View Full Version : Gauntlet Time

05-18-2003, 01:40 AM
Let's start a guantlet in OGR!
Right after the end of the FAH week 4 gauntlet? (Thursday at 22:30 PST)
That would be Friday 17:00 hours PST or (Saturday May 31st, 00:00 UTC) to start.
1st stats would show up Saturday 16:59 hours PST, (Saturday May 31st, 23:59 UTC).
Say for two weeks? Plenty of time to switch clients to ;)

05-18-2003, 01:52 AM
Need tips on the absolutely most tweaked settings to run the client with, on windows and *nix flavors.
Core B (1) seems to be faster on AMD rigs :)
Linkages to the clients, utilities etc.
Are there any good client monitors? Does it even need any?
This is a most excellent client ever, everyone should be able to run it! :D

05-18-2003, 02:21 AM
It is a very kewl client.

Run it with -install to install as service, runs as a service even under W98.

Set and forget, and watch the points rack up. Never had it crash.

05-18-2003, 12:13 PM
w00t! Sounds like fun. The dates look good to me as I should be in town. I'll take a look at the client before hand!

Goooooooooooooooo FDC! Let's get this thing off the ground!!!!

:bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:

Yummy.... more firepower to this project.

Alright people, buckle up and be prepared.

Time to kicka$$ :moon:

05-18-2003, 03:56 PM
How often and when are the stats updated on the pproxy stats?
Death to you all, it will be. :|party|: :neener: :harhar:

05-18-2003, 04:00 PM
Will Dyyryath play this time? :Pokes:
Will Condor come play with us? Does he have enough boxen to go around? :notworthy
Stay tuned right here for current party news ! :jester:

05-18-2003, 07:16 PM
Do we want to wait for one week after the FAH gauntlet,
to give everyone a rest before we start the new DNET gauntlet?
Speak up and be heard. :drums:

05-18-2003, 07:43 PM
I'm seriously open to either one as I will actually be around on those dates. Guess I'm gonna have to do some reading.

Howard says the new Distributed Folding Client will be released "Real Soon Now"

If he releases it during the Gauntlet, I vote we terminate the gauntlet ASAP so we can all get REAL BUSY and jump on DF.

Of course, if he releases before the Gauntlet starts, then I vote we postpone it.

Where did those pesky brats, Phil and Beyond, get off to anways? :Pokes:

05-20-2003, 10:30 AM
Now Howard say "early June".
At the current production rate, looks like we will finish the current run (10 billion) on June 10th.
This gives us plenty of time for some FUN and one more good run at OGR.
The gauntlet is not a 1 vs 1 per se, but more of a Team effort to go higher than we have before!
Get ready to rumble! :smoking: :D

Here's the snapshot of the starting gate. Kinda big :(

05-24-2003, 10:28 AM
so when are these stats updated? I can't even see myself on the team yet. I have no idea if there is any progress or not???:bang:


05-24-2003, 10:44 AM
I believe that the "official" stats are updated once a day at 5:00pm.

However, if you go here FDC OGR STATS (http://stats.allaboutuptime.net/ogr/byemail.html) you will find updates on a more frequent basis. I believe every hour but I could be off on the increments.

05-24-2003, 03:32 PM
did you go to dnet and get your password and then join the team? I'd of thought you would have been on there :confused: :confused:

05-24-2003, 04:09 PM
Here are your stats http://stats.distributed.net/participant/psummary.php?project_id=25&id=421201, you are in the database. You just need to join the team. Remember, after you join a team it won't show up until dnet's next update.

05-24-2003, 05:55 PM

acording to these stats Im on the team?

I jiond and got the password yesterday?

05-24-2003, 05:56 PM
Those stats just indicate that you have submited WU's through his proxy. You'll show up on our team on dnet's stats today after stats update most likely.

05-24-2003, 07:56 PM
ok cygnussphere, you show up in the official stats as a bonafied Free-DC member! :thumbs:

05-25-2003, 09:42 PM
Our Team is now in 255th place! :cheers:
That's up (^5) places :|party|:
Great job everyone!!! :smoking: :thumbs:

IB... you definitely have some serious firepower to deploy man.

I am so awe with your production and your continuous boost in helping the team to reach Top 100.

You are my HERO :notworthy :notworthy

05-27-2003, 03:33 AM
I've started getting OGR-24 stubs again, looking back seems I got some yesterday as well


Not going to help with the Gauntlet...

PY 222
05-27-2003, 12:37 PM
Me too!

I have been crunching OGR-24 stubs for the past 16 hours, I think.

This is bad!

05-27-2003, 04:23 PM
With them trying to finish OGR-24, this may not have been the best time for a gauntlet, as they may randomly interspluice 24 units into your 25 slugfest! BTW, you guys are flying!

Good Luck to you! :cheers:

Remember to :machgun: down some :mouserun: for me, will ya?

05-27-2003, 07:48 PM
Good thing I have a LARGE cache of OGR-25 stubs then. ;) :thumbs:

Thanks mate. It was a little something that I found on one of my machines.

Besides, my :dump: weren't even close to your regular daily output.

So I should be :notworthy to you... OH MASTER!

Condor! You dog! :swear: You took the lead in the ogr25 gauntlet! :bang:

Come on guys, wake up!

We need to really pound on OGR harder now since most of us are going to be redeployed onto DF Phase II soon.

Lets make full use of the Gauntlet before its over ok.

/me poke IB to check if he is still awake :Pokes:

Good job to everyone that pitched in and brought us to below 200! :thumbs:

Will you be posting the result of the gauntlet? Like individual stats rankings over the time period? Not that I'm counting or anything:D I'd just like to see what they were.

I am going to miss OGR!

But I shall return to bring the team to Top 100!

It has been said, now let it be done! :thumbs:

Way to go everybody, you guys did a great job. :cheers:

I did watch the stats very closely but unfortunately I did not record any of it down.

It was just basically daily reports of how high we climbed on a given day but on that note, did you guys know that we actually climbed ~800 positions in team rankings in around 4 months?

That is an amazing feat for a small team like ours.

So a pat on the back and a cold one for all of us, courtesy of IB's cyber fridge :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Well actually when you posted the origional screen shot and anounced the gauntlet start I figured it got saved for comparison to the final. I may not have understood that only thing kept track of was team progress. Anyway no big.
