      Looks like someone turned this into a puzzle game.

      Someone on my floor showed me that. I've yet to try it but it looked like a solid game.

      Sofar it seems like it uses the CPU quite a bit. I've been hitting 80% on my MBP when running the different tools to adjust the proteins.

      The puzzles go from move one item to you gotta be kidding me.

      My gtx 295 is going to be down until the third. I'll have my PS3 folding as much as possible in the meantime. My apologies

      edit I may have my i7 860 available next month. If so, I'll be using the SMP client and should get about 25-35ppd from it, depending on how much I'm using it.

      Well I couldn't get the Linux clients to work at home...

      But I did set it up on my two computers here at work, since they're sitting idle 24hrs a day anyway... Both are dual-core ~2ghz machines, so not powerhouses but good nonetheless.

      Any idea why the client only uses 50% of CPU resources? System idle process uses the other 50%......

      Not sure, but in Windows, have to use the switch -smp to make it use all the available cores. As far as I can tell, it runs the first work unit as single core, WU's after that initial one is done, uses multiple cores. on my machines, it's fah6.exe -smp to start it.

      Well 2 computers running it (soon to be 4) got me to 79th place so far on the team

      Averaging 3 WU/day I think?

      GO TEAM!

      What cpu are you trying to run the smp client on? You have to have a dual core machine for it to be beneficial

      I'll double check when I go back to work tomorrow..

      Core 2 Duo does not need SMP client, correct? Wife's laptop shows 2 cores in the task manager, but is it really a *dual* core?

      I do believe both work computers are true dual-core PC's. One AMD and 1 Intel. E6600 or similar?

      Good stuff

      I have 4 machines running it currently, I've moved up to 55th place in the team with 149WU complete...

      One question, how can people have so many points with so few WU's done? Are they harder/bigger WU's?

      Glad to hear you're joining in on the fun.

      Yes, if you see more points with fewer work units, they are probably harder or take more time.

      I run "bigadv" units on my core i7 which can take up to 4 days to complete with my machine running 24/7. Each of those work units is worth ~70,000 points.

      Depending on your CPU, you may be able to run the SMP client, which makes use of systems with multiple cores. I think I could even run it on my dual core atom netbook.

      Did you set up the SMP client? Folding -bigadv units with the SMP client, you should be able to get ~43,000 PPD

      Not sure. New to this. I just downloaded the client from Stanford, and it shows up in my sys prefs. Punched in my username (same) and team number, and away we go? Doesn't seem like there are alot of options in this client. Is their something else I should be using?

      Edit: Also got it up on my WHS.

      To use the smp client for your i7, you download the client from the high-performance client page here:
      http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther

      There's an awesome tutorial on how to set it up here:
      http://www.overclock.net/folding-hom...mp-client.html

      I promise it's not as hard as it looks.

      Unfortunately, when I said "Hackintosh", it's a i7 running OSX. I downloaded the OSX client, and according to the activity monitor it is maxing out all of it's cores/threads. That should help, ya?

      Oh, gotcha. That's the best you can do with OSX. I must have subconsciously discounted that because roomate is running Win7 in parallels on his macbook pro (running the SMP client in windows)

      Just curious if any of you running Folding@Home have looked at the power consumption of your PCs then calculated the cost monthly for running Folding?

      My old roommate ran Folding 24/7 on his PS3 and I charged him an extra $17/month.

      I think you may actually be better off donating to a charity that would buy time on a supercomputer to run folding than having your own computer do it... A supercomputer will process a lot more data at a lower cost.

      Does anyone know if one of those exists?

      I think the whole reason for having distributed computing was because it was difficult or prohibitively expensive to buy time on a supercomputer.

      ^^^ right, also you if search for the tianhe-1A, just utilities alone averages out to be $3.5 mil usd/year,
      not including management, hardware, infrastructure.

      having family members die from various forms of cancer gives me more of a vested interest in this
      type of distributed computing than trying to chat with e.t.
      folding is like religion, some get it and some dont, no biggie
