Make frankenbot scary for halloween - 2008

Mon Sep 29, 2008 1:04 pm

W00t. It's that time of year again.
Last year, look what we were able to accomplish:

I think we can easily beat 20k, especially with the GPU clients.
http://www.techreport.com/forums/viewto ... =9&t=53753

So in summary, I'd like to encourage everyone who doesn't regularly contribute (talking to myself here) to put up a machine or 2 in honor of our favorite TR user. If you need any help, see the stickies in TR Distributed Computing Effort forum, or post here and we'll be glad to help out.

EDIT: Frankie's EOC Stats

No way, this time we should aim for Frankie to beat even segfault! :D

I propose all gauntlets in the running be suspended for some of us to switch our IDs to TRFrankenbot. Is Sparrow's stat site still running? We may also want to do a new sig image too.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

I was looking for a stat thing and no luck. Part of the problem is the lack of html code ability in phpBB3.

I'll rifle through the X64's and fasterxp's and startup a few tonight.

I have an 8800 gs coming will fire that up for a month or so. That should be good for 3-4k.

I got some of my farm going again over the past week, so I'll kick of 12-20 bots tonight. I don't run them much, its dissapointing to watch a single e6300 node crank out nearly 3,000 points/day, and each AXP use the same power and do 120 points.

Switched a 24 hour laptop worth about 350 ppd to frankenbot. Might try to get smp working on it. That should be worth a good amount more as its just two single core clients. Also switching a 6 hour a day laptop worth about 500 ppd, might get smp working on it if I can get it to run more often.

I will switch my GPU over for halloween thats worth the real 4k ppd.

I'll commit my GTX 260 and 4850 a day before. I'll see if I can get some Q6600's in too for a few days.

I think the only way that will happen is if we get help from JPinto, FBW, and/or Fuzzhead. I've already donated 4 SMP clients and 1 GPU client to Franky. I currently have my 9800GX2 folding under my old username to see what kind of PPD it's getting (Fahmom is so erratic in what it reports). Once I've gotten a few days in to see how it's doing I will move it over to Franky.

But, to scare Seggy, we need the other big folders to give up the chase for a few weeks and combine forces.

I've moved my 8800GT, 2 laptops & HTPC over to TRFrankenbot.

I'm going to keep 1 laptop for myself, though.

Done. finally got it up. Looks like right around 4k/day.

I tried kicking some bots, but the 64 bit bots were coming back to "cass" I have to either change dhcp to load the bot or tftp it to its address.... will work on that sometime in the next few days.

On 01 October I caved to peer pressure and switched my three UGN single core clients to the TRFrankenbot effort.

However, I personally feel that a week of Frankie support is plenty. From sabbath to sabbath to keep him Scary and Safe on the witches sabbath!
Sooo, for the week of Halloween he will have the full power of all the farmpuma hardware under my direct control. MF'n Booo!

I hereby 'suspend' my campaign (no,really!) to pursue UGN for the month of October, so that the appropriate resources be diverted to a cause that is much bigger than myself! :P
