If I want to join the LTT Folding@Home team, is there anything else I need to do other than enter the team number?

No, but if you want bonus points which really helps the team get a passkey, you are prompted to anyway. The bonus points kick in after 10 work units are handed in I believe

I joined the team a few weeks ago, but I don't trust leaving my pc on for extended periods of time without regular checks, so I only contribute every now and then :/

I've a suggestion, if it's possible. That is to add a badge key (or Legend) to the Badge FAQ thread if possible. Because the badges when simply displayed are pretty vague in what they represent, especially to us noobs.

 

Alternative idea, again if possible, would be a simple tooltip on mouseover on a member's badges. ...Actually as of writing this I see some badges have tooltips but not all... 

 

Yes I know I can click the hyper link User's Awards, but that to me is a little cumbersome :)

 

So in closing, suggestion 2 is clearly possible, but i think doing both suggestion 1 and 2 would rock

 

Thanks

 

I cannot do the tool tip - that is a per badge / per user item, hence why only some have it. But I did update the FAQ with the images themselves, so you can see. :)

I don't know if I should fold with my shitty laptop or not...

 

For laptops, best option is the Chrome App.

Shortly after I posted this, I found a guide for things like that.  Thank you for getting back to me though!

Yes you should, I do and it's fine it might be a little hot but it should be good.

+1 if you can prop it up on something, remove the RAM/HDD cover and get a desk fan it'll help even more. I ran Phoenix (Tosh C855-253) standing on one end with the heatsink pointing skywards, put the screen and base either side of my PC's side intake and then covered 80% of the top so my PC drew the warm air away from the laptop and cool air over it. Temps were 73C

Welcome iGameOver! ...I have two of those t shirts but in white print :)

 

I've noticed for about 24 Hrs now, perhaps slightly more my PPD have been awful.

 

Has anyone else noticed this? ....I'm wondering if it's the witcher drivers from nVidia hmm

 

I've gone from 300k - 500k down to a mere 50k - 80k ...noticed across half a dozen WU's now

Check the FahCore of the Work Unit that you are working on. Core 15 gives awful PPD for 900-Series GPU's. As well as no quick return bonus for finish it faster.

Oh! perhaps you are right, I've just noticed this morning i'm on a core 17 and it's back up to 500k ...I must have had several 15's in a row.

 

Thankyou :)

I just read the tips and tricks for folding users. Can someone explain to me why you want to leave one core free for each GPU running folding? I noticed it left a core free when I started folding so I changed my settings so it used all cores. I don't seem to be having any issues. I have ~350,000 PPD with ~340,000 PPD coming from my GTX 980 and ~10,000 PPD coming from my 4770k. My temperatues don't exceed 70 degrees Celsius. Is this fine? Or should I leave a core free? If so, why?
