    Doesn't your roommate get buggered by the presence of all those machines, assuming he literally shares a room with you and assuming the PCs make quite some noise together?

    Gotta say, Win2k8r2 makes a nice cruncher. File server, media server, and crunches at the same time! Glad I woke up to the server experience. Using Win7 on the same box just sucked, couldn't do what I wanted it to.

    What I meant to say is my mother goes home Thursday, cancer free. One more appointment, and she's back to Whitehorse. Thank god, and thank you all for folding and crunching!
    Edit: it works, don't stop!!!!!!

    Ok got the cruncher to work and setup bionic for the first time but I am getting this?? I have the correct time and date set, newest GPU drivers, newest x64 bit client, used the multi WU program.

    I've asked, and he says no. I've gone out of my way to make sure that I have quieter systems (slow fans), so the noise level isn't bad--particularly compared to the amount of ambient noise on the hall. When I first got it, the server was abysmal, but it was also quite easy to remedy that.
    That and he's spending the vast majority of his time with a lady friend on another hall, so he's in our room very rarely ;)
    What projects are those WUs? If you're running a GPU, what card is it? What happens if you reset the project?

    Still figuring out server... Created a 2nd account with admin privs for rdc access, but it would log off the server when I connected. Found out you have to tell the server to allow 2 concurrent connections, which I found out is the max. Now I can leave my rdc session in the taskbar, and monitor my crunching whenever I want! Was also worried rdc would interfere with boinc, but it seems to not be an issue with win2k8r2.

    Guy's, the F@H team could use your help. We should have passed Team Rage3D by now, but they have increased their production and are making us work for this. If you have any Nvidia cards that could be switched over to F@H, we would really appreciate it.

    Wow, that's quite a bump! :toast:
    Lemme see what I can do. I simply can't fold on the GTX470s--the noise output in particular is just unbelievable. But if I can dig up a spare power supply (I'm a bit worried about the one running in the the AMD X2 ATM) I can then get the GTX460 going.
    Alternatively, I could try out SMP on the Dual Quad system---any estimate of what I could get from that?

    Sorry Buck, I only have ATI cards in my rigs now:(
    I do still have the 2 GTX 580's, but they are up for sale.

    I turned my 4p and 3 gtx580's on last night, needed some heat in my basement with the outside temp hovering around 0 F at night. It should help a little.

    Yeah, I thought I'd have another day or 2 to hit 600k, but I've already broke it this morning... not sure where the extra ppd is coming from!
    Edit: and congrats to Kiex for 40 mill!!!!!!!!!!

    Looking for a six core i7, preferably an sb-e. Got an offer on one, but when I mentioned I may have to make payments on it, I was told to bugger off. Not nice. I've already sent 50 up, and will send another 200 or more in 30 days. I even told the guy I'd pay him in full before he shipped. Very rude.

    I guess its my turn for issues... weird thing happened today. :shadedshu

    I checked my PC before heading out, and the screen was all weird crazy lines and colors, sort of like what it looks like right before a BSOD while gaming (or something like that), except that it responded to input, meaning the screen changed when I moved the mouse, but the screen never resumed normal operation or recovered. Had to do a hard reset. I don't know whn it happened though... :confused:

    I was going to leave it shut down, but I resumed crunching before I left anyway, wanting to see if it would happen again. So I just got home a bit ago, and all was well and good, no weird crashes. Lets hope it's done having issues and that it keeps chugging a long peacefully. I'll post back later with further updates.

    Damn Manofthem, sounds like the video card overheated and started artifacting to be honest. Is it running GPU WU's? If so, I would download a video card tweaking program and keep an eye on the temps.

    It seems like I have issues when running for days and days on my main rig, but usually it's just problems shutting down/rebooting.

    What is causing the reboots?
