  1. The real reason new hires wait weeks to get their email and shared network drive
  2. Afraid not... means I can't do development on the folding DB / Web client, need my systems running for testing and some of the uptime tests I have setup. Have the python terminal based client prototype running, but needs work.
  3. I have 25 threads running on the Marathon project. We will see how badly the folding DB suffers as it's that server doing the lifting
  4. To add too this, users that lower power settings for their card to save money folding. The Facepalm of people I see trying to fold using old mining rigs on 1X risers. Combine these with any of the above and brutal PPD.
  5. They botched the rollout... it broke the APIs of the web clinets and other integrations... they need to account for the legacy systems then try again would be my guess.
  6. Points scores etc. all come out of the F@H core client I have no say in their calculation, reward etc. I capture samples of the data reported by F@H during folds to be averaged and they fluctuate up and down while folding, they are never 100% consistent, you can see that in the charting view in the client. This means you can not really look at how your card is folding right now on a specific Work Unit PRCG and have it be 100% match of the average for the project/gpu as each WU PRCG will fold differently day to day or within the folds inside the work unit, which is w
  7. A patch has already been pushed to account for their changes Monday morning. When they did their initial update on the weekend they broke the stats / user API URLs for both clients. We applied a hotfix to get around the issue fixing it in the dark mode extension, looks like they have restored the originals finally. You need to update the extension to version 1.1.4. to see the update. Cheers
  8. Don't know what you are referring to regarding points. But I'm gonna say no, what I'm talking about is F@H orphaned some APIs their web clients use to show your total points and project descriptions. Has nothing to do with the folding engine, card performance or folding cores.
  9. @marknd59 @RollinLower I have pushed a work around for F@H in the dark to point to legacy APIs at F@H to restore the functionality of points, project etc. in my client. They have not yet fixed redirects or replacement of these APIs with their new page launches so the default web client they ship is broken. I'm also seeing the issue with little to no work on the WS or long waits for it. Hopefully they are working through the issues today. Anyways... if you force update of F@H INTD to v 1.1.4 you get most of the functionality back. Wait and see until / how they are going to fix
  10. It's not on the F@H In the Dark end... F@H appears to have broken a number of APIs and possibly the work servers.
  11. Looks like F@H is in the middle of a server and API upgrade and may have broken a little bit of everything? Is F@H working for anyone else or no?
  12. Hey, can you update the badge eligibility on the F@H LTT Dark skin?

    It got changed.

      Hi there, it has been updated and should push out over the next 24 hours to users as their clients reset.


      Sorry for the delay in response.

  13. Hello LAR_Systems.

    Got a bit of an issue I should've notified you of before -  I think my folding samples are screwing up the gpu stats.

    Many of my samples are registered as being from 5500Ms, but my GPU is actually a 5300M - it's cut down so much compared to the 5500M that I think it's unecessarily dragging the RX 5500's stats.

    Is there any way you could reclassify my 5300M results into their own category for RX 5300's/5300Ms?

      I believe this is a problem with how the AMD drivers report the cards, or how the folding at home client detects it. The same thing happens with the 6800/6800xt/6900xt all being grouped as one card.




  14. Hi all, quick update for today! For those that have not found it already, information on the site for GPUs now shows the average PPD and the separate Windows & Linux PPD averages with this more detailed information also being send to the web client so the WU Reward indicators are more fair based on the OS you're running. The web client has also had the default Start / Stop functionality stripped in favor or direct buttons that just do what you expect them to without the popup window first. For users running F@H 7.6.14 or higher this also adds a dedicated Finish button
  15. I'm going to say this was a change in Brave as the client update was little more than a refresh for the benefit of the google approval team. I would not be surprised given the purpose of the Brave browser that they don't like all the things with the way F@H browser stuff talks to the localhost / IP on a non standard port per the way the F@H service works. That all said, I do really appreciate the additional CPU samples.
