*puts on thinking cap* I'll look over some of my old logs, but sounds like your lappy certainly is acting up.

Mind sharing a little more info for me? OS (and service pack if Windows), Processor & RAM, Graphics Card make/model (only if using F@H GPU).

Might be a redundant question, but have you tried re-installing F@H or ran a Defrag lately? It sounds like minor error in bytes just looking at the errors you are having; which I'd point towards either the program itself or your harddrive.

One last tour here on the Death Star and I can retire. What was that noise?!

Uploaded client and waited until I had 3 WUs done before adding to the wiki page. (I wanted to be sure some stats were reflected.)

I used to do SETI and still support their efforts, but F@H seems much more 'useful'!

Is there somewhere that I should request the mb?

Thanks,

Welcome to Team Geekdō! You will receive the badge soon and updating the Wiki is all you need to do. I think it should come at the normal start-of-the-month rollout when GG is sent out.

When you hit 50k though you can head to http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/515588/copper-badge to request your F@H Copper Badge

For joining the Team Geekdō F@H team each month, at the start of the month, you'll get sent out 1-10GG for your efforts. This is based of your points/WUs achieved in the month previous in comparison to other members efforts for that same month.

I average about 6-8GG a month for my folding efforts

You'd be surprised actually. Even on months where I've only been able to sporadically run one of the shells (the standard app, not the GPU client) on one machine I've still came away with 6GG

I look at it as a nice little reminder each month that you're doing something beneficial And every month or so get to reward yourself with a new Microbadge

Hello all, I haven't received any GG since November for this. Is this normal? I don't want to pester or bother anyone but I'm not sure if I've somehow been 'logged out' of my FAH profile or something. Its still running on my PC (almost constantly) but I've noticed that it says "Username: Anonymous(team0)". I'm not sure if its always been like that.
Anyhoo, I'll keep folding because its for a good cause, and thanks in advance for any tips or advice!

Make sure you re-update your Username (Perhaps to Geddon, unless you used something different) and put in the Team Geekdo team number (169927) again.

Not sure how it would've wiped your details, but the sooner your details are back in the sooner you'll start getting GG again Check the Wiki as well to check that your username is still there (or perhaps for your previous one).

Thanks for the reply. Dumb question, how do I update my details? My username is Geddon but its been so long since I started FAH that I've completely forgotten how to 'log in'. I'll go and have a look now so I'm not clogging up this forum with these silly questions!

Edit- I've just looked at my stats, and its says the date of my last WU is "none", and that I haven't been active during at least the last 50 days. Not sure how its happened that I've been logged out because my stats also say that I'm still part of Team Geekdo. It just seems that the WU's that I'm currently working on are not associated with my FAH profile. Hmm, weird.

With your details cleared the app still runs. Some people are still happy just to run it anonymously so it doesn't think there's anything wrong.

You're still part of Team Geekdō because previously you did have the details in correctly, so it still reflects any previous stats that you had gained.

As for "re logging in" there's good & bad news, depending on your end. If you didn't choose to create your own encryption key you can just put in your name again (once again; I assume it's "Geddon") and your team (169927).

If you did choose an encryption key & you haven't got the details anywhere (it will give you an error trying to use the Username if this is the case when you go to load the app after saving details) then you'll have to choose a new username.

If the latter turns out to be what you have to do, just update your details on the Wiki to change the username for F@H and match it to your BGG username to make sure you still get your GG for contributions to Team Geekdō. (Edit: URL for Wiki; http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Folding@Home? )

But before you going doing the above I'd perhaps suggest heading to the Stanford page to see if there is a new version of the client that you use to download; http://folding.stanford.edu/English/Download

This may be teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, but were you asking a question to which this is the answer:

Right click on the FaH icon (this sits on the right hand side, near to the clock, on my system, but obviously this may be different on others!). Click on Configure, which brings up a dialogue box. Enter your name and team number in the boxes. This associates the folding you're doing with your username. I'm not sure if you have to have this information entered when you download a unit for it to count, but at worst you'll start being credited the next time you start one.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question, but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly realize what you were hoping for.

I read the wiki and can't figure out how to credit for folding (if i'm even doing it right), or to tell if i've even gotten started

I downloaded the Client and the "Configure" Window popped up.

I put in my Username (Mogrix) and Team Number (169927) and left Passkey Blank and clicked ok.

Anytime i try to view my "User Statistic"s or my progress so far it always says 0% complete or a blank page.

It's been running for like 2 hours.

Can someone point me to a "hold your hand" guide or help me get started please?

Statistics don't show progress; only completed Work Units (WUs). I'm assuming you've only just started and chances are you haven't finished your first WU.

Stats update once every 24hrs so if you have completed a WU then it may not be reflecting. Once your F@H stats are showing that you have completed one WU (at least) follow the link above to the Wiki and update it to show you have completed WU and awaiting Microbadge.

Your stats will show soon; WUs can take as long as a few days on some PCs to complete even for small WUs. Patience & perserverance, any more problems head back here

Thanks for the help. Yes, i just started only a few hours ago.

But as far as "registering" -- me just putting in my user name and Team number, leaving the Passkey blank and clicking ok is all i needed to do, then just let it run?

I'll continue to run it and see how things go. Even if i don't get credit at least i'm helping the cause.

If you mouse over the F@H icon in your system tray you should get something like:

CPU - F@H: Working (xxx/250)


The xxx should increment over time.

On the app side of things, yes. But you also need to update the Wiki (sorry on phone, look a few posts back of mine or goto original post on this thread for it).

Once you've updated the Wiki you'll start earning your Geekgold monthly

I don't have an icon on my taskbar, and even on the FAH window there is no option to 'configure'. I've also uninstalled FAH and re-installed the latest version, but when I open the program it still says "username: anonymous(team 0)".
Can I now blame Windows Vista?
Anyway thanks for the help, I'll keep running FAH because the results are more important than the GG, but the GG is nice too.

Being somewhat new to folding myself, my only humble recommendation is to double check your folding username and make sure you are with Team Geekdo, 169927.

Just completed my 6th WU...and making progress for the team!

All i did when i Downloaded the client was type in my username in the configure option from the client under the "User" Tab. then clicked ok.

Is this all i needed to do to "register"?
