post #371 of 3773
Howdy y'all, just got back from Canada at 11:00PM last night. We left an hour early, and our original ETA was 8:45PM, and the ETA with the hour early would've probably been around 8:00 (thanks to traffic in the Nashua/Manchester/Boston area), but our bus broke down about five minutes from the Canadian border. We were in the town of St. Albain's, VT (not sure if that's spelled right). It's this little town (big for Vermont) that's right between Canada and Burlington at the junction of I-89 and VT-104. Luckily, there was a gas station there, so we could buy food. While there, I probably spent around $10 on three bottles of milk and a turkey sandwhich. So, we finally got home, and I am exhausted. However, Canada was beautiful. Good to see that the entire team is doing well. Actually, I think this trip did me some good, as it kept me away from my computer for five days. This means that my tendency to spend hours on here might be gone. Here's hoping. Not that the site is bad...

Hi shajbot,

I hope you have a great time at those camps! I remember a few of those in my long ago past... I've sent my daughters to some Church camps here in Michigan as well. Perhaps you've heard of Springhill??

So Vista takes up a lot of resources, eh? That seems the way microsoft has been going over the past few years. Every new OS takes more and more of everything - memory/cpu/power. I know the consumer is asking for conveniences, but I think there is a limit... I thought Win XP either Home or Pro was a pretty robust OS. Not too many crashes or BSOD's!! I like it and it took me awhile to get out of Win 98.. I hated Win Me... Crashed a lot. I still have one rig with the FAT32 file system, but Win XP home as an update. If my youngest ever gets rid of her older games, I'll re-format the HDD and install a clean vesion of XP.

Looks like you're doing well folding for our team too! Thanks. I took my little XP1600 offline, but your rigs should help a lot...

It's been amazing for me, with regard to folding. I picked up 3- p1163 Tinker cores worth 241 points each on my 3 rigs. Two of them have finished and another one today. They take about 2 days to complete. But the real funny thing is that I now have two p2107's folding. 20,000 frames each and 80 to 90 hours each to complete... I wonder if my 3rd rig will pick up a p2107 too?? They're worth 404 points each, but so many days to complete them really slows things down...

Thanks for the extra rig for cappy... He should be on-line again soon, I hope..

Take care, :-)

Hi LBN,

Welcome back!! Yeah the team is doing good... cappy lost a HDD, but shajbot threw one of his into the fray... I put my older XP1600 in, but then read the "rules" about not having more than 3 rigs per team member. After the WU completed, I took it off-line. Taeric might get upset, but I noticed several "other" teams, bending the rules some, so I'm not too worried, I think.

I'm glad everything went well in Canada.. Did you get to use your second language?? And if so, How'd that go??

Stay in contact. Just don't spend so much time on the internet, I guess..

Take care, :-)

Ok boys, just an update...

My main rig (3.2C) is working on another p1163 Tinker core. Should be completed by tomorrow... The p2107's (2 WU) are being completed by my other rigs. They may come in faster, due to the computers not be used as much. I tend to use my main rig, 6 hours plus a day...

Take care and Fold On!

Hmm 455buick, it's indeed funny how I got the Tinker 1163 (241pts) and 2107 (404pts), too. I guess Folding is at last near complete, WUs are running out in any day.



j/k, just a wild thought

Thanks all, take care.

Hi shajbot, cappy, and LBN,

Here's a weird one for you. The p2107 that my main rig was working on failed after 14 hours and 2200+ frames completed of 20,000 total. Great, I thought I'd lost time and points. Well checking the Stanford web site they credited 46 points to me. Ok, but here's the really weird part...

At that point in time I had 193 totally completed WU's based on my spreadsheet. Stanford had me at 194, and I could never figure out why. I might know now. When the updates ran again I had 247 WU's completed!!
I was like "what the..." So I checked my FAH log file... In a 25 minute time frame my main rig tried to download and start up 53 different work units with no success! I wrote down all of the WU number's.. Some of the WU's couldn't open their file, some had errors and couldn't run... others just didn't get downloaded. Go figure... now I know why some folks folding have so many WU's completed or really low average points per WU.

My average points per actual completed WU is 210. Now it's 169 points based on that additional 53 WU's...
So my folding rigs are all in a state of working, but my main rig is working on a little 53 pointer...

Have you ever seen or heard of anything like this?? I've lost a total of 4 WU's since I started folding back on Feb 11th... 1 - 2053 / 2 - 2106 / 1 - 2107. But I've never seen anything like this...

Here's the list of WU's my main rig tried to download today - BTW they are all Gromacs:
16 - 2106 / 4 - 2107 / 26 - 2108 / 1 - 2109 / 1 - 2111 / 1 - 2112 / 3 - 2115 / 1 - 2122

Take care, :-)

Hi cappy,

Yeah those are old... But I think I can beat that. I'll take pics tomorrow.
A 486 SX for a whopping 50Mhz fsb! And a video card with only 1Mb ram..

I'll post it here, :-)
post #380 of 3773
Well take a good look at the standings now! I'm in 11th place for 37726 with a 516 point - 24 hour average. I saw that and flipped out...

When I checked my point totals and WU completion, here's what I found:
http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...hp?s=&u=175331

56 - WU's completed AND 918 points! No way... Un-believeable!
I PM'd taeric, becuase I know he'll get mad now... That's a farm or a batched queued server. Hmmm. I wonder if they'll ever straighten this out??

Take care guys and Fold On, :-)
