    Got the itch again...

    I referred a friend to the hardware forum for a new PSU the other day, and obviously had to come check on my old folding buddies over here. Just reading a few threads got me itching to go at it again, and within 10 minutes I had the SMP client and GPU client going on my new machine. Checked my...

    Back again?

    Hey guys. Saw something about folding and logged back in to see how my borgs had been doing, and decided to start up again. Its been a while and I'm just curious what the state of the program is like nowadays. From what I've been reading it seems like most people that are serious about it...

    HALP! SMP client

    I feel dumb cuz I used to be the one helping people, but here's the deal: Tried to install SMP console client on a q6600. Followed all the instructions on the FAH site. When I check the log, it says it loaded que successfully, but it isn't downloading anything. fah.exe is allowed by the...

    Someone, please threaten to kick me!

    To help get me back into the swing of folding, I'm gonna need some form of competition. Anyone here on the forums around me want to throw down? I'm all about competition, and I'm all about finding a cure. :)

    Computer shutting down issue, PSU?

    I've been having problems with my computer lately. Randomly, it will just shut down. Not a windows shut down, it just goes down like someone pulled the plug. And it doesn't restart, it just shuts off. I've done memtest, I've pulled the MB out and checked for shorts, I've swapped video...

    Logitech G15

    How many people here have a Logitech G15 keyboard? I was thinking of trying to write a program that gathers data from FAHlog or from EMIII to display on the LCD. I was just wondering if anyone else would put it to use. I'll probably make it anyway, because I'm selfish and I like coding...

    Looking for a Battle...

    Allright, I'm looking for some excuses to start a borgfest. I'd like to start a little competition, since I'm out of the 1k PPD battle. Anyone have any ideas? I'll keep track of stats and what not. It'll give me a reason to keep checking the forums and stay involved. Whos up for something?

    Error setting up FAH

    So, I'm trying to re-borg a couple thigns, trying to get back on my feet, and I went to a computer that I've had FAH running on for a long time, and I get an error during setup. I do fah504-console.exe -configonly, and after the first 4 prompts, I get a Windows error. It asks if I want to...

    There goes my production.....

    Well, things are changing at work, and I just had to shut down about 20 or so borgs. I'm basicly down to the few I have at home now, so production will seem to cease for me. Its gonna suck seeing myself go down in rank instead of up :-\

    I think it died, but I'm not positive

    Allright, I've got an Intel motherboard (got it from a promotion, doesn't really matter though). The other day my little bro told me the computer wouldn't turn on. So i open it up, and check it out. When I hit the power button, the fans start to spin but then die immediately, not evn an 8th...

    Has anyone on the boards here had any "wow, its a small world" moments with any other members? Viper and I were talking about finally getting me the [H]ordeBowl box, (since i was absent for a few months), and it turns out we go to the same small community college. We've probably been on the...

    T33 Callout

    I don't know if he even checks the boards, but all along we've been pretty close to each other in the ranks. Our production is about even, and we're only about 10 or so ranks apart usually. So I'm proposing a race. We're both around the 250 rank right now, so we could race to 150, or 100, or...

    OK, forgive me for being gone so long, but what is YURT? BTW, I'm back. I don't really have a reason I left, I just got out of the habbit of checking the boards. I kept folding the whole time though, still have 19 active CPUs. It's good to be back. :D

    Holy Work Unit, batman!

    I just got a 414 pointer on my dual core pentium, and its taking almost an hour per frame! EM3 says it will take 88 hours to finish it. Thats a lot of time for a 414, don't you think?

    Whatever happened to the AMD QMD..

    I seem to remember about 2 months ago, people with AMDs were getting MASSIVE WUs, about 1200 pointers if I recall correctly. Were those beta units? What were the settings required to get them, and are they still getting them?

    UD Points?

    I put UD on one of my computers yesterday, and it has turned in 2 work units already. On the client it says i have about 300 points, but says I have none and doesn't even list me. But it does list other new people from the UD push yesterday. Am I just not patient enough?

    About the DC FS/FT

    I see in the rules it says you need to have 10,000 points to trade. Does that mean to be the one making the post about what you have to trade? Or: no one with less than 10,000 poitns can post in that forum, period?

    I just started, and I was using the graphic version. I hear that running the console version with EM3 is a better choice. Are my stats going to get messed up if I switch to the console version? and if I do switch, How would I do that?

    Beginning OC

    I'm sitting here looking at my old compaq with an athlon 1.3 ghz in it, not doing anything. So I decide maybe I'll overclock it. I look in the bios, and obviously there's nothing helpful there. Looking at the MB, I find a jumper that says 100mhz-133mhz. It was at the 100 setting by default...

    Not enough power
