The work units can take a long time to complete (days or weeks, depending on the power of the machine and how often it is switched on)... the one you're working on has 300 steps, and you've so far done 204... once the unit is completed, you will show up on the stats list the next time it is automatically updated.

HTH


BTW - if anyone has one of the compatible graphics cards, I urge you to give the GPU client a try.. it can churn through 10000 step WUs in a day or two.

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart.

You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness.

It´s not that hard, actually. You can find help on the internet, for example: http://www.pro-linux.de/work/newbie/installieren.html. Or if you´re using *buntu, you should check if FAH is one of the applications that can be installed via the graphical interface (the Add/Remove thingy).

You won't get added until after you've completed the work unit (you're 204 of 300) and the stats job has run on their servers.

Thanks for the replies guys!
Guess I'l just have to wait...
I've configured it as "core priority: Lowest possible" because my laptop is getting slow (+5 years old). Does anyone have an idea how high I could configure my 'CPU Usage Percent' without slowing down too much but better than 'slowest'?

I'd keep it pretty low on a laptop to keep the heat down.

Thanks! Heating up is already quite a big problem, so I'll just keep the configuration like it is now.

When I started, I was at 0/2500. I let it run all night, and now I am on 24/300. I assume this means I completed a work load? But I don't see my name on the BGG page. (Howitzer)

You should see in the FAHlog.txt (or FAHlog-Prev.txt if it's something older) what actually happened to your WU's.

the status page does not update in realtime, if you check it, you'll see that the date of the last WU recorded is 2009-09-27 04:13:11.

also sometimes it may take a while for a completed WU to be transferred to the f@h server.

i think your computer probably went to sleep between these steps. you may want to change your Energy Saver settings to Never go to sleep

Re: Team Geekdõ is #1 (well 1%) but still needs your help!
I have given out all of the August incentive rewards except to these f@h usernames:

absent_handed
biocompare
kristopherolsen
muffster

those are not valid names here and they are also not listed on the wiki page so i don;t know who to give the to. if you are one of those people (or know one) drop me a geekmail.

also, if you think you were supposed to get some for August and didn't get it, drop me a geekmail.

I signed up. Hopefully we can help those running the project to better understand (and then to prevent/treat/cure) Alzheimer's and dementia.

How do I change it to run as low priority on a mac?

on a Mac you want the one labelled "osx binary". that's not going to be a graphical program though, you're going to have to run it from the command line.

Re: Team Geekdõ is #1 (well 1%) but still needs your help!
NICE.

I recieved my 18 gg earlier.
I was wondering where that came from. Thanks!

I have to move in a few days. It's only across the parking lot to a larger place. I'll unplug the computer last thing and set it up first thing to keep going, assuming my internet is up and running properly.

I'm going to be pretty irritated if I have to wait too long. I've been running nonstop since I signed up and am in the top ten. I'd hate to lose my place.
