I just installed the new SMP client on my dualcore computer. the new client is 100 times easier to install and run. i would use the new GPU client but it's only for Nvidia cards and the ATI version is TBA.

[bUMP]

Not using the smp client anymore since I upgraded to an Nvidia 460 GT since i was having massive problems with my previous card. I really haven't been running the gpu since it makes a screeching noise. i'm waiting on getting the 6 core 3.2 AMD cpu tomorrow.

oh yeah, BUMP

bump.

I've finally gotten F@H on my quad core, and when my mom's computer gets going, I'll run it on there as well. Brings up a curiosity question, since it's been years since I had the opportunity.

Can you run multiple computers under one account for F@H and still get credit for both?

need some bump!

Sorry I haven't been folding lately. I've been mining bitcoins instead. Unfortunately my power supply couldn't take the load from my maxed out cpu and graphics card so it died and took my motherboard with it :cry: Once I get a couple new parts I'll be back online. Also, notice how ATI cards are hard to come by? Blame bitcoins for this

Man, only 10 active right now?

i should point out that my forum name has changed from "the prophet of mephisto" to prophetik as listed above.

i haven't been installing FAH for a while on my builds, which is why my numbers are down.

I installed this on the Mac, assigned my username and OCR's team number, and it says that it's folding, but I don't see anything on the OCR stat page. Do I have to wait or something?

Yes. Once you complete your first work unit, you'll be added to the team automagically.

Holy smokes. I didn't think this thread would still be alive after all this time.

Well, as always, feel free to join and save the world one work unit at a time!

Good thing it's alive, too, because I had a question:

I downloaded and installed this on my Mac a little while ago, but I've never really opened it or fooled around with it. But just today, I checked out the process threads because my computer seemed to be making a lot of noise with the small amount of activity I was doing on it. Sure enough, FAHCore was running at something like 300%, and the process would always return whenever I canceled it. As I mentioned, I haven't opened the FAH software for months, so I don't know why the thread would be running, but I didn't want the thread to be running without my say-so, so I uninstalled it.

I'd be interested in running FAH at night when I'm not using my computer, but I want to enable and disable the software at will. Is that possible, and if so, how?

You can just quit the program like a typical application any time during the day, and it won't be using CPU. If you have the Web Control page open when you do this, a notice will pop up telling you that Folding@home has been disconnected.

If you don't have the latest client (7.3.6) installed, I'd do that too, and uninstall any older clients. The older versions of the program installed as "Folding@home". Newer versions install as a folder names FAHClient and an application names FAHControl, so you have to uninstall the old application as well, not just install the new one.

Folding@home is still very much alive! I have moved a good portion of my dynamic computational farm which is partially used for FAH over to the OverClocked Remix Team.

Being that 6 years worth of posts can all fit on one page, I think it's time to give this topic a bump.

Something I saw jogged my memory about Folding@Home, and I was wondering if the OCR team was still a thing!

I reinstalled the client on a few computers, and it's pretty amazing how many points they are racking up compared to so many years ago when the thread was started. After having a couple PC's running the client full tilt for probably a couple years, I managed to get around 600k points. On my home PC, a just above average home built 4 year old PC with a 7 year old GPU (which the F@H client can utilize), if I ran it full tilt, would get that many points in about a month. If F@H hasn't inflated the points, it's kind of amazing how much more power PC's have. Moore's law, etc, etc...

The client is so much nicer too, and one install runs both the CPU and GPU.

Anyway, just thought I'd bump the thread in case anyone else wants to reinstall the client and get folding!

This is still a very relevant program, especially with the recent quarantine developments globally.

Here's a little something from Tom's Hardware that I saw had been aggregated by SO earlier today:

Indeed it is.. can't believe my name is still in the OP as a contributor to the original team. Might have to get back on this..
