    Man, that sounds too much like a math problem. "If Hertz9753 posts at 9:56PM PST that he has been working on a WU since 3:30PM CST and has 8 hours left to go, how long will he have worked on the WU?" :laugh: Good thing I don't have to deal with different days too.:twitch:

    Folding Forum makes no mention of a bonus, Pavlov. ;) You think you should get something extra just because it takes more time than what you're used to? :p j/k:laugh:

    I've managed to find a home for my folding computers at a friends apt where he doesn't have to pay for electricity so I'm setting them up after a much longer than expected hiatus. Is there a better client than the GPU2 for the nvidia 8 series cards? Also, what's the deal with getting nailed exclusively with the 494 pointers!?

    Edit: Also not a big deal but why does my sig say I have 5 mill instead of 6 million points?

    Welcome back! :toast:
    You want to run GPU2 on the 8 series cards - gets the most points.
    494's seem to be the only thing available for the last 6 days. (check my stats for proof)
    The badges skip some levels, I know it does at 3 million.

    I'm not 100% sure but these were the only badges I could find. If someone has another version then please post it.;)

    There is a 10million badge too, but I think other than that that is all of them.

    hmm a little searching says there is a 25million and 50million badge as well. I would check to see, but everyone with those numbers are 25k+ producers and have the Crazy badge instead :eek:

    Yeah I never noticed before since I had the crazy badge. Guess I could have paid more attention. I've been thinking about selling off my 8800GT's on ebay since they are still going for around $60 each and maybe pick up a 460GTX in their place. I'm trying not to spend much though since my better half lost her job so I'm covering mortgage and bills by myself. However, free power means I'm gonna have a new place to run my boxes 24/7. The poor dude has no idea how loud they are...

    Edit: Sorry to keep posting but do you still get more PPD with the CPU with VMware or has the SMP client improved for windows?

    SMP client has improved. You'll find it at the bottom of this page. I don't know of anyone still using vmware.

    NastyHabits is correct. The SMP2 client has been optimized for window, so no more VM needed. You can also cut the ram needed in half.

    Off Topic: BTW Nice upload today Gary!

    Thanks Buck. I'm hoping to hit 100K today. I've even enlisted my 4850 in the effort. Looks like another big day for TPU.

    Also, I'm glad to see Beertintedgoggles back in the game. :toast:

    hmm, My ppd's been dropping since I added that advmethod flag. I went from 15k+ down to 4k+. Is something wrong here?

    What WU's is it working on? I was getting 10K+ instead of 14K+ with my 460's, so 4K+ is way off. I've already taken the -adv flag off for now because it runs my GPU's too hot atm.

    It's looking the same as mine when it got it's first WU of the P6800 and P6811 kind. I'd let it run for a little longer and see if it changes. Other than what everone's already suggestd don't know what else you can do. :eek:

    Those 1298 units are supposed to really suck for ppd... but not that bad.

    your core clock isn't stable... shouldn't be getting all those spike in your load... it lowered your core clock to 405 is one problem... ya need to find a stable oc restart the client if your core doesn't come back up reboot and start low and work your way up... check it prob dropped your shader clock too
