    Top 10,000 in the world, almost top 1,000 on the team, almost 200,000,000 points! 😄

    A few cool "milestones". I've entered the top 2,500 in the team rankings, in the top 20,000 of the world, and in less than 2 weeks since my last post, I did over 200 work units on my own. 😄 
    Difference in team rank was over 1,500, and difference in overall rank is 9,000 😄
    Next goal is 1,500 team rank, 15,000 rank overall, and getting over 100 million.
    **Note: I've turned my power from full to medium. Due to cold and an inefficient heater for my house... I'm consuming around 300kw of power a day right now.... and my electric bill is predicted to be $550 right now if I keep going as I was. Still doing stuff, but instead of a constant 6.5 million points, I'm ranging between 2 and 6.

    Not to double post and all, but the 6.3 million estimate was exceeded! 😄 6.9 million points (roughly) 😄 Heading toward the top 😄

    Screaming through the points after finally getting my new vidya card in my new system. Was getting around 2.5 million a day from both my desktop and laptop combined. Now my estimate is 6.3 million according to the folding@home app with just my new desktop. Hope to fly up some rankings 😄

    Been a little less than 3 weeks of helping with the F@H stuff. Now I'm at 15 million+ points and 300 work units completed. Seems that things have slowed down a TON this last week though. I've noticed on both my systems that it's hardly ever getting any GPU work units. I guess CPU work units are more important at the moment and do take longer to do, but doesn't help much with the point count.(5 million first week, 7 million second, 3 million third), but not much I can do about it. Anyway, let's see how long my systems can keep up 5 million or more a week average I guess.

    My milestone is that in the first week of folding I've gotten over 5 million points.
     
    That said, I was using two systems (desktop and laptop) but still. I was actually hoping for at least 10 million since the two systems combined when working say around 2.5-2.8 million, but sadly a considerable amount of time they were just sitting there waiting for work units and finding none. Either way, I'd say that's a considerable amount for just two systems to do in that time span

     
    EDIT: I also would like to mention these two systems have been my heater for the entire apartment for the past week as well. At one point I was up at 79f degrees, and I can promise that they use much less electricity than my heater, which seems to run constantly as well

    Caliber Mengsk got a reaction from minibois in Confused about Arduino (microcontroller) terms   
    I know this is an older post at this point, but someone posted just the other day and I thought I'd chime in since I have flashed a bootloader on a custom pcb arduino myself a few years ago. It's not super hard, and is pretty well documented on the arduino website itself. https://www.arduino.cc/en/tutorial/arduinoISP
     
    I should say, It's not hard if you have another arduino that you don't mind flashing to, to make it and ISP programmer. Just read through the entire page once, then go back to the parts that tell you what you actually have to do. **NOTE: I did this when the Arduino Uno was new, so I programmed a 328pu. Not quite the same chip, but should be easy enough to convert the same knowledge from that page. I should also note, I was flashing my own chips with and FTDI to USB converter cable. If you want usb functionality for programming with just a normal usb cable you'll have to have a circuit in place to transform from the serial signal to USB. I have not done this myself, so I can't tell you how to do it or give a link.
     
    Personally at this point I'm just using Wemos Lolin d32 chips for my projects. They cost $5 each, are arduino compatible, have an ESP32 chip (meaning built in wifi/bluetooth), and even have a built in battery circuit (including charging through the micro-b port). Don't know if your project supports a premade chip like that or if you are doing it cause you just want to make your own circuit. They are quite useful though. They also can run at 240MHz and have 4MB of flash space. You do have to reference an external board library, but it's not super hard to set up. Anyway, good luck with your project!

    Caliber Mengsk got a reaction from Strata in Nvidia Said We Couldn't Game On This...   
    Just curious, without the modified driver, could this be used for a streaming setup as a video compression card? I mean, yeah, draws a lot of power, but for $60-$70, having a dedicated card for video compression for a real time system like streaming, could be worth it rather than having to set up a second system for high resolutions. Could also allow for higher resolution than cheaper video capture devices (around the same price point) if it does work.
