|Ive been thinking would the most efficient way to make your computer run Muon be creating a bootable version that you could run from a disc. i would love to see that happen so i can give my HD some rest. and second of all wouldn't a bootable version be THE most efficient one? Its just an idea. maybe a bootable cd that saves onto a floppy disc... Does this makes sence or is it just a idiotic thought?|
|I'm actually looking for a way to make muon run and having my HD in power save mode at the same time. You might wonder why: I have a maxtor Diamondmax9 80 gig and it has broken down a few months ago. It was still in waranty so i got a new one. I really let it run 24/7 and perhaps it just. But I want to prevent my HD from doin unneeded duty. thats why i want to get muon to work without my HD running... Any ideas?|
|You could run it off a USB stick?|
|A usb stick should be possible, but i don't think you like to do this. (limited write actions on the flash memory in it).|
You can try to create a ram-drive !
|I tried a ramdrive (from Qsoft) it still seems to acces the HD (the HD led lights every now and then)|
|Running from a USB stick ought to be OK as Muon1 doesn't write to it very often, provided you switch auto-save OFF.|
Your RAM disk might not be doing what you want if some of your RAM is being mapped to a swapfile on your hard disk! I don't know whether you've changed the swapfile settings so it won't write to the HDD.
|Just a question but macking a client for dos is no option or is it?|
|Nope! I guess we are past MS-DOS. |
You can reduce hard drive access by setting the autosave time to 0 for no save. That way the muon1 program will only need to write to the hard drive when it is saving a result and not save during the processing.
