Sigh, my Chimp Challenge surprise is stuck in an endless boot cycle and never I got around to sleeping last night. As a result, work today is slow. It could be the 3x Classified (which apparently has issues), could be the Ultra X3 1k PSU (which seemed to be highly recommended), or it could be some other of the parts that are all new and untested. This stuff is depressing. :banghead:


The milestones last night showcased two members just starting out for the team, and also had a returning millionaire displaying his recent conquests. Oily posted up a whopping 15 million, and as such he's earned his congratulations and then some. Very nice work, Oily.
First congratulations to Oily_17 for putting up a huge number. Well done indeed! :toast:

Second, I hear you on the frustration bit El Fiendo. I just got my first data phone. Motorola backflip (android phone). I darn near threw it out the window. How in the world the average person could ever use one of these things is beyond me.

Eh, I'm just cranky because more of my junk is giving me issues as of late. At least I've got a list of things to try, and the BIOS battery is currently sitting out and beside the machine so we'll see if an 'extended BIOS clear' did any good.

As for your phone, it looks sexy at least. If you don't mind, give a quick run down of its failings as I'm searching for a new phone myself (here or PM works).

El Fiendo I hope your luck has changed and you'll have some good news tomorrow.

I'm currently testing a Ubuntu 64-bit running a SMP v6.29 on an AMD X4 620. If this works then I'll have 4 more cores running the A3 core.

How generous of you Bogi, but my equipment had a change of heart. I'm still not sure what happened as it wouldn't work when I got home at first, and then started up after I changed what wall socket it was plugged in to. I tried it again afterward in the first wall socket, and it worked there too. :confused: Ah well, now I just need to piss around in BIOS. My other i7 is starting to feel the heat though, and its not even close to summer. I think I'll have to aggressively pursue me some water parts for it too.

2 weeks until the contest guys, anyone want to help me raid a couple of online retailer's warehouses?

The milestones evaded the spot lights last night, but we do see a few members highlighted some in between progress to their next milestone. It would seem Adhptechnical is closing in on his first milestone at 10k, while Hat has his sights on that elusive 1 million points. Good luck gentleman. :toast:

Biggest thing wrong with my motorola backflip is it comes from AT&T. They suck. Sent me a phone and forgot to change my plan. Racked up $200 in data fees in less than 12 hours. (They fixed that).

Second thing - it violates the "spirit" of the android operating system. It's locked down. You can't add apps that don't come from AT&T's "market". There are workarounds, but they are complex and arduous. If you want more info about the lockdown see this post.

Bottom line, if you want an Android phone, get it from Verizon. Also, wait just a bit, a new phone with twice the horsepower is coming on April 29th. (1 GHz processor vs. 500 MHz).

Other than that, I really like the phone. It has a great keyboard, with bumps instead of being perfectly flat. The screen is clear and sharp. I can connect to my wireless router, or any WiFi hotspot for superfast downloads. I can also "tether" my laptop to it so when visiting my mom, I won't have to resort to a modem or driving to a coffee shop, drinking some awful expensive coffee just to poach a wireless connection.

If I had to do again, I'd get a Droid from Verizon. A little bigger (a minus for me), but not locked down.

Meh, don't worry about it, somebody will cook a custom ROM for it to give a fully functioning Android phone.

Speaking of Android, somebody just ported it to the iPhone 2G. When it gets ported to the 3GS, I may switch.

Ah heh, I'll be crossing another off the list then mainly wanting the upgraded processor, but also to avoid the lock. I'd rather my phone be without having to mod or 'jail break', though I suppose modding and messing it isn't too different from how I use my PCs.

Sorry for the delay guys. April is a pretty rough month for me and my time, and in classic fashion I've applied my time a little too liberally. I will likely be ready for the chimp challenge, I just need to piss around with stability now it seems. However if you're still having trouble and would like to participate, there are many resources available. The folks over at HWC have posted up some videos to help set up FahMon and HFM.net that augment their guide. Follow this link to see what wisdom they have to impart. Our Tech assistance thread can cover general issues, and can be found here. Also, as Buck pointed out there was mention of GPU3 over the weekend. It'll be interesting to see if there are any changes to production on current work units, as well as the overall production of the upcoming work units themselves.

The amalgamated milestone list shows us 4 milestones being posted up, 3 of which were additional millions posted by millionaires. For starters, we had PCPraiser vaulting over100,000 for his milestone, which also qualifies him for his Folding Badge on the forums. Next we see NastyHabits and thebluebumblebee as they both smash 4 million points with the latter beating Nasty to the punch by 1 days time. Nasty got his vengeance by overtaking him within the day. Meanwhile, hertz9753 stood back and shelled the proceedings with a daunting 11 million total. Congrats all, and very nice work. '

Of all the things to miss, I happened to miss a fairly sizable achievement. As of 4 days ago, Techpowerup collectively surpassed 300,000,000 points. On top of that, in another 10 hours we'll have surpassed yet another team in our F@H conquest. :toast:

Last night's milestones saw one member stand triumphant over a rather daunting and rare point total. Newtekie earned himself his 10 millionth point, making him the 7th TPU member and around the 760th worldwide to achieve this output. Coupling that with his apparent long term folding addiction, I hope he has few issues while squeezing out another 10 million.



Congratulations Newtekie.

