if this isn't borging then all you have to do is make sure the .cfg file is in the same directory as the linux client on the webserver. if you are borging i don't think anyone will help you though.

Hey Guys!

I'm posting in this thread in hopes to get some of you back into the forum.  There are a lot of members in this thread that contributed in general to the forum and site and we need you back!  Big Smile

Hopefully the forum system will send out an automated response to members in this thread that we haven't seen here in a long time.

Oh and I just fired up my FAH client here again.  QX6700 at work now and will be upgrading to faster quad-core soon!

I am joining the Folding @ Home team here at HH, and only If I could get my hands on that 8 Core system, I would bring this team up to top 10 in the F@H stats page. lol :) That system would truly be a Folding @ Home monster.

I'm deffinately interested in getting into folding for HH. Unfortunately my desktop crapped out on me tonight. [:'(] I have a laptop also, but don't really wanna leave it turned on for any length. Once I troubleshoot the problem and get my main PC up I'll get started folding... contest or no contest. I read up on folding and it is deffinately worthwhile!!!

What's the best graphical client to run right now?  I tried the 6.04 beta in Vista but it crashed on me.  I have a QX6850 and Vista 32.

Try either running four instances of the console version or one instance of the SMP client.

Oh, now I get what he wanted. You can only run once instance of the Graphical console. The SMP might mbe in command console, but it is still nice to see that you can get around  1500 points if you fold for like 1-2 days in a row with only once instance. The SMP version allows you to run many cores in one instance. :)

 The SMP client is fantastic, I had a q6600 rig next to me a couple weeks ago, and damn was I surprised by the performance

 I just jumped on the hothardware team ^_^. I was folding for a different forum I'm a regular at, but they don't need my help, they are already in the top 100. Even though I only have a 3.2 prescott...atleast it'll contribute something to hothardwares team =P. I pretty much pull a WU every 2-3 days..lol. So yea...Expect to see my name up on that list in a couple days...lol..

 I have a spare dual AMD MP 1800+ rig, nothing extremely powerful obviously, but once I can scrounge up some cash to get a replacement power supply for it (the psu in it gives off a burning smell when turned on, so I know it's about to die), I'll pop it up as a 24/7 folding rig for HotHadrware ^_^....

If only I had a PS3 >_<. Damn machines are folding monsters.

 Let the folding begin. My rig will probably be about as useful with this folding as it would be folding laundry, but nevertheless she's on the job.

15/1500 frames completed, only 04d:04h:45m until my first WU's completed! This would seem to be rather slow. How long does it normally take others on here for 1 WU?

By the way, I tried to edit my above post to add this ^ to it and I got the following message:

Oops something went wrong!

Either the site is offline or an unhandled error occurred. We apologize and have logged the error. Please try your request again or if you know who your site administrator is let them know too.

 

I also tried to edit some other posts and had no problems, so it must be specific to either the Folding Forum, or this thread.

Well I just downloaded and started using the client. I've been meaning to do this forever. Hanging out here and seeing everyone doing it has allowed my guilt to make me get off my duff and get started.

I used to carry a hammer in my computer tool kit. Just for fixing the packard Bells though.......

I have not been folding much since it is been crazy hot here and my tiny computer room heats up like a oven. I'll start back folding when I am out of the house though so I dont have to sit in the heat.

mine does it automatically with vista, if you're using vista i think there's a start up program thing in the Control Panel.. or if there's not Auslogics comes with a Startup Programs thing

Since I have a quad core cpu does that mean I should run 4 instances of folding@home?  I have it setup to utilize multiple cores, however I have a feeling it's using only one at a time, especially since it only utilizes 25% of my cpu.

Yea I would suggest what Bob said. Now if this pc is not being used that much you could set it up to run two instances of vmware that runs the smp client in it. My quad is producing anywhere from 3000-5000 ppd compared to just 2000ppd  or less. But if this is ur main rig and you use it alot just the regular smp client would do cause the other way does use up alot of memory while it is being used. If you guys want to read up on it though check out this link.  http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1410289
