General Folding Update Thread

I just wanted a place where people could post comments on the state of our (or their) folding@home projects.

Crazer and I have been duking it out for second place in average daily PPD for a while.

Hopefully I can keep folding in July/August. The humidity picks up and I need to turn on the dehumidifier in the basement, warms things up and sucks a ton of electricity as well. Maybe next year I can get one that vents the warm air outside.

VSEKH is trouncing all of us roundly as usual, I've seen him occasionally on the FAH forums.

Looks like DBoone had to drop out for now, I know his electric bill was getting the better of him. For those with computers in rooms (I'm in the basement), the warmer weather also causes computer rooms to heat up real fast as well.

As always, we could use new members!

Have fun and Fold On!

Holy smokes! Somebody just dumped a bunch of points on my account and it looks like [AB]Team_AthlonPower is back online and powering along - who is this mysterious folder?

Re: General Folding Update Thread

Well only Crazer and VSEKH are folding in the RED at the moment. We've lost a couple of folders, including me. Once I need to turn the humidifier on in the basement I stop folding (because it runs a lot and draws 1500 peak watts). When the cooler weather gets here in a couple of months, I'll start back up.

Re: General Folding Update Thread

Ugh, bummer. We've lost 4 folders in the past month

Hey we need NEW folders!!!!



On a personal note, this January will be the first month I hit over one million points
I'll reach somewhere between 1.3 & 1.4 million points by the end of January! All this thanks to my basement being frigid this month. I was going to buy a space heater and then I figured, why waste the money, I'll fold with all three of my machines and warm the place up at the same time

Re: General Folding Update Thread

I may start up one box folding again for awhile. What are the best settings to use for a quad core?

Re: General Folding Update Thread

Just download the installer from Folding@home

The only thing you'd have to watch are your temps, but I don't think you are overclocked, so that shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for jumping in Griff!
