ok i'll be away from folding for a few days maybe because my dual pc has bsoed a few times after running 5 day marathon....

and i need a lot of rendering to do so that will keep it busy :p

also, i plan on getting a new rheobus so i can run my fans at higher voltage (right now it's 7V), way too loud at 12V

 

 

my oldie 1.3 is still crunching, it's been on since april 17 :nervous:

You mean your really powerful PC, the one that's giving you the advantage, is going to be not folding for a few days?

 

Wahoo! I'll try and get my P4 up to 3.0GHz by saturday. So far I've only had it up to 2.8 without crashes, at 2.9 it either BSODs after login, or fails to notice that I have a hard drive. This is gonna be fun!

Picture it now in a newspaper; "Criminals fight cancer" ;)

 

We could get forum gangs to do the same - then the forum gangs would have some competition to look forward to.

 

Maybe I'll send out a mass PM or post an announcement...

hehe I like it!

 

I have encouraged the Zaibatsu!

 

As i said before tank if you can increase the sig size to 550 then that would help, but you don't have to, i could always implement the folding idea into my current OGA sig.

 

Hey i got a great idea! Lets force Bill Gates into this. He probably has LOADS of spare pcs with 3 ghz of cpu power!

 

Cancer will be cured in a few days  :p

Something I've noticed other forums do, is have certains *teams* within a forum fold under one name.  Therefore, everyone would fold collectively as one name under Team GTAForums.  

 

Nice idea.   :)

If all of the gangs folded on the GTAforums team, they could put thier gang name in thier folding user name.  

Then each of the gangs could post thier aggregate score for all thier gang members in thier sig or something.  It would be great competition and added prestige if your gang has the highest folding score.  Great way to show the relative strength and participation of each gangs members.  Give some chuckleheads a reason to fold besides just doing it for a good cause.

And everyone would still be on the same forums team so it would all be for the good of the forum.

 

Tank, this would be a great thing to present to potential advertisers on the web site as well (but please not the pop up ones).

 

I called my sister again, and here's some of the scoop.  There's a guy who writes a weekly feature on the internet, he just kind of reviews cool sites and what's going on, you know how it is almost every paper has one.  She thinks he is syndicated, but she doesn't know exactly which or how many papers his column is in.  Basically if it gets mentioned, it would be a few lines to a paragraph or two in his column so its not going to be headline news or anything.  She thinks it may take a few weeks, doesn't really know the time line thing.  She said she's not supposed to tell me this even, and won't tell me his name, because she said feature writers get bombed with ad spam and begging to be written up by sites if they find out they are under potential review.  I'm not even going to write about it anymore, so if you have any questions or what have you then PM me.  But I will immediately let everyone know if it goes to print.

 

Edit:  Sorry mike, just noticed you already posted the same thing I said in the first two sentences.  I haven't slept in a while, not thinking clearly.

Right, ive also put this on my other PC which is an 800mhz :wtf: wont be as fast but its something :)  i havent appeared on the list yet but ive got like another 15% before i complete this work unit (i think) i will appear on the list then, though on this machine (my 800mhz it probably wont complete for another week aor so, ive had it since lunchtime today and its now 10:15pm and its now 23/100 - ohh! now 24!  :p )

 

Oh and tank yes!  do send a mass PM thats a good idea :) my estimate is that probably 50% of active members will join, there are 29644 members... about 17,000 come online regularly,  the average processor speed is brob 1ghz.... so thats 17000/2 = a total of 8500ghz!  but thsi of course is probably completely wrong :pp but still.... if everyone on the forum joined the team then that would be a significant number of people and processing power but even if 1000 people joined the team.... thats around 1000ghz :p

 

a mass message would be a good idea  :colgate:

Ok, I've gathered some stats and have done a little estimating to see what we need to get to 99th place, and there's a personal reason why I want the team to reach 99th place.

