Im on 266 of 283 :slight_smile:
Dont laugh :frowning:


#2

Doesn’t matter! It’s just like you say: Together we can beat it


#3

Why does the dos ver go faster?


#4

u mean the dos client?

faster pc? :slight_smile: More idle CPU?


#5

well now i benchmarked it…
It turnes out dos is slower… How can that be?


#6

perhaps windows has a better memory/cpu allocation?

if dos would be better/faster, why would anyone use windows?


#7

Not in All progs but in distribute.net client


#8

Yes I understand but d.net client uses your idle CPU so perhaps windows has better allocation or something… hell I really don’t know :slight_smile:

however sounds strange because windows needs a lot more memory to run :slight_smile:


#9

Well i run with maximum priority. Yeah…
Agood feature would be that it loads X blocks to it’s memory and when it have finished X blocks then it saves to the hard drive… that would make it cheaper for lots of people and it would make less sound, because you could turn off your harddrive.


#10

Sorry if I don’t understand it exactly, but if u run the client your harddisk is running too???

My HD goes in stand-bye and the client keeps running…
and 2 give a higher prio 2 the client won’t help. It uses only the Idle-time…only thing that works 2 speed up is to run as less programs as possible… :slight_smile:


#11

Look, the process of the client is this, i belive

*loads 1 block from HD
** works with that block
***saves the finished block to HD

my idea was that if X is 25 then:

*loads 25blocks from HD
**works with every block, and saves the finished ones to the ram NOT the HD
*** after all of the 25 blocks are done it loads 25 more from the HD and saves the finished blocks to HD

the text is a bit messy but try to understand, would you ?

naaaaaaaaaaah :wink:

good question? wtf use windoze? when you can get linux or beos or even dos :wink:

or the make it ironic:

if windows would be better/faster, why would anyone use *nix?


#13

aha I get the problem, but i think it’s not very smart if you can set a buffer in youre memory to allot of units…
IF you’re system hangs/crashes/BSOD’s then you’re cows will all be flushed through the toilet cause nottin was saved on disk! :frowning:


#14

yeah, but how often does that happen when you’re not using the computer?


#15

hmmmm that’s true…you R right! :smiley: So there isn’t an option 2 enlarge the blocks or something? overwrite the max settings?


#16

No dont think so. max is 2^33
