Thoughts about that?  Change the thread title slightly to pull interest?

I don't see Covid or the Consortium in my Configure options.

Selecting "Any disease" is the way to go according to instructions in the original link.

It's also currently a story on /.

I’m in - just got it set up and running. Dedicated my 1070Ti to it when I’m not using it - not worried about shortening the life, since I plan on upgrading in a few months anyhow, and I really only use it to play World of Tanks these days.

Holy crap it seems to be fast. The spreadsheet linked earlier said 800 points per day if I was reading it right, but the client is estimating 85,000 points per day and is still increasing.

Hope it helps :)

ETA: Well over 100k estimated now, and still increasing quickly.

Welcome to the crew. Our Team Ranking is 74 of 229960 in the world.  I like to think some of these academic libs melt down when they see us in the top 100  

Also, here is a good site to track the yours, teams, and others points.

I am not 100% sure.. but after I added this to the config today, My points jumped significantly. And acquired the CV-19 work units. Could be a coincidence. Figure I would pass that on. A user recommended doing it but didn't explain the reasons.  Also, make sure you get a passkey for your username with [email protected]

How do you set it to only work COVID-19?

First time trying it, I joined the AR15.com team. GTX 1070 and i5-6600k. I kind of feel like I'm sitting next to a space heater .

I requested a passkey when I first started, but the email has yet to arrive (4+ hours).

There has been a rush of new donors, so their systems are a little overloaded.  They actually ran out of Work Units yesterday, so the priority has been generating new ones.

Joined today.  Two 2080TIs and an i9-9900K.  A bit more load than the normal counter strike and COD:MW.

I had work units until late last night, now I'm idle awaiting a download.

Finally got a WU late last night for one system, but my two other systems are still waiting.

Just joined. Seems they are quick. Within about 15 minutes of downloading folding got a unit and then joined the team.

It's hit and miss, I've had some back to back WUs and I've had to wait 1/2 a day for others.

I just joined (the site and the team).

FYI this thread is impossibly hard to find. Why isn't it in General>Math and Science?

It could be the thread was started before the math and science forums came into being.

I just started back folding yesterday when I saw Arfcom has a team. I used to do it a long time ago for PC Pit Stop, which I think is defunct now.

I also just recently ordered a new to me computer.  Should be able to really crank out the WUs with that thing. Time will tell though. I'll put the Tesla to good use though regardless!

@aeroworksxp

What system/systems are you using to crank out 3.5 million points per day?
Link Posted: 7/10/2020 11:14:03 PM EST
Folding, after a 10-year hiatus and a new build. Only a modest system though.

It all helps, but newer stuff does more per kWh.
