Hey fellow folders. I've been looking for new team to join since my current team is doing well ( I fold under "dallen" and want to know if you guys/girls want some help? I use Linux almost exclusively and want to fold for a linux based team. I just want to know if anyone is serious about folding on this team?

Currently our Folding team is pretty empty (5 members, 1 active recently). I myself prefer and have gone back to it since they have now released RC5-72.

Althought once I have my second linux box up and running I will be running folding on it.

Please feel free to join if you wish, the more the better :)

Hi Everyone,

New member to team 11311 here.

I am running at "renice -10" here. Anything faster and I can't do anything else with my Linux Box (running with Linspire). It took more than a week at nice -20 to complete my first WU (before joining the Linuxathome team). Too bad I can't transfer those points.

I also use a second box with the strait Debian installation (resently upgraded to "Sarge").

that's all for now,

Fred O'Grady :)

Post subject:  Increase your folding progress.

Hi everyone.

To increase you folding productivity, I suggest you give your folding application more of your cpu time.

If/when you are away from your box, you can "renice" to give folding more resources.

Here is how I do it.

1. First, I find the PID of the folding application by running "top"

In my case, I found that the job (VIRT) for folding was # 25644.

2. Then I "renice" it, to -20 like so:

renice -20 -p 25644 -u root
renice -20 -p 25644 -u enthalco (depending on who I am)

3. At -20, I am completing 4 folding frames in about 30 minutes, ( 1 Frame every 7.5 minutes), a WU in about:
400 frames / WU = 400 * 7.5 minutes = 3000 minutes (/60 = 50 Hours)
50 Hours/ 24 = 2 Days.

4. At nice -20, folding is using about 48 % of my cpu time (I also nice seti@home to -20).

5. Admittingly, I can't use my computer for anything else while seti and folding are using all my cpu time. I have to "renice +20 -p 25644 -u root" to get anything else done.

I would be interested in knowing if anyone else is hasing sucess with folding or seti.

thanks for your time,

Fred OGrady
