amd_man2003 is now on the list. Welcome and goodluck :)

07-14-2004, 01:41 AM
Thanks! I should add quite a bit with my 2.4c at 3Ghz (HT) :beerchug:

07-14-2004, 06:28 AM

Welcome amd_man2003 to Team 63. Cya on the ranks and happy folding :)

Fold On!!!

I'd like to extend a warm welcome from the Project Tweakers team to all TweakTown folders!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

I am the chief cook and bottle washer of the Project Tweakers website (http://www.project-tweakers.com). I will be updating that site ASAP to reflect TweakTown's addition to Team 63. We are already ranked 41 in the world -- with you guys providing some additional power, we can climb the ranks!<o:p></o:p>


If I can help any of you get started, or if you have any questions about the team or the website, feel free to email me at [email protected]<o:p></o:p>


Again, welcome!<o:p></o:p>


08-01-2004, 08:06 AM
so how many here are folding now?

08-01-2004, 08:46 AM
Just one by the looks of it.

08-01-2004, 10:22 PM
ouch... I thought for sure there would be more. If you arent - give it some careful consideration pls! :)

08-02-2004, 04:19 AM
Hey guys, I'm a fellow folder (from a different team, 11314, the EOC folding team). Just wanted to wish you guys good luck. Folding is definitely a worthwhile effort. I was gonna promote it here, but I see you already have a team, so I will just wish you the best of luck.

Also, just a quick idea... you guys couls consider using something in your sigs to draw more people to folding. I have graphics in my sig (check em out), and I think that it will get people to pay more attention than they would otherwise.

Keep folding!!!

08-19-2004, 05:43 PM

Thanks for your good luck wishes ViperX!!!


08-22-2004, 02:14 AM
Thanks for the encouragement, ViperX! Project Tweakers (http://www.project-tweakers.com) wishes the EOC team all the best as well -- in a way, we're all on the same team, aren't we?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

I am writing Perl code to generate sig images on-the-fly with member stats for our team. I'm a bit concerned about the bandwidth this project will consume, however.<o:p></o:p>


But -- your point is well taken. More visibility equals more folders equals more progress for this worthy project. For now, on all the forums I post, my sig always includes a link...

What's up with the TweakTown regulars? Are all of you devoted to other DC projects? We can't entice some of you to fold for your site's folding team?


08-22-2004, 01:32 PM
We don't have too many regulars these days :(

08-22-2004, 08:37 PM
Yeah I remember seeing some very large threads for folding, seti and UD teams when I first came here that were very active till about last march when something happened and they all left but those team threads seem to be missing now.

08-23-2004, 04:11 AM
My signature should tell you about the Folding team.

08-26-2004, 12:40 PM
Of course though, you want to join our team!



08-28-2004, 11:49 PM
Okay guys I got my 2.4c doing the Double Gromacs now and it is hauling ass. I've also just got a P4 1.8 now folding for me, and an AMD Sempron 2500+ shall be under my name in the next week. I'm also going to ask my Engineering class teacher if I can install Folding on the rigs in our CAD lab, as there all P4 2.8C's with 1gb of RAM. Theres 24 of them http://www.tweaktown.com/forums/images/smilies/clap.gif

Either way though, expect at least 2 or 3 2.8c's coming under my name soon http://www.tweaktown.com/forums/images/smilies/smokindevil.gif

08-29-2004, 01:46 AM
Where'd you get the Sempron from? Damn things have only been on Newegg for a week or so and you've already got someone else's Folding...

08-29-2004, 02:03 AM
I'm ordering it tonight actually. Building a rig for my aunt with an EPoX nforce2 IGP mobo, twin 256mb Kreton PC3200, WD 40gb, and the 2500+ Sempron

08-29-2004, 02:13 AM
With onboard video (http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=13-123-216&depa=0), I take it? Not bad choices, although you could make it a 2500 Barton or 2600 Sempron just to be evil and get more WUs from them without increasing the budget much. :smokindev

09-04-2004, 09:40 AM
Hey, yall can add this to the list (see sig)

09-08-2004, 09:04 PM
Okay guys I've got the Sempron 2500+ folding for me and I'm pushing 400pts a day on 3 tigs (2500+, 2.4c, 1.8a)

09-09-2004, 06:59 AM
I'm officialy in the GREEN for my first time! http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=94464

10-04-2004, 09:22 PM
Hi all. If any of you are mIRC users and folding, I have written a script that displays your scores in mirc, as well as current WU data (among other things)

It also provides links to your personal stats pages on stanford and team macn, as well as links back here and to other team63 sites.

For you Aussies out there, it also has live weather feeds for all major australian cities and towns.

For more info, email me.

10-27-2004, 05:31 AM
I just joined all... i donno if my computer will help, but every little bit adds up right?

10-27-2004, 06:10 AM
The thing in your signature? That could help these guys quite a bit, depending upon how long you leave it on.

10-27-2004, 06:17 AM
Ok yeah well I plan on laving it on full time while at school and stuff but with lower settings because i don't want the chance of any overheating problems while im not here.. lol

10-30-2004, 11:52 AM
I cant seem to run any games(or they minamize and cant reopen) when the program is open, is this a glitch or has anyone else had any problems loading games?

