Hm... that WU that I thought was going to take days to complete because it was 12,500 frames only took a day, but some of the smaller ones take many days. Wierd. Reminding, my team number is 49831, and you can e-mail me at steveborthick@gmail.com if you're interested or need help. Links to the F@H website are at the right.

Another WU finished. Team ID is 49831. Not much to say. It took so long because I often times turned CPU usage down while I was using the computer (because it slowed my comp down). Anyway, my next WU is 12,500 frames, so that'll take a few days.

I'm still looking for teammates.

The WU with 50,000 frames from my last post finished just now. It took a little longer because for a while I had the settings set on 50% CPU usage, but moved it back up to maximum available. That's five now, and still noone to join my team. :-( It's okay, you will all see the error of your ways soon enough. ;-) Reminder: my team number is 49831.

Also, my next WU is only 400 frames, so this should finish quite quickly. I'll probably be posting again tomorrow.

April 4th, 2006

Our power went out because tornados were trying to form- aye aye aye. That's so annoying when you're close to finishing something and the power goes out. My computer was at 11,000 something frames out of 12,500 frames when the power went out for hours. After the storm settled down I decided to go up to Schnucks because we didn't have electricity and I wanted a Red Bull, but when walking up there someone had a Johnny on the Spot porter potty knocked over in their garage (because there were construction workers there). You have to feel bad for the people that had to set it back up. /:-D Anyway, the WU was restarted when our power came back on and finished today while I was at school and my computer's working on another one. I'm still looking for team members to join. If you join, you'll go on Team Chikin Kuiarajin's team list, along with up to two personal website links, your e-mail, and you can submit journal entries to me (as long as they have something to do with Folding at Home) and I'll put them up for you. That is, of course, if you support scientists finding cures for the sicknesses of Earth- of which, you all should.

It'd be nice if this team could grow.

Tweaks to speed up WU folding time:
1) Change your computer settings from "Adjust for Best Appearance" to "Adjust for Best Performance"... that will save RAM for your computer which means F@H can use more.
2) Turn off your screensaver, system standby, and system hibernation.
3) Leave your computer running 24/7.
4) Turn off any user accounts that aren't used ("Guest" account for ex.) because those use up RAM by being logged in.
5) Turn off your Firewall(s). Firewalls slow programs down because they have to check them first, and F@H is supported by Google, so you have nothing to worry about anyway.
6) Keep off Web Accelerators as the compress and decompress files which use up lots of RAM, meaning slower WU length- plus, they could lead to corrupted files.
