RE: BOINC General
Eh, I don't think I'll bother. As long as it works, it's probably not worth the hassle of setting that up on every computer I run.

RE: BOINC General
Something I've discovered today is that if your CPU isn't being used at 100% for no apparent reason (and your event log is showing the right number of CPUs/cores), you need to go into the computing preferences and set the option "On multiprocessor systems, use at most X% of the processors" to 100% instead of 0%. While 0% is supposed to ignore that setting, in some cases, it apparently won't work.

RE: BOINC General
Odd...One of the computers I have BOINC on is not starting BOINC automatically. The client is enabled in the startup list, but it never actually starts. Nothing in the task manager. To get the projects working, I need to open boincmgr. Then I can close it (either completely, or to the tray) to continue running the projects.

Any idea why? If it matters, it's Windows (7 or Vista...I forget. Probably 7).

For anyone who is wondering why they haven't been receiving any new WUs from SkyNet POGS, that would be because there are no more WUs to do. The project was officially announced complete as of ten days ago!

Make sure you've got other projects attached, so your systems aren't running idle!

Nothing wrong with it. But the sooner all projects end, the better, because science.

Okay, since there hasn't seemed to be a good update in a while, which BOINC projects are we active in, and which ones should we focus on the most right now?

once I can transfer important files off of my old laptop that I just recently swapped off from, I'll be dedicating that to running the bottom three or four projects by points earned, in an attempt to increase their levels and our overall one more (having read in the past that the higher level you get to, the more difficult levels become to achieve). Otherwise, I have both my desktop (when I'm not at it) and an old android crunching away at a little bit of everything.

RE: BOINC General
with regard to LHC, sixtrack is a bit unreliable for tasks atm, sometimes there's a lot but for long periods there's no tasks available the others require vm or installation of a specific file system for native atlas.
