    Cool. Theoretical situation here. Assuming everything remaining equal, how many 2080ti’s would it take to get us in the top 10 within a year!?

    Any way of getting a notification when one of your machines stops folding?
    One of my VMs has been stuck downloading a WU since 26/11 which has wasted 100K points a day.

    Incidentally it's nice that they've restored some of the credit for CPU folding, as I have no GPUs I can fold on.

    Hmm, is it a Linux VM?

    I only ask because I had to write a windows batch file to restart my folding on one of my computers because twice a day it got stuck downloading. So I wrote a batch file to monitor the time stamp of the log and if it didn't change in 3 minutes to kill and restart all the fah processes.
