    Points have been coming back for a few hours, but there was a big spike in the Hourly Production Table for 2.14, 6pm.

    I thought I made a mistake once, but, of course, I was mistaken.

    Think they released a set of experimental... I usually hit between 6k-7k a day, and spiked to ~27k at the same time (no new boxes).

    Go back up here and read the recent posts. There was a network outage at Stanford. It took them a while to get the points back up to the stats servers. So we all had a few point spikes.

    There were no stats/points for over 2 days. And, fortunately they weren't lost.... just delayed.

    I probably had a bunch of zeros last week anyway because my UPS flaked out while I was on vacation and shut down a bunch of my PC's with extreme prejudice.

    Back up and running though. Now I need to decide whether I'm going to replace the UPS because it seems to be working fine again...

    You get your wish for a short bit...

    Shutting down the boxes at work since today is my last day. Then in a week or so I'll shut down my house ones while I make the move and wait for ISP to hook up the new place. Come January I'll be back full force though!

    Dang it mhanson (techwise), you're staying one step ahead of me!

    These days, I'm only doing GPU folding on Windows machines. My CPU results from any computer ---will not upload--- !!

    I think 'they' have implemented an upload cap on this old, stupid, 30 year old, crappy, unreliable, stupid, old, crappy 56K dial-up system.

    If I could upload CPU results.. who knows how far I could be!!

    Well, I upgraded my desktop at home and I try to keep my PS3 running now that the cold weather is in. I now have pretty much every machine I have control over running. Not to mention I have a bit of a competitive spirit. Hopefully soon, I will be able to upgrade my workstation at the office. That should really kick it up a notch.

    I have to be careful here. Every time I think things are going ok... something stops working. But, I'm testing out FAHClient 7.1.43. So far, it has been running -smp for a couple of days on my Dell XPS M1730 laptop CPU and it's actually uploading the results. I also have it doing GPU folding and that's going ok also. I'm seeing over 50,000 points in the last 24 hours.

    Tomorrow is my day off, so I may convert everything to 7.1.43 and try some more CPU folding.

    It's an interesting observation that GPU folding gets less points, but more Work Units. I'm getting 50 to 60 work units per day. Where you are getting around 20.

    Oh, and I hafta fold nekkid 'cause it's kinda hot in here!! j/k.. sorta..

    Gonna need pics to prove it either way.

    I just ordered 2 nVidia cards so I can do some GPU folding and I overclocked my i5 to 4.3Ghz. I may need another fan in my case and a bigger power supply too. Gotta keep up with the Jones'.
