    I got to cute and got misunderstood!:D

    Although I was complementing Molly (I didn't know her name), I wanted to know how you all got those Speedtest images like yours above.

    For the record, hertz that is a snazzy app.:)

    when you complete a test it'll ask you if you want to share your result

    at the top of the test you'll see the result directly below that you'll see the close button and just below that you'll see a text box with 2 tabs on it tab 1 says URL and tab 2 says Forum click on that one click the copy button

    now to add it to here click the little earth+chain link just after the text color button and paste the url you copied from speedtest.net click ok and post reply it'll show up as the same as what I have in my post

    If you were getting HUGE signal loss you wouldn't be getting the sync speeds you are... can you do an tracert to one of the F@H servers and post up the results

    I believe that my cable modem has a problem or Cox does.
    Occasionally the Online light will start flashing usually for less than a minute.

    The manual says when the light is off then my internet connection has failed but when it is flashing then the modem is scanning for configuration parameters.

    I know Cox and probably all ISPs are upgrading to IPv6 and my modem is an old IPv4. That in itself shouldn't be a problem but sooner or later I'm betting I'll have to get a new modem.

    Many years ago when I signed up with Cox I had a choice of renting or buying the cable modem and I choose to buy it.

    ive some advice for anyone trying to use hybrid ati + nv in the same system ,its not worth the grief
    if i fold on cpu + 5870 it ocasionally uses the 240 as the 5870 but is much slower, i didnt notice the last 24 hrs the git, 240's goin in a second dual core il be putting to task later, i know its not much but its a start and may do reasonable ppd ish

    I switched to smp on one of my i7's about a half hour ago. I could't get a -bigadv wu for over an hour.

    Got some more painting on the new house (about another week) and then give us about 7 or 8 days to move in.
    I will then have everything up and running (folding) again.

    There is currently a shortage of -bigadv WUs so if you're not getting anything switch to -advmethods until they've sorted out the issues.

    I have been waiting all day for a -bigadv, even re-installed app. This explains the problem. Thanks Bog.

    Edit: I was just about to switch to -advmethods when I saw it just started a 6901 WU:toast:

    My output is going to drop by about 10k. I upgraded my main machine by replacing the Athlon II x2 240 @ 3.5GHz with a Phenom II 550 @ 3750MHz (a marginal benefit for WCG), and the GTX260 with a Radeon 5870. I then took the 8800GTS and 8800GT out of my server, and replaced it with the GTX260. In short, the 8800GTS and 8800GT are gone, but the GTX260 gets to run uninterrupted now... so a net loss of about 10k.

    This apparent correction goes back a long ways. Xbonez got points and he has not Folded since the beginning of May.

    I would rec not changing over to the new 275.33 drivers for Folding. Im looking at a 3k drop in PPD right now. Ill see how it does after it finishes this WU and see if its just a bad WU.

    As of late version 266.58 is the most stable driver suite especially for GTX460's ;)

    If you are running a dedicated folding rig, then you might save some money by using Linux on it.

    I also see an increase in PPD when running the -bigadv client on Ubuntu compared to windows.

    Jumped the gun, it was indeed just that one WU :eek:. My 580 is back at 18.3kPPD on the 6806 WUs.
