    For a little bit of CPU time I prefer to run Folding@Home ;)

    How does this program work. Does it run on spare CPU cyles or something?

    yes, but us stupid modders spend soo much money on windows and cathodes that we're stuck with no money, nicely modded cases, and no cpu power.

    check our stats on sept8 and sept9 though, look for the names profezzorbob@mailcity.com, ardelmius@ something whatever
    beltane@ something, and a bg.
    Massive rc5 dump :)

    how long does an average UD agent unit take to complete, cos the fist few seemed to fly, and the last 2 have taken about 10 hours a go, on a 700 duron

    In my experience, it varies really.

    Some things take three hours on my 1.4GHz t-bird, others take 19 hours.

    Just depends on the complexity of the packet.

    Either way, you still get points equivalent to your system performance.

    thanks, just upgraded to a 1.4GHz T-bird, see if that makes a diff :)

    I used to run seti, but i think this is a bit more worthwhile.

    yeah, they'd slow each other down - all these sorts of programs utilise CPU cycles that are 'spare' so if you're running one there won't be any spare any more

    be warned that these progs can hold you CPU at 100% usage for as long as you're running them, I fried a K6-3 450 this way a month ago while running distributed.net's RC5 program for 4 days in a row

    As long as you have adiquate cooling for your CPU, you'll be fine. :) All of my computers have the UD THINK agent running, thus 100% cpu usage, and they're on 24/7.
