I'm just getting "No WUs available for this configuration" :(

On their forum means "nothing to do" by the looks of it.

@exxos Mine took a good while to pick up any WUs, if you open the FAH app and look at the log you'll see it trying to connect, and eventually it does. Then the fans start to spin up!!

We need a kick up the arse too...

They stopped flights to China from here and I have colleagues who came back via Singapore or Helsinki. Nobody asked them where they'd been when they got to the UK border.

I've heard this distastefully called Kung Flu.

I think the problem is that it may have mutated already into a second strain which will complicate matters.
It has mutated into many strains: https://nextstrain.org/ncov

Some interesting analysis at https://www.fagain.co.uk/node/60

My PC was clocking at 4.2GHz for 8 cores... Of course the fan noise is getting a little bit irritating now :roll: So I down clocked the cores to 3.0GHz... the time jumped from 8 hours to 10 hours basically... Fans quieter now and hasn't really impacted run time to much...

EDIT:

Bizzare.. ok so I had it using 4 cores at 4.2GHz, it had 8 hours to go... Then 2.4GHz was 10 hours... I now have 3.0GHz on 6 cores and 2 hours to go..

EDIT2:

Now its back to 10 hours.. I don't think its very accurate :)

Yeah, even my GPU is running rings around my 4.2ghz 8 core... though GPU running flat out on my "old" card is a bit of a concern for me.

Currently there is only a job running on the CPU. :shrug:

Hmm yeah odd, my CPU's are now maxing out and producing 83k PPD. GPU is on 101k so not so much of a difference now.

Finally got a spare machine built just for folding. No GPU but happy to throw 16 CPUs at it. May be able to remedy the GPU situation, will have to have a dig around, see what I have spare.
