Don't think I'll be able to get my server up and running not this week anyways :| Go Transit has pissed a lot of people off by removing the last 3 trains of rush hour.

 

That and I told my UPS to shut up after it beeped once for overload with my new computer 🤣 Hopefully they get the number of WUs sorted because my dual cpu server is kinda a resource hog in electricity terms and only makes sense if running 24/7 folding, or till I collect 15 8tb drives 😆 Maybe I could permanently borrow them from LTT 🤔

I'm trying to join as "Greenbell7" but I need a passkey and I haven't received the email. Could someone help?

Yep! From the FAQ:

I requested my passkey but didn’t get it for hours!

Spoiler

1.     CHECK YOUR SPAM! There are reports of Mail providers categorizing the passkey mails as Spam!  

 

Besides that there is a super high load on the servers right now due to massive amounts of new donors. The servers can’t keep up with giving out passkeys. Resources are all dedicated to generating new work and giving work assignments. DON’T REQUEST MULTIPLE TIMES! THIS WILL MAKE THINGS WORSE DUE TO EVEN MORE REQUESTS. 

Start folding without it. You can enter it at any time! Until then you won’t get as much points but your service towards science is the same!

I checked my spam It was not there. I guess I wait for now and just let it run for other causes until I get the email.

Yes, just reduce the number of thread in the advanced client. 

 

I'm really bad at giving instructions so I'm hoping someone else can come in and give you decent instructions!

It will run for Covid-19 as long as there are WUs for it. If not, it will either search for WUs till they come or pick one from a different research. Only thing not have a key does is disable bonus points and a couple other things. Your contributions still count towards the team.

You know this monitor has never been the same since my VEGA 64 exploded and killed the displayport in it. It keeps randomly shutting off and on...

So you have to: Advanced client -> configure -> slots -> CPU -> enter how many threads you want to fold one. Max should always be yourNumerOfThreadsThatYOurCPUhas - 1core for the GPU -1core for Windows

Things are getting competitive on my end. There is now a contest to see who can get the most points by the end of the week. The prize is a trip to Galveston, Texas to see the next SpaceX launch and to see the research being done by NASA. What's the prize for the LTT team?

 

It's not about winning, it's about the good we are doing, but it's nice to have a personal goal in mind.

400W on air 0.o I'm surprised you didn't split the PCB!
 

Just pinned my CPU at 100% and temps are looking good. Will keep an eye on it to see what it does once my AIO has time to come to equilibrium. Might turn my heater off and put some more clothes on.

Are there still issues getting GPU WU's? Tried deleting and remaking my GPU work slot but it's just been saying "waiting for idle" for a while now, and there is a WU that says "Download" but it's been stuck like that for an hour or two. Was working for me last week when I started.
