      iampakman,
      What are you running? A supercomputer?
      I'm running a AMD 64 X2 @ 2.2Ghz and an Intel Laptop @ 1.8Ghz(probably) and I don't seem to be getting anywhere near the Top 10.

      lol no. each WU takes 4 hours on my PS3. i let it run while im at work, and sleeping

      The combined PS3 users who have just installed the client and not changed the user name or team number are currently the #1 producer. They average over 2 million points per day.

      I was referring to #8 on our vwvortex team, not #8 world wide. I'm still like 180,000 on the list!

      I notice we're getting beat by ClubLexus and Ukraine. Surely VWVortex is more powerful than either

      Well, you don't have all of VWvortex muscle. Only the few nerds and geeks that come to the Computers forum,

      I spend most of my time in TCL, and have updated my sig to show the Folding@home effort. Perhaps it'll catch a few more eyes.

      Just did that! I will send an IM to the powers that be to see if they can do something VWvortex wide.

      I have a question for you guys. I'm running their beta client since their FAQ said it would better for multi core CPUs and it's only using 50% of the processing power.
      When I check task manager it only shows 1 instance of the FAHcore running. Shouldn't there be 2? Or is it running correctly?

      If you're running either the GUI or the no nonsense console on a dual core system, you need to run another no nonsense console on it as it's only taking advantage of one core. You can only have one GUI running, so you'd have to load another console. It has to be in a different folder and you need to specify a different machine ID when installing, the original install will be ID#1, the second should be #2.
      Or run the SMP client as it's much better equipped for the newer systems.
      How fast is the CPU you have? If it's fast enough, you can get a BIG point bump by running the SMP client. A tweaked Q6600 quad core system can put out 3500+ points per day, vs the 1000 or so you're getting running a single GUI or console.
