Storing Fold Jobs and sending at a later date?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am wanting to build a small PC to run here at the office for folding. I know its ok to run the PC but do not want to connect it to the local network. My question is, is there anyway to store the folding jobs and then send them off when internet is restored?

How long are you looking to store the jobs? From what I remember, there are due dates for each project you fold (and bonus points for doing it sooner than the due date). Point is, Stanford needs those projects at some point. Every project has a different due date.

Out of curiosity, does this PC move? Is it a laptop? From your explanation, I don't fully understand the environment.

If you don't plan on "sending" the work within a day or two, don't bother folding, as you'll probably be "fired" from your jobs and they'll be handed over to other workers. I might be exaggerating when I say only a day or two, but it depends on the job.

Initial Setup
1. Make a FAH folder on the thumbdrive.
2. Put the FAH502-Console.exe file into the folder.
3. Launch the console on a computer connected to the internet. Do the normal config but don't launch as a service.
4. Wait until it downloads a work unit and starts working, then press Ctrl+C to close the console.
5. Depending on if you want to leave the thumbdrive in the P4
A. just launch the console from the thumbdrive, or
B. make a directory on the harddrive and copy the FAH folder to it and launch the console from the harddrive.

Maintenance

6. When the workunit finishes, if you chose:
A. Close the console, take the thumbdrive to your connected computer, launch the console, let it upload and download a new workunit, close the console, take the thumbdrive and launch the console on the P4
B. Close the console, delete the whole work folder and queue from the thumbdrive, copy the whole work folder and queue file to the FAH directory on the thumbdrive, take the thumbdrive to your connected computer, launch the console, let it upload and download a new workunit, close the console, take the thumbdrive to the P4, delete the work folder and queue from the hard drive, copy the work folder and queue from the thumbdrive to the hard drive, launch the console
