I can't speak for the whole UGN, but I suppose the Nation can switch after JPinTO overtakes us mid-month. Not sure if JPinTO himself will be contributing to the effort.

Let's rename the thread for the official Frankie 2009 effort?

Well, some people switch over for the entire month, some just for the week of Halloween, and some just for a few days. All contributions are appreciated.


I agree with FF about making this the official thread. How about, "TRFrankenbot on life support? NO! Let's make him scary for 2009!"

I say we should all switch over to TRFrankenbot ASAP so he will be really scary on Halloween. 8) Including you Mr. Pinto Bean who didn't switch over last year. Shame on you. :wink:

Hey there, Folders!

Wow, the pale blue dot has completed another revolution around Sol - where has the time gone? So I take it the annual tradition of making frankenbot scary is once again to be witnessed? Bring it on :D

I had completely forgotten. I highly recommend someone take up the charge and get this rocking again. We did much better than ever imagined. Can the trend be continued? Gerbils, unite!

So Jeffry, when should the Nation switch for the effort? After Pinto passes us sounds good?

BTW, for those who don't know, here is the info to switch to:
User: TRFrankenbot
Team: 2630 (you think it is different? :P)

(Note: I've merged in a few posts that people made in the past couple of days on last year's thread before it got locked.)

I've been meaning to cobble together another dual-core Linux testbed system from spare parts. I'll put it under TRFrankenbot for burn-in!

The old GPU1 client is gone. The newer GPU2 client works on both Nvidia and AMD GPUs, although Nvidia GPUs give you a bit more points. There are ways to tweak the AMD client to perform better, but it is still behind the Nvidia ones. GPU2 clients in general still give you a lot more points than the CPU folding clients.

Good luck and welcome to the Fold! :D

Thanks JBI. For the past few days I've been busier than a cat covering up his business on a tile floor. Luckily, I've been a bit more successful than the cat.


And I've switched my three UGN single core clients over to TRFrankenbot. Between the three of them they have nearly ten 336 point WUs waiting for the server to come back online. My local farmpuma array will also switch over to Frankie for the week of Halloween, unless I cave sooner.

From today's Shortbread, looks like even the 5xxx is not helping yet because Stanford is still too slow to move to OpenCL or fixing the AMD codepath. :evil:

It's things like this and the still lackluster SMP client that are downers for the project. :-?
