That would be the one we were trying to figure out.

I only looked at it briefly after Augie said something. Didn't catch it was 62 at the end and not 66.

If you look at the very bottom of the folding list you will see BILLMCC66 with just 2 points.
I re-installed folding and when i started the application i must have mistyped it, and it was a couple of days before i realized but by then i had accumulated points so i left it as BILLM66.

If you can get her to use your name it will give your points a boost ^*^

i am not worried about my points, i stopped for almost a year and in 5 days jumped 3 positions on the Stanford site. when i get my system back into it i will have 2x 280 GFX cards and both the SMP 64bit and the GFX core folding... the CPU will be an i7 at 6.4GT/s so i really am not worried. i will get back into place fast enough.

better she gets some points for herself, rather then me steal them from her.

Well, I managed to get VMWare 1.08 (2.xx with web installer is arcane to me ATM) :confused with Ubuntu 8.04(being faster than 8.10 for now) running with SMP. SMP has pinned two cores and is running nicely.:) According to what I've read I should be getting some 700PPD extra doing that. I won't know for sure until I can compile FahMon on Ubuntu which is evading me ATM. :bashhead

I can't wait until I get my second GPU going but this is success enough for me ATM.:) I'm quite surprised at how similar Ubuntu is to Windows on the GUI end but still quite a mystery as to the CLI though I'm slowly getting it.

'sudo apt-get install augie'! :lol:
