    I just started this up a couple days ago, took my work computer like 3 working days to finish off 50 thingies.

    At least I finished my first WU now though My PC is only on when I am at work though, maybe I should leave it on 24/7

    This WU I got is like 500 though... so whats the deal with having some that are 50 and some that are 500 etc, are each of the 500 ones easier to churn through or something so that each WU will take about the same amount of time?

    How does that work?

    some just take longer then others, a 1000 one took me like 2 days, and a 10000 one took me like 8 hours =\

    Remember to have two cores running at the same time (with different machine id) if you have multiple CPUs or HT enabled CPU (good ol P4s ).

    Assuming that you are using the console-based text-only console:

    Copy the exe you've downloaded into two different folders (you should name them 1 and 2).
    Run the exe from each folder once, make sure you go into the advanced option and give each one of them a different machine id.
    Watch your cpu usage going from ~50 to 100 .

    You lot proberly dont know me, And same way around..... Id love to help out but seeing as i cant because my dad restarts his PC at random times etc so i lose the net.

    I wish i could've helped out and from what ive just read (6 pages) Spam sounded like a great person Keep up the good work everyone

    heya linx,

    doesnt matter if you do lose the net, basically its only needed when the work unit is completed and it sends the data back and then d/l the next unit(as far as i know)

    if you still want to help then please by all means d/l it and start

    um yeah but its only liek 1meg every few days so maybe 10megs a mth
    i dont know how accurate this is because you do have different sized work units, perhaps check on their website, it may have something on there

    perhaps you should limit your linux iso downloads

    Folding waits for your cpu to be completely idle (not doing anything at all really) then tells your cpu to just crunch through a whole bunch of numbers and algorithms.

    Then it sends the data back to someone who can do something useful with it, in lamens terms.

    It utilises all the power you're wasting having your pc on when you're not using it.

    You think you can catch up with the following;

    P4 3+ghz
    AMD T-Bird 1.4ghz
    AMD Celeron 1ghz
    Pentium 3 450mhz
    AMD k7 350mhz

    I think not...
