Re: TR Redesign: bugs - features - tips

I've been using Xolore's CSS mod as I find it a much nicer way of using the site. However, I found the search really jarring to use and so I made a few additions to his work. In my opinion, the additions make things a bit more cohesive. I'm no web dev so I apologize if the code below is terrible but...

Re: TR Redesign: bugs - features - tips

I just noticed that the page number links in articles do not match the page number links on the main page. Could the page numbers in the articles match the style shown on the front page, at least until the navigation drop down is brought back?

Re: TR Redesign: bugs - features - tips

At least as a temporary stop-gap until the Hot threads summary is implemented, could links to "New Posts" and "Active Topics" be added as a drop down to the "Forums" link on the front page?

I move that we break off Fish's original post here, and create a new official thread dedicated to constructively discussing and prioritizing the suggestion list, and then float it at the top. No venting, just organizing the list. That'll give the new owners a place to quickly and easily get input f...

Been enjoying those. Everyone should at least watch the T-1 minute for the first 10 minutes or so. You'll get goosebumps.

Re: Custom cables for headphones

If your P5 Series 2 takes standard 3.5mm headphone cables, you may want to look here: https://zapcables.com/audio-cables/ .

Thanks Tarx for putting these together! I also haven't been able to contribute in the last couple months. My PC hasn't been as active after the birth of my daughter. Hopefully I can start folding again soon too.

I switched over to my folding account to double check and saw that I was still getting 0 points even though I'm not getting any errors. In a way I'm glad to see that the issue is ...

It looks like we are really having a difficult time sustaining >3M PPD, even with the recent additions to the effort. The good news is that we should still break last year's record if we can maintain the 2.9M PPD production! If everything stays stable from here on out we should break 86M points for ...

I also don't fold with my CPU either, but I've definitely seen a dramatic change in response between "Full" and "Medium".

Also, check on the F@H Advanced Control window that your folding power is set to "Full" How much of a difference do you typically see between the "Medium" and "Full" setting? On my system, there is only about 5-10k PPD difference in output, but my system is basically u...

(19,562,699 P in the last calendar 7 days is an average 2,794,671 PPD for Frankie, but from 25 contributors so a mean of 111,787 PPDPContributor :( ) That's the part that always seems so strange to me. Our actual production average seems about 30% low compared to what people have posted as their PPD.

Re: TR Frankenbot 2018; wow, is it that time already?

It looks like Frankenbot's production bounced back about 12 hours ago. Hopefully we are now back to ~3M PPD. Is there anyway to tell how many active clients are contributing within the last 24 hours?

Re: TR Frankenbot 2018; wow, is it that time already?

Make sure you're checking your rigs daily. Based on those who've chimed in about their PPD (assuming everyone is folding 24/7), we should be seeing between 550k-600k points in each 3 hour time slot. I do wonder if my points aren't being counted towards Frankie. It's either that or, based on Extreme...

Re: TR Frankenbot 2018; wow, is it that time already?

I'm back up to ~700k now. Frankie should see a decent bump in PPD from here on out.

Edit: Dang, WU Failed. Not sure what is going on right now with my GPU/driver. This is the first issue I've had with F@H since last December. Hopefully I can get this sorted tonight.
