    well ive actually got a northwood p4 3.2 (15*214) and a wilmante ( i believe ) 2.6 (26*100) running under my name. the northwood is faster yes but the wimante sits 100% idle at all times due to being a file server on my home lan. so just cut my scores in half and that will cover ur comparo. btw i currently have ht disabled on this comp and everything seems more responcive...is there a reason?

    I want to write a messaging system that uses the AIM protocol like GAIM but uses less memory in assembler but I don't know how to so far :(

    Kenny, I think your system(s) will be perfect for my purposes of analysis...

    See subject-line/title above, & thanks again!

    (This'll help me determine if my P4 2nd system is worth putting into this, as I do not want to somehow "harm" the 'score' part of it & it's methods of determination by putting what MIGHT be a slower system than the one in my sig, into the mix here...)

    :)

    * @ W2hCYK: No "Wednesday Update" today (as is advertised, lol) to the first page listings (as is "Per-Usual/Tradition")?

    Man, I will NEVER catch you...

    See subject-line/title above...

    Steevo, there is probably NO way I am going to catch YOU... you've got a farm of rigs running there!

    :)

    * You're going to keep that "top spot"...

    APK

    P.S.=> BUT, I am going to overtake W2Cychk & imo, eventually KFlyer too, once I kick my 2nd system "into the mix" here, after I find out how Pentium 4 3.2ghz (or very close ones to that rating) perform via Kenny's joining... apk

    well I've bumped down to 1 system now @ 3GHz, pentium 4, not the strongest thing anymore. my sisters rig is not working with internet for some reason, and I'm going to give my laptop a break, because I dont want to run it @ 60c full load any more.. gotta improve cooling, and then the lappy is back up..

    doesnt matter the rank, just that you are actually contributing.

    I just like to make it a "race/competition"! That's just me...

    See subject-line/title above:

    Well, like the subject says - I like being "competitive"!

    :)

    * That's just simply because I have always looked @ these distributed projects as a measure of computing power, & one over the LONG haul (& the score is the MOST important part: Your system's "horsepower rating" more-or-less, is indicated by it!)...

    A side-benefit really, is you get a sort of benchmarking from it, aside from the real true goal of this process in aiding research vs. diseases...

    APK

    P.S.=> Plus, lol, I actually LIKE "tweaking/tuning" my OS & the application suite for this project itself as well... to gear it for this specifically (optimizing both areas mentioned in OS & the console app's process priority & affinity + commandline option switches)!

    Especially when running it overnight while I sleep!

    (Yes, imo, you can truly "get more" from it, via various things we discussed in this thread imo)... apk

    Didn't see If you guys had posted this before....but It's a nice little command guide for Folding........I'd join you fellas..but I'm commited to another team....we are at 1.7 million points now and climbing.

    Steevo....nice 21 day total bro.....I got 23k once In 25days with 6 rigs. ;)

    If you have got the Rig.....It's all In the command lines.

    Had to shut down two here at home as it was getting to hot for this penguin. But depending on what the boss did I might be adding a couple more p4 2.0Ghz machines. And I have RAM here to put in to get out of the 256MB that they are coming with. :D

    I'm beginning to add more systems again, I got my 2nd 1.6GHz banias, so I can replace the cpu in my laptop if it craps out, but now I have to get it to run on windows vista because i'm now running vista beta 2 on that 24/7

    Well, then as far as counts are concerned? I won't catch you - I cannot compete w/ folks that run farms of systems (you top 3 guys just have more systems doing it than I do, along w/ mustang_man & he's "hot on my tail" too).

    I was thinking of hooking up my SQLServer 2005/IIS 6.x server rig to do it, but imo, I don't think it will aid me in the "SCORE" area... & in fact, MAY hinder me there!

    (That, to me, is the MOST important part... the score - to me, it is literally a benchmark measure of a system's performance, in REAL-WORLD long-term conditions (best type of test there is imo)).

    :)

    * Anyhow - you go & do that (adding more rigs to your mix)? I'll NEVER catch you most likely...

    APK

    P.S.=> What I am MOSTLY waiting for though & VERY curious about? Is what Intel's CONROE chip family & systems oriented around that CPU type will perform like on this project...

    I am fairly sure guys here will nab those CPU's too, & by next winter @ the latest (as this largely draws "PC Performance Fiends" to its ranks on the forums here)... & it will be interesting to see & imo, those CPU's will do better than our current crop on this project as well! apk

    Actually, i only have one rig up now. I see you have 67 WU's done, and I have 47. :) my points = +++ :D

    My laptop is out, it runs vista, and i cant get wireless on it anymore. :(

    Sisters desktop = out because the wireless card crapped

    so yea, back down to one intel @ 3.15GHz. :(

    Memory or CPU Glitch here, imo, & F@H in a way?

