View Full Version : Best long term nonet project/cleint

Hey all...

Im setting a pooter up in my rural office and I believe the law dictates that any computer must be running a DC project :D

The office is only attended every two weeks and is on dialup. The old gah0.99 client would have been perfect, but since that side of things is closing down does anyone know of a project or client that would be suitable?

DF is pretty good no net with DF gui,.. but I think the client changed so my info may be out of date... :scratch:

But why am I telling you this?,. you've used DF :noevil:

Cheers CDS :)
Id thought of that - but if the protein changes during an off week Id lose all the data (its 250kms from here)

Why not set it to run G@H until the classic version ends Wylie... G@H classic (0.99) is the best/easiest ~nonet client there is :cunning:

RC5-72 may be a candidate. If it can't connect it runs random units until it can connect. Since the project is so new its almost impossible to get a random dup unit.

I have 2 machines in the wild that I'm running this way. Every few weeks when I can get to them I then upload them,

I have to agree with JD on this one ... probably the best to try at this point is RC5 or OGR ... RC5 preferably simply becuase the the time it takes to do a unit is predictable. All the Dnet projects allow you to define how many units to cache, the units do not "expire" for somewhere on the order of months, plus if you do run out it will do random units (which at this stage of RC5-72 means you are likely not to lose much work because someone has already done it ... ) ... however, near as I can tell it's not difficult to cache several weeks worth of units if you need to ... plus the Dnet clients are among the least agressive clients when it comes to giving up the CPU to another process.

You might also like to consider our newest project Find-a-Drug (http://www.find-a-drug.co.uk) that allows you to cache units.

Thanks all!
I'll give RC5 a go and see how it pans out
