Essentially toss out a scope of how wide your technical knowledge of Distrubted Comuting and Folding out. I'm curious how far it goes.

i think i'd be afraid to blunder, and prove myself an ignoramous! i feel that i'm learning, and that is a better position to have.

getting a bit off topic i would say! smurf_pimp has the magic pm recruitment touch though. pm'g in excess can be like spam, and this would be a negative.

so this weekend was quite a situation w/ the servers crapping out. it would be interesting to analyze their data log to try and locate just what happened. of course, it would be interesting to just find out what kind of equiptment they are running, and how it's configured.

i think uploading affects downloading (goes to a specific server ip address). once you get a certain type of wu, it pretty much stays w/ that one. this is even w/ a certain #protein as well. if you're running the 638, and 639 type wu's, you can expect to get a bunch before moving to another #'d protein.

you can try and manually upload the wu at completion w/ the -send all flag, and then delete the fahcore_65.exe, queue.dat, config.dat, work folder, machineindependant.dat files. there is another flag called -pause that is supposed to upload finished wu's, and close folding upon completion. it might be the flag to use. i haven't tried this flag, so it's an unknown. here's the flags list for review:
http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegrou ... guide.html
use the -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9 flags, and restart folding. be certain to redo the config, as this was wiped out when deleting the config.dat folder. this might be too much to ask for, perhaps, and might end up w/ an anonymous id if not config'd afterwards. if you want to hassle w/ it, it will more than likely fetch gromacs wu's. i've performed this, this past weekend, and it did not fetch any gromacs wu's. the gromacs AS was down, and after the first attempt, i just let the tinker wu get worked on. i was surprised to find that the ask before send setting was ignored, and even more surprised to see a gromacs wu downloaded. so much for probabilities of behavior.

the *110 server was down again earlier today, and they gave a projection for being back on line this afternoon. afternoon more than likely means PST USA, so it can vary depending on where people reside.

btw, the wu i deleted (not supposed to do this) was a #681 tinker, and the second one that i just left to complete was a #682 tinker. it was a couple of hour window that i received the tinker in, and after that they brought up a back up assignment server for gromacs, and my other comp just sent in, and fetched gromacs wu's.

so if it's wrong to delete wu's, it's not if the wu is completed, and some reconfig manuevers are made w/ o deleting any wu's. the objective is to not actually delete wu's. the -pause flag might work in that effect. disconnecting internet connection, closing client when wu is completed, adding -send all flag and then doing reconfig manuevers after wu is sent in is the more ethical approach. some creativity can be used to keep from deleting wu's.

if you want to research the -pause flag, go right ahead. just post what you find in the process, so that we know for future reference (finding ways for a more ethical approach) :wink:

i posted a question at FAH forums regarding the -pause flag. seems like a nice feature for the windows users:
