The excuse thread
« on: January 23, 2012, 10:46:43 pm »
Tse, to those of you who aren't folding, why are you not folding?  Too weak a computer or internet connection, for instance?

If you are a [email protected] member, come and resolve our little excuses of why we're not folding :P

I used to fold for our team. I could start again, but nìawnomum I just have a laptop with mediocre hardware, and my netbook recently died. I dont have any servers or anything that I could commit to [email protected] unfortunately.

We currently have 25 inactive users according to EOC fah stats... you can contribute even with weaker hardware (for example, I used an old dual pentium 3 server for [email protected] quite a long time)

My processor isn't even multi-core (2.2 GHz, don't really want to risk overclocking it, and don't even know how to), and my video card isn't really up to par (if that's relevant).

I had a 2.0Ghz single core running until 2 weeks ago (HDD died of age). Just about anything can run the uniprocessor client. As for overclocking it...if you have a brand-name PC, odds are you can't.

and my video card isn't really up to par (if that's relevant).
What model card?

NVIDIA GeForce 7050/ NVIDIA nForce 620i ... so maybe not completely out of the question.

Unfortunately this card doesn't support CUDA which is required for running the GPU client (alternatively OpenCL but that isn't supported either) :-(

My computer is either being used or off due to extreme noise issues. You can hear it if it isn't idling from the other end of the house.
Only mostly AWOL.

I usually fold on and off during the night but like to limit my folding as my girlfriend already runs her PC 24/7 folding for the EVGA team and I like to keep our power consumption down in the apartment lest the landlord raise my rent.
