Skip to comments.(Vanity) FreeRepublic Folding@Home Project Update (We're in the Top 1,200!)
Posted on 12/25/2005 7:13:22 PM PST by texas booster
OK, new thread for the next week.
First, a big shout out to the SETI members who have added CPUs to the effort. Remember, its Team 36120, NOT Team 0.
Next, congrats to all for bumping our team up to 104 processors and 76 users. We have a number of new users in the team, with Clara Lou, fzx12345, SamfromLivingston, brityank, manwiththehands and Tami all popping onto the hit list this week.
Malsua, uriah and Ken in Texas are solidly in the top 10. Malsua is continuing to add systems and now accounts for 10% of the FR total. Great job!
Free Republic Folding@Home Stats Page
On the global front, Free Republic Folders is now listed at # 1196. We are poised to overtake (today):
carletonu (maybe in MN?)
Greece and soon the
University of Pennsylvania!
We were passed by one team, SISD. My guess is that this team really is the computers of an Independent School District that were all "volunteered" to fold over the holidays. They are producing points at a rate of 37,000 points per day. As we gain members from the 100,000 FReepers that visit JimRob's place I expect that we will have a much greater long term growth than them.
We expect to pass 200,000 total points on New Years Eve!
We have a chance to pop into the Top 1000 Teams by Saturday if we can have a few more systems added to the pack.
Still moaning for a suitable client, am I....
i joined also, am at middle of pack of freepers
All that computing power and STILL no free weekend minutes!.........
New Folding @ Home ping.
Please let me know if you want -on- or -off- the F@H ping list!
I have an extra box doing nothing, I'll join.
We have been watching your progress.
7 work units in your first week is impressive. As your system keeps crunching work units you'll continue to climb.
Thanks for all of your help!
Just joined in with my one measly little unit.
I only got one single core CPU system but I overclocked it a little (20%). I love my AMD64 cpu, if I knew I was going to be folding I would have got a dual core one though. Guess I could upgrade some day. Nah not worth the cash. :)
I just bought a dual core AMD 64, but I have to use it for work so I can't really spare it. I just added a spare machine, but it's old and slow.
You can run this on your main systems also. It does not need to be dedicated to F@H.
Go into the configuration tab and set the % of CPU available to around 75% or so. Excellent response and you get decent work accomplished.
You can also name more than one machine with your user name. I have four systems, three at home and one at work. Malsua currently is running with 10 CPUs on his user name.
I'll think about it, I run datbases and compiles all day long on my other machines, and I don't really want to slow that down.
Thanks for your support! You do not need a supercomputer to help out, just a willingness to help.
Looking forward to seeing you on the charts in a day or so.
Once I buy a motherboard I spend my next upgrades on memory and faster video.
After all I run Windoze ...
Thanks for helping get/keep this going.
Add one more SETI cruncher to the mix....
Just joined. Looks like my first box picked a tough one--3750 frames, ECD March 13th (!!). My laptop got an ECD of 10 days. Will be a while before I show up on your stats.
Is it okay that I don't have any idea what this thread is about?
