 You fold for years. You dedicate 4 computers to folding. They sit idle waiting for work units. Why bother if they can't hold up their end??    🙄

Hey Unc, 

 

If you don't already have yours set this way, make sure you have the advanced flag set so you pull from the big/adv WU pool. Mine stay busy more than not by having them setup that way.

I feel your pain @dickster

 

However, since upgrading to the client Tx linked, I've found it slightly better. I try and check when I can and often find I've been waiting for a long period to get a WU. A few minutes spent Pausing/Fold seem to force a WU through, by this is not something you can do overnight obviously.

 

Out of interest how long have you been folding?  I remember you were pushing out good number back in 2000's

Not TX Redneck but it's easy. pull up FHAControl click configure in top left corner.

Click Expert tab, on left side click add In the name box type client-type be sure to type it just like I did. In the value type advanced all in lower case click OK. Doing it this way rather than each GPU will set it up for all GPUs.

Just fired my main rig up and added the flag.

Not sure when I first started folding. It was just a month or two after pitstop first posted about it. MANY years ago.

The reason I asked, it was as a result of your post back in June 2004 that I started Folding for PC pitstop in the name of your late friend Jill.

It was a while later I switched to my username.

Hey Unc, if you've still not pulled a WU yet, reboot the system(s), that almost always works.

UPDATE:  Finally got it running. Nothing else worked so I started playing with the opencl settings. It is now folding.

Sahweet! I was just about to ask if all your cards were showing in FAH Control, but it appears you found the issue. ;)

Tx is right. The 1660 is the best and newest. After that the 1060 is also pretty good. Only ones I bought new is the 1660 (stimulus check) and the 650 ti about 7 years ago. The 970 was a b stock from evga. The 1060 I got off facebook.
