The GPU2 client is really hot right now. You can get 5000 points per day with an NVidia 8800 or 9800 GPU and a single core CPU! :o You can download the GPU2 client here. Just remember Username=UnitedGerbilNation and Team Number is 2630! :wink: :D

Downloading and installing the Windows Console, Graphical or GPU Folding Client is very easy. Just download the client you want at the Folding@Home website and follow the installation instructions.

Here is a link to the "Welcome to Team 2630" Sticky. It has a guide for downloading and installing the Linux Console Folding Client.

This link is to "The Easy SMP Client Install Guide" for running the Linux SMP client using VMWare and Linux on a Windows OS.

You can use the same set of instructions to download and install the Linux SMP Folding Client. The SMP Client works with multicore processors and provides a significant points performance improvement over the Console client. Substitute the name of the SMP executable file (fah6) when you type in the command line to start the client.

Points Production Hierarchy

GPU2 - Wowzer!
SMP - Good
Console - Average

Damn, you're fast. I was just about to click on the "split thread" button, then refreshed the thread one last time just to make sure... and you'd already taken care of it! :lol:

you just need lots of friends, family . . . some clients, or friends who work in offices.

you just need to talk a lot, and kick anyone's ass who says no.

if asskicking doesn't work, trying buying them beer or something (candy if you're underage) the sugar rush/drunkeness will make them impressionable.

I've actually been folding for myself: the plan is to get my old AXP folding, then upgrade this to a 4400 X2 (should churn through some WU's :D), and get a mobo + mem to use this 3200 as a diskless.
Early days yet though, I might fold for UGN till i get my mini farm up actually - its goin through ~100ppd, and rising.

didn't know that UGN was so sparsely populated; guess my (sole) PC is making a difference.

In an attempt to regain the passion, I'm moving a couple of my boxes under UGN. If it works and I regain the love, maybe I'll drop the whole farm off my name and stick them all under UGN

That's one of the reasons I'm comptemplating this move. If it weren't for the fact that I believe in the work being done, I'd have quit by now. I have to jump through a bunch of hoops every few months to make sure that all the higher ups at work are OK with me folding on these boxes (and the approval is usually given very grudgingly), and I really have lost any desire to climb the rankings. I don't even really care that Ahab will eventually pass me. :o :o So if I'm not concerned about my own standing, why not give UGN a boost. A UGN with 6000-7000 ppd might attract more interest from prospective new folders than a UGN with 3500-4000 ppd.
