it's actually not the same exact wu, just another one in the same wu series. check the full protein name in the fahlog.txt file, and you will more than likely see a difference. stanford only gives out one wu, as opposed to multiples of the same, so if it is the exact same, then either the wu was bad, and the server reissued the same one, or there are server errors, which is something that would need to be brought to stanfords attention. look up the wu name of the one just completed, and the name of the new one just to be certain.

there's an entire progression of small instances in time in one moment being analyzed, and it is those small instances that are the wu's that we are working on. they are trying to isolate the actual moments of when a protein folds, which is in an extremely small instance of time. it's the misaggregation/ misfolding of the proteins that make up the dna molecular structure that is considered to be the source of certain diseases like mad cow, alzheimers, ect... it's definitely a new frontier that we are participating in. here's a link to the science involved:

Okay, to clarify matters, I am currently working on unit p683_TZ2_NAT_EXP

i see what you mean, the first one was Project: 356 (Run 3, Clone 46, Gen 11) and the second one is Project: 358 (Run 3, Clone 0, Gen 11) so close, but yet so far lol

no, what i meant was the wu's will both be for example #356 protein molecules, and the full molecule description like the one that Ripshod posted will have to be referenced, as it's the full wu id that will show any differences for what would otherwise appear to be the same wu's. i'm not sure how many different work units would be under the #356 protein designation, though the specific wu stats can be referenced to get an idea.

edit: #356 top 200 here:
http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/projectpage?q=356

counted up all the top 200 to get an idea of how many were handed in under #356, and i calculated that to be 7,316 wu's. there must be quite a few more as the lowest amount handed in was 17wu's at 200th place.

I'm 7%(or 4.5hrs) away from being the first to complete this one. Take a peek:
http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/projectpage?q=p683_TZ2_NAT_EXP

*edit*

But with this unit taking 60% longer to complete it should surely be worth more than a pawltry 9 points more? I have to admit to a slight error, those 56 pointers were actually 51 points, but there's still a massive difference. :oops:

Hooray!! I've finished my unit and downloaded my next WU, this one's ticking away at a nice 1% every 15mins(approx), and is worth 51.4 points.

THAT last unit was hell, definitely a lot more work, and definitely not going to be completed by me again! Phew!! :twisted:

Just curious - what's the list of flags you're using anyway?

try tossing on -forceasm and -forceSSE it'll give a nice boost (or should)
