The idea is thus: Your headless boxen have that mini-HTTP server integrated into it. You can view the unitinfo.txt for each one by clicking the one link for each process spawned. All this does is take that latest txt file and copy it locally. You can then just generate the page itself the same way u...

Trust me, it's nowhere near as bad as United Devices / Grid.org. They lost a LOT of people, my team included, because they managed to corrupt their entire user database and stats databases... and then played stupid for days on end.

Were you planning on setting up the server to gather info from the logs of all the clients automatically and make it available as a webpage? That would be so cool! 8) Actually, I've got something in the works to harvest the unitinfo.txt of each headless cruncher and copy it to your webserver of cho...

Can I ask a silly question about the new version? Will there be any real performance degredation by using WinE to run the Windows client?

Those are Amber-core WUs... stupidly-quick to fold, and worthless too as you can see in terms of points. Let's hope they're of some use scientifically.

Nothing that works yet. Was trying some ASP, but it's all the same. The source URLs are private IPs, and embedding the content of those URLs freaks out IE / Firefox because it can't reach them directly. I've decided to set up a scheduled multi-copy that "pulls" each txt file and puts it in a common ...

I'd be happy to host the entire setup you have as a mirror to your own website.

I have a Cogeco Cable 5Mbit feed with 640kb/sec upload.

Let me know if you want to go ahead with this.

Try notfred's folding CD setup if you don't need the box for anything else. It's quite sweet, and some boxes appear to receive a bit of a boost from having nothing loaded but a bare Linux image and F@H, plus the performance tweak of running it all in a RAMdisk. I'll be guinea piggin' a couple more W...

I have to say, I tested your bootable CD last night (much to the wife's display, as I was digging out old monitors and such cause the comp's BIOS threw a no-KB fit) and it works like a charm! The webpage monitoring is a neat touch as well. I'm really quite impressed, and commend you on your efforts....

Does the demo file itself have the extension .demo? If it doesn't, Doom 3 becomes a babbling idiot and refuses to load the file.
