    I'm guessing you don't like going wireless. If it's just a matter of the pc not having wireless ethernet, wireless adapters are getting so cheap they'll probably start showing up in happy meals.

    Personally I don't do wireless unless it's absolutely necessary. I'll run an extra hundred feet of cable before I turn the transmitter on.

    Really? How come? I run all of my rigs over wireless and I must say that it works quite well & it's very convenient

    I'm paranoid about security but aside from that, I dl a lot from usenet and wireless is never as good or fast as hardwired - especially once I install my gigabit router and switches.

    Ah, where we live, no need to worry about people 'borrowing' our net connection. And for what I do, it's fast enough, if I want really fast speeds, I use my USB HDD :)

    In theory (don't know about in practice yet) a gigabit connection should be at least 2-3 times faster than USB. But I get what you're saying. I like to have at least one high capacity flash card around for those purposes. Right now the biggest one I have is 16gig and that seems more than adequate for most purposes. Before I had an HTPC, I was doing the sneaker-net dance with a media player - loading stuff on to it from the main rig and then running it up to the tv. Now I just make sure I do the dl's in place I plan to use them. 100baseT ethernet is mostly adequate for everything else - you just have to be a little patient. If the upper end of wireless throughput is still in the 54mbps range, that should be fine for most purposes too. My cable connection is only 15mbps anyway, so it's not like i really get anything more on that end. It just opens up some bandwidth for anything I want to do internally.

    I would rather run a wire because I can probably get the wire for free from a friend who has the cable and ends. But I last saw that over a year ago, not sure if he still has the stuff. I gotta check tomorrow with him.
  8. twilyth Guest

    Free is good. Is it cat 5, cat 6? Get the good stuff because gigabit routers and switches are getting cheaper all of the time - not dirt cheap yet, but getting there. I think you'll want cat 6 or maybe cat 5e - it's been a while so I'd have to check.

    Sounds good...keep us posted :toast:

    I'd probably just move over the computer, get a big buffer, and then put it back, but to each their own :toast:

    If I can't resolve nothing by today then I guess I will do that tomorrow. I gotta get it going this weekend though.

    Indeed, not bad at all. Good job everyone. :toast:

    EDIT: Just noticed I am having a fairly decent day, about 600 points over my daily average. Recently my daily average has taken a hit since I am now folding on the same rig with a ATI card. Average is down almost 1k :(

    Did you set the system Environment variables for folding with an ATI card to lower cpu usage?
