Hey it's pops Jefferson.
Go pops Go!!! I'll be about 10 spots behind you tomorrow night
P.S> Got my 2nd NZXT case- the Iceberg will be ready for you early next week
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.
Thanks man. Any big differences between them?
For all the crunchers that would like to participate in this year's Chimp Challenge (yes we are participating), here is the rundown:
You can also use Team Viewer
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
Logmein has some good stuff too.
++++1111 on Team viewer! The bad thing about UltraVNC and that crap is it is basically a back door for hackers.
Thanks Jon for the link.
Count us in!
Been playing with my new ex windows cruncher. For those that want to try Ubuntu but maybe afraid to leave there Windows environment. Here you go Unbuntu 12.04 with the cinnamon desktop.
Alrigh fellas, I need each and everyone of you to please visit this thread and look into it, the more than can help the better.
Chimp Challenge 2012
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.
I like I think I will try my s939 X2 rig out with this version!
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.
Um, yeah going to need that help buddy. To many clients and apps to chose from. Sensory overload.
I agree!!!! Jeez, if one followed all of the tutorials the contest would be over by the time I got started.
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. 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%! I'm hoping to get 3 more i7's or 3 more i5's next month.
Great job mindweaver! . How are you buddy?
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.
Great man, enjoy whatever it is your are doing.
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.
