for some reason i received a #680 tinker WU- 5,000,000 steps- 400 frame 71 point monster for my p166mhz machine! 8O for some reason, even though i specified GAH WU's, i somehow got the mother of all WU's. i let it do a couple of frames, and the rate was about 3.9hr/ frame. it would have taken roughly 65 days to complete :? i then deleted it, and a couple of other files, and redid the config for GAH WU. the first one (#799) was completed in about 5 days, and was worth roughly 12 points. i have a similar sized WU that it's crunching away on right now. someone was saying that there are 600 frame WU's, but i haven't seen them on the list, but beta, and GAH WU's aren't on the FAH list.

I've been getting huge ones too... 2500's and such. i'm confused on the scoring though and what WU's are worth what....

also... under "prefered" i hardcoded it to FAH should i have left it at no pref or GAH? what's the difference? (sorry if this has come up before)

thanks for the info.

for your first question, check out the FAQ section of [url=www3.nbnet.nb.ca/jehovah/Main3.html]The Mb.org F@H Site[/url] to see why your WU is so big, i believe its question 18. To see how much each is worth, visit this link and match your WU number up with the one there.
I would say keep it at FAH unless you have a slow computer, GAH stands for genome at home, its a different progect altogether.

btw where did you hear about our folding team? we were trying to figure out who default_dave was on our list

for some reason i cant edit my last post so i'll put it here:
i just finished redoing the whole FAQ page so your answer is not question 18 anymore, it is now under the category Work Units

what are the system stats for this machine (i remember something like pII333, but noticed a reference to a celeron system).

the -advmethods flag will at present give you greater odds of getting gromacs WU's. -forceasm flag will give an extra sse speed boost as well.

due to Stanford U FAH using a 500mhz celeron w/ o sse in their benchmarking for points value and time duration, it favors the gromacs WU's for higher point value in the same time frame when compared to Tinker WU's when sse optimizations are utilized.

points=2x[500mhz celeron (no sse) time to complete any WU]
