    I've installed a vm running on all 4 cores of my Athlon II 620 that's generating ~4600 PPD. I'll set up my Q9550 tonight for another 5-6K. :nutkick:

    BTW: I spent a couple of extra hours setting up until I noticed that Fah Spy was mistakenly reporting a PPD of about 720 because it did not recognize the project and could not update it's project database. :banghead:

    Looking at the stats for both teams, our main problem is the # of active folders: them - 120, us - 72. :cry: We need to get some of our 406 inactive members folding again! We have a lot of depth, we just need for them to step up and help us out. :nutkick:

    I lost a couple because I restarted the clients improperly :banghead:

    One was at ~35%, the other at ~86%

    Be sure to read the guides fully. 3.0Charlie posted a command to shut down the client properly that I should have used:
    Let this be a lesson for you kids; don't do drugs, and restart your vm rigs properly.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that :ohwell:
    Although I know every -bigadv WU gets you ~45-55K points against us, I don't care about the points, and who comes out on top is only mildly important to me, what matters most is that the work is done for Stanford.

    If I was given the choice of completely giving up folding or switching to HCF, I would definitely switch to HCF (even though I want TPU to come out ahead :D) because what I care most about is doing the research, not the points

    I agree. You are a great bunch of guys and a small group folding your butts off. I would fold for you guys anytime. (but I won't hahaha)

    It's been a pleasure Folding with you folks, you are more than welcome to stop by our forums and talk Folding or whatever you like.

    Be seeing you real soon...

    Well said. I agree completely. The rivalry with HCF and hanging out with all you guys in this forum is a bonus that makes it fun.

    Please don't think for a moment that my altruistic statements will in any way deter me from tending the ammo belts for EF's 50 caliber. If bodies must be strewn about in abundance, let it be for science. :toast:

    I'm unfortunately going to be down my ~5k PPD from tomorrow morning until early January, which isn't going to help us any :( :ohwell:

    What will help us is i should (and hope)be getting the GTX260 and Velvet now has a 8800GTS folding along with his 2 8800GTs+ GT220. So with his help i am bringing this to the table:
    5 8800GT's
    2 8800GTS
    1 GT220
    1 GTX260(coming soon)

    possibly i will be getting another GPU depending on how much i spend on the PSU for my rig.

    Awesome, that'll give you some pretty sweet PPD!
    Definitely should make up for the loss of an 8800GT for ~8 days :eek:

    Mmaakk is currently a prisoner of war in Borneo. We're negotiating release treaties but it will take time. Mx500torid is probably just lazy though.


    Or sending his cards in for an RMA, I can't remember which.

    Mmaakk is currently in hiding and doesn't want to show his mug here because I leapfrogged his arse for the #2 spot:D (We'll see if this gets his attention). As far Mxtorid:confused: no clue:(

    mx500torid did say something about his status! LINK

    :(Let's have a little respect for someone who dropped 7 million points on us in about 9 months.:eek:

    Yep, mx500torid & mmaakk threw quite a few points up on the board for us. We all know how hard it is to justify the electric use. We are very grateful for their donations.:respect:

    I agree, what's with all this huggy huggy tongue-in-ear crap?? Give me canuck death or give me... um, death? :rolleyes:

    /LAMEHUMOR



    Ugh... the electric bill. The crazy thing is... I could find a way to rationalize building a folding farm... but I just can't seem to come to terms with the demon-spawn utility bill it would summon.

    Uh oh. Insulting other members can earn you an infraction:roll: I may end up fighting this HWC battle on several fronts.;)

    Serious note: Chris, do you have guys running i7 860's @ HWC and if so, is the dual channel memory bandwidth limiting PPD?
