Did you enable that option?
I'm not really sure if there's any other way to find out if it's a big WU

I don't want to stop it and I don't know what was enabled. It seems to be doing about 1 unit a day maybe - it's on the 4th one now.

You're doing big units then.
Also you can tell by how many points you're getting per unit.

I'd give you more statistics, but Clublexus needs to break at least 2000th rank otherwise the website I use for the detailed statistics just ignores the team

I just added my old dual CPU server to work on units too. I have several other computers too, but they're not on all the time.

Linux smp?
The linux 64bit client supports nice smp from the official client itself. Otherwise you have to install the client twice

That's what I had to do on my dual AMD machine running WinXP.

The 'server' I mentioned in running Win2K but I can see in PerfMon that folding is using both processors with one instance running.

Muchos nice.
I can't wait until more applications become smp-capable as dual cores hit the mainstream. I've had a dual cpu machine since 8th grade!

I think you need to switch to doing work for CL instead of MB!

This server is actually 2 completely separate cpu's (700MHz PIIIs, LOL) and not a dual core one. Anyway, the server is just for home files (pics, music, etc.) with mirrored drives.

I actually gave out the MB team number just so I could easily keep track of everyone

So is my AMD box. Dual 1.53ghz cpu's. I love that machine.
Do you have RAID1? How much space do you have?

I have a Promise SATA RAID controller in the server with two 250GB drives mirrored (RAID1 that would be, I think? RAID0 is just striping I think, kinda dangerous unless they just cache drives).

This is my second Promise controller - the older ATA one is this desktop I'm typing on now - with two 80GB drives - good enough for a desktop since I can store bigger stuff on the server.

The Linux box, by the way, is named 'frankenstein' because of all the parts I had to get to put t together. It's a 2.6GHz P4 with a gig of RAM and it runs like a champ. It shares a monitor, keyboard and mouse with the Win2K server, but I usually manage both from this desktop (Linux using VNC, and Win2K via Remote Desktop).

Anyway, digressing from folding a bit but it sounds like we're both geeks.

Yeah pretty much

I'm thinking about getting a usb raid setup for my macbook pro, just haven't had time to order the drives, nor actually see if it'll be easily possible without using a usb hub.

I just added four more cores to my folding crew. 2 dual core 1.86ghz Core2Duo's.

Welcome to the team
Don't worry about the long due dates, your contributing to the effort and that is what really counts.

Tell your friends and your family, there is no shortage of folks that can help out the project!
