Even if what they are doing is putting off the date the the project is maybe finished, It can only be a few hours/days at most. I'm pretty sure the scientist's that are getting the data when we are through are not staying up 24/h a day studying the results and writing their paper's:haha:.I understand what you are saying Badatcards, but the thing that I think you need to consider is that once the assignment server issues a WU, it is not issued to someone else until after the deadline.
So the WUs that the assignment server gives bwm (but are not downloaded by bwm) are not issued to anyone else until after the deadline. The server has to wait until after the deadline, which means that science gets done more slowly, hindering the project and the search for cures. This is bad.
The way I see it is if someone is going to spend 1000's of $$$$ on hardware/ farm/ hydro just to fold as a hobby they should be able to pick their WU's. Maybe that should be a bonus for people that as long as they have 10+ clients going( a folding farm) they can pick their WU's as a extra bonus for the extra effort they are doing. Those of us running are everyday PC's with 1-9 clients get the rest:thumb:.
[email protected] is the biggest supercomputer in the world, I'm sure it can re-prioritize the WU's and get them back out their ASAP if needed. I would bet PG does not care about him or others doing this 1 bit:thumb:.
The guy just want's to bust out some good ppd before he kick's the bucket....... I dont see this as a reason to hate on the guy and his wife. I know some people here argued with him at times ( Who or Over what, Cant remember ) , If they hate him because of that, OK sure:haha:. But this:doh:
