The question i had, is it a big download? Please, that would be great.
The application is small and work units are pretty small. It doesn't need an internet connection while it's working, but when it's time for uploading it does.

Does this slow your system down any or does it just use resourcees that you arent using

Basically, it helps do work for Stanford University to research diseases related to DNA. Instead of them having to spend millions of dollars on supercomputers, they distribute the work among people's computers.

It doesn't slow it down at all. It uses any CPU power you're not utilizing.

You can X out of it at any time. It'll simply resume the work unit when you start it back up.

Default Re: Distributed computer, CF teams.

I just recently got a old Dell Dimension 4100 which I just installed Windows Server 2003 Standard on. I downloaded the program and I have started working on frames/WU's. It's only a 1GHz processor so I doubt it will do much, but I did put in our team number (42655) I am happy to support our team. Also, are there any settings I should be aware of? I want to make sure I am doing as much as I can. I have the CPU usage set to 100%.

Thanks in advance and I'm happy to join the team.

I got my X2 3800 today, and just installed the SMP client.

Congrats to Team CF for passing the 2000 mark! We've moved up about 100 positions since two weeks ago, and we're now 1998th.



EDIT: Umm... is SMP supposed to be extremely slow? It's been running Project 2653 for nearly 10 hours and it's only 4% done. Is this normal?

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
