    EDIT - yeah i just had to delete all the files and its gone from services. The reason i didnt do this before was that i couldnt find them all (all the files were scattered in my "downloads" folder :D)

    There should be an option in the program to tell it not to startup with windows or same thing -(not to run it as a service).

    If someone has "accept deadlineless wu's" set to yes in the advanced options it won't get a WU because the deadlineless WU's are'nt being distributed and have'nt for quite some time.

    Also if you leave the F@H screensaver open all the time it has a bug and sometimes can cause problems if the screensaver is left on the screen for a long time. F@H Screensaver=The one that shows the atoms being processed.

    That is odd though, because if you have the option to accept deadlineless WUs and there aren't any deadlineless WUs to give out you are supposed to get ones with deadlines.

    Ive noticed a .1 sec per frame drop in processing speed from 7.3 - 7.4 ati drivers!

    7.3 gave me 1.7secs per frame!!!

    7.4 gives me 1.8secs per frame???

    In 3DMark06 I get a slight performance improovement between the two drivers with 7.4, so im not too sure how this relates???

    Also I have not had anything else running to slow down the comp that might explain the drop...

    Thats worse :p

    You must have other stuff running in the background or your average never gets time to settle!

    If you think about it the faster the frame can be processed the faster the wu will complete :)

    You must be getting old ;) in theory you should be processing wu much faster than me, ive noticed youve been folding non stop recently!

    Ive added another 2 systems to my contribution, they are the gui console version though and the rigs arnt as powerful as mine, if I can call mine powerful :eek:

    If you beat me you beat me, I will have to come to terms with it ;) Aslong as we are both doing our part :toast: if only more would have our attitudes our team would be in the elite 100! Alot of people have only done 1 or 2 wu then given up or become disinterested which is a shame because its not a big deal to have it running when your just surfing or away... :D

    Har.



    My stuff at home is packed up. But when it is unpacked?




    2.9Ghz + X1800XT


    Plus another laptop to add and one more core on a laptop, and another 3.0Ghz Intel P4 system.




    I intend on rocking when I get my wiring and drywall done. I just need more time, more time.

    Glad to hear you have more hardware to add to the cause :toast:

    I am working on talking people into changing their dumbass screensavers for something worth while, my mam thought it was software to scan your comp for bank details :rolleyes:

    To see the always current team stats all you have to do is go to the first post in this thread and click the- "Link to stats:"

    This is the link I always use when checking the current team stats. Also you can just put that team stats webpage in your bookmarks after you click on it. Either way it is always up to date as long as you allow a few hours after finishing your WU for Stanford to update it.
