State of Our Folding

Post by skier » Mon Mar 16, 2009 12:55 pm

it is not looking particularly well for LR [email protected], right now our average is 118,000ppd, down from our November average of 230k, and only 111,000points in the last 24hr, and look at our Top 20 Producers:

4 producer.jpg (161.05 KiB) Viewed 2153 times
i should not be in the top 5 of producers :shock:

since November(which yielded a nice 6.92Mil) we've been in a sharp downward spiral, dropping by 630,000 in December, 600,000 in January, and 1.7million in February to producing a little under 4 million

i know some people have their reasons, but the team's been taking quite the hit as well!

I can't seem to get the 9600gt to fold in vista 64. I'm not sure what the problem is.

Trying to decide what vid card to get (150ish budget), and I have yet to find sometime to get Q6600 set up (this last month I've been like a one legged man in an ass kicking contest) and i7 bench is in pieces at the moment.

A lot of our large folders dropped dramatically. I'm left to just folding in work (2 Laptops and a Quad), but Windows Folding is inefficient compared to Linux

i have been up and down.. i have 5 systems at home and one at work able to crank out points.. the problem is when i get my utility bill and its over $250 (it was $340 in feb). The majority of that is for gas to heat my place. but i can control the electric being used. and its nice to be able to knock $100 off the top by just leaving the systems off. In the spring when the temps get nicer and i dont need to run the AC i will crank them all back up for a couple months. I try to keep at least on rig folding at home at all times.

For the past two weeks my 8800GT has been out due to the residents of the dorms having to unplug for spring break. Should be up now/soon.

I've had issues with VMware Player, but its most likely due to the work network. Works fine otherwise. Haven't tried GPU2

<-- still here kicking as much ass as the current work units will let me with 5 videos cards 24/7. In november, those 5 video cards were 26-27k easy, and now you see I can't even keep it at 15k.

Work units are changing for everyone, that's why we aren't getting passed left and right. Obviously, we are down a few people and a few pieces from other people, but we're doing alright against the competition. Just need to hold our own and get everyone back "healthy" and we'll start to move up again.

My wife put the smackdown on me...our electric bill was going through the roof due to the folding and some other things. Her income has been steadily falling with the market and is now down 50%+ so I'm not going to argue with her.

I have a new cooler for my 8800gt on its way - think it should be here Wednesday or Thursday. I also have been keeping my PS3 off. We have noticed our electric bills being higher also, but am still plugging along - we have gas heat and our heating bill has been cheaper than our electric :shock: I think some of it is because of the nice plasma screen/surround/directv/ps3/wii/ps2/living room computer using about 1000 watts when we are watching tv :mrgreen:

Mike

My numbers should go back up by the end of the week with the new cooler installed!

I'm not sure why my numbers have been tanking. I've got 2 9600GSO's running 24x7 and a 4850 that runs most of the time as well. I have a feeling that I need to take a closer look at the GSO's and see what's going on - every time I check them they are up and running though.

I'm not doing so well either, atleast not as well as I was doing when i started folding a few weeks ago. Is anyone else taking a lot longer on these latest WUs? My last few have taken forever, compared to some previous ones. Same point award as the shorter ones though(1680). Maybe I don't know enough about how it works though.

Started it up last night when I got off to go to bed,
[08:59:30] Completed 18%

and now

[18:13:35] Completed 68%

I am running again. Just checked my stats and saw this:

Did I get 2 WUs totalling 3,360 points?

Yes, the WU's I referred to that are taking 14hrs to complete are worth 1680 pts each!

Another low point for me...This weekend I'm moving my computer room downstairs so I will probably be down for the better part of the weekend!
