    Current status: 120/1500
    If this is your first work unit (WU) then you do not have any points yet. The 120/1500 is the progress on the current project work unit.

    You get points for work units that are completed and submitted before that work unit deadline. It takes 1-2 days for your first submitted work unit to go through the system and then you will get a number that you can add to your profile and start seeing your contribution points.

    I use fahmon to monitor my projects, it gives you an eta of when the work unit will complete.

    Which brings up a burning question, how many computers do you have working?

    Comments on this post

    • JohnFrank agrees : 5 newer PC's 24/7, 1 older PC 24/7, 1 Mac Pro off and on (I also have 4 graphics cards folding)
    Three gigs for the secretaries fair
    Seven gigs for the system source
    Nine gigs for the coders in smoky lairs
    One disk to rule them all, one disk to bind them
    One disk to hold the files, and in the darkness grind'em

    I just completed my first WU. Hopefully my profile updates itself! Fold to cure!

    Well I have had those machines (with some minor changes along the way) folding for over 16 months 24 houra a day 7 days a week. Yes I do have a very small business (2 people) and I have them folding because it is for a great cause.

    The graphics cards needed to fold are the newer NVidia and ATI cards, a good card can usually fold more ppd than 2xSMP's on a good CPU.

    If you are trying to start folding or having problems just post your questions or PM me on this thread or in the DevHardware Devfolding forum (we have our main members there and there are more people there who will help).

    Thanks for giving it a try, hope you can get it up and running, remember just ask if you get stuck or want to know something, I will try and help in any way I can.

    The Dev Shed team is under Dev Folding team number 12912 - make sure you enter that when you set it up or your folding points will not show in the dev team.

    Congrats on 11,000,000
    Since you posted your WU completed and uploaded I have been looking for you to appear in the results, but have not seen anything yet.
    Check you client.cfg file in your folding folder.

    It should have some lines something like this:
    Code:
    [settings]
    machineid=1
    local=5
    username=Azure-Productions
    team=12912
    If these are wrong you may want to change them before your next WU. They only count to the username/team that was there when the WU was downloaded (not if changed during the WU).

    Let us know what is in your file.

    So how do you setup folding on your graphics card? I looked on the website, and couldn't find anything. Couldn't find anything in the client that i'm currently running either.

    Yea, I mean seriously Ebot, who could refuse you when buying that new machine helps Cancer patients? Noone

    Turns out since I installed Vista, I had to restart folding so I forgot to look at the folding status and it turns out it went to 2500 instead of 1500..currently at 1700, with 6 more hours i can get in today. And unlike the previous unit, these fold quick so I should have around 2100 by tomorrow.
