Lodis,

Getting back to your offer of a switch/hub - thanks again, but unless this new Belkin wireless router turns out to be a bust, I should be able to get along fine without it now.

Your offer was most appreciated, though.


[listen... hear that splashing noise? that was my ppd landing in the WU 2102 toilet... i'm gonna have to wear a dress...]

:cry:

Whadda you talking about QMD's? That's what you get for becomiong so one dimensional in your folding. Next time buy an AMD or three instead of all those intels. hahahah!

Wait, what am I saying?? I only have Intels... doh!

Lodis,

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

True, true on the P4's. I've only got the one X2 3800+.

I'm starting to plan my next build, but frankly, unless QMDs or something similar return, no matter what I might build, it won't be enough to stay ahead of the competition. The way I figure it (loosely), about 45 days like yesterday and I'll be pulling up the rear in terms of who gets to one million last.

I'm just doing every little thing I can to squeeze every last WU out of my boxes - lots of swapping WUs around (based on FAHMon benchmarks), and I'm about to do some additional tweaking on the Pentium D 830 and that AMD box I mentioned above.

It's hard to talk smack when you can't deliver the lumber.

I honestly have not clue how I am able to maintain a reasonable ppd. The only nthing I can think of is that most of my machines were always doing non-QMD's already. I only had like 7-8 QMD machines so I only lost about ~1000ppd, not bad actually. I have begun collecting parts for my next build, this one is all AMD.

Dual Opteron 240's (as soon as TW ships 'em)
GIgabyte 7A8W-sumthin; sumthin'
2 GB registered PC3200

That 'lil pooflinger should do more put-up than shut-up. Hopefully it will be enough to get past AL and at the same time hold off the Dino's and Mike.

Well now my laptop is down. I have known the cd drive was failing for the past few months but now the damn thing will not even boot. The HDD is crap, now I have to buy both a HDD and a cd drive, can't really reinstall a laptop without one, ehh?

Frickin' Dell! Some of their machines are rock solid but I have also replaced like 7-8 HDD and a few mobo's with them this past year, now my personal system takes a dump. arrrgghh!! M1, we are down a p4 3.0ghz for at least a week, take advantage while you can.

It's a bit like a car race... your tranny just konked out, but I can't take advantage since mine is stuck in first gear!

I've begun a gentle lobbying campaign at work to get my THREE YEAR OLD CRAPAQ Laptop - PIII - replaced. They've decided to go with HP, and the procs are Pentium M... that ought to be a nice little bump over my 50 PPD PIII. But since the company is stretching everything where possible, it might take 6 months.

Too late to help in the quest.

:cry:

Good grief, SM! Have the folding gods decreed this marathon is gonna last until December?

These low points days (and days and days and days and days, etc)....

SUCK OUT LOUD with fries and a pop!

AL isn't even bothering to sneak up on me anymore... he's walking up in broad daylight wearing tap shoes and whistling the America The Beautiful!

Are you sure it was AL?
I've never known him to carry a tune and
since his bowling balls now weigh more than he does
I doubt he can carry them any more.

I don't make this stuff up.
Those are words right from the bowlers own mouth.

Another part of what you say that has me doubting it was AL.
He was always into ballet, never tap.

Might be an Al impersonator.
Ask him something like,
What are you getting from your OCed H2O cooled rig
when you run a 2386 in both your cores?

If he just says, "huh, what". I was wrong, it is Al.

The good news is with all the competition, we'll keep adding to the high achievers amongst the team. :D

I just hope Team Dino gets there first. I wanna see monkeys in dresses damnit! :twisted: (Okay, not really, just want them to lose to Team Dino!)
