    My 8350's are part time atm so I can fold too w/o hitting the power bill too hard- everything will be up to full power for the challenge or when I hit 20m points folding (whichever comes first) :cool:

    Part Time?
    What?

    Captain of which team?

    Please Cappy, come back!! The Folding number's will come as they will. Meanwhile, WE are struggling to stay in the top 20!!

    Why not Part Time the GPU's, and keep the Team you lead moving in the right direction?

    My bad, thought you were calling Arjai's posts movies :oops:

    Regarding the Matrix movies- the first one was great... the others were ok, definitely not on the same level as the first one.

    The first one was epic, and the other two were amazing but not epic. They got a bit more abstract which I think turned some people off.

    Not sure your analogy makes a logical connection to what I was implying. I was wondering why, as the Captain of the WCG TPU Team, you would announce to us that you were part-timing your cruncher's in order to achieve a goal, that you will hit anyways, in Folding. Adding that we were struggling to maintain a daily number above 3 mil. It may be , just, me but, missing 3 mil for two FOUR (!) consecutive days is a bit disconcerting. Sundays, I can excuse but, we should be able to maintain that number, easily!

    We need to, if we are going to keep ahead of the French team in the Formula Boinc standings. And Yes, I will keep pushing that until we win it!! AS WE SHOULD!!

    I've got 4 rigs running full output 24/7 with another 2 that happen to be part-time or reserve atm. We all do the best we can do with what we have. If I run everything at 100% then everything will need to be shut down until I catch up on my power bill.

    The point- run what you can, when you can, and every result is important...

    Having recently played space engineers, I don't understand why most science fiction ships have aerodynamic shapes. You can build in any shape, lets say a giant cube and it would work just fine. Essentially, these spaceships have too much form over function; I do not mean to say they lack function though.

    Uh, so they can travel in a atmosphere. I know the Galactica was able to land on a planet's surface, not sure about the others.

    Some of the shapes are for radiation shielding, safety- like a long ship (engines in the rear, passenger spaces in front) Others are for redundancy- symmetrical shapes may look aerodynamic when that isn't the function.

    Also, movie/sci-fi ships were made to resemble fighter planes and warships a lot of the time ;)


    This too
