Default can you run prime95 off of a network drive?

i have several roomates

they all want to run prime but they not exactly experts

so occashonaly there comptuers crash and stuff


so rather than digging into busted systems and saving backup files and stuff

could i just make 3-4 seperate prime95 directorys in my comptuer and have them map them as a network drive

would prime still start up atuomaticly at boot up?

is there anyway to do it with just one directory

Yes, you can run it of a mapped drive, just make sure that "connection" is active when you need it. Mapped drives are very quickly "forgotten" by the systems. Maybe try using a decreased time between disk-writes to keep the connections active.

You could possibly do it with one directory, but it would complicate the startup parameters you would have to use. Check the readme or undoc textfiles for the right parameters to us.

Why not use 4 sub-directories, one for each client. Very easy to set up and the client doesn't mind.

It is not a problem creating and maintaining a stash of exponents on one machine, just increase the always have at least x number of days work thingy. The difficult part is reassingning it to the other machines when and as they need more work to do.

I would guess your best option is to run the shared disk senario. That way you could always complete to work yourself. Then again you are aslo putting all your eggs in one basket ;)
