    Switched over my other rig to it the other day and the noticeable difference is (web config) when you open the URL is that it actually says Nehalem on the CPU type:D. It also has a thing now where you can back up every hour. Caution though, if folding -bigadv do not check both the -bigadv and -advmethods boxes because this will prevent you from getting the bigadv WU's. Check either one but not both;)

    I noticed the Nehalem also. I used the options in the image except for the Username and Team number! I copied the passkey so that sure helps. I guess you can uncheck the FAH Auto Startup and manually start FAH.

    Don't get used to it; I'll be back in a little while. I also found that the config on one of my cards got reset and it was folding for anon; lost about 5K/day for that.

    Anyway, congrats on pie and enjoy it while you can! :rockout:

    Unfortunately no, but I had noticed he went silent a few days ago. Hopefully everything is alright.


    I've noticed this before too, and I know for certain I'd set up the clients properly before hand. Luckily, HFM.net seems to be able to keep track of that, so its pretty easy for me to check for stray clients that get reset now.


    Pie!

    The milestones tonight show Oily stepping up and laying down an awesome number that demonstrates why he's in 4th place in overall production for the team. Congrats on your 14 millionth Oily, very nice work. :cool:

    I had to wait until someone asked. 777 PM'd me last week to say he was having issues with our forums and the way we moderate them. He also said he was starting his own team and was moving on. I wish him well in his future endeavors.

    Too bad for our team. He put up some good numbers from time to time.

    Congrats to Oily_17. Lovely string of zeros! :toast:

    14,000,000.. down, many more to come :D

    Hope things settle down here now.Been having some power issues that took out one of my switches, and I have a couple of rigs acting strange after our power outage/fluctuations.

    Also lost a -bigadv at 90% as well...damn those backups not working :banghead:

    If it makes you feel any better, I lost a completed bigadv WU that the stupid Stanford server won't upload and eventually got erased from my the file:banghead::shadedshu:mad:

    I was expecting things to be worse than they were, so I was not too mad...

    We were having power fluctuations all night and of course I was stuck in work, trying to keep things running there (waste of time).

    When I got home, only one pc was on and I feared the worst..:cry:

    Congrats Oily on another million.:toast:

    Every storm that comes through here causes my lights to flash:eek: but occasionally I loose power for a second and sometimes longer. I have a :respect:UPS on each of my bigadv rigs for that very reason. Of course a UPS can't solve those pesky Stanford servers!:wtf:

    Bogi, Oily, and msgclb,

    Thanks for the updates. Sorry you guys are having power/upload issues. But at least that helps explain why we are down on the team's daily totals.

    I too have some minor issues with one of my rigs (#4 in my sig). Thanks to HFM.net, I see that about 1 in 20 jobs fails. That one machine accounts for about 40% of my PPD, so I'm losing about 2%. Being the lazy slob that I am, 2% hasn't motivated me to figure it out yet. :eek:

    I wasn't around last night (I saved the Pie), but I swear I posted something up for Thursday. I know I wrote something about msgclb's table, though I guess I didn't hit 'Post'. :confused: :slap: It's no matter as I've got the pie saved for Thursday as well. :ohwell:

    Msg is correct, we're moving on up. As it currently stands we'll be reaching 38th in another 6 days, and 37th in about 3 weeks time. We're keeping it steady and racking up the points. Awesome job guys. :rockout:

    Now I see why hertz was coming to look for numbers. Considering that I was holding out on him, I'm surprised he didn't come breaking my kneecaps. :laugh:

    Hertz passes his 10 millionth point in the update, and stands alone in the milestone spotlight across all 3 days. Also appearing in the stats, we see Pepsi71 as he's lining up his final 100k to hit 1 million, while the first postings of a couple new members round out the update. Very nice work everyone, and congrats on a huge number hertz. :toast:

    Well, last night was a devastating blow to work units everywhere as Bogi unleashes a 200k salvo. If I'm not mistaken, he joins Msgclb as the second TPU member to have demonstrated such prowess. Unfortunately such a performance also makes me a bit envious, but leaves me with shaking my fist as my only recourse. One day Bogi, one day.

    The 11th managed to squeak past without any milestones but a few member did post updates, including one of our newest members who should be seeing a milestone shortly with his current output. Meanwhile, Nastyhabits and Mindweaver close in on their pursuit of millions.

    I would also like to suggest everyone go look at the WCG pie thread for awhile. With daily updates like that, it shouldn't be too hard to garner interest in distributed computing. :laugh:

    Bog's had over 250 million before. March 26th. http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1825231&postcount=7891

    :eek: Oops, Of course that's thousand. Wish I could strike through that word, but that does not seem to be available here. The post I referred to used 1/4 million, just got the two mixed up. Maybe I had too much politics on the brain.

    I stand corrected.

    But alas, Bogi, my fist has been shaking for many a month, and with an intensity and frequency that scares women at bars. Apparently breaking into random bouts of enraged fist shaking at the heavens makes you look like a crazy person.
