Hello SPRC Folds:

We are currently in the #42 spot (or #41, depending on which stats you look at) in the overall list of Folding@Home teams, which is great! My quick guesstimate at this point is that we could climb as high as 27th or 28th; based on our current weekly production. Let's keep it up -- and then some!

C'mon folks -- you who have already contributed in the past, please keep going. There are about 93 active members (out of 147) and if we could get about 12-15 more machines producing, we could stay ahead of Slo-Tech! If ALL our current members actively folded, then we could probably get to the low 20's...

It would be even better to get more NEW members! It doesn't matter all that much about the speed of your machine(s), but what really DOES matter is that you keep on folding, day in and day out. I hope that we can get from 93 active to -- who knows, HALF of all the members of this forum?! Say, 500 active members? Please? :P

My comp is overly overclocked and is literally at burning levels to help the folding effort. :shock: 8)

Shame I only got 1 comp, but every little helps. :wink: I am climbing up in the last week from ~75. :lol:

Come on folks give it that big push!

big push? Okay, first I'll overclock this computer a bit more, get my laptop back folding, and then.... I'll get the folding farm running, and I'll write up how to do it to get the rest of you folding!

One of those inactive members is me, I posted 2 WUs under a different user name....

Hah. Zhentar, you make me laugh! Good luck with the farm, though. But it is becoming like Santa Claus. :P I'm just teasing you. :)

Yeah, my two machines are likely limited by the RAM I'm using -- it's "only" PC2100 CL2 and I only paid $30 for each 256MB stick... So, I'm happy with a 15% oc and I'm still running the *tightest* possible timings, too.

My third machine a "just" an Athlon 700 Classic -- no oc'ing is possible on the OEM (IBM) motherboard. I'm really pleased to be pushing out <1000 points in a week with ~4.65gHz of Athlon CPU's! 8) :D

On another topic, does anybody know how to do a LAN boot in Linux? My SusSE Pro supports this, but like a lot of things in Linux, I'd need a lot of guidance to get it working...

Actually I got 7 folding, but 4 of em are so slow it's never counting them all together. 8) (up to 9 days for a WU :roll:).
The other 97% of my production is being done by 5.06 Ghz total, so not that much more then you.
I recently bought a barton 2800+, and just that one machine has doubled my production.. :shock: I had it turned off the whole day last sunday, and look at my graph.. that dip was sunday. :)

Hello:

It also helps to get sweet work units! :D I've gotten five of the p910_vill_str0_rf units -- and these are 57 points and they complete (on my machines) in around 12 hours! Wow. Some 47 point units take over 20 hours, and some 53.3 point units about 21 hours...

Those p910 units bumped my average daily points from ~135 up to 175 or so, and basically took me into the "yellow" zone! I was peaking at ~950 points/ week and jumped up to ~1100/wk. So, I hope all the SPRC team gets a lot of the p910 units! ;)

ack, I just looked at my production graph... the predicted line is declining! I had no idea the thing was smart enough to read the forums and predict the soon to be failure of my hard drive (I'm trying to be as positive as possible :) )

On the up side, I will pass TRC-13 on Dec 13, 2013!

ooo, i hate you, you beat me too it! :o

i'm not sure how long i'm going to stay yellow, so might as well celebrate while i can. i got me three of those p910's and churned through all of them in one day :mrgreen:

Image

i've got a p4 2g running 24/7, and a handful of celery/duron at 700-something churning 8am to 10pm every day (hijacked the computers at the university library :P ) so that's about 5-something ghz... wow.

Yeah - those project 910 ones are marvellous. Seem to give about twice the point score. :D (And they are rated as 57 points, except I seem to be incrementing 58 points?)

BTW - anyone else having grief with the servers? 1 of my boxen has been trying to get work for over an hour now without success.

After I figured out what you guys meant by the yellow zone (thanks to Wrah's link) I found myself there too but sadly I slipped back into the green zone after 1 hour :-(

For the benefit of any newbie like me following this thread, I believe they are referring to the stats page at extremeoverclocking.com

Time to assimilate more machines into the effort...

Seems we made 40th! :D (Although OC Australia have vanished from 2nd so this could be a stats error!!)

Although todays stats have got me puzzled. My boxen have finished 57, 38, 33 & 57 pointers. The stats pages show me returning 2 units for 58.8 points, and another for 57. Seems there has been several problems @ Stanford, hopefully it will come right.

pps - now [H] has vanished and we are up to 39!! At this rate we will either be in the top 10 by morning or else we will vanish as well :D

Not so fast... there is something funny going on over at Stanford. Have a look at this. I believe that three or four teams in front of us have vanished from Stanford's stats pages (temporarily, one would hope).

Yep, stats are borked. Just read from the guy who does them at forums.extremeoverclocking.com. He says try again tomorrow.

Congratualtions!

We could also use more single CPU contributions -- all the "gray" folks need to keep on foldin'! :wink:

Well, I'm pleased to be yellow, but unpleased that most of my boxen seem to have gotten Tinkers recently (~24 hours for a lousy 20 points). AND, MikeC took over my position in the team roster. Watch out, Mike, I expect to put a couple of new lab boxen on-line in the next few weeks so rest easy for now but be prepared for my nipping at your heels.

Overall, SPCR is slowly rising. I'm looking forward to a metoric rise with Zhentar's farm on-line (with vibes of encouragement in hir general direction).

tragus, you're welcome to take your spot back any time. Any time that you can catch me that is ;) I usually have 5 machines on the go. A P3-1.1 Tualatin, an XP2000, 2 P4-2.53 & a P4-2.8. No tweaking whatsoever, just slap the win utility in place & keep all the systems on. AS long as I am not testing or publishing, they're folding. I have no idea why I should be so high on the list, maybe it's just because they're always on.

PS -- all the PSUs are APFC (I'm green too... :mrgreen: )

MikeC, I couldn't help but notice a big problem with your set up.

You see, under username your supposed to put "Zhentar"!

I'll at least get green when I get my farm running, maybe yellow, depending on how well the O/C goes. And I've got the adapter now, so your doomed!

Good luck with the farm.
