really bad spelling there. I suppose you're lucky, or the tinker supply is drying up (yay!)

i've noticed this too but not to the extreme of an hour for a frame. everyonce in a while it will go from my usual 9 1/2 minutes a frame to about 20 - 30 minutes for a couple frames and then back to the 9 1/2 minutes.

dunno what to say about it though.

Nope. I'm not convinced of there being any advantage to the -advmethods flag. For example my dual box has been running for 4 weeks without the -advmethods flag and it has only picked up one Tinker in that time:-

It is actually crunching another Tinker right at this moment so that makes 2 in 30 days.

yeah, but you'll see that you're getting all tinkers right now. i've run advmethods, and haven't seen one tinker, except for the time that the adv server was taken offline. they brought some wu's back for testing, so i'm back into gromacs (after deleting everything except for folding executable, and redoing config, and using -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9 flags).

look at the team member breakdown at www.statsman.info and you'll see who isn't using -advmethods flag!

Aussie, the protein series #210, and less are all tinkers, and the #600series except for #683, and 684 are all tinker. also include your original registration as well, and you've done 76 Tinker wu's to date!76/397(100)=19%

i did a couple myself in the beginning when i was just figuring things out, but haven't had one until the recent dry up of adv wu's. 3/159(100)=1.9%

I've been getting mostly all of the 300 series lately, including a rather tasty one that's only 50 frames (/250, adv by 5), and is worth 51 points. It may be advisable for you to turn on the Advmethods flag aussie.

i prefer to recommend/ suggest, and lay out some info to back up claims- and then let people make their own choices.

yeah regardless, gromacs are in increments of 1% w/ 100% for total completion. some have more steps/ percentage increment than others. they also vary in the total amount of steps. there seems to be a rounding off in the graphical version. for example, a lot of the 300 series seem to be 51pts, are 2,500,000 steps, and are processed in 25,000 step blocks/ % completion. for some reason the graphical version shows a smaller total#, and increment #??? :?

not sure about the strange duration length to process deviation though. it would seem that something is using the system resources. how could this be determined? some kind of an enhanced log recording app?

Sorry bout that. As to the 2.25 m step ones, they round to 250 or 2500.

2.5mil (not 2.25mil). anyway, it can be good to take a rest from looking at the screen all day.

perhaps you'll have sweet revenge, and correct me when i err :P

yep, it's 2.5. However, why it shows at 250 and 2500 is beyond me (500 too)
