Hi all.

I wanted to try out Folding@Home for a second extra comp I have. I got a PM from Smurf Pimp and so I decided to use my second comp for it.

Here is the thread I used to get started=
http://www.motherboards.org/forums/view ... hp?t=33399

I had a few questions-

When the graphical view of the Molecule keeps changing and at the bottom of the window dialog box, it says WORKING....

The WU Progress says 10/500 (2 percent). This took about 20-30 minutes. Is this a normal rate or is it slow?

I am also behind a firewall but I dont think that has affected anything.

Am I on the right path?

10-15 minutes per percent is about a day per WU which is quite good for a 1.4 on a 500-framer. Since it has been able to get a WU it will be able to put the result back. As long as you have put in 33258 for the team number everything is OK.

Indeed, thanks for joining the team and supporting us. As to the molecule continuousally changing, that's normal - it's just the view changing.

ok so lets say that my dad needs to use that pc that is running folding@home.

He rarely goes online but lets say the time comes up when he does.

Is there any way I can pause the folding?

If I close the program while it is folding, will it start back where it left off?

You can pause it and it will resume at the same spot, but it can run while you surf. I multitask and even play games some with it running.

Just leave folding running - he won't notice the speed difference. As to shutting it down, and it picking up - some work units do, while others either reset, or request a new one when they are cut off halfway though. The best method is to pause folding when you do this, that way nothing is lost.

so he wont notice a difference even if I am giving 100% CPU usage dedicated to Folding@Home?

EDIT: ok nm, i just tested it, it works fine while surfing the net, no difference.

Ill leave it running then!

Exctly my point. Even playing games you won't see much difference (unless you have onboard/useless video...)
