    Well... we passed 100,000,000 points with over 133,000 work units.

    I passed 40,000,000 and almost 30,000 work units.

    Is anybody else still looking at this thread?

    Yes I'm looking at every new post.
    Periodically I try to find a good paper that explains the advances due to the distributed computing project folding@home in LAYMAN's terms, but they are few and far between.
    When I come across one, I'll link it here.
    Y'all stay home tomorrow night and have a -
    Happy New Year!

    Yeah, I'm still planning to get back to folding at some point, but a $5000 shoulder surgery in a couple of days has put my finances on hold for the moment, so I'm still limping along on my Q6600 that needs replacing. Since I'm going to be incapable of working on my hardware for a couple of months, I really don't want to do anything that would hasten its demise.

    I had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff a few years ago. It was no fun for sure. But, that shoulder is now in better shape than my other shoulder!

    Yeah, fortunately mine's not a rotator cuff so I think the recovery won't be quite as bad. But when I dislocated it in my sleep I decided it was time to do something about it.

    Well, looks like our stats are gonna take a deep plunge for a while. I'll be turning off my little folding farm for a while. I moved back to Texas last year and started a new job as the IT guy at a company here, but they have decided to take the IT stuff and outsource it into the cloud... I think. So, today I became unemployed.

    Beep beep... anybody still on here? Hello? Is this thing on?

    I'm back out on Kwajalein. I may start up folding again here in month or two.

    Yep, working again. Actually, I got my old job back. The guy who replaced me when I left turned in his notice and I replaced him when I got back. Timing was perfect in this case.

    I'm a Field Engineer II in the Comm Center.

    We're out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, sorta. Marshall Islands, between Hawaii and Australia. All of my computer/networking stuff is still on a barge heading this way. I guess it has a few stops to make along the way. It probably won't arrive here until close to the end of September.

    We still have dial-up modems for internet access, but that is supposed to change soon, or so we are told... so we hope.

    I see that only 3 people are folding today. I guess interest has just died off, eh?
    I'm slowly but surely getting settled in at my new location. Thinking about folding again.
    Anybody with renewed interest?

    Stats manually turned off in preparation for early Tuesday morning shutdown

    October 22, 2013 by Vijay Pande
    One of our primary server rooms will be shutdown for service tomorrow morning. Most of FAH will be operational, but we’re taking the stats update off line now so there won’t be complications tomorrow morning. WUs returned will still get credit, but the credit will not show up until the stats update is re-activated.

    So, who is folding on Linux? I tried it previously but had nothing but problems with some 'newer' at-the-time versions. Maybe they have improved the use of their software with Linux by now. I'll try it out again once I get a couple more computers set up... oh... and once I get my network set up and connected to the internet.

    I've been encoding a lot of video, sucking up the CPU.

    I checked foldingathome and it's broken somehow - I'll get it fixed and get back in gear soon

    Thanks for reminding me!

    Can you surf out there on the island?

    There's a small group of people here who go out to one area around the island and surf, on the southwest side, generally. The waves aren't very big typically, but apparently it's enough for them to get their fix. ;-)

    As far as surfing the web... we still have 56K dial-up!! But some wireless hotspots have been setup for us and we are supposed to get 'broadband' somewhere near the end of the year.... like we haven't heard that before. Last word was that we might get 3 Mbps DSL in our rooms for about $40 - $60 / month. We are calling it the possibility of low speed broadband! Instead of finding a way for us to get actual high speed internet access, the mantra is mostly.... well, it's better than dial-up.
