    Yes - seems to have been a good week all round. I've finally cleared the decks of all my AMD stuff and the 840/x64's are doing 700ppd each so I'm actually fully contributing this week.

    I also think I've figured out why my P4 machines weren't getting QMDs all the time - the automatic routine was only allocating 480K of memory to each thread and you seem to need 512Mb to get QMDs all the time. Manually adjusting those to 512Mb each seems to to have had the desired effect.

    It's also great to see us hit #54 - roll on #53!

    Sorry, sah. I can't help it, honest. It's just that we're a bit more productive that ya'll. I guess I'll be meek about it.

    Attention ladies and gentlemen of OcUK Folding (10). This is BillytheImpaler speaking on behalf of Team Hack-a-Day (44851). I would like to inform you that should current trends continue, we will take over the No. 54 cell in 12 days time.

    I noticed :(

    At least someone is getting decent WUs. I think the P4 is still getting QMDs but the AMDs seem to be getting piddly little WUs - I've had 87 points from 4 WUs today :confused:

    Also, my profile is only showing 3 active CPUs in the last week, looks like some dipstick has switched off the rig (my San Diego) in the sitting room at the flat :mad: (I'm stuck offshore until Thursday and can't do a thing about it.)

    Having said that, even at best, my PPD would only be about 700ish so I would struggle to keep up with you anyway - well done that man :) Stomp on!

    Stan :)

    /Eyes up dual core P4s and wonders if he can justify the cost

    Not a bad week for me considering, been doing a bit of QMD on A64 testing the last day or so, will probably take another day or two to get the final results. Then back to normal.

    Update:

    I have ordered a 4400+ dual core to replace the 3500+ (also 2Gb of PC4000 RAM and a 512Mb PCIe graphics card - and a few other bits and bobs) - another grand gone, just like that :eek: Gonna be some machine when she's finished though :D

    Hopefully that, along with the output from the new laptop will edge me ahead of Trick again in a few weeks.

    I'll still be left with the 3500+, 1Gb of Corsair PC3200 and a 128Mb PCIe card, so when I get paid next all I need is a case, PSU, motherboard, hard drive and optical drive and we're off again :D

    Stan :)

    I said that 3 machines ago - and I've got a 2.8GHz P4 521 sitting here awaiting an ABit AA8 Duramax motherboard. I'll run them naked until I can pick up a cheap case ;)

    I'm not sure I'm into all this within-team stomping. It's a team thing.

    I might rename all my machines anonymous for Team 10 - that should result in a fairly mighty stomp on week 1!

    Maybe on the 2nd of May 2006 (That's when I should go top 5 on the team).

    After that I'm not going to be able to stomp anyone ever again so I might change my name and start again.

    yeah i'm getting more than usual too - they are probably messing around with the decent WUs at the moment and we're going through a time of rubbish one - it'll get better though, it always does

    well either that or KE1HA switched so much power back to folding that he's got ALL the good wus :eek: :p

    i would imagine that we're in line to get a few new projects released as there's bound to have been some slacking off over the christmas/new year period by the stanford folk

    hope you get some better ones soon - i'm assuming you have large WUs and -advmethods (that one is argueable as to it's good/bad effect) enabled already

    Woot, I'm back :D

    Got three CPUs running, one 24/7, and two during the day. I keep getting little WU's as well, which is mildly annoying, but for some reason my linux box gets the 600 pointers. I got another one the other day. My Opty is advmethods and big WU's, but I get little 40 pointers. The linux box is Big WU's but not advmethods, I think.

    Funky.

    edit: My mate might be running F@H on his two P4's soon too :D

    yes it has been said that the 600 pointers seem to come a bit more regularly without -advmethods although when i've tried it it's not made much difference, besides at the time most of my rigs were still happily picking up the 364-pointers which are the best by far for my rigs

    if you keep getting the same rubbish wu's over and over then playing with the config is hardly gonna make things worse (though best to do it early on in a wu just incase the client throws a wobbler and loses your 95% complete WU :eek: )

    edit: a handy tool exists which edits the image path for you - can't remember what it's called but it's listed in the folding community forums 3rd party programs section
