As of 5 minutes I ago I completed my 10th SMP WU. What do I do now? My profile shows 10wu and 5800pts
. I thought I saw somewhere you have to really do 11WU before you can start bigadv. Is that true? I guess I will just let the rig fold under windows smp for another day, and then start VM folding tomorrow morning. I should have 11+ WU by then.
When I start the VM, should I run big-bigadv like I setup earlier (here
)? Or should I run hugeadv? Which will yield more points? If I shouldn't fold big-bigadv, is there a tutorial for setting up what I should run?
Thanks for help.
Yeah, I have pretty strict standards on what I consider stable for my rigs because for the most part, they get tuned on, folding auto starts and then they are left for months at a time. I only have monitors/keyboards/mice connected to 3 of my 6 rigs, and 2 of those hardly ever get touched! I have a laptop that ran for nearly a year without being touched, just folded its 500-1000 PPD while sitting on a desk. I only touched it to shut it down due to heat issues we've started having in the house b/c our AC unit is 2 sizes too small for our house (thanks to the previous owner, that was nice of him), I've actually shut down all of my folding except my TC rigs and I do a few WUs on my main rig (R2-D2 below).
As for the VM, the setup you referanced is the one you want to follow to do the hugeadv WUs. There really is no such thing as hugeadv WUs, they are just REALLY BIG bigadv WUs, so we here on OCN have started calling them hugeadv WUs to make the distinction (they are WU #s 6903 and 6904). So long as you followed Digi's guide, you should be all set. I've used his guide to set up all of my bigadv rigs and it works great.
I like his guide so much and spend so much time helping people set it up that I'm currently working on a YouTube video series on it (just to further help people out). I've got the first couple of videos done, and should get the rest done this weekend, then I'll upload them all and post a thread.
Point being, you should be all set! Good luck!!
