Just wondering if any of you write folding monitors & such. I'm thinking about writing a monitor, but I can't seem to find anything to go off of. I've searched but haven't found much information on writing apps for it.

Guess its going to be a stab in the dark til I get it right....

Write a fold monitor? Wow, someone with the much coveted "extra time." Cheers to you, but EMIII really rocks.

There are other programming needs that the team has though. Poke around and you might find something that will help pass the time you seem to have :D

I just like to write differnt things. Keeps me learning. Not that I have 'extra' time.

Well what other needs have been mentioned? I haven't seen anything posted.

needs

Well, my boss wrote a perl script so all our linux boxes at work fold the right way. There's a bug in the linux client where it idles still using 6% of the cpu and still using the I/O. This script will stop the fahcore process until the cpu load from other apps drops below a set minimum.

Windows doesn't need that because the client idles properly. But some of the other functions of the script might be nice- for instance if the client has a problem connecting to the assignment server, the perl script will switch servers. It does this by attempting to connect to the gromacs server (gromacs flags -forceasm -advmethods) or shuts off those same flags, restarting the client with or without these flags usually gets a connection to one of the assignment servers pretty quick.

Another useful function is to delete the work folder when a client goes idle from a bad work unit.

Good! I'm getting some feedback. This is what I wanted to see.

Where would I learn about all the switches for the console client(win32)?

Cool. I've already started laying the idea out.

Hopefully I'll have a mockup for me to stare at soon.:)
