I'm falling a little behind...or is it my machines?
My office comp is an old P3, and it's clicking away at some smaller WUs...I'm in my house right now so I'll post specs on that one later.
Here my two older, slower comps are folding relatively medium sized WUs...but they're taking some time on them.
Comp 1 (Home-Desktop)
Celeron 1.3 / 384 MB
p890_p53dimer890; still going since downloading on 8/12...one step every 110 minutes. Seems kind of long for a not-so-big WU. (92% completed).
Comp 2 (Home-Laptop); Old Toshiba Satellite running Windows 98.
Celeron .5 / 128 MB
p2008_BBA5; downloaded 8/11/05, still going, 70 % completed.
All of my computers (including my office comp) are second-hand used, at least several years old, and while not very fast, are quite reliable and do the tasks which I require of them (spreadsheets, schedules, e-mail, photo processing and PowerPoint), and some games to keep my kids occupied every now and then.
No high-speed. No cable or DSL. No network. Nothing very fancy. Just downright and dirty machines that (eventually) get the job done.
Are my numbers pretty much normal? It seems some of the other smaller WUs (like p1800 series) fold a lot faster than the medium/ larger ones. I have large WUs disabled, so as not to grab something that would take less than forever to complete.
Any advice or pointers? That is, besides getting new machines. These are still working fine for me. Though the college kids who were here a couple weeks ago kept waving G3 and G4 Powerbooks in front of my face, trying to convert me.
