View Full Version : Another new folder...
:D Hi Everyone... after reading and learning for the last month or so, I'm up and running on the box described below. :cool: Started folding late last night and I hope to be able to contribute to the cause. I may bring my wife's computer online as well, but I need to change out her HSF before we can do that. Anyway, I've learned a lot just reading these forums, so thanks to all of you.

Cool! It's always nice to get another folder! What name are you folding under?
Folding as T. J. (very original - my name!). But now I have a question for you all. It looks like my colsole tried 46 times to connect to send work this morning - is this normal or are there still server problems?
Yes this weekend has been bad for downed servers. don't worry, from time to time the servers go down for about 10 hours max. Then they are up and running again.
Welcome to the team!!
Ok. It was just a case of being excited to join the team, start a new project, all that stuff, and then having the server down was a disappointment. But we're folding again now... Thanks for the welcome!

Welcome. Thanks for joining the team.
This has been a bad weekend for server problems. It's not always like this.

It took a month to read up on it? :)
We're all a little hesitant at first but it's addicting after a while.

Always good to have a new blood on the team. Welcome to the team. Now crank out some WUs. I'd like to see some new blood on the team to pass me.
Welcome to the team T.J. The team is growing now.
Included is a little something to show how important even 1 folder is. Check out the total for the day for DSL Reports and overclockers.com! It's neck and neck.
:D No, it didn't take a month to read up on it. That month was from my first decision to learn to build an overclocked box (this was my first attempt), solving (mostly) some cooling problems, and finally deciding to fold, rather than run SETI or Genome or something else. I have to admit that it was the enthusiasm that your team brought to the project that lead me here rather than to some other team. So, again, thanks for the welcome.
Now, can anyone tell me, is there any real benefit to running multiple instances of FAH? I have two consoles running (from separate directories), and it seems to be taking roughly twice as long to complete the work. I'm running electron Microscope to follow my progress and it appears that each work unit is going to take around 8 hours instead of the 4 or so hours it took for my first packets.
Thanks, T. J.

If the servers go down, which they do occastionally, while one client is waiting to send work, the other can fold at full speed, making your downtime little to none.

Running multiple clients is also necessary on multiple processor systems... just make sure you run each instance with the -local switch.
