my dual xeon beast runs 2 instances of seti and 1 instance of climate predictor
Quick question...I'm sharing a 1MB connection with 3 housemates. Does F@H hog all the available bandwidth?
Nope. Only to download/upload work units, which are like 200k.
Far from it - will only connect to the net every 24-48 hours, and then only for about a minute.
Then join TKC too
You type tons! You'd be great And a legend
I know it's TheBeanSprout's ambition to get all the mod team doing TKC
Already joined fair maiden
I cant do as much folding as I'd like for a while, so TKC shall feel my presence
I'll gladly be able to help some time in the near future - I now have a spare PC due to the wife just getting a new one. It's going to be a download box, but I need a few bits for it first that she stole for the new machine. When it's setup and ready I'll be on-board
I thought I'd wandered into the DC Forum for a moment there! Quite confusing!
Yes, join us! Our Folding team is doing pretty well recently, and we're climbing the tables at a rate of knots!
It is my mission to get everyone doing TKC!
It takes but a couple of minutes and can then be left alone, accruing kliks
We need I reckon another 400 members if we want to get to the top!
Climbin' climbin' climbin'!
In other words, we need probably 30% of OCUK's daily visitors to sign up - no problem!
Especially all them gamers and SC types
We're gonna reach the top and never stop
And then it ain't gonna bother me
I wanna be a man mancub, and stroll right into town
Be just like the other men, I'm tired of mopin' around
Oo be do do I wanna be like you-ou-ou
Hmm, time for my medicine
yea i really don't mind helping:
1gb 3700 memory
Available to you, what project would be the most needed ?
Any project really....Seti is the one which we've fallen behind on badly, but I think the Folding team would see the most impact....the Seti team needs a serious fleet of machines due to the loss of several fleets
Folding is also more fun I suppose, a smaller team so the competition is more intense, and there's more sense of making a difference.
Oh, and you get Mr. Rich 99 million off your back too, he's terrible at teasing us Seti lot over to Folding
you think the folding machine would see the most impact ? Then i'll do that, though i'm not fussy either way, just happy to help
Will get on it now
/climbs down off hilly's back
welcome to the team
under my sig you may find some useful info \o/
Folding@Home will love your rig, Seti@Home is currently experiencing just a few problems (web page is totally borked) hopefully they will be sorted soon though
no matter what project/s you choose we all get along pretty well - apart from the odd few die-hard seti crunchers who think all other projects are just pure eeeevil
I've just started running SETI on my machine and joined the OCUK team - it should get quite a bit of time from my PC as I don't use it much at the moment (need some new bits & pieces...).
The missus said she'll help as well - running it on her new 3.0GHz P4. Might get her to do folding?
And as I said before, once the spare machine is up and running that will be munching away as well
Im folding for team 10 as Mekrel
TKC o/ You're going down in about 100 days Pix ¬.¬
Poked back into page one for the daytime people.
Curio - get the missus folding, an excellent cause and not too geeky (Berserker's words ), just don't make any jokes about folding sheets as you're likely to end up hurt
Welcome to the team Mekrel, you'll appear in the stats within an hour of your first WorkUnit being completed and returned
Anymore for any more?
Must be some other people who could donate their CPU time to a good cause. It can be fun but you'll barely notice it if you don't want to, other than that warm feeling that you're giving something back to OcUK