Prime95 stable is not the same as VMWare folding stable. I think I'm going to recommend VMWare folding for people who want to make sure their computers are rock solid stable. I can get an hour out of Prime95, OCCT and LinX, but it fails after about 4 or 5 minutes in VMWare. :laugh:

We had a great production day yesterday, despite having one of the lowest active user counts we've had in months. Hopefully the Chimp Challenge will give us a kick start and a little boost back up to where we were holding at around 65-70 active users, if not surpassing that. Great work on all of the active users though, as they were able to keep our output roughly the same despite having 15% of the prior workforce drop off in the past few days. :toast:

Also, Thubans... I just got my 955 BE, but 6 cores vs. 4. I wonder if they'd be -bigadv friendly at 6 cores OC'd. They likely wouldn't hold a candle to the i7 920, but it'd most likely be better than the 5-6K my 955 BE gets now. On top of that, 200 dollars for the 1055. :twitch: I think I'm scheming a new scheme. :rolleyes:

Oh boy. I can hardly wait. Fiendish schemes are my personal favorite. :D
The Thuban is listed as compatible with my MSI 790FX-GD70, and I don't need Sata 3 for anything. Hell, I'm just finally getting out of 5400 RPMs. The best thing about this scheme, is that it's not a typical 'maybe over 3 months' scheme like I usually do. :slap::laugh:

When the milestones came about last night, we see that DriedFrogPills and Kiex both stood victorious with their respective achievements. DriedFrogPills got the ball rolling with his 50,000 point milestone, which places him squarely halfway down the road to his forum folding badge. Meanwhile, Kiex flexes his muscles as he reins in 250,000 for TPU. Congrats to the both of you! :toast:

Never underestimate the need for a good power supply. I hate to do new pricing, but this HX1000 seems to have cured what ailed me. Now with just a little tweaking I should be Chimp Challenge ready. :toast:

Looking at the Chimp Challenge thread, we've got a bunch of members that are just answering the call and taking on the challenge, or are returning for another crack at the console. Whichever the case, I'm glad to see so many contributing.

Last night's milestones started when Nexus7 got the ball rolling by reaching his first milestone for both TPU and in F@H. Having reached 10,000, he's just on his way to starting towards the forum badge at 100,000. However, ERazer has earned that forum badge just last night by reaching 100,000 himself and he can now sport that sucker around the forums here. Congrats go to Nexus7 and ERazer. :toast:

Well, my one i7 is now clocked at 4.01 and stable. It matches my air cooled i7 stride for stride in production, but does it at a nice 10-15 degrees cooler. The air cooled i7 will be getting water cooled as soon as the parts in the mail get to me. I may be a bit light in PPD on the day I do it, but I think I can run a loop and get it in place pretty quick. However, last night my AMD setup was having power supply issues that manifested while I was away in the afternoon and nearly corrupted my HDD all to crap. :banghead: After a long night of troubleshooting, I got things sorted by re-using the Ultra PSU. So far the Ultra X3 that wasn't enough for my i7 overclocked systems seems to be running my AMD setup quite beautifully. If everything has truly settled down in terms of hardware issues, I should be bringing ~110k to the table for Chimpowerup. :rockout:

Sunday saw the first milestone of adhptechnical as the sole highlight (and a good one at that), although Monday is already shaping up with a bit more activity. Congrats on your first milestone Adhp, hopefully there are many more error free milestones to come. :toast:

Well then, we're now the day before the official start of the contest and things seem to be going well. It's impossible to draw any sort of conclusions until we start seeing the first official numbers, though we aren't looking too shabby. I feel it'll be likely that we give a few teams a bit of a surprise. Excellent work so far everyone.

DaMulta is quickly moving up in the milestones, having just snagged 50k tonight. With another 50k, which should take no time, you'll have yourself the forum's folding badge to add to your post along with your 100k milestone. :toast: Amidst the few new members we see here tonight, we also see ChimPowerUp making a cool million. It seems we're just getting into the swim of things, so let's see how fast we can post those millions to the milestones. Congrats go out to DaMulta, and a thank you to everyone contributing.

Awesome to see all the progress is coming along swimmingly. :toast:

I've been out of folding action for a while due to my GTX285 (needs to go for RMA) but I'm still trying to fold as much as possible.

Luckily, I have a nice new UD7 and an i7 920 on the way! So I'll be making a dive into -bigadv folding. :D
Anyone have any tips or tricks for setting up -bigadv?

Thanks!

Last night's pie has been delayed to bring you special coverage of wholly important topic. What coverage is that, you ask? Well, the first update for the Chimp Challenge is in!

Monkey_Bollocks |9| 85,856 | 577,629 | 34.5 days[/TABLE]

Not a bad start, though EVGA is stomping the competition with their first update. However, many speculate that they only timed their clients for an initial big push, but will now have to wait while the rest of the teams get their -bigadvs and other workunits in to catch up. We can use every point you guys would like to put towards the challenge, it all still goes to Stanford in the end. Great work chaps, but I've just set my purse down and don't plan on picking it up until we've kicked some chimps.

If you'd like to follow along, you can use either HWC or EoC, though I recommend the HWC site as it has a rather fun smack talk shout box that is currently quite active.


Pie!

Last night Dustyshiv accumulated his 6 millionth point for TPU, an absolutely remarkable number considering he's also a top 10 cruncher for WCG and splits his production between the two projects. Thank you very much sir, congratulations to you, and here's a milestone while we're at it. :toast:
