I've just started using Folding@Home, and I thought we might create a DaniWeb Folders team.

For those of you who would like to be a part of our fight to cure diseases, by using your unused CPU time, please check out http://folding.stanford.edu

When setting up your client, enter Team # 41335 to be a part of the DaniWeb Folders distributed computing group.

    I'm not quite sure if the goal is different eachj time you finish a work unit - I believe it is. I just leave it running 24/7 on my machines, in the system tray. So what are you doing still using Windows Me anyways? ;) Read More

hey, cool, im in. only where do you setup your client and enter that number? I guess its just when its setting up and asks you for you name eh?

Thanks for joining our group :) I just started today, as well, so the group is brand new ... so we can start together. If you are using the Windows XP graphical version, it will have a little icon in your system tray. Right click on the icon and select Configure. Under the User tab, it will ask for a User name and also for a Team number. Just enter 41335 as the team number :)

2000 whats? I don't know either - I just started this afternoon as well!

well to the left there is a completion percentage, im not sure what it does when it is complete, but it says its supposed to be complete when it reaches 25000. I dont know what that number is but im currently at 2250.

Ahh. Perhaps you are talking about the number of frames of the work unit. You need to complete all of the frames, and then the work unit will be submitted back to [email="Folding@Home"]Folding@Home[/email] :)

0

That's because you haven't completed any work units yet. Each time you complete a work unit, it is sent back to [email="Folding@Home"]Folding@Home[/email] along with a username and team number. In other words, every work unit has a username and team number associated with it. That data is then displayed on the team site :)

Okay! Count me in! I just started, and with an XP2500+ processor, I have no idea when I'll upload a work unit!

I started this morning on two machines ... a first generation Intel 3 ghz (400 mhz bus) and a dualie mac G5 ... my mac finished a work unit in a little under 12 hours and my Intel is still chugging away. Macs are good number crunchers I guess :)

But in any case, welcome to the team, Alex! :)

what?! you cant use this as a screensaver on ME? that sucks that means i will have to enable it everytime i leave, what a pain. lol, im so lazy, even when it comes to diseases... :cool: and is the goal different everytime you finish a work unit?

lol, well i installed XP but the 256mb ram stick i ordered wasnt compatible, so i didnt have enough ram to run XP efficiently, so I reinstalled ME again until i get more ram. Im totally striking out with this whole ram thing!

Not necessarilly. If it works like Seti@Home the workload in each unit can differ wildly.
I've had workunits complete in an hour when the next took 12 hours or more on the same machine (without me at the keyboard, I kept it going all day and night).

Since we started, my Windows machine has submitted two work units. And my mac has submitted like 8! :)

Until I find a different machine to do this on, I'll have to put my love affair with Folding@home on hold after three platry work units.

I don't know if it was VMWare or Virtual Server doing it, but I was running into lots of ugly "Not enough quota" errors, and it was wrecking the "real" work that I was doing at the time. I'll have to pick things up a little later. :(

I'm game, but my XP2400+ can probably only cook out a work unit every 2 or 3 days.

Actually, my 2500+ with 512MB of RAM kicked out 3 in about 1.5 days...

Try setting the CPU usage level down. That should help.


Damn! I'm already part of another Folding@home team, so I guess I'll have to be traitorous to DaniWeb :(

Okay, I suddenly have my eyes fixed on getting position 2 instead of position 1 lol. Keep it real...!

Hi all,

I have been wondering what to do with my extra cycles since I stoped running seti@home and well here you go it seems like a good cause and well I leave them on anyway.

Cheers

I don'tunderstand the fold@home points thing I have only gained 241 points though I have done more than one WU. I have looked on the web site and I dont see how you can have such small points for doing so many work units. Can anyone explain how there point system works or how work units are taken into account??? Oh well I have put some cpu's into play on this project and we will see if they are counted in the end.
