Okay, you twisted my arm. Call me Member #6. :)

(Now, if I could ever get off the computer....)

Look at all dem mutations!


I have a "backup" machine (so slow that it almost is backing up - 266MHz :D ), networked to my main machine. I seldom use it, but I should be able to run it on the grid almost full-time, n'est-ce pas?

Of course Ringo the Lone Ringer is in there twice?

My evil twin insisted on his own account. :D

(you can run multiple devices)

I didn't read the instructions. :D

I suppose I could retire one account and then "un-retire" the device on the remaining account? I'll be glad to do that if it will help your calculations. :)

My machines are chugging along so slowly that I wouldn't be "competitive" even as a unified force. :D

I'm going on the principle of "every little bit helps". And if I can help a good cause by doing absolutely nothing....

I saw my first HIV module on my work computer today. You might want to dedicate one machine to that program

Is that the FightAIDS@Home project? My equipment is too puny for that.

I guess I'll just stick to my protein origami. :)

For FightAIDS@Home, the minimum requirements are:

At least a 550MHz Intel Pentiumâ„¢ processor or equivalent Nope
At least 250 MB RAM (with virtual memory enabled) Nope
600 MB Hard Disk Drive with at least 50 MB available for use
The ability to display 8-bit graphics at 800x600 resolution
An Internet connection with minimum 40 kbps speed
Operating System: Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP


Not even on my good machine. :D

Testimonial: The human proteome folding program runs painlessly even on my ancient and decrepit machinery. So there's no reason why people with 21st century equipment can't do it.

The Peon Report
Mostly a bump. :D

In case you thought I was dead - one of my machines was dead, but I replaced the CMOS battery and it's feeling much better now. Both of my machines are working on problems that will take well over 100 hours to complete. My alter ego should be reporting tomorrow.

So, all you Christians coming home from church, how about signing up? :)

Now I want to know what Ringo is running???

"Running" isn't even the word for it - more like "walking". :D

  1. 500 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 10 GB Hard drive
  2. 266 MHz, 192 MB RAM, 2 GB Hard drive
Apparently they take pity on us poor folks by giving us more points per result.

(The bad news is: one of my monitors just died, so I'll only be "running" one machine until I can fix it or replace it.)

Re: Who needs a monitor?
RAZD writes:

just keep the monitor on the 'hot' machine.

Hmm.... I had to shut down the "old(er)" machine to move the good monitor to the "good" machine. If I reboot it now, without a monitor, how will I know if it is running? It might be a day or two before it reports another result to the grid. :)

ABE: the good news is: reports of the monitor's death have been greatly exaggerated. It has risen from the dead and is now running normally. (In case of further near-death experiences, it will reamin connected to my secondary machine.)

You can expect results from both of my machines sometime in the New Year.:)

Re: Move over, Asgara; the bronze is mine...
How about a gold star for perfect attendance? :D

If I read your spreadsheet correctly, it appears that my time per result is higher than anybody else's. Does that mean they're giving me the really, really BIG problems? :D It's not unusual for me to take well over 100 hours to complete a result.

It also appears that my efficiency is pretty good. So anybody else who's still running at twentieth-century speeds need not be discouraged from joining up.
