In spite of the firewall, virus scanner, and proxy server we have in place here at the office, my users will find a way to get it and run it.
>sigh< Jump drives are turning out to be an Achilles heel.
As a third party looking in, I can see no folding banners etc. like I'm used too. For exmaple:
Keebler I can only see this on your signature:
Thrax- I can only see the first 2 lines:
, if I partition my backup drive with the install disk, what does it do with the data already on there.
??? I think to replace a partition, Windows install must first delete the old partition and does not save the data. Bu…
OK- it sounds like a proprietary BIOS. I don’t know a lot about those but, you should still be able to check the system battery by checking the date and time in the BIOS. If it looks weird, the battery may be bad. You can check by putting in the …
I highly doubt that FAH is directly causing this issue- but you might try the mouse driver (uninstall/reinstall- possibly go to the manufacturer for theirs). Have you also possibly tried another mouse?
Also try this Reference
i wish i understood everything in this thread
you guys must be on some serious salaries!
I can't speak for everyone else- but I can tell you that I have to take every dollar of mine seriously-

No, I'm just running one instance of the client.
Then it is running properly like Leo said. If you run only one instance on a dual-core machine, only one core of resource is assigned. If you are using a Windows OS, by d…
Are you allowed to build it yourself?
Have you considered Clovertown X53xx series or are they too pricey? If you build it yourself, I'm pretty sure these would be a better bang+fold for your dollar.
I don’t know if it’s related, but I can tell you what I’ve seen a lot of.
Every time I start-up my PC, FAH is launched and set to run at 100% using advanced methods and has access to all memory (2GB). FAH runs best right after I do so. H…
Yes, it is an improvement and yes, it is still better fold-for-the-dollar than most any other path I can think of.
I think the upsides are evident:
The PS3 has made an undeniable impact on the project. A 2-to-1+ jump in folding capability in …
I think you may be verifying this number:

It seems that the PS3 is more than 10X powerful as an average PC. Why doesn't it get 10X PPD as well?

First off, this almost makes me sorry for suggesting posting there. I certainly did not intend for you to be bushwhacked and I honestly thought that the issues and timing involved might have been related.
But I also can’t think of a better place…
Well done, Gargoyle- this article just about covers what’s out there. The 23rd date I had also read- it is the European release date- but no one would explicitly tie the two together.
Set aside the gaming aspect of the PS3 for a moment.
Sony Computer Entertainment has also released a little more information concerning the Folding@Home client:
While a little more informative than previous announcements, the client is still not released and a…
I think you are not alone and there are some other funny, possibly related, things going on. I would keep my eye on this thread. You may even want to post for your team.
I have a suspicion as to what has happened- but I'll let Vijay respond to …
While I can’t help how Dell models their business, it doesn’t mean that an optional OS can’t be done and put into a business model.
I just kind of like the idea of an optional OS and think that it is both doable and reasonable.

I think we may be more ready for machines without an OS. With the waters muddied by Vista, perhaps vendors may make the OS and their various flavors and editions optional or selectable with “none” being an option with a commensurate discount. I kn…
FAH can also be greedy and stingy about memory. I don’t know a lot about video and audio editing, but I am quite familiar with how much resource it can consume. Think about it if there may still be complaints and issues.
Actually, I’ll be interested in seeing what the performance difference is between the Linux and PS3 clients. Unfortunately, we may have to wait until April before some decent comparisons can be made .
