The Big Race 21/05/06 to 19/06/06


[b]Day 04 - 24/05/06 Totals[/b]

[b]the Rest[/b]       26,136 +6,934
[b]3 Stooges[/b]      20,172 +4,339

the 3 stooges spend another day going backwards and lag behind by 5,964 points

All errors and ommissions are intentional :wink:

Curly

Thanks Curly.

I also popped over to say hello to Those Beefysworld chaps

Happy Birthday Fenix :cheers:

Nearly at you Drezha :devil:

Thanks for news Curly :thumbsup:

http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_overtake.php?s=&u=126658

You got another 19 days yet :smiley:

Glad to see the rest are piling ahead… Maybe they bit off more than they could chew? :wink:

Happy Birthday fenix :drink:

Thanks for the news Curly :slight_smile:

Thought i’d join in the fun too :cool:

Happy Birthday Fenix!

Looks like you’ll get my 31st spot as a present :smiley:

Come on in Nightlord :help: :lol:

Cracking effort team, the race has really caught the crunchers imaginations. I still think you’ll need a bigger lead though :moon:

Cheers Curly :thumbsup: just got a duron1800 back running that was a dead psu, still no joy with the MP2000’s though :cry: and Citylink are not delivering until tomorrow :frowning: Next week is pure 24/7 for EVERYTHING in the house as Beck and the kids are going away for a bit and leaving me in peace. That should make things a bit more interesting :devil:

DT.

Cheers guys!

6000pts behind eh? Looks like someone dropped the gauntlet prematurely! Still, I have a feeling they may yet give us a run for our money…

Of course time will tell… another 940 points in the next 24 hours for “the rest’s” cause :slight_smile:

It seems that I’ll have to turn down the overclocking I did. Temps were getting a little high for my taste. Its almost summer after all and the current cooling I have couldn’t handle the heat. Its not even mid-day and the systems were already overheating. Too bad I guess. I suppose I’ll overclock them at night to get some boost out of a days folding, however the temps have only just started to go up and soon it will be very humid… next time we have a folding challenge lets make it in the winter!

OK, one system live on Folding since last night. Had to change the username slightly 'cos Nightlord was already taken :(…think you’ll recognise it though :wink:

Anyway, if I’ve got this right, there two FAH Cores running on a P4 with HT. How do I tell how long they will take and how many points for each?

On dual core linux boxes, can I just run 2 instances or is there some clever tricks that I need to perform?

Gonna start switching the farm over tonight…a total of 21 CPU’s right now, plus some others that may find their way out of the junk box. :smiley:

Exactly the same on dual core linux as windows, just remember to increment the machine number for each cpu/instance when you run the -config parameter.

DT.

You may also wan’t to add the -local flag to make sure they fold in their proper directories. As for the time they will take, it depends on the work unit you are running. You can download various monitors such as FAHMF, FAHMON etc to estimations on completion time or you can calculate it yourself. open you fahlog and get the time difference between the 2 frames ie:

[22:14:30] Completed 125000 out of 12500000 steps (1)
[22:29:31] Timered checkpoint triggered.
[22:44:31] Timered checkpoint triggered.
[22:59:31] Timered checkpoint triggered.
[23:08:26] Writing local files
[23:08:26] Completed 250000 out of 12500000 steps (2)

= aprox 54 minutes per frame x 98 (frames remaining) = 5292 minutes / 60 = 88.2 Hours / 24 = 3.7 Days
assuming of course you run for 24 hours a day and you dont run anything else on the computer that will make the frame times go up.

Good timing Nightlord, I’ve just been poking the Aussies over at Beefysworld

http://www.beefysworld.com/forums/showthread.php?p=57376#post57376

Seems they are just ramping up too.

Maybe I’ll do some bang per buck research

We still have to put out 40,000 more points per week to just match them… that may be a tall order… plus Free republic is on a rampage behind us as well… we will probably drop to 98 before climbing to 94 in the next 4 months… keep it up!

Thats just under 6,000 extra per day then.

Not unachievable I reckon

Phew, don’t want to have to do all that again…

20 cores added to the fray :smiley:

Me thinks they could be added to the Stooges, that’s of course if they want them :wink:

We’ll see once everyone gets their folding rigs in order and we start posting some serious points!

Nice choice :wink: 20 cores should mean you’ll be pushing my 25ish that are not all dedicated crunchers. Going to make it interesting to say the least :smiley:
