    I'm joining, I want to do something other than F@H for a while. Although I probably won't be able to contribute much with my weak little processor, well compared to Fit and CP that is.

    I might run this on my server...

    Few questions:
    1) Is the client multithreaded? I don't want to run 8 instances of the software like required with F@H.
    2) Does the client manage well with low priority? That is, can you play a game while it is running in the background without interrupting your frame rates?
    3) Is it x86-64 complaint? Both the computers I'd run it on are Windows XP/Server 2003 x64.

    I think that's all. If all three are yes, I will probably run it on my server and my Core i7 920 when it shows up.

    I have a question too. When my computer finishes (if it ever does!) a work unit or whatever it does, do I have to assign it another, or will it automatically do that? I only have 2 work units for it to do lined up in the timeline.

    I tried it and it said, "Installing on a domain controller is not currently supported." Their loss.

    I'll try it on my Core i7 when it is up and running later in the week. A real shame though. My server is running 24/7 at 0-1% CPU usage.

    I like this program. I never have any reason to turn it off, I can game with it on without a problem. Very nice program (much better then F@H) Lets get TPU to the top!

    Anyone know a way around the domain controller error? Maybe copy files from an install on a different computer?


    And yeah, it's not very hard to beat F@H clients. They're rubbish.

    I joined. It's more productive in using the hardware than the F@H-DeinoMP way.