    F@H showed me I was PUSHING TOO HARD!

    That is because I pulled MASSIVE overclock yesterday w/ Ketxxx, POGE, Tatty One, & K9JY (did so to see how far I could in this heatwave we're having worldwide, to find max amt. stable in hot weather of summer, so I can push hard in Winter, etc.)...

    See here:

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=14546&page=8

    * I suspect memory errs due to o/c, one instance of my F@H "flipped out" & just hung up... probably cause of it, & it screwed my F@H score, hard... spitting back bogus results no doubt & "blasting my credit" to crap!

    LOL, oh well, what can you do?

    Nobody "twisted my arm" to o/c THAT far... I corrected for it, but we still have to see if my O/C is making my RAM funny.

    Weird thing is?

    Rest of system FLIES (even gaming 1 hr++ w/ Quake 4 SMP &/or Doom III) & was stable, & @ the highest O/C I pulled yesterday, for HOURS!

    APK

    P.S.=> F@H glitch, or O/C memory error? YOU DECIDE, lol... Before that? I was @ 45 units... one behind you!

    Heh, there is NO way, or NO overclock, that would make me put out 20 units in less than 12 hours... has to be o/c problem indicated, hence, why I backed down A LOT on it! apk

    there is a mode that says "Use this if you overclock, and your CPU has frequent errors" Idk what it does, i forgot. lol @ the glitch though.. its better than solaris's problem though.. oh poor solaris, 14pts, 7WU's, hahahaa

    I think it's one I am using for performance (forceasm)... probably NOT for o/c's of massive magnitude & all that!

    Believe you me, I was TICKED OFF, I was only 1 unit behind you... no joke! My guess is, since its screen was literally BLANK (in console mode/DOS/tty no less, I use that one) it was trying to send data & kept trying & trying & trying ad-infinitum, until I stopped it!

    Blew my avg. score to heck!

    (Anyhow, iirc on that switch? Heh, It warns against using it IF you o/c, but so far today? It's been ok... so far!)

    LOL!

    Yea, he's not putting out as fast as others... I wondered about that too, but he may not have some "powerhorse" of a machine either!

    (And, that's ok too)

    APK

    P.S.=> Anyhow, after that? My score's probably SHOT... oh well, so that said? I'll probably end up tossing in my P4 3.2ghz into the mix here after all, & actually shoot out more units, but have crappy SCORE... lol, that's already a done did deal! apk

    Yea, it's cool... lol, & I am having some fun @ it, learning as I go (overclocks & all adversely nuking my score)!

    The competition part for me is spurring me on to try to get more out of the program itself, my OS which it rides on, & also @ a hardware level thru my teachers here on that account (& believe me, I have learned here on the hardware-end which I let "go slack" for years due to concentrating more on the software-side)

    E.G.-> Learning here for me, from folks like Ketxxx, POGE, Tatty One & others (Jimmy 2004 says I know it all, & I don't... that all proves it. Can I get stronger here? I can assure you, with certainty, I have albeit w/ help, the RIGHT help imo, the results now show (2.4ghz -> near 2.8ghz)? I couldn't have done it myself imo)...

    That's what I get outta competing!

    The impetus to do better & learn more (no work or effort's EVER wasted in my book, & me learning how to o/c better is a fruit of that labor & good review no doubt for my instructors noted above).

    It benefits this team, & us imo @ least, individually & yes, others reading about o/c'ing to get more outta their rigs they have... e.g.-> demonbrawn's out to hype up his rig, much like mine... he gains @ our study & work on MY system in the o/c I did, & said so.

    Plus, of course, this project helps a great cause & acts as a system benchmark over a long haul imo @ least... the SCORE part especially. Dual bonus!

    ANYHOW... there tis!

    APK

    P.S.=> Others are joining now, rightfully so imo - it is a good cause, we have great systems here on this forums, so it makes sense (interesting & you can learn things - no work, or study, is a waste imo... not in THIS field)... apk

    Stats update, and laptop now running 24/7, chilling under my bed, haha..

    In 4 months, I'll be running a Conroe E6600 with 4gb ram, that should be fun! No way I'm going to catch steevo though.

    So now I have 3 systems again, 24/7. Slowly growing.

    And check our rank! 2500~ out of ~45,000 people! We're getting there guys!!! Lets aim for <1000 in a month and a half. September 15th, lets go for that as a goal!
