Yah, 1 million PS3's out of about 400-500k are folding. Amazing maths :D

I wish I could work for Sony and put out random numbers. :smoker:

So at the moment there is apparently an issue with the PS3 servers and project upload/downloads.

My system was on all day and wasn't able to log onto the server and submit my WU that I finished around 4AM.

Oh and btw, I am still waiting for credit for my 1500 pointer :)

I have a question, Is there a Folding client out there designed for off-line folding.
example: download a work unit, load it to a PC that has no internet access, crunch the unit then able to upload back? I googled and searched but to no avail.

I know it sounds a bit odd, but.... At work I have 5 pc's with heavy horsepower that would be ideal for some kick-ass* numbers...

anyone? :)

not really. You can config the command line client to pull workunits without deadlines. I believe you can also set it up to pull down up to 10 WU to work on at a time. So, if they only occasionally have access to the internet, you can have it submit in batches.

Like I said, they lost it. Maybe some database glitch. *looks around for EP* :rolleyes:

Seems like they are crediting back some of the older WU's.

Now I am apparently only missing the 1500 pointers :D

Hooray for stuff and what not. \o/

On a positive note, our team's overall output has gone back up a little bit over the past few days.

Kudo's to all and if anyone is still on the fence, or has a PS3 sitting around that could f@ld, please join up :)

carpo, if you have a quad core, I would suggest looking at getting the SMP client working. The SMP work units are giving over 1000+ points per unit..

The quad's are beasts because the SMP client pulls WU's with high point counts.

Even a dual-core core2 will be able to produce 400-600 ppd depending on load and clocks.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
