Oh well, atleast it aint just me then lol
if animated .gif's were allowed I would show you.
it's probably uou a couple years ago
joined and running console on my macbook pro
-just set up on windows (running 2 consoles to utilize each core)
-going to set up on OSX as system 2 in a bit
anyone know if there's a way to minimize console to anywhere other than the taskbar? maybe to the system tray or something?
run it a service when windows starts
well I've never heard of that before or how to do it, also it that possible when running 2 consoles on a dual core cpu?
Cannot run more than 1 console at a time...
Sure you can. All you have to do is run it from a folder named differently than the first.
I still have a program setup for this to run as many clients as you want.
haha I was going to say that but being a newbie to FAH kept quiet so I wouldn't have to put my foot in my mouth!
yeah I've got two running but can anyone link me to some info on setting them up as a service? I don't have any experience with that and I haven't been able to find anything on FAH website
it is also best to put the -local switch in when running more than one client, if you are running them as a service you can edit the service to include that switch.
i don't think it is required anymore, but it used to be, so it doesn't hurt to have it.
you also have to set each console to use a different machine number when you first run it
Download and run.
Also send me free things. Or just fold more.
Our team borke into the top 700 !! Woohoo!
Keep folding guys !
@Steevo : Nice area that you live in. I've always like Colorado. For some reason I thought you were in California, not one of my favorite place. Nothing against CA, just too many people unless you are secluded in the mountains.
@Alcpone : Still can't get the SMP core working? Did you try redownloading it? No clue what's wrong. It works fine for me. Do you have it set to pull the latest cores?
@Batou : Great job! You are moving up fast !
@Dual Core People : If you have a dual core processor, try running the SMP core instead of two console cores. You get extra points for using the core.
It's not that the scores are that big of deal, but the friendly competition is fun.
If through our folding we can help them find a cure for even one disease, we all win.
OMG good idea, it was so obvious. Thanks alot.
I got two more machines folding, a Pentium D 805 and a Celeron D@3.15GHz. The only problem is that they only have internet access from 11:30PM to 12:30AM, so there will probably be a lot of time they will be just sitting waiting for a new WU.
Crap. I'm going to have to add more systems at work or I will never overtake you at the #2 spot.
Added another Celeron D@3.15GHz to the mix.
You beat me
Well im going slow cuz I dont have ny main rig up and running but soon I will
Also are you just running the console version ?
Im scraping to keep 5th once kreij overtakes in the coming weeks, im down to running the low scorer console version which gives like 200 points at the very most
I got £72 for my X1950Pro on fleabay Just wish it was a better performer in games and I would of kept it for the folding contribution I was doing aswel!
I am running the console version on 3 machines here at work. I have not been folding on my home rig as the temperatures are rising and I want to put a new cooler on it before I go back to running the CPU that hard. I think it may be a bit hard on the processor to run it at 70C for long periods.
I was going to get a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, but I can't find one anywhere (out of stock).
So it will be awhile before I am threatening again
On a side note it looks like the Folding servers are down this morning ... actually looks like all of Stanfords servers are unavailable, not just the folding ones.
I have another Pentium D 805 and an x1900GT just sitting on my counter at home waiting to be put in a motherboard and added to the folding experience, I just need the money to buy a decent motherboard for them.
I tried running the GPU client on my x1650, it didn't work out too well.
hey guys I was wondering how to get that little score spreadsheet you have in your sigs?
65896 is the current number of folding teams. One percent of that number is 658.96. When our team ranking gets to 658 we will be in the top #1% of contributors! Our current team rank is 683. Thank you for your contribution to folding at home lol.
