    Q6600 prices creeping down?

    Fry's has it for $180. What's the folding community's thoughts on how fast this will fall? I see them introducing the Core 2 Quad Q8200 for a $203 soon, do you think that I could find another Q6600 for say $150 by September?

    How do you fund your fold?

    How do you fund your fold? I'm limited to stealing beer money. And that's for O'Douls. I've got one borg worth about 100ppd with a son. The rest are excess cycles at home. I'd like to start doing some GIS work that would require a stable of quads to flip bits when a job comes in. And fold...

    VM problem

    Just tried to install VMware on the new Dell 530 Q6600 w/ Vista Home Basic. It's my first VMware install. At what appeared to be the last step the machine rebooted (without asking), and continued to reboot. I went to the restore point before VMware and it seems to work now, but w/o Vmware...

    What happened to my PS3?

    My PS3 had been churning out about 900ppd (3WU) reliably at 194 to 204 watts. Somebody in the family turned it off for a couple of days. Now it's back on saying it will take about 10 hours for a p3426, but it's only using 118w. Did they throttle the system down?

    slow p1487 on linux

    One of my room heaters, a Sempron 2400 running Linux, is crunching on a p1487 (1161 points) and is taking over 3.5hrs per frame. This will give about 78ppd. Seems low to me, I run console, forceasm, got plenty of RAM. Is this usual? Any suggestions? Happy Thanksgiving all! Fold On!
