OK, got the laptop running. Here's what I did:

Stopped FAH.

Went into the directory and deleted EVERYTHING but the executable.
Re-ran it with '-config' and set it all up again.

Restarted it... guess what, works like a champ.

And in task manager they *will* show up.
What about that other folder?

Wouldn't it be smarter for me to keep my **** folder on the computer I keep with me?

If you have a faaaast dual core / dual cpu machine, then you can run the SMP client -- it's MASSIVE points!
Thats what my laptop and desktop run. Notice my Pts/WU ratio is FAR higher than anyone else on the team That and big WUs and Advanced/Prototype assignments

Heck yes!
I have a bunch of "powerful" computers (or they were at the time) so I only do -advmethods and big units.

I deleted the work folder and config (GUI client machines) and restarted and... just like you works like a champ.

Software gurus these guys appear to be not based on the bugs in the SMP client and these types of issues. Hopefully the protein folding code itself has been more thoroughly tested.

From what I've read (and experienced) there are a number of checks in place, that's why every now and then you'll get EUE or early unit ends. That means something went wrong and it's just safer to trash the unit and start on another one.

The SMP client is in beta because it's a really complex piece of software, kudos to the F@H team in getting the SMP client -- especially one that doesn't just start multiple cores, but one that actually introduces a new aspect to folding; more complex proteins.

Hey bit,

That computer that was not connecting tired about 25 times before it finally connected. I did nothing to it. Eventually F@H I guess connected.

I think the retry logic gives the client progressively longer delays as each failure occurs. I couldn't wait that long. I think what happens is the client gets assigned to a server for work and it STAYS trying with that server unless the config gets blown away or somehow it gets re-assigned maybe after a WU is completed, but if the work server the client is going to is down then the client just keeps trying the same downed server... it needs logic to give up and try another server.

agreed. Some logical sequences would facilitate a faster reconnect.

This weekend I just realized was my 1 month "anniversary" of folding.

So I assume you are going to buy a hundred PS3's for the team?
