    Hi and welcome, Bruce :toast:

    You can join the TPU folding team by using Team number 50711 in the configuration of your folding clients.
    You will keep your points when you switch teams, just not sure if they switch over to the team or not...maybe someone else could tell you.

    To reconfigure your Folding clients go to it's shortcut and right-click and choose Properties.
    Then you can add the -config flag to the end of the Target path.
    Then restart the client, it will run through setup again, and enter 50711 for the Team Number, keep the rest of your settings the same.

    When you have finished the configuration and the client restarts you can remove the -config flag from the shortcut.

    The points will not switch over from one team to another:)

    What kind of PPD are you putting out? Also what is you current team/user name? I could fold under your new user name for TPU to replace the points, but I need confirmation of a few things.

    I’m taking my ASUS M3A76-CM that’s folding a 9800 GTX+ at around 6777 PPD and putting it in my junk box. The good news is that I’m replacing it with a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P. When I get this system running I hope to be running two 9800 GTX+ cards. This switchover starts now and hope to have it running later tonight!:)

    Let me be the first to congratulate Bogmali. The Bogster hit 12,000,000 today! :toast:

    Me, I got my 500,000. I hesitate to mention it in the same post. :respect:

    Congratulations, 500,000 is a lot of points :respect::respect:

    Same to you Bogmali, 12 million in F@H is incredible considering your contribution to WCG as well! :toast:

    o well so what if i loose a few points... besides that's not what its all about anyway right? although it did take a while to get that many lol. i dunno why my PPD is so low now... my system is still the same as when i started. except for the new 500gb hard drive.... the PPD chart just seems soo random.

    yea... i lost em all...

    Msgclb upgrading more? And here I though that I'd be able to catch him once I completed my 2 rigs. I guess I still have an i7 920 and some other parts sitting around waiting to be built, but I kind of wanted to see what my electricity bill turned out to be with my 2 monstrosities running as is. Though, Bogi gets further and further away while mx500 still stands to pass me in a week. I just finished upgrading and I already need more PPD.

    Meanwhile as a team we just crested 900k for the 5th, and are showing 923k in the past 24 hours as of the time of this post. It would seem our competition is picking up, as HWC bested us by 86k yesterday. They've gotten a slew of new members, as well as returning members who are putting in the requirement for the F@H contest. They'll likely break 1 million tomorrow. We've still got a nice cushion between us and them, but they could put the heat on us before we surpass them yet again.

    11 2009-11-05 3dsage 25,000


    I count 6 milestones displayed, 7 if you look close enough. See Danish Devil happened to jump straight to 20k and skip straight over 10k. So with that said, we'll start with Danish Devil whose just grabbed 10k today, will grab 25k tomorrow and will likely grab 100k in around 4 days time. A true testament to how powerful 2 GTX 285s can be. Past that we have 3dsage and DrPepper both earning 25k, and continuing to push forward. Next we have Breit earning a folding badge with his 100k milestone, which took just under 1 month to achieve.

    *Wall of text preventative measure*

    Nastyhabits posts up 500k today, and is halfway down the road to a folding badge upgrade. Hertz9753 came to us only 2 months ago, and proceeded to fold like a madman for our team. In those two short months he's accumulated 2 million points for TPU alone. And last on our list is someone whose really cranked it up in the past few months. Bogmali has ramped up from great numbers in the 40ks to numbers in the 140ks in what was probably only a 2-3 month period. He currently holds team lead by 15k points, and talks of adding more cards frequently. This man scares me every time I stop thinking about how much I envy his hardware collection.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to take a huge hit in PPD over the weekend. :twitch: I have 3 machines at work that I fold & crunch on with a 9800GX2 and 9 threads. They are shutting off the power starting this evening to do major electrical rewiring; so, all 3 machines will be down for about 60+ hours. :eek:

    Sorry to hear that, that's a lot of work lost, but it's still awesome you can have all those rigs where you work and get free electricity :laugh:

    Thanks Bogi, didn't know that.I always thought the points were tied to the user and not the team.You learn something new every day your not at school...

    If you like I can switch my rigs over to replace your points for our team.Just give me your Folding name for TPU.

    Thanks Buck for the offer, if Bruce wants I will switch mine over as well, and he should be back up to speed pretty soon :toast:

    Thanks El Fiendo. Yes I tried to upgrade but ran into problems setting up a 2nd GPU last night so I installed both the F&H & WCG clients and went to bed.

    Original help post

    Followup help post


    ** thebluebumblebee **
    I don't have another monitor handy.

    This is my current system:
    GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P
    AMD Athlon II X4 630
    Team Xtreem 2GB DDR2 800
    OCZ GameXStream 700W PSU
    EVGA 9800 GTX+
    Windows 7 RC

    Currently this system is now folding one card & crunching 4 cores. Haven't decided what to do next.:banghead:

    Msgclb-I doubt that it is the PSU since it has enough wattage. Try this though, Power up the rig. When screen goes blank unplug your DVI/VGA out put cable and start playing with it by plugging it in the other DVI outputs to see if the video defaulted to the second card. If that is not it then yeah I would check that PSU.

    my folding name is xBruce88x, you don't have to replace the points but if you want to it'd be nice to have a score on the board lol... my comp crashed overnight so i didn't get any points overnight :( but i fixed the problem... (i hate the first gen sata cables, they come loose too easy)

    OK, changed a couple of my mine over to your username.Hopefully you should see some points on the board tonight.

    And also, welcome to the Team :toast:

    Today shows us hitting our prior days best of 900k. No offense guys but we can't find our wall yet. I mean the Canuckians have been getting all smug and vocal over very little of a victory, and I fear it will only get worse. You too can help fight this travesty of all things good and wholesome. All you need to do is join up at your local TPU barracks and tell them you're ready to give your life unequivocally for us. Ignore what that part sounds like though, its totally legit.

    Having mentioned the Canucks, I suppose I should mention that they pushed out 1.01 million yesterday. The also look like they have a little more left in them. I have no doubt we will prevail, the greater species always triumphs over the weaker after all. I just wish we'd get just a bit more strength in numbers so we can crush them ahead of schedule.

    Just when you think its safe to pop your head up, all the new teammates band together to unleash a flurry of milestones upon this page. Tonight is no different, as PowderedSugar, Tyson9earzz and Weer all pass 10k, and earn themselves their first milestones. Bravesoul puts up his second milestone with his completion of 25000 points. Meanwhile Danish Devil is up to the same tricks as last night, and has skipped right over 25k. I've still got the bet that you hit 100k in 3 days, and I'm liking my odds. In total thats 5 tonight, and already I see a few queuing up for tomorrow. :toast:

    Edit: I missed a 10k yesterday, and I'll be posting up a 25k later tonight for this same user. But Barron whose just joined our team has done just over 29000 points in 1 days time. Instead of both a 10k and 25k tonight, I'll amend this one so that its spread out a bit. Congrats Barron, and very nice numbers.
