    Idk how some of my WU got sent to Stuart Hall School, but I feel like driving there and taking them back. 😡
    Because that's definitely how points work.

    You can set your client to advanced or beta mode to get WU that aren't (quite) validated yet and have a higher chance of failing, but there is more available work so you will most likely see a more consistent stream of WUs.

    You enable it by going into the advanced control application and then to the settings of you client, under advanced you can set an extra option called client-type and value of advanced. If you only want it for a certain slot you can also add it in your slot configuration at the bottom under extra options.

    Remember, fellas: 
    Games are temporary.
    Imaginary folding points and the benefits of research? Permanent.

    I use chrome remote desktop while i'm out, works well enough to keep an eye on the folding clients.

    Wooot!! Passed 50k points today!
    Got a huge 48hr CPU WU 2 days ago and it finished about 5hrs ago (netting me some 13k points), now chewing on another 10hr one (and about halfway) The current one is Project 13850, but can't recall the big one and I don't have an Advanced client (only the basic one). Mind, this is on an ancient AMD A8-3870 APU 😲 (headless, Devuan Linux, 32GB RAM, no graphics drivers installed)

    If you dont get assigned a WU try to delete the slot affected in the advanced settings. save ... wait until the slot disappears in the "work quene" section, then add the slot again.
    it should only take up to 2 minutes to get assigned a new one then... at least this is my experience!

    generally, folding on a laptop is not reccomended but if it's a scrap laptop then you might as well
    if you're having that many overheating issues i advise you repaste the machine. the 950m will complete work units very very slowly and your cpu may actually be a better contributor but you can only try these things
    nonetheless, clean it out, re-paste it. if you have a heatsink sitting around anywhere, put that ontop of the charger brick as those tend to get pretty toasty

    Limit your framerate to something like 120. You'll be pushing 200-300FPS which will tank your GPU.

    I've had 4 systems going with 12 slots.  I only got a few WUs overnight and this morning.  I think it is time for me to throw in the towel and just go to the spare slots on the usual server.  I'm just pushing lots of wattage to do nothing at this point, like I have been most of the event, and am so far out of point possibility that even if the contest was the driving factor, I couldn't compete anyway now even if instant WUs were a thing.

    With the advent of COVID-19 WUs we have decided to launch an emergency response of our own. It's time to gear up our clocks and push again. For once more, united we stand, core to core, shoulder to shoulder. Not simply for glory,  but to take the fight to COVID-19. We will not sit by with idle GPUs. We will not go gently into that good night. We will take up arms for all of mankind. This is the oath we will all take to ourselves by signing up here.
    We will be folding for 14 days, the recommended isolation period for those with suspected COVID-19.
    MINI GIVEAWAY! (checked if okay with @leadeater)
    I have created a Gleam.io giveaway to entice people to share the Folding Event on twitter!

    Please feel free to enter!!!!
    Folding@home is a network of volunteer computers distributed around the world that aims to perform biomedical research with the single intent of helping to further understand and develop cures for a range of diseases such as; Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's. The exact research that is done is simulating the 'folding' of proteins in the body, this is important because the function of a protein id directly related to its physical shape. And this, when the protein is created in the body it needs to reshuffle its shape to get into the correct structure to perform its task. Many illnesses can be linked to faulty proteins in the body such as many cancers and neurological issues, along with a wide number of other general health concerns. This network if compared with the TOP500 list of supercomputers would fall into 2nd, Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems, with a speed of approximately 98.7petaFLOPS. It would be 50% faster than the fastest x86 computer currently listed on the top500. 
    But this is not why we are here, we are here to join the legion of other folders from around the globe who have taken up the fight against COVID-19.
    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common across the world.  These viruses can cause mild symptoms ranging from a fever and cough to more serious conditions such as severe pneumonia, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. 
    In December 2019, a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan City, China.  This virus has now spread to other countries.  The UK Chief Medical Officers have declared the risk to the public to be moderate. But the risk to individuals remains low.
    PASSKEYS! (they're really important)
    Don't forget to get yourself a passkey from the link below to ensure that you hit the points requirement, the passkey is a feature that was added a while ago to the Folding Client that helps to authenticate each user on the network, an added bonus of this is the fact that it allows you to qualify for QRB(Quick Return Bonus) Points, QRBs are extra points you earn for submitting work units more quickly, such as if you have faster hardware or let the client fold full time, rather than on idle. QRB credit is awarded after 10 WUs have been submitted. You can get your passkey from the link below.
    This is just a PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always. 
    Check your stats out here! Bare in mind it can take some time for your first WUs to appear so leave it a day or two.
    Please follow the guides below to help with set-up and troubleshooting. These are mostly older guides but are still quite useful for most things, we are working on an improved guide and are hoping to have it ready for prime time withing the next month but in meantime these will have to do. Big Thanks to @Metallus97 for giving me a hand with the FAQ for the event and taking some of the load from me.

    Well guys, I got in from work last night and just crashed, I've awoken to the foldatron being offline and my partner has taken a bad turn. We're waiting for the nurse to come out. In the meantime it's meds, breakfast and then carting the server down stairs so I can work out what's wrong. Let's hope his nothing serious eh.

    I'm coming from Colorado, so I'm looking at 29 hours but I think it'll be worth it to have a nice monitor and PC there. Also I plan on exploring canada and have planned a longer trip to allow me to see more of Canada. I'd definitely recommend finding a travel buddy, it'll help the drive go faster. Good luck!
