    it should allow ANY other application first priority to any function of the computer. it is supposed to only use vacant CPU cycles. i would assume it would be the same for the time its downloading although mine doesnt even take a minute to download another WU

    Downloading a WU takes nearly no time. Uploading a finished result, I gather, can take longer: Files can be up to 5 MB, or larger if you allow it big ones.

    What's that link to the comparison charts again?

    [edit] I found it http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/tea...=52533&p=12

    Team Wildkow (RANK 1184) has just been passed by team Priuschat (RANK 1181).

    Yeah, not surprised that Priuschat moved up another notch this morning, but I am shocked that team wildkow is still at 1184. I would have thought they would be around 1500 or so by now..... :p

    I've been trying to be especially kind since your assimilation.

    But, since you asked...who's your favorite among the current Demo[n]cratic Presidential candidates? :unsure:

    Finished my first WU last night (took slightly over 4 days) and am finally listed as a team member. Several others, who also have only one WU, have more points. I really couldn't care less about points, but I am curious about that. Perhaps they had bigger WUs?

    People on the [email protected] chat board suggested running the SMP client, but the notes on the site suggest running it on 4-core machines, not 2-core, so at least for now I'll stick with the GUI client.

    I think Hillary is the best politician so she would have to be number one, then probably Joe Biden and last maybe Barack Obama.

    BTW I got my fast computer up and running finally! I hope to get about 700-1000 ppd out of it.

    Daniel I am running the SMP client on my Core2 E6600 machine and not having troubles and so is GeoRox. I hope to get 700+ points per day. Congrats on getting on the board. BTW are you running two clients on your Core 2 machine if so did you make sure to give them seperate machine ID's?

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(bigdaddy @ Apr 24 2007, 10:15 AM) [snapback]429086[/snapback]</div>
    I think there are a couple machines out there still folding that I can't get too to change team numbers. One of them is ancient, I would guess the client is a good 5+ years old. It's on a Linux server running SME/E_Smith 5.xx something, so no wonder it's still running. The other one is a Windows desktop at an insurance office where I setup the network. I used to have 8 machines folding there but one by one they have crapped out in the last two years. I have no access to those machines anymore so until then they will still be folding for team Wildkow. I think I have 8 machines folding for team priuschat now but only five ever show up in the stats at one time. What's up with that?

    I read as much of the FAQs as my brain could absorb, and in the end was more confused than ever. So I just installed the one GUI client. People tell me I can do stuff, which I see no way to do. Supposedly there are options that I do not see. And I am very reluctant to run a program that I do not know how to control. The documentation seems to be written for computer geeks, and although I am computer savvy, I am nowhere near the level of geek, and I do not understand systems-level stuff. I think I'd need to see a clear, concise users manual (doesn't have to be a print copy :D ) before I'd want to install the SMP client. And as long as they're saying not to install it on 2-core machines, I'd want to know that someone had been running it for a while on a machine identical to mine, before I'd go against their recommendation.

    I tried to read the FAQ on how to run two simultaneous clients, but I didn't understand it well enough to feel at all comfortable trying it. I depend on this computer too much to risk installing programs I do not understand. It's not that I mistrust the programs. It's that I mistrust my ability to set them up properly.

    From the [email protected] FAQ. . .

    My client got assigned to the IP address 0.0.0.0. What's up? From time to time, we may not have work that matches the requirement of every platform. When that is true, we will not supply you with duplicated work that really isn't needed. We'd rather have some clients idle and repeatedly rechecking for new work than busy for long periods working on something that doesn't need to be completed. Even though your computer may see occasional idle periods, we still value your donations. If this continues for an extended period of time, be sure to ask for help because that's not normal.



    Also the talk on the net is that many [email protected] servers are down since before yesterday.

    On October 13, 2006, I posted the topic about [email protected] and now just 7 months later the Priuschat.com folding team is moving into the top 1000 out of 30K+ active teams and well over 70K+ total teams.

    <div align="center"> :D !!! Congratulations !!! :D </div>

    That's a really good thing because what we are dong here is not some cutesy little trick for your computer to do while your not using it. It is real science that will tell researchers how to cure some pretty horrible diseases. But there is still a lot to do and a lot of computing power is still needed. So if you haven't join up yet, please consider doing so, the life you save may be your own or a loved one.

    I see we do have a few more folders that have hooked up with the team in the last couple weeks. I would like to welcome you to the team and thank you for participating. :)

    To the regulars I'd like to ask if there is an auto installer they know of out there that we could configure for our own use? If so maybe then we could ask Danny to put it in the file area?

    Danny is it possible to get a button or graphic put somewhere on the site so that our efforts are recognized and maybe attract more attention to the cause?

    Once again Congratulations team Priuschat! :D

    It was yesterday or the day before that mine finished a WU, and was unable to upload it for more than 13 hours. It downloaded a fresh WU and began working on it, and every little while it would try and fail to upload the finished one. Finally it was able to send off the completed WU.

    But it was working on the new one the whole time, so there was no time lost. I've completed 3 and am working on number 4.