10-30-2004, 03:10 PM
Never had any problems myself... Which version are you running? You should use the Console version and install it as a service. I have actually heard of people having problems with the console open when trying to play games. If you are using the console so that you can see it, switch to the version that installs as a Windows service.

10-30-2004, 04:56 PM
I am not sure what version it is... The one that has a little gear or flower lookin thing in the system tray, it also has a screensaver option I believe it is the console version.

I can not run games while the icon is in the tray or the process is running.

10-31-2004, 04:05 AM
Then you have the GUI. You should be using the Console version anyway as it should perform slightly better. Try this (http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/release/FAH502-Console.exe) and install Folding as a service. Install it in the same directory as your current version and get rid of the old version to keep doing the same work. If that doesn't work, it could be a driver issue. I know of smeone who had problems with Folding running when using a certain version of Catalysts, so we can look into that as well.

11-03-2004, 08:25 AM
Does the console version run in the tray so that I don't have an annoying window open all the time?

11-03-2004, 08:27 AM
No, but you can have it run as a Windows service, in which case you won't see it at all.

11-03-2004, 08:43 AM
Can you tell me hoe to do that, I wont be able to do it tonight though, I have to go out as of now.

11-03-2004, 10:41 AM
I could have sworn I already did.... I even gave you the exact download link. It shouldn't be too hard to install.

11-04-2004, 06:40 AM
Well it wasent hard to install, I just dont get how to install it as a service. All it does is run in a dos window, and if I close the window my used CPU pecentage goes back to 0% so I know that it is closed, and not folding.

11-04-2004, 06:59 AM
When you install it, it asks you if you want to install it as a Windows Service. Choose yes, and when you're done, clsoe the Windows and restart the computer. You'll never see it again.

11-04-2004, 08:25 AM
Thanks I got it now. Games work too.

11-04-2004, 12:23 PM
Yep - the "no nonsense" console is the one to use - glad to hear its workin' out for you! :)

11-19-2004, 12:44 PM
When I had to reset the bios on my motherboard, I forgot to reset the clock in XP and I finished three WU's in the time between the reset and when I figured out the month said september and it is november. So I just checked my rating and it should say I have 6 Wu's finished while the site thinks I only have 3, would the fact that the months were skrewed up have anything to do with the WU's not showing up?

11-22-2004, 07:38 PM
I dont think it would. as far as I know, the WU is sent no matter what date is on it. It might have been sidelined as corrupt, but it would still show up, even if it only gave you a couple of points.

12-06-2004, 09:59 AM
Seems to me that there is not a lot of change going on in the points and WU's is anyone accualy folding?

12-08-2004, 04:07 AM
Never mind I stand corrected.

05-01-2005, 06:05 AM
Is [email protected] an example of grid computing or is it a beowulf cluster? Is there a difference between the two? From what I've read there's really not much difference.

06-06-2006, 01:34 AM
i recomment that you all hook up with maximum pc, they really enjoy the idea of protein folding

10-30-2006, 11:57 AM
congrats and good luck :thumbsup:

12-13-2006, 03:23 PM
the easiest way to install folding on a windows pc is to use service gui - available here http://devel.bluetentacle.co.uk/dc/fahservice/index.htm

I've used it to install folding on over a hundred PC's

it makes it very easy on dual processor (or more) PC's

03-14-2007, 09:36 PM
hey... :)

nice forum.. i stay here:)

04-08-2007, 12:16 AM
Guys sorry to be a pain but what do you mean by the term 'folding'?

Is it a programme that you use?

04-27-2007, 07:46 AM
The term folding i think mearly refers to what the program actually does. This is more biology than computing. When proteins are created (right down to the strings of amino acids) they are created in what is more or less a straight line. This however cannot be properly utilised by organic systems, and therefore a different structure has to be adopted. Folding is what proteins do for this, and the reason that this is so important is that differently folded proteins interact with different organic and inorganic molecules differently. Im impressed im using the word 'different' so often.

In other words...think of a piece of string. Thats your amino acid chain. Scrunch it up into a mixed up ball and thats your protein. Now twist it and scrunch it up in a different way, and you have a different shaped protein. Different folds means different interactions, which means many things for drug interactions.

So in closing. [email protected] is a program that computes proteins folding in different ways.

Hope that helps.

also...just noticed this link on the project tweakers page, it goes a wee bit more in depth... http://www.project-tweakers.com/html/team/about.html

How do you join the team? I've got the client running so it will use as much of my processor as it wants, how do I join team 63? Solmeone send me a link or something?

I've joined the team, with the GPU and CPU clients.

I'm going to leave my PC on all night with no other non-system processes running if I can.

04-16-2009, 05:30 AM
I just started Folding the other day, I would be interested in joining our Tweakers Team...

Right click the icon which looks like balloons and click "Configure..." and then look down to the Team box and type 63 into it.

04-17-2009, 04:14 AM
Thank you. I just didn't want to assume that it was an open invitation to join.

04-20-2009, 12:38 AM
Does this mean that we are the Top Team?

04-25-2009, 08:10 AM

If it did, it doesn't anymore.... :blackeye:
