    HELP Can't send for a month!!

    I have restarted the system, I have wiped everything out except the executable and still keep getting assigned to the same server. It would complete a unit and then say it couldn't connect. Is there any way to request a different server?

    HELP Can't send for a month!!

    C'mon guys I did the simple stuff - Yes I can ping the server, etc. I didn't know if something had happened over the last few months that they would continue to assign work but not accept i back.

    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?

    New 2665 WU's

    I agree, I've got several computers that I fold on until the warranty runs out before I'm sure they are stable and I'll give them to my family :) Would not want to pass out an unstable computer.

    How Many Boxen Do You Have?

    I'm surprised no one has complained about the poll being about "boxen". I'm buying (for work) quad processor, quad core servers. I just wish I could burn them in for the warranty period :) That's 16 fast cores in 1 boxen. I've got at home an AMD 2500+ that's 1 slow core in 1 boxen. Which...

    How do you fund your fold?

    Not to hijack this fun thread - But does anyone run THEIR machines at HOME to earn legitimate money, and thus allow them to qualify for a tax writeoff? For instance - do a CPU intensive render job for $500 and writeoff a quad core machine for $400.

    How do you fund your fold?

    That's one of my excuses also, but the live in son games 27 hours a day and I made the mistake of asking him in front of SWMBO if he'd like a quad for his birthday, if he'd fold. He said no. Kid's got some lessons coming

    Ubuntu question: how many SMP clients to run?

    I want a distro for headless folding combined with being a file server. I need things like a minimal editor, VNC, samba, NFS, networking, rsync but don't give a darn about multimedia apps, dvd burning, etc. Any recommendations?

    Power Consumption

    I've two of the older type, each was about $16. The new one is a little fancier, one of the "neat" things is that it retains prior measurement, which the old one did not. For someone who thinks a case just gets in the way of cooling, I don't need the fancy features.

    OK, update - Now FahMon is reporting a little bit better ppd for my 2 instances on 1 quad, but what's amazing is that on my AMD 2500+ with 1 regular fold on a 2606 it's saying 184ppd!! That's a 230% increase over the 80ppd 2 days ago. points are getting flaky!
