Yay me!
My current work unit has 20 000 000 steps, so it might be a while before you see another one :)

It has 20 million frames? Wow, the most I've seen yet is 500 (which is why my WU count is high relative to my point total). I didn't even realize they made WU that big.

I've had ones with frames in the 5 digits and some in the 3 digits, and it seems the more frames there are, the smaller/faster they are to process. It balances out to some degree.

There is a reason for the difference in the number of frames... There are a few different cores that WU are generated for. One is Gromacs, one is QMD, etc. I think the QMD units score more points and have more frames.

You can tell which core is running when the unit initializes.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"I know, I know you are saying "sure there was some bad calls, but Jake Gyllenhaal obviously dropped too many easy catches and Ang Lee had some horrible clock management at the end of each half!"" (krakken2000)


About damn time, too. Maybe that was one really intensive work unit, seeing as it was just 400 frames, and I'd left the comp alone for long stretches. I think the current one's something like 10,000.

    See: extremeoverclocking.com under the folding stats, for example.


Have you seen the fahstats.com page? Lot of neat looking stats there

That's pretty cool! I think I prefer the layout of the folding.extremeoverclocking.com stats, but we won't be on there for a while due to the fact that they only track the top 2000 teams. We're about 70,000 points outside of the top 2000. Still, we're picking up points at a pretty good clip so we should be there within a few months.

I'll definitely bookmark that site for now.

I had some random strangeness happen to me yesterday. I tried to play both "The Movies" and "Civilization IV", and I would get booted to the desktop every few minutes. The game would keep going (it wouldn't shut down), I'd just have to click the icon to go back into it.

I couldn't get a game to stay on my computer screen until I quit Folding@Home.

Hmm... command line or Screen saver?

You may want to close it down while doing heavy gaming tasks. It should only take your idle CPU, but in a game that may still be choppy as it turns on and off.

Hmmm... looks like this, maybe.

http://forum.folding-community.org/viewtopic.php?t=13603&highlight=civ

OpenGL? Are you running the screen saver or the Windows version with Graphics? It looks like either of these may conflict with an OpenGL based game.

Safest bet would be to suspend or close the client when playing these games.

Yup, as long as I suspend the client while I play, it's all good. It threw me for a loop, as I thought I broke my computer. Good thing I remembered I installed Folding@Home before I tore my computer apart.

So, Guru, I sign up for this deal and it says my first work unit is going to be completed in may 2009 - does that sound right? I mean, I am running a P3. It has 50000 frames.

Uh, I won't have this computer that long (I hope).




We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

That seems.... kind of like a long time. Did you select "Timeless" units by any chance?

Or, is it possible that your computer clock think that it is 2009 instead of 2006?

On a P3, it should take around 20 days or so max I would think. I've never seen longer than that.

To me as well No, let's see.... Ok, so I stopped it, and restarted it.

So now it says 12500 frames annd it's due to be complete April 8th, 2006. That sounds better. You scared it.
