Back at it

Post by steve6787 »

Been a long time, but I'm finally getting interested again.

Have been folding with the PS3 the last few days (1 WU/day) and have now added my secondary PC. Hope to get the main rig up sometime soon.

According to FahMon, I have a Gromacs 4 GB worth 600 points.

Specs on this system are:

Win7 x64
Intel E6550 @ 2.33GHz
2GB RAM
Cruddy onboard Intel Q35 Express

It's good to have you back! I have recently started folding again as well, mainly just out of curiosity to test out various GPU's that I have and see what I can squeeze out of them.

Until recently, the last WU that I turned in was in 2008! I was surprised to see that I wasn't at the bottom of the ranks from being gone that long. Sadly, I see that many of our other members stopped folding a while ago as well.

You think another recruitment drive is in order? Or is it a bit late for that?

Is it OK to post an occasional [email protected] team recruiting message on other sections of the forum, such as general, recommendations and tech support?

EDIT: By the way, where did all of my avatars go? I needed to make some new ones anyway....

I'm still alive, but haven't got any machines running [email protected] right now, they are all doing something else until the end of 2012. I'm hoping to start folding sometime in the new year though.

Well, I'm back at it, just a couple of WU's a day from now on, electric is just too expensive to get back full time sadly.

..electric is just too expensive..
I hear you, Pete.. same here! Power is around 15 to 17 cents per KWH. But I will provide at least 12~14 hours daily for the [email protected] project.
All those work units help in the quest to resolve mankind's maladies.. in our life times!

Back again :D . Just 2 machines right now, I'll see how it goes for a couple of weeks before I make any commitments.

Cheers,
