Because he is special
The faster your computer finishes a WU, the more points you get. I'm averaging only 157 per WU which is really sad. Got 4 P4s and one Dual core Amd. If I take away the Amd machine, I'll probably average only 100.
I'm beta-testing the SMP client. The folks at f@h grant more points to reward the testing, plus to counter any lost work when the client crashes. I've noticed mine crashed a number of times, but (so far) the client restarts itself. When everything goes well, my Mac Pro finish 100 frames (1 WU, 10,000,000 steps) in a little less than 20 hours.
Cool. That P4 has been working and working and working. Pathetic actually that it took that long. 40 sec/frame.
Considering we cracked 4000 less than a week after Scott announced this (and not two like I thought), maybe we will make 1000 sooner than December. Wee!I think we'll crack the top 5000 in the next couple of days; the top 4000 will take maybe two weeks. If we can get more members to participate, I think the top 1000 can be achieved by the end of the year.
I don't have a feel for what a "frame" is. I see "steps" in my logs; at 12 minutes per 100,000 steps which works out to ~139 steps/sec. I can't believe that frames=steps because that would mean that I'd have to become a full-time Mac Fanboyrockymtnhigh said:Cool. That P4 has been working and working and working.

How on earth are there two of you? I don't understand. I have both of my machines set up as rockymtnhigh - is that ok?As I feared, there is another Foxbat on the SatelliteGuys.US team, and he is me. The FAHStats sites rolls up my credits, but not the actual Folding@Home. At least all the points are going towards our Team total. Oh, well, in a week, the original "Foxbat" should in the past and the "new Foxbat" moves ahead of it.
Yeah, you can have as many machines contributing to the cause with the same Donation name. My problem was changing the donation name on my one machine from "Foxbat@SatelliteGuys" to "Foxbat". Folding@Home hides the "domain" (everything after and including the "@" sign), but it is present in the client files on my machine.How on earth are there two of you? I don't understand.
