No kidding. Ya know... I joined this folding group about a week ago. I'll lay it out.... I had heard about distributed computing over a year ago but just thought people were searching for ET and soforth. I never gave it much of a thought.

Then, I am looking for advice on upgrading my 'puter. I find this board, register and find out tons of stuff about my 'puter upgrade.... and.... also find out about helping find cures for dieseases. Things that even effect members of my own family. And top it off with a team oriented competition thing.... ya know.... I love competition .. I love computers and by God.... I love games. Especialy competitive team oriented games.

I have an old processor (1Ghz T-Bird) and I realize I'm barely doing anything. Heck.... to be honest I'm not really sure how much I'm putting out. I know it's taken over 2 days to get this far...



I dont really know how to find out what my contribution is.

BUT... it doesn't really matter.... I just know that I am contributing ... it makes it worthwhile.

[pssssssst.... if anyone could tell me how to find this out.... I wouldn't mind ]

What's your name that you use for folding?

Here's the team stats: http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/teampage?q=1714

Talking Hey imdanimal,

Since you are using the Windows Graphical version, you can right click the Folding Icon in your system tray.

Click "Statistics" then Choose "Team Stats" or "User Stats".

It seems that the stats get updated, usually, every hour on or around the hour, but I could be mistaken on that. So if your WU finished at 5 after the hour, you should see your result go up shortly after the next top of the hour.

As far as the machine you Fold with only having a 1 Ghz CPU in it...

Well, I threw together a machine I have dedicated to Folding. It may only be a measly PIII 650 on an old Asus P3BF motherboard, but I now have over 500 points from her.

Yes, a 626 Fold may take me nine or ten days to complete at 24x7, but then I will get a whopping 76 points (I think that was it) and boost that weeks production a ton in one shot!

I have used my PIV 2 Ghz to Fold intermittently, but that machine uses so much electricity that it turns my office into a sauna if I operate it with the door closed. Maybe during the summer, when the Air Conditioning is on, it might be more realistic to run that a little more.

But I feel good about knowing I have one machine dedicated to the project and that it has helpped the reasearch for possible cures to disease.

Well, since you are contributing to a sub team, you won't see your actual progress, but you do have the knowledge that the sub group your are working with is a very competitive group of computers that is producing a combined effort of Folds to rank much higher than you could do on your own.

Wether you chose to join a sub group or to Fold your machine by yourself, you still are adding to the overall project.

You can right click on the icon in your system tray, click "statistics" and choose "log file", and in that "log file" you can find the names of the WU's that you have completed.

I don't know if there is a current compilation as to how much each different project is worth. That sure would be a nice web page to be able to view, if a list of all active projects and their point values assigned to them were available, for all the users in subteams who would like to know exactly how much they do contribute!

Wow... you mean no aspiring programming 13 year old genius has created a way for individuals to see their own personal stats generated from that big 'ol log file ?(thanks cat.. didn't know about that) Seems that a program should be able to just suck those stats off your log file and make a sub-sub-sub category that shows them.

This is the way I see the folding program work... please correct me if im wrong....

1. you get the fold problem
2. you get a portion of the problem to work on... download it off the server.
3. your processor works the problem it is given... then uploads the results to the server. I know I download/upload because my firewall asked for permission for the program to access the internet. In those uploads.... here is the individual stat part..... can't those idividual stats be uploaded and logged?

DaveM you can find the protein values HERE and on the Stanford site, but the servers are down right now.

imdanimal,

a way to track what you are doing is through the EM3 program. with it you can track all the proteins you complete (by type and quantity). you do not have access to statistical data on you production rates, but it might be able to cumpute record that info also to an html webpage.

some of the others hear that have worked with the option in the program can possibly provide you more info.
