so far im about 40-45% though about 60 DVD's have about 10 films left and the rest are epsiode discs and they should take long 30 min eps :) - 4 im doing tonight are progressive and they dont take very long - suppose i could do 1 night back ups one night off one night folding :)

edit: least i know i got it working right after i remembered to run it as admin, and looking in take manager there are 4 processes running
and i have told it to d/l work units over 5mb - see if that will help me with a few points, atm the encode is taking 97% :)

edit2: apart from the message working, does it update how far its got in the work unit?

edit3: if i kill the app will it continue from where is left off like the gui version or will i have to start the work unit again ?

can someone explain that to me please - is that saying i have wasted near 20 hours trying to to do a unit and it wont send it, because if that is the case i can see folding @ home being wiped from my pc
 
is there a vista gadet for folding because all the ones i seem to find are geared towoards dual core - not quad - and they always give me the error of no being able to find the folding exe even when i give it the full path
 
Run 2 instances of Netryder's Vista Gadget for dual-core systems. Point to the correct paths and you should be good to go.

I don't think it works with the SMP client, but I haven't used it so I can't tell.

Hope that helps somewhat.
 
thats the version i tried, kept saying it couldn't find the path, and i tried it with

C:\Program Files\Folding\fah.exe
and
C:\Program Files\Folding\FahCore_a1.exe

and it wouldn't have any of it :(
 
Just point it to the folder and see what happens.

I think it pulls data from the .txt files, not the actual .exe so simply pointing to the correct folder SHOULD work.
 
well that aint what it says in the readme, but will try it anyway - bound to be a 4 core version of the widget soon i would think :)

looks like its working properly now - had to make myself owner of the folder it was in :/
 
well i was getting a few issues with it even after i changed perms - so i have installed it to d: drive but even though (after my short test run) it said i had 2% done the gadget stayed on 0% :(

edit: seems to be working again but they are all saying 3% which i don't think he right - i will add screen shot in the morning

The gadget samples separately from your .txt file. It picks up information at intervals so it is unlikely to be 100% accurate. :)

It is there as a matter of convenience and presents a relatively accurate visual representation.
 
i don't think this is too bad for about 9 hours worth of work :)

is there an x64 version out - i doubt i will be using freebsd server as they dont have a version of bsd - i will have to mess about and put linux compatibility layer in :(

The good news is our team totals and average are rising again. I would like us to reside around 20k a day if possible :)

But 15k is nothing to sniff at.
 
well although i had done 46% seems after the x64 install something went bad with my back up so will have to do it from 0%
 
I have a desktop under my desk here at work that I've been using as my main folding machine. Finally replaced it (was an old P4) with a slightly newer box - but the nice thing is the new box has two physical CPU's which means I can now run the SMP client. Been finishing the SMP Workunits about every 2 days meaning I push my daily average to ~700-800 points per day..
 
how you stop the smp client without it always getting narky and deling the work unit you have 50% done, eveery time i stop it after its been running overnight, it says that it was shutdown imporperly and there is a file_io_error, and that is deleting the work unit and continuing.

But nothing seesm to happen and the cpu is idle

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
hello peeps... is been some time since i last came here.

Rest in peace my friend, been trying to find you and finally did in the worst way imaginable.