 

Gangs - # of Members

 

$outh $ide Hoodz - 35

The Precinct - 22

Diablos - 28

Mafia Inc. - 44

Zaibatsu - 20

The Weirdos - 8

The Scorpions - 34

Andolini Family Mafia - 26

Leone Family Mafia - 26

 

Total Gang Members - 243

 

Estimated participation from all gangs - 70% which is approx. 170 gang participants

 

All Admins and Mods - 15

All non-gang members likely to participate - 50-100

 

A guess of how many Team GTAForums folding members - 250

 

Does anybody have an idea of how many forum members are active in a week?  I saw Viper's estimate, but I really don't think we have 17,000 regulars (it'd be nice though).  I'm guessing there are about 500 active a week, maybe more or less.

 

Here's a link to the Top 100 [email protected] teams

http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/searchteamstats

 

Alright everone, according to the link I just posted, Lite Technology is in 100th place.  However, I want to see the 99th ranked team knocked out of place (should it stay put at 99 for the time being) - Let's see if anyone can figure out why I wanna go after team 99.  Here's a hint: I'm 22 yrs. old.

 

Yes, a mass mailing of some sort would be a great idea Tank.  Although this has to be done in such a way that people are inclined to participate.  Being just for a good cause probably isn't enough of an incentive on it's own, so I can see a wave of mass recruiting efforts by all gangs if we can get gangs rivaling for 1st place.  Although, I'm definately encouraging all non-gang members who don't want to join a gang to help out as well.

 

 

EDIT:  Ah crap, I forgot to include all the unofficial gangs to the list.  If anyone knows how many there are and about how many are in each gang, post em.

 

EDIT 2:  Off-topic:  LMAO at dizzy's avatar!  Icould set the building on fire if they take my Swingline stapler.

last I checked majestik you were tops bud, props to ya...

 

I think we should just have our own one gtaforums team, we could reach the top easily with all the members we have now, instead of having each gang do it...and to whoever signed up as GTAforums, you can change your name, just right click the system tray icon and select Configure.  in one day I have 211/400 already  :D

BTW way, I think I accedently registered as "GTAForums" as my name... so... that's who that is, in case your wondoring...

That doesnt matter, right click on the system try icon thend do confgure and then just re-name yourself, it should work, but you may need to complete another work unit to see it in the ream stats :)

Could someone make a sig thats the same size as the OGA one, but with [email protected] and OGA combined.

Yeah, I was thinking we need a few different kinds of sigs/banners.  I think I'll go beg ask around the forums or I might even try out my own crappy skills in a while :D

 

For the sizes,

 

234x20 << as long as there's an OGA that's 234x20

468x70 << for those without sigs (like me) can use a full one if they want

300x50 << allows some room for other stuff

Icons/buttons that don't take up much space

 

Any other ideas?

Yeah, I was thinking that the gang idea might not work out so well myself.  For one it would be impossible to know how many each gang had participateing.  

 

So here's my alternative to the gang idea:  We could still have competion between gangs if everyone in their gang signed up and put their gang name at the beginning or end of their name.  For example, I would re-sign up as The Precinct - Xcomm.  Although, this would be hard to track wich gang is leading without doing a crapload of sorting and adding all the time.

 

Anyone got some other ideas on this?

 

 

Alright, I'll reveal my grudge against team 99.  It happens to be the Computer Science Dept. of the University I go to (well not at the moment anyways).  They must fall people, they must fall.  :devil:

Oh, and I'm now on the team stats page. I'm last, but that'll change hopefully :p

 

Edit: (I suppose it's fairly obvious I just copy and pasted Xcommunicated's sig)

No, you guys aren't getting it, lol.

 

You guys wouldn't be your own *separate* team, you would be folding under team 32093 - with your name as "The Precinct" or whichever gang you were.  You wouldn't be able to track your own personal stats, but everything would still work out the same. You would just end up with like 40 processors folding for one name.

Hey i have a 801 mhz and it only takes me 7 mins and 3 secs to advance a frame, but i was only running word at the time.

 

Try this:

 

Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and get rid of everything except Explorer, Systray, FahCore_65 and some others that you might need. In other words close everything apart from the stuff u KNOW u need.

 

I found as well that screensavers (especially the Matrix one that i use) slows down the frame thingy so dont use them.

I also find rasing the priority when the computer is idle to normal instead of low helps too
