    Hah ! I am gunning for a top 5 position.
    It will take awhile, but hey, what else are those unused CPU cycles good for? :D

    @Steevo, is there a way to monitor cores running as services to see where they are at?

    New PC for me. Lightning claimed the disk and controller and for a stupid P4 1.4Ghz it isn't worth repairing. This was at work.



    I am thinking core two duo and a few gigs or RAM, a nice ATI card and some RAID 0.

    I'd like to thank all my family and my wonderful girlfriend for helping the dream come alive :D

    Ive had my eyes on 4th place for some time now, just got to push for 3rd, I dont think it will happen with Kreij on the case, but I will not be too dispondent with the efforts the top guys put in to help cure some really nasty diseases :)

    Unbeknownst to him, our Operations Manager is now helping the folding effort on his PD 3.2
    Let's give him a big round of applause for being so unwittingly helpful ;)

    Anyone know if there is anyway to check the progress of a core running as a service ?

    you can go to wherever you have the folding@home exe and there should be a text file called "unitinfo.txt" it will have the progress. you can also open the file "FAHlog.txt" and it will have the same info that you would see in the console if you were running it, just output to a text file.

    That's the spirit! :D

    It's fun being in a friendly competition when you know that even if you never get to the top that you are helping out.

    I ordered some better thermal goop and I am going to reseat my cooler to see if I can get my quad temps down so I can use it folding again. That SMP core seems to really rack up the points.

    Oh ... and it seems that while the CAD design team was in a meeting, one of their systems (P4 3.8) started folding. Odd, don't you think? ;)

    My new hardware is here. SMP client here I come.




    E6400 with a zerotherm BTF90. So I am hoping for 3.2Ghz or a bit better without noise.

    Today I ran it hard. 1.1Gb of physical RAM used and 19 programs open. SMP client is installed but not running yet. I think I will put it on a few more boxes. I have four that it will work on now. :D Plus I might get a lappy of my very own and a nice PDAish thing to use.


    I am waiting to see how well it performs unladen before I put it to work with F@H to see if there is a tangable difference.

    I have inched up into the #6 spot !! WooHoo.

    The overall TPU Team score is nearing the 1,000,000 mark!!

    Keep folding people, maybe we can overtake the HardOCP Team ... :D

    Two clients running the SMP client. 3.2Ghz and a 3.4Ghz both with 2Gb of RAM.



    In other news I got my Altec Lansing speakers on my work machine. And I am still here, but it is OK, the speakers are great and my whole music library is here too. Older pair but they rock. :D

    The TPU Folding Team has officially passed the one million mark
    (Score ... not WUs)

    I am not sure who completed the WU that pushed us past, but it doesn't matter as maybe all of our efforts will find a cure for something.

    Congrats and Thanks to all who are still folding. :toast:

    We are getting close to completing 5000 WUs too !! (Currently 4904)
