Ohhh, alright, well bummer , wow your post is #100 .
Give me until Saturday a.m., & then I'll switch from running SETI@Home to doing this
See title/subject line: You can BANK on it, that I will be on this team doing FOLDING@Home, by Saturday this upcoming weekend, sometime...
* Giving SETI@Home my last run this week.... seeing how far AMD CPU I have will "push its rac score" vs. the scores I know I obtained on my P4 3.2ghz Intel unit!
(Only thing still holding to SETI@Home is seeing that comparison happen here, as I mention here in this thread earlier!)
Sweet!! How many rigs will you have folding and are they going to be 24/7?
This one, in my signature, for starters... the other will be my Pentium 4 3.2ghz!
They'll be largely on, all-the-time most likely/as-per-usual.
(Evidence thereof @ this URL below)
* The "DoomsDay Machine & RUSH 2112"...
P.S.=> They ought to make a fine set of contributors imo, because they BOTH do great SETI scores, landing me in Microsoft's "top 13 (P4) -25 (AMD, so far)" of 1217 (they are #51 on chart of ALL teams as well, good company (Figureatively, as in "MS rocks", & literally in terms of the power of the machines (& legions of them @ that team)))... apk
Make this a official TPU thing and I will start adding my systems.
18 systems and over a terraflop of processor power a day. Average system spec 2.4Ghz Intel 512Mb RAM 14 hours of unloaded time and 25-70% load for the other.
Then my systems at home.
Why do you have such a crazy number of working systems?
Ok, I declare it official. Now get your beasts folding
dANG Steevo that kinda Knarly don't you think.. Great to have you aboard, now get folding!!!
Just didn't want to start all my systems an waste a few hours so we could be told to go away. Plus I have spent $$$ on coolers for a few systems so I could run this, and am needing to spend another $60 on a cooler for our server 3.8Ghz Intel machine, built by meh.
SO after I did all that the mods at the last place started becoming dicks. Essentially I have had too much bullshit handed my way this year. So unless we get official TPU-W1zzard backing hand over a few greenbacks so I don't waste my time and money, again.
Ummm.. ok. your pretty hard core dude, you know you could just run a few comps and not take it so serious and contrubet a little.
Did you add your main rig or are there others?
This isn't a charity, so we are not going to be handing out money to anyone. Key word to this thread is "Team", as in voluntary participation in a group.
I'm not asking for a handout. I have no problem supporting the team with a few, but if you guys want a full barrage of what I have got, I would like to see the "team" recognised by the site. Or a few greenbacks to buy the HS/F so I can fold with our server.
my main rig is not always on... i added the dell in my other room thats always on.. its a p4 1.7ghz beast , but it folds non stop, im only on it when i need to post or look at sumthin when my main rig is being assembled or disassembled modded w.e
humm it doesnt show me on it yet... wierd
Don't think it shows you until you've completed at least one wu.
oh ok well im at 910/1000 frames on my first W/U and its only been a day so woooo....
god i hate this computer i used to use it as a cs:s server but then i had to move it into my brothers room and put it on wireless internet... that doesnt do good stuff for ping ... so its now nonstop folding!
Yeah wireless is crap for a nonstop signal. Thats why i took my moms modem and gave her wirless becuase it doesn't cut out on her and she dosen't do anything besides E-Mail and surf the web. bah.
Folding seems like it takes forever sometimes. Chugging along on 2 folding projects at once because of hyper threading and i'm about 41 and 36% done each one. 20 million is a big number to step up to :S
Lol. I'm really pleased with my Belkin Wireless stuff now - haven't had one signal drop in the two months I've had it now and whenever I run ping tests I get 100% completion. The only problem is sometimes the ping can jump from 2-3ms to 700ms once every now and again. Still good for online gaming most of the time.
Be seeing you tomorrow sometime, joining team then & doing FAH instead of Seti@Home
Well, I told myself Saturday would be the mark where I transition away from doing SETI@Home into Folding@Home...
* Tomorrow's that day.
(I'll be seeing you all on the FAH team @ some point then!)
P.S.=> I did an experiment, to compare Intel CPU processing times vs. those of AMD for SETI@Home, by now ONLY running SETI on my AMD here.
And, that said?
It seems I can't break past #22 (of 1271 members total iirc) into the top 20 for "SETI@Home - Team Microsoft":
Mainly because I am only running 1 of my systems doing it of 2 possible here (I can't surpass guys with farms of machines doing it, like Steevo here is doing for THIS project for this team, big asset imo)...
My Intel rig got me up to 453 "rac" (recent avg. credit score) whereas my AMD now, even though it is FAR superior in Floating Point ops (via SETI benchmark), is falling short @ ~ 411 tops... this indicates a 10% difference so far, in favor of Intel CPU's using optimized clients, & yes, I am using a SSE3 optimized AMD client too!
Could not find such a recompile for specific cpu's for FAH though... @ least not so far.
My current AMD in my signature (fast as it is, & on MOST things, faster than my Intel P4 3.2ghz) is not outperforming my Intel older rig in it & I gave it PLENTY of time to show what it can do by way of comparison in SETI...
Again: Compiler code optimization for optimized clients is showing thru in favor of Intel.
Anyhow - I did my "experiment" & it is a fitting way to close off 7 years on/off doing SETI@Home & transitioning into FAH!
See you in the a.m. people... apk
Well, it now seems to work even with the firewall up so I am joining you guys folding at last! I'll probably also try to put my folks 2.2GHz Celeron on sometime because that seems to always be left on when it's not being used.
I added one and will be running config on the others tomorrow for a total of about 15.
I need to buy a new http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=373500
For the fucking server at work. I built it and it works a little too good for data serving, but runs too hot for my taste with the stock cooler with F@H. And my machine will not be joining the race, but I have a couple others here that will.
