Oh, but of course the impressive performance of SethV10 shouldn't make me forget that Gitto just joined the club after over a year of dedicated folding. http://sfgames.clicksplat.com/images/folding/beer_mug.gif Welcome to the club, gitto we need folders like you, staying with us on the long run!

Does anyone keep a record on the shortest time from the first WU to membership of the 100.000 points club? peteamer ? Lacking any more official stats I think it's safe to guess that SethV10 just broke a record going from 0 to 100(Kpoints) in less than two months!!!! Very impressive ineed!!! Welcome ...

Thanks for the hint, ibear , but I don't think I'll go throught the trouble of changing the BIOS, especially downgrading it. The noise is just not cumbersome enough, it's really quite unobtrusive with the undervolted CPU. It could maybe become an issue if I were using it a lot at home (and if I got ...

I tried Centrino Hardware Control, and it doesn't allow me to control the fan on my X20. Fortunately the fan is very unobtrusive in the silent mode already. I haven't tried the newer beta version of this program (now called Notebook Hardware Control).

Hey, I'm really glad people like this color scheme. But the fact that colors are ever so slightly off from the forum background colors still disturbs me. The background colors entered (#EFEFEF and #DEE3E7) come out as #ECEEEC and #DCE2E4, and that's visible. What is not visible (to me) is that also ...

I think, as dukla2000 pointed out, the fact that fractional differences increase with load is suspicious. I expected them to decrease, as at higher load the CPU+GPU fraction of the total power consumption presumably increases. As a result, I don't think that this data can be interpreted as represent...

Stanford servers down?

Seems like there is no way for me to send work to stanford (or to get work from them) right now. I have two WU's sitting here for almost 12 hours now, computers idling.

And the worst thing is: until they fix it, I'll be stuck at 99.992 points :cry:
