    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    When I got my new machine in December I could never get the client running. Tonight I tried again and have it running. I have the multi core console client running but can only seem to get one running at a time. Well, better one than none.

    The volunteers outperformed the various software programs in this project, but that is no surprise, because AI researchers have known all along that, so far, humans are better at pattern recognition.

    While IBM's Deep Blue has beaten Boris Kasparov, the best chess player on Earth, no program so far can beat a real master at Go, because that ancient Chinese/Japanese game is far, far more complex than chess. The reasons are complex and not fully understood, but at least one reason is because humans can recognize patterns better than computers, at least for now.

    What is true for Go is true for folding. Well, Leon, a bot can't write something like this, only a genius Mensa member. :D

    Should be, yes. Should start up and run on its own, with no intervention from you.

    FYI, Team GA is still plugging along on this project.

    As a team we've completed 31,599 work units for an aggregate score of [font="'trebuchet ms"]7,558,934

    Our team is ranked [/font][font="'trebuchet ms"]866 out of 203418.

    I'm sure this will continue long after GA closes up shop later this month.

    I've got a quad core CPU. Is there any way to get each core to handle a separate work unit?

    I don't think they do that anymore, but they do run "harder" units. There are toggles. If you have it installed already, use -smp and -advmethods.
