    Anyone know of a good, free remote desktop app? That way I can check the other pc without having to switch my screen over. I'd like to be able to monitor while still on main rig.

    Yep, I actually posted in the folding forum regarding that I was in to help the team out. They have helped us a ton in the past so I figured it was only fair........Plus they are our fellow mates here on TPU. :)

    But as stated, I will also need all the setup info as well. I know that I actually have a F@H user name and all that, but heck, I have totally forgot how to get it going LOL.........Yea, yea, I know, ya can all give me shit about being old. LOLOL

    I tried installing Ubuntu 12.04 x64 LTS on my 1045T + Biostar A780L3B + GT 220 and it just hangs after a minute on the "install or use as live cd" screen. Any ideas? I want to convert some machines in my farm to it in hopes of possibly getting more PPD crunching and folding. Windows 7 works flawlessly on this machine so I don't know what the deal is.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    How are you installing it? If from cd you could have had a bad burn. I had to burn mine twice. The second time I remembered to lower the burn speed to 8x and it was good.

    Now that is not the desktop environment installed by default. Unity is the default. It has a launcher app deal on the left side of the screen for controlling everything. Kinda sucks if you ask me. I installed the cinnamon desktop and what you see is what you get with it. Much better. :toast:

    Hey guys I got a new i3 2120 today and it's crunching strong! This little chip is kickass!... I'm suprised at what this chip can do and how snappy it is... Graphics are good for a daily driver/cruncher. :toast: I was able to upgrade one of my older rigs for just a little over 200 bucks. chip/MB/4gb ram. The asus software was only able to overclock the cpu 3% and the GPU on the chip 30%! :toast: I'm hoping to get 3 more i7's or 3 more i5's next month. :toast:

    DVD (as much as it is a waste, I don't have any CDs). I think I'll try the PenDriveLinux USB drive maker and see if it makes a difference. I did burn it on DVD+R media with a crappy Philips 16x burner from 2005 so that may have done it. :(

    Fellows crunchers, i need to go away for 7-8 days. I have downclocked CPU's to prevent overheating and downloaded tasks for 8 days. If internet connection failed, i'll upload the results when i get back.

    I use Teamviewer at home with LAN connections enabled. I can connect to each machine by IP address instead of the ID number it assigns each machine. I also can connect to my main PC which is in a DMZ then connect from it to all my cruncher to do maintenance or checkups.
