If someone will donate a board to me. I will donate a sempron 2200 based pc with 1 gig of ram and 2 80gb harddrives to a needy hothardware member. Its not the fastest computer in the world but a computer none the less for the price of a am2 board. I would post this in other parts of the forum but my headache hurts and don't want to make it worse
My main rig is now back online.....just 4 more to go.....transam you are now firmly in the crosshairs and with my gear (course minus the new cpu) I'm good for 24,000ppd barring a catastrophic failure.
Come on I look forward to the challenge. lol Good to have you back man. Sorry to hear bout how you been feeling though. Hope everything gets better for ya.
Look at my points go...[:D]
Come on its kinda lonely up here at the top. [H]
I just joined Team HH! The user name, of course, is ClemSnide.
In the old days, I had fun with another distributed process, SETI@home. I'm still on my clunker, so I may not contribute an enormous amount. But If I win that i7 rig HH is giving away, that would improve my score, and thereby Team HH. Not that that should influence your decision, but y'know, it would be best for all of us. .)
Seriously. I tried setting it up with an older hardware configuration and had troubles, so I put it on the back burner and just now got it working. Cross fingers!
Congrats to you, sir.
Cool If you need any help with it dont hesitate to ask. And Welcome to the team!!
I'm coming for you transam02! [8o|]
At this rate, I'll be caught up in a couple of hundred years. :)
Hey, it's all about doing some good with those wasted computer cycles. I just wish F@H would launch at startup-- it doesn't seem to want to under Win7.
Clem- What folding clients are you using?
To tell you the truth, and coming from a medical background, Stanford team hasn't done much with the computer power available to them. Given the same power to Dr. Ghiorse over at Cornell or Dr. Guidotti over at Harvard and you'd have seen a couple of Field medals by now.
But I think F@H isn't as much about helping science, as much as it has become a competition between highly competitive computer geeks. [:)]
With that in mind...Yay, i'm 175th and climbing!!
@transam02: The Windows system tray version 6.23, build of November 26 2008. Its shortcut is in my Startup folder but it doesn't launch at startup; when I do it manually it always gives me the UAC dialog asking me whether I really, really want to perform the action I, a college-educated adult, just did on my own computer. (Sorry. I'm annoyed at Win7 at the moment.) I did reduce the length of time between checkpoints, as my computer crashes and restarts 5 or 6 times a day.
@gibbersome: I have to take peoples' word for whether it's actually doing anything good, but I hope it will. I've gotten my entire improv class into folding; and you're right, I do like the rankings, but more than that I like the idea of being a small part in good works. As do all of us, I believe. It's just a wonder that my old AGP 8x Radeon 3870 is able to do much at all!
I've had to retire my laptop from folding due to overheating issues. [:(]
But that new Origin PC HH is giving away will be a folding beast!
hahah! that it will!
