Here's a link directly to the Team OverClocked ReMix page on the FAH webpage For those of you that don't know, FAH stands for Folding @ Home. Full information can be obtained here: http://fo

Guess Covid gave this a boost the past year. Glad to see people still fighting the good fight.

I think I know what the problem is. I don't have even have one WU done yet. I think it only puts me on the list once I have at least one completed. I have it running on two computers at once, so I'm sure one will finish up soon enough.

On a more educational note, I have convinced my school to run folding@home to help the cause. I recently lost someone to cancer, and a friend of mine's father was just diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I'm glad to say I'm a part of the solution.That, and I can ask my friends the following qustion:

"Hey, whats your computer doing right now? Downloading porn? 'Cause mine is curing cancer".

Yes, its so sad. My grandmother to lung cancer {But she smoked... heavily}, a friend's father to... something cancer, I'm not sure, maybe colon cancer, and a few years ago, a 2nd or 3rd cousin, to something that I have no idea what it was.

At any rate, though, at least we can say we're doing something about it. It's what brings mankind together as a civilization, not just a species. Advancement, and improving the quality of life is what defines us from the animals, and anyone who refuses to be a part of the process is no better.

...Pick-up line? Never thought about it that way. I was just bragging to my friends!

Sorry to hear about your loss. This is a great thing to have installed though, and it's for a great cause.

A back on July 1st I found a lump on my left testicle, and we all feared for the worst. After a trip to the Urologist and an ultrasound on my testicles (very weird) it turned out to be nothing but an epidimal cyst. After that scare, I got most of my friends and some of my family to start running F@H, they aren't part of any group, but still, they are helping to find a cure.

I think we should all try to get people to install and run F@H, even if they don't join our team, just to help find a cure.

Were you not aware that you can simultaneously run two f@h programs on dual core processors.

Wow, nope. The thought did cross my mind not too long after I posted it, though. I do have a question for you about the console version. Do you have to start it running everytime you restart the computer? Or is it more automatic like the graphic client? I think I messed around with it a little, but couldn't ever tell that it was running; the graphical one gave more feedback, so I went with that one... guess I'll mess around with it some more.

You can set the console version to run automatically or manually depending on your preference. And if you want to run more than one client on a single computer, you have to use the console version. You can run only one graphical client on a single machine.

It is kind of confusing installing and running two programs at once, so I can tell you how I did it. The first thing that I did was uninstall my graphical client after it was finished with it's work unit. Then I went to Folding@Home folder in program files and created two new folders and named them Home thread 0 and Home thread 1. So at the address bar, it would look like this:

C:\Program Files\Folding@Home\HomeThread_0

C:\Program Files\Folding@Home\HomeThread_1

Now I downloaded two windows f@h installers, one console version and one graphical version. First, I installed console version in my HomeThread_0 folder. While installing it, I think the console version would ask if you want to configure advanced settings, say yes. It would ask for basic things like do you want to download WU bigger than 5mb, do you want deadliness WU etc.; the important part is when it asks for machine ID. I think the default machine ID for graphical client is 1, so you should give your console version an ID of 2, but I input 5, just to be sure. After the installation is finished, wait for a few minutes. You can check if you have installed console version properly or not by going to windows task manager and seeing if f@h appears in the processes. You can also see if cpu usage has climbed to 50% or not.

The next step is easy. Just install the graphical client in the HomeThread_1 folder and configure it to your liking. After few minutes you can check if you have both clients installed properly by seeing if you cpu usage has gone to 100% or not.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

If any of you are having problems sending finished WU's and have recently installed IE7 then you may have to reconfigure the client and tell it to not to use IE settings. You can read the details concerning this issue here.

Also, use this as a reference guide if you don't know how to change the settings on console client.

And yes, I had a good thanksgiving. Mainly because I had finally had the opportunity to sit down and finish final fantasy XII. Good times.

I finished a 20000 unit WU a while back, and now it's working on another one.

Would I be able to go into my mom's windows account and set up FAH to work for us on her account?

Just try doing it and then you can tell the rest of us if it works or not.
