Dang, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 1400 I have at work will not work with FAH. No CUDA. I had hoped to put this PC to good use when I'm not here - it's fairly powerful. To bad I cant put the servers to work - but I realize now that the GPU is more important than the CPU, or so it appears. If my unused laptop at home didn't put out so much heat I'd run it 100% on this - maybe during winter I can, I'll try tonight.

I just wish I could get mine folding like it was a few days ago. I have no clue what happened, as I went from around 7000 to the mid 5000 :confused

Sorry about that.

Simply put, I was doing about 18 - 19 and sometimes more clients/WU work units a day and it has now dropped to 13 - 14

If you check out this page you will get an idea of what i was talking about

Thanks, I'm catching up on all the terms and speak... slowly but surely :yesnod:

Nope. Everything is fine.
Had some friends and co-workers over for the Florida, Oklahoma game.

One of the guys liked the backup machine and said how much. I said $800. 20 minutes later he was back from the ATM with the cash. :yesnod:

Hence the new backup machine specs below.

The two 8800gtx's are no longer folding for me.

You do realize that using a work computer for folding without express permission can be construed as a conflict of interest, right? I certainly don't want to see you jeapordize that.;)

I'll get something to replace the ppd loss eventually. (Too busy with work atm, to bother with it.)

For now i'll just slowly coast into the team lead over the next week or so. :yesnod:
