Back when Bitcoin started I was a heavy F@H contributor and was on OCN working to World domination (Which we accomplished!)

pffft

team33 FTW


BTW, open Zika sprints on WCG right now, got some fans running

Lol.
Team Picard for seti, f@h, g@h and a few others.

When did that team start?


Born out if NinjaMicros, which produced GFDs (gold finger devices) which plugged into the Athlon II(?) processor to change the multiplier.
Would have been around 1999.

W0w, I forgot all about slot A multiplier adapters. At the time I think I was doing the 370/slot1 for builds and BH6 (Malaysian(chip) 300 to 450 OC)thing. Talk abut bang for your buck, that might have been the best off all time, 939 comes close though.


so

I'm not sure how to say this...


I am glad I am already drunk right now

dude was...um...difficult to get along with...

From a few threads I read, Karma.
I never interacted myself.

I see how you guys felt about him. Smiley
https://hardforum.com/threads/7im.1305957/

Weird how when someone dies people don't want to speak bad about them.
If they were dicks when alive I say the world is better off.
Fuck em.


I think mine is LONG gone. Had a Alpha heatsink strapped to that thing too (modded on my uni workshop) and even toyed with a Peltier element Wink. Oh and put lights on the case. Back in 1999. Now it's all so cliche... Can't even buy a mobo without lights on board :/

I don't even remember peltier elements being available back that far!
I never got around to playing with them, IIRC they were pretty inefficient compared to water.
How did your pan out?

I havn't looked at the stats  in years and just checked and DAMN your right you guys have been decimated. Yeah they screwed the points system right up with GPU's, N00bs would catch up in a few months with a new gpu, it was a real joke. But I folded from 2000-2006 or so Anon with 6 rigs before joining a team. I've had alot of family die from cancer and thats all I could really do about it.

I remember when EVGA was bribing and I guess now there are 2 F@H coins for it?

I was just looking at the stats too, making me pretty sad seeing all the old user names, we were a thing.

I know it is really about the science, but guys had tens of thousands of dollars tied up in those big AMD 4Ps and Stanford fucked them just as other opportunities to do science were coming on the scene.  Then 7im started deleting people's posts and threads on the F@H forum.  Some pretty serious personal farms found new places to contribute and we just never coalesced around a single project the way we had around F@H.

I should dig out the T shirt and cry a little.

yeah i stopped around when a lot of fighting (some about a possible amd handicap) and snobbery came about. then the point system fiasco. mt last folding only rig had a couple gtx285s and a overclocked q9550(?) cant remember exact model. was a lot of fun. till it wasnt.

man remember the chimp challenges? heh

my original contribution to science was seti@home on a 386 or 486. so long ago i cant remember what machine really.





I remember getting 6ppd on a k5@166 chip but thats the oldest cpu I remember folding on.


GFDs (gold finger devices) which plugged into the Athlon II(?) processor to change the multiplier.

fuck me

there's a blast from the past...wow

that would be an overclocking artifact I would like to have

there was a pin you could isolate or snap off on the pentium northwood B and change its multiplier (or fsb?). might not of been the B model either come to think about it. a,b,c model northwoods all used a different fsb, that pin said which one to use. or something like that lol

only remember cuz i tried it and it didnt work. as i broke my pin it was a major pita to get it to make contact again. i use a piece of copper wire sticking out of the socket as  i recall.

Nice hack, I did the same by cutting the end of a needle off, thats one nice thing about sockets. I was all AMD during P4, That was the worst Intel flop ever, I went from Dual PIII (Rambus baby!) to Socket 462.

I should maybe do this in PM, but at the moment I don't care.

Hueristic, thank you for working through this with me.  It is pretty obvious right now that I have been suppressing how much the end of that scene hurt.  I used to hang out on IRC with those guys on the regular...

I have said before, and I still believe, one of the things that really gives me hope is that quite a few of the early Bitcoin folks are OG folders, fundamentally altruistic individuals.

This world could do with an elite class with something other than their own quarterly gains in view.

I completely agree man, Folding for 6 long years by myself and then noticing there were teams was a blessing. I really dove in and met some of the greatest people this earth has to offer. Sometimes the competition would get the best of them but it was all good for the research in the end. I only stopped because I could no longer justify the cost and my income had changed dramatically so I was bleeding out and not seeing any progress on their end. I do regret not switching over 2 machines I was planning on to BTC back then but we were slugging it out for first (with you guys IIRC) and I also had had a injury setback so I just let the systems stay running.

Dammit, I just spent 5 minutes trying to find the thread I did on making the Jade Monkey Head and it looks like its gone. OCN fucked up the board pretty bad the last 10 years and lost alot of shit. I'll upload some shots for you.

easiest overclocks (well aside from the bios stuff from the pentium II on up) was the jumpers on the 486. just pick 25,33 or 40, then select the multiplier via jumper and see if it booted. cant remember if my 386 could do that. before that there was the clock crystal replacement on the IBM AT. never tried it on mine though.

dont remember what the cpus were that you just added more L2 cache via stuffing chips in empty sockets on the mobo. 386 im guessing.

still have some of those cpus/motherboards and all the stuff needed to boot them. part of my Piles of Old Crap Collection.


Those AMD 5x86 chips could be OC'd massively on 486 boards (socket 3 IIRC) like you said set jumpers and watch a 120mhx become 160 with no issues on a stock cooler! AFA crystals, yup easy as well, pop out a 33mhz and throw in a 40 crystal on most 386 chips and you were out to the races again on stock sinks and then upgrading to a Cyrix 486 with a L2 cache bump was a great upgrade on the same 386 Mobo! I remeber using evergreen socket adapters to run 386sx chips on 286 mobo's and I think the last 8088 4.77mh upgrade was a 8mh (Damn I can't remember the name anymore).

IIRC my first OC was on the P6 Celeron from 266Mhz to 333Mhz using an FSB overclock from 66Mhz.
So that was a really decent OC and got an instant 33% gain.
I do also recall doing something with a pencil on an Athlon but can't quite remember the details.

Yes, it did happen, I remember it was mentioned in the forums at that time.

Although I never did it myself, I do remember it. When I first heard about it, I was a bit surprised about how a thin layer of pencil material could do the trick...

Ill kick off the Saturday action,

Nice romantic surprise cheese board and posh wine. *edit* a sprinkle of children's pants perfects the mood. Though often angers the parents*




Going down nicely....



I would of instant merit this nice "cheese table" if I had.... enjoy a fine meal, I do love to eat cheese as well, which wine are you connecting to the cheese?

In 2 hours will be drinking and eating as well.... Maybe to take a cheese board as well as desert, you're making me hungry.

After this I took one for the team   Cool

The 'yearly high'.

I've seen others saying 'ATH' when they mean 'the yearly high'. But it's wrong/confusing.

Yes let's keep on creeping up... Cool

Bitcoin network hash rate climbs to 6 month high

Quote
The Bitcoin hash rate climbed to its highest level since October 2018 as the BTC spot price looks to break $5,800. Data shows the Bitcoin hash rate – the computing power responsible for securing the network, at above 58 quintillion hashes per second (58 million tera hashes per second – TH/s). This is the 4th highest ever hash rate recorded on the Bitcoin network. The increase in hash rate points to more mining nodes being active on the network. With more mining nodes, comes greater security for the Bitcoin network making it more difficult for attack vectors to succeed in compromising the fidelity of the blockchain.

Quote
Thus, it is unsurprising to see more mining nodes coming online as BTC may be gearing up for another parabolic growth cycle.

I’m ok with dropping to $4,000 again, whatever. It just helps us gobble up cheaper coins before this thing goes parabolic. I’m trying to get to a certain round number of bitcoin’s but I need another 6.9BTC to make it. I’m not sure I’ll be able to before it becomes too expensive.
