Oh, you want to disable "Autorun" in Vista for your CD-Rom now. The Virtual environments won't play nice with it.

Go go david and pika!

On one hand, david is from UGN so he automatically has my support. On the other hand, pika is in the GTA so we are living in the same area (let's ignore Mississauga vs Toronto for the moment).

So I am going to cheer on you both! Besides, this forum needs more life. Let's see some fireworks!

Let the race begin! 8)

Mississauga vs Toronto shouldn't exist. We're partners in crime, or perhaps Mississauga is the atrophied and ignored little brother, and lets leave it at that : )

Well check this out. Our favorite Intel fan :roll:

Ah, and for the record, I have been threatless since the beginning of the contest 22 some odd hours ago. So you better get that double Xeon up and running quick :)

Hmmm I have found another worthy opponent a few rungs up the ladder:

http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/ ... =&u=320822

Looking at his PPD history I could probably take him. I wonder if I should add to the contest? Might keep me away from UGN for too long...

You have that thing clocked pretty slow if it's only doing 1 to 2 WUs a day. I still have 1 big WU coming in for the day. Should hit in 30 minutes.

As I've said, they finish fine, they just dont send to the server. I've tried every trick in the book to get them to send, but they've all failed

Ugh I'm having the same issue. I've had three big WUs fail to show up. :cry: One Saturday morning and two last night. This sucks!

Looks like UGN is having a problem as well. This has happened before. They'll probably all show up at the same time.

Pikaporeon, u need to push your paddles more faster or else you will never be able to even enter into Darwin's threat list. :lol:

Go for it guys, i know Darwin is still relaxing there, but once pushed by Pikaporeon, we will see some good power moves from both the sides. 8)

The PPD gap is only 600 now, and I'll keep gaining as it's only just begun to see the wonders of my main box.
The Xeon goes online tomorrow so that should be good for a couple hundred PPD
[it's an old netburst Xeon with hyperthreadling lol. But it has two processors so it should still be able to dish out some SMP goodness]

Remember he is still in the relax mode, once he starts ramping up, you will have to get more aggressive. :)

If it's really slow you'll have to watch the deadlines. Might make sense to run the graphical client if that's the case.

Yeah I seem to be having the same problem you were having. My WUs continue to fail to report. Wonder how the points get awarded? Maybe their server is accepting WUS, but not acknowledging them for points? I dunno..

I'm still in this thing :P :P :P

how I dealt with it was just reset, and reopen the FAHclient every couple hours to see if i can convince them to send. I had one send, but ive lost a few having deleted the client as one of the fixes.

My VMs reported their first WUs fine however

I'll give that a try tonight for my Quad. On the quad I have both SMP clients in VM.

I have reset the SMP client on my AM2 system, but it didn't help... Maybe I'll try it again tonight just in case. Right now it is not running VM.

I wonder if it won't give me points if the deadline hits, even though the WU was done 2 days ago....
