Give me until Saturday a.m., & then I'll switch from running SETI@Home to doing this

See title/subject line: You can BANK on it, that I will be on this team doing FOLDING@Home, by Saturday this upcoming weekend, sometime...

:)

* Giving SETI@Home my last run this week.... seeing how far AMD CPU I have will "push its rac score" vs. the scores I know I obtained on my P4 3.2ghz Intel unit!

(Only thing still holding to SETI@Home is seeing that comparison happen here, as I mention here in this thread earlier!)

This one, in my signature, for starters... the other will be my Pentium 4 3.2ghz!

They'll be largely on, all-the-time most likely/as-per-usual.

P.S.=> They ought to make a fine set of contributors imo, because they BOTH do great SETI scores, landing me in Microsoft's "top 13 (P4) -25 (AMD, so far)" of 1217 (they are #51 on chart of ALL teams as well, good company (Figureatively, as in "MS rocks", & literally in terms of the power of the machines (& legions of them @ that team)))... apk

Just didn't want to start all my systems an waste a few hours so we could be told to go away. Plus I have spent $$$ on coolers for a few systems so I could run this, and am needing to spend another $60 on a cooler for our server 3.8Ghz Intel machine, built by meh.


SO after I did all that the mods at the last place started becoming dicks. Essentially I have had too much bullshit handed my way this year. So unless we get official TPU-W1zzard backing hand over a few greenbacks so I don't waste my time and money, again.

This isn't a charity, so we are not going to be handing out money to anyone. Key word to this thread is "Team", as in voluntary participation in a group.

I'm not asking for a handout. I have no problem supporting the team with a few, but if you guys want a full barrage of what I have got, I would like to see the "team" recognised by the site. Or a few greenbacks to buy the HS/F so I can fold with our server. :D

Yeah wireless is crap for a nonstop signal. Thats why i took my moms modem and gave her wirless becuase it doesn't cut out on her and she dosen't do anything besides E-Mail and surf the web. bah.

Folding seems like it takes forever sometimes. Chugging along on 2 folding projects at once because of hyper threading and i'm about 41 and 36% done each one. 20 million is a big number to step up to :S

Lol. I'm really pleased with my Belkin Wireless stuff now - haven't had one signal drop in the two months I've had it now and whenever I run ping tests I get 100% completion. The only problem is sometimes the ping can jump from 2-3ms to 700ms once every now and again. Still good for online gaming most of the time. :)

Be seeing you tomorrow sometime, joining team then & doing FAH instead of Seti@Home

Well, I told myself Saturday would be the mark where I transition away from doing SETI@Home into Folding@Home...

:)

* Tomorrow's that day.

(I'll be seeing you all on the FAH team @ some point then!)

APK

P.S.=> I did an experiment, to compare Intel CPU processing times vs. those of AMD for SETI@Home, by now ONLY running SETI on my AMD here.

And, that said?

It seems I can't break past #22 (of 1271 members total iirc) into the top 20 for "SETI@Home - Team Microsoft":

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/team_display.php?teamid=26482&sort_by=expavg_credit&offset=20

Mainly because I am only running 1 of my systems doing it of 2 possible here (I can't surpass guys with farms of machines doing it, like Steevo here is doing for THIS project for this team, big asset imo)...

My Intel rig got me up to 453 "rac" (recent avg. credit score) whereas my AMD now, even though it is FAR superior in Floating Point ops (via SETI benchmark), is falling short @ ~ 411 tops... this indicates a 10% difference so far, in favor of Intel CPU's using optimized clients, & yes, I am using a SSE3 optimized AMD client too!

Could not find such a recompile for specific cpu's for FAH though... @ least not so far.

My current AMD in my signature (fast as it is, & on MOST things, faster than my Intel P4 3.2ghz) is not outperforming my Intel older rig in it & I gave it PLENTY of time to show what it can do by way of comparison in SETI...

Again: Compiler code optimization for optimized clients is showing thru in favor of Intel.

Anyhow - I did my "experiment" & it is a fitting way to close off 7 years on/off doing SETI@Home & transitioning into FAH!

See you in the a.m. people... apk

Well, it now seems to work even with the firewall up so I am joining you guys folding at last! I'll probably also try to put my folks 2.2GHz Celeron on sometime because that seems to always be left on when it's not being used.

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
I added one and will be running config on the others tomorrow for a total of about 15.



I need to buy a new http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=373500




For the fucking server at work. I built it and it works a little too good for data serving, but runs too hot for my taste with the stock cooler with F@H. And my machine will not be joining the race, but I have a couple others here that will.
