  1. Credit goes to @danielocdh for creating this, I've only been making some updates and created a GitHub gist so we can track it a bit easier Nice setup for folding @Harpo!! I'm currently on two GTX 980s and every month I try to spin up an Azure VM since I have credit on there from work for free (might as well use it for something right?)
  2. Always good to question random scripts from the internet. The script uses the F@H Client Telnet Protocol described here By default F@H allows connections from localhost on port 36330 with no password, so if you just leave the script as is it will try to connect to localhost:36330 with no password. There are commands that could be used to set User/Team/Passkey as part of the options commands but if you scan through they are not being used. I believe they are: option user <username> option team <team number> option passkey <passkey value> Where technically you can set multiple at a time. There is one call that I added to the last iteration of the script to check for new versions of the script by calling to the GitHub gist location which you may disable if you do not feel comfortable with the script reaching out to the internet. I'm also thinking of updating it to take a config file instead of the values built into the script so that between upgrades it does not cause you to have to transpose the values that you've changed from default each time...
  3. Are you choosing COVID-19 only? If so it might be that there are insufficient WUs at times.
  4. My one buddy had to remove all slots, then re-add the GPU and then it took it, after that he added his CPU and things were happy again.
  5. 1 & 2) I generally run Ubuntu systems as they're easy for care and feeding. If your comfortable with command line Ubuntu Server isn't bad, if you want a GUI I'd go with Ubuntu Desktop. I normally stick to debian based distros otherwise when I toy around with em. As @Inkertus said, it's all depending on how comfortable you are with command line or I would add how technical/comfortable with learning you are. 3) From Windows to Linux, depends on if you have a GUI and/or if your comfortable with command line. If you're running something like Ubuntu Desktop you could install a VNC server and use that to kinda be like remote desktop or the messy route of xWindows Forwarding but TBH it's easiest to use SSH and learn command line for it. Also if it's for managing F@H then use the advanced controls on your windows machine to control it. If you just want stats and basic management of the Ubuntu system look into cockpit it's easy to use: Cockpit 4) Babysitter does work on Linux just make sure you have python3 installed Note: Folding@Home uses Python2 which is no longer really supported, so depending on the version of linux you install it may no longer be automatically installed (Python3 might) so you may have to install Python2. Current LTS of Ubuntu 20.04 you must install it via package manager
  6. Good point @CWP, I don't disagree that many distros would normally ask you to give execute rights to the script, I think the part that is working for us here is that the script is normally not being downloaded but copy and pasted into a file vs if the file was directly downloaded in which case a modification of execution rights would definitely be needed.
  7. Ah likely you're potentially still running using Python 2, can you please try running python3 FAHbabysitter.py
  8. Ugh as someone who has to admin Windows servers every day it drives me insane... IIS with .NET applications (2.0 - 4.5) is asking for headaches at times. 4.7.x isn't as bad, but can still be annoying and .NET Core is generally OK after .NET Core 2 To be honest containers has made admin a lot less of a headache, don't have to worry as much about babysitting the OS
  9. Should, if you have python3 installed Sorry I say should as I don't remember the last time I ran a Linux system with a head lol
  10. If you need any other video cards to betray you hit me up, haha
  11. Should look something like: Double clicking on the script should work as well for most people.
  12. Unfortunately this has been happening to a few people: WS have been busy from some reports, other times people are saying that restarting FAH has fixed it, mostly it's waiting for the WU to be accepted. There have been some reports that the WU has timed out and the WS won't accept it and that the credit is lost, but that was only one report I saw in the GitHub issue tracker. In that same issue there was mention that some are looking at working on an update for Work Servers to tell Clients why an update wasn't accepted better as the client has no idea what's going on when a WU isn't accepted.
  13. Creating a place to discuss the Folding@Home Babysitter script It has been noticed that pause and un-pausing slots that are stuck in a waiting status looking for work has improved the clients ability to connect and download work units. That's where the Babysitter script that @danielocdh wrote comes in, it checks the Folding@Home client periodically and pauses and un-pauses slots that are stuck waiting on Work Server Assignment. A few people are using this now to try to help manage Folding@Home clients, so I figured it might be easier to create a topic on it for instructions, feedback, in case people are having issues and to provide updates. Easier than running around the different topics that have referenced it. I've been working with @danielocdh to update this script here and there to ensure it works with the recently released version of the Folding@Home Client and fix other issues and add new features It can be found on GitHub currently, as of writing this topic, the script is at version 1.8 and will now tell you periodically if there are updates. At the top of the script you can find options as well as a how to for installing Python 3 Installing Python 3 on Windows: Installing Babysitter Script on Windows: Options Available:
  14. So if you move a protein from one version to another it learns how to fold it into a square Good catch though, I was wondering what happened to that beast.
