200 Work Units Completed

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Sep 09, 2004 11:41 am

Great job guys! We have gone from dead last place up to the top 10% in a matter of weeks. Hopefully our pace will continue to pick up as more people join our folding team.

Not only will this help build our community it will hopefully help out the medical research teams by getting data faster. It is likely in our lifetime that some of the very people on this forum may have their life impacted by some of the things that we today are folding and trying to understand.

Awesome!

The current one that my computer is working on has 1000 frames. Huge compared to the others that I've done.

I hope we get more people! I'll try to point some friends to our team.

it's kind of weird how the frames work. the one i'm on now has 2500 frames. i did one yesterday that was 5000. another computer here did one that was 10000 frames but it was one in less than 8 hours. still another one here has only 250 frames but has taken all day and is still not done.

that is why it shows i only have 2 CPUs running when i actually have 4. i'm sure it will update in the next day or so. i want to make it up to the top 5 with the cool people. :)

You guys are going to make me spend all my $$ trying to get faster CPUs to keep my points/WU ratio high. I hope that adding two new P3 866's will help out my score.

Not sure which one that was 'cause it completed this morning. It took me like two days to complete, minus forgetting to have it open last night. I think each frame took like 2-3 minutes to complete. I've got a new one with 5,000 frames on frame 567, but this one will complete in 42 minutes. Some take forever, some don't take long at all. Like this one, .6 seconds per frame.

I gotta say though, the 1000 frame one gave me like 160-200 points.



Edit: Weird... it's down to frame 419 now, taking 15 seconds per frame, and 19 hours to completion.
