Why aren't you folding? - Page 3

post #21 of 53
I really don't get how folding works and there is no way im leaving my main system on when im not home, I could do my lappy and my bro and siss computers though, I still don get how to set up more than one on my accout nor how to set it up at all.

Lappy = pentium m 2.0 1gig 9700,
Sis = p4 2.8 dell fx5200 gig
mom = p4 2.4 dell 9200 gig
bro = p4 dell 3.6 x300 gig

All refurbished from the dell outlet = cheap, considering 2 use to be mine before i built one myself lolz.

There's really no danger leaving your systems on 24/7 just as long as your cooling is good. I often go months without a reboot let alone a shut down.

Anyway, all you need to do is download the program, run the configuration, enter your username (just use one name on all of the systems), and enter team 37726. You can tweak things further, but that's all you need to get started. Links for the download and check in are included in my signature.

I strongly agree, there is nothing wrong with leaving ya rig turned ON, its not like they need a rest to recover, every once in a while a restart is good but apart from that go your hardest, they dont wear out (for a long time) so keep them running, ive had my old duron 800 turned on without a restart for probably around..well as long as I can remember (not very long too much beer last night) but if you do have a rig just running its probably worth having a look to see if its still running as I just found out one of my folding rigs that I havent checked in a couple of weeks has decided to die on me for some reason, best I get it running again before the comp starts them.......hey!!!! go team!!

Thats why theres FAHMON http://fahmon.silent-blade.org/
I havent plugged a monitor into a couple of my systems in awhile. I just use fahmon to make sure that they are still folding and see to WUs that they are working on.

Well this is actually pretty nice. Once Engadget passes us in about 10 days we arent set to be passed again for almost a entire year. So lets keep cranking out those WUs.

How do you have no time? All you have to do is start the program and let it run. You could even do it in your sleep.

Folding takes about 60 seconds to set up, and then you don't have to worry about it again as long as you set it as a service or put it in your startup folder. A 133 MHz CPU wouldn't help much, unfortunately. The 466 MHz I have going is all but a waste. It cranks out a small WU every 7-35 days, so it's not helping the cause very much at all. A P4 however, could make some real progress with very very little effort on your part.

I still see a lot of members not folding, Im pushing this because its for a good cause and it doesnt make any difference to you if your cpu is being used at all, you will not notice any difference in performance at all with the program running, the only thing you will notice is your cpu temp will be under load all the time, that is what these things are built for, they dont ever need a rest, ever! When you turn off ya rig it doesnt become healthier and jump back to life when re-started, it makes no difference at all. If you arent folding then why please?
