F14R – Fold one for Redline.

F14R – Fold one for Redline.

OK guys this is something I’ve been thinking about for a while…

When I first started folding, I found it quite frustrating that for my first 10 hard earned Work Units (WU) I only received a very small amount of points because they didn’t qualify for a Quick Return Bonus (QRB ). After you’ve crunched your first 10 WU – then you start to earn potentially big points because you’ve qualified for QRB.

So I started to think about how many folders may start and then give up because their initial scores are so small. Then they probably look at the leader board and think they’ll never achieve big scores and they give up. Also the occasional folders, who just want to pump out the odd WU here and there, have no way of climbing the leader board quickly.

If we had a push like Tom did a while ago, which attracted lots of new folders, each of those folders would have to go through the initial “frustration” of not scoring "big" for their first 10 WU’s. That is potentially alot of missed points for the team.

So I decided to create a new user for the team, F14R, which I have populated with 10 WU’s. This user can be, and I hope will be, used by anyone. You will earn QRB straight away and hopefully it will be fun to try and get this user on to the first page of the Redline leader board.

You will need to enter the following information into your folding client(s):-

User ID – F14R (this is case sensitive)

Passkey – ba9caaa619e58f26f6549b715f053d9c

Team – 98860

You can get the latest folding client here.

If you want to show F14R stats, put this line in your sig - "http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/sigs/sigimage.php?u=647797"

It will look like this:-



If you prefer the look of the Folding@Home Badgemaker you can put this line in your sig - "http://piro.pirocast.net/badge/fah01/fah02/0/214/14/0/0/0/0/0/0/0/0/0/0/255/255/255/647797.png"

It will look like this:-



The EOC stats page for F14R can be found here.

Hope this will encourage a few more people to get into folding, let’s see if we can rock that first page.

I'll look into getting all my rigs (currently a i3-550 with a -now fixed- gts450 and a 8320 with a 7870) fired up to help. I might also be able to get one of the old(~2006) dual xeon servers I have at my work for occasional folding duties.

-edit- contributing now on my main rig . Will look into making my other rig a decent 24/7 silent folding machine.

Fantastic, you should be able to kick out some awesome numbers with that rig. When you configure your 780 you need to set an advanced flag option. That way you will get core 17 WU which are worth loads of points.

This is a good idea indeed.

A question I have though: What do you mean by this:
Quote:

Do you mean among the top 100 in the team or something? If that is important I can contribute under that name for two or three days, and that should be enough... But I can't imagine that this is what you meant.

I took that as top 100 or 1st page of the Redline leader board. it should happen relatively fast as there is already 20K+ points for the new folder and the top 100 is at 25K or so.

Very nice sheroo!!

Yep Steve, that's what I meant. I'm just trying to give the guys who only fold occasionally, or just want to try it out a means of getting QRB straight away. Trying to get F14R into the top 100 of the Redline leader board is hopefully a bit of an incentive.

That's a pretty awesome rig you got there. I've no idea what sort of points you'll get with an iMac - but all contributions are much appreciated.
