the work load in the first place, someone has to fund it down the line. However that could just as easily happen to F@H, Stanford is not a non-profit in their own respect. But I'm willing to bet research is and always has been purchased from schools for "donations", may even still be kept public domain to look good. Still need the money to actually be able to utilize the information commercially.

    I figure we just speed up the process and I'm okay with that, faster better stuff comes out, faster commercial gain will fall, because the old tech always turns into the cheap tech.

    I agree niko but the project was canceled as they sold the research for about 20 million dollars to a PHARMACUTICAL company so they was not funding the research with that sale, but that is just one bad apple. there is many great wcg crunching projects.

    For those using GPU Tracker V2 that want to switch from -bigadv to SMP, do the following -

    Before the current -bigadv ends, go to Setup >> Configure and on the Tracker Settings tab place a check in the Oneunit Mode box for CPU/SMP, hit Apply >> Close
    (This will stop the client when it finishes the current WU)

    When the client finishes the current -bigadv WU and uploads the results then go to Setup >> Configure and remove the check you made in the Oneunit box above, also on the Client settings tab for SMP Settings remove the check in the box for Enable bigadv, hit Apply >> Close

    Then restart the CPU client

    That PSU looks like an Octopus attacking that rig:laugh:. I will admit, I've never seen a GTX460 in a e-machine before.

    just two seconds ago threw up an additional I7@4.2GHZ and a 4870 that add to the 4 other C2D's that I have going...A lil here and a lil there can make a world of difference.
    EDIT: Damn make that added to the other 3 C2D's looks like one of my off sites fell off and I have no way to make contact till Monday..
