TechIMO Genome@Home at #95
Congrats GilaManster, your dump of 8 genes finally made it to your stats and we are still slowly inching our way up.
#94 here we come. Care to predict virus????
Griobhta, feeling quezy yet with all of this excitement.

I wish there was a smiley that represented motion sickness. Because there is going to be a lot of that going on with the Genome team!

ok dokey smokey. Mr Predictor has spoken. As meremortal (no, not you ) all we can do is let it rock and let it roll. Griobhta, fasten your seat belt cuz more excitement is ON THE WWAAAAYYYYYY...... Boooom!!!! Target cease fire.

Is there any way to dl more then one WU with the G@H client? I have a Cel @550 computer that doesn't have a internet connection.

Selt Belt fastened, Airbag in place and parachute for good measure.
Virus I am sure there is a way as the genome project is not time dependant and you can leave a machine crunching the same wu over and over again as each time it comes up with a different result. I'd have a look but it is gone 6am and I am just finished a job application form and need sleep big time.

I am trying to -nonet right now with my work computer. The firewall won't let me connect so I am trying this out. The instructions are from Stanford.

One of the advantages of the Genome@home distributed computing project is that the client does not need to run on a machine with a constant internet connection. In fact, it can be run on machines with no internet connection at all. It wasn't a consideration in the original design of the client, but this capability was discovered by users early on in the development of the project, and further client development introduced some features which make the process of "nonetting" or "sneakernetting" slightly more convenient.
I think GilaManster is noneting right now. Maybe he can give better info on it.

YES!!!! I will just start sending what I have once a day.
Virus, you might try d/l to a different folder and then sneaker net to the 500 cele and install the agent on the cele. When the w/u is done reverse the process and d/l the completed w/u to the folder you creared on the host machine.
That's kinda the way to sneaker net with UD Cancer. I don't know that it will work with Genome.
Is that the way you do it with ECCP?

Actually , I have modem cord hell. All the computers have internet (the ISP shall remain nameless to prevent me from being ostracized on these boards)

I read the Ars-Technica (TPS) G@H FAQ. The client will rendomly generate a new WU when it can't connect. Also sometimes it will dl more then one WU at a time. But there doesn't appear to be a way to manually dl more then one WU. For now I set up the computer using the -nonet option.
My present farm stats:
K6-2 @400 (server)
K6-2 @266 (off most of the time)
I am putting most of my pathetic farm (once was 30+ ) on G@H for now. Gotta get that second place position. I'll see about recruiting a few computers from work and other employees tomorrow.

As far as I understand it you don't need to download more than one wu for a machine that is not connected. Just let it rerun the same wu and harvest it every now and then.
now at 93 and climbing

I submitted at least 10 WUs yesturday. Only got counted for 5. They must have been duplicates since 8 of them were ramdonly generated. Or else the stanford servers are backlogged.
With those extra 5 WUs. We could have jumped into 92nd place yesturday.

I suppose if what you did was to download a WU and copy it to several machines then the initial result from each machine would be the same however when each client finished that WU it would randomly generate a new WU.
Ars Technica has a good site with info here

What had hapened was that my Athlon 500 machine at work. Has been unable to connect to the stanford server for the last week or so. It had completed 9 WU by the time I had found this out. I zipped up its directory and emailed it home. Then I unzipped it into a new directory and did a ghclient -upload.

That certainly doesn't sound right from what the faq's seem to say.
Not sure what that could be really
December 1st, 2001, 06:16 PM #15
Griobhta, cool link. Do you use the monitor? Lots of good info there! I started a 80 rotamer gene yesterday so it may be a day longer??? to complete.
December 1st, 2001, 08:20 PM #16
GilaM some of those programs do look cool but no I have never tried one. I run genome on my work machine and I keep it minimised so most of the time I hardly know its there.

92 and rising!! 91 here we come!
