    How about in the preferences, make sure the box is checked for Crunching while the computer is in use. I had the same problem and that box was unchecked.

    With the ready to report ones i've noticed a few of them geting back logged on my system. If you want to manually push them you can click the project and then update. It will push them all through.

    Hi guys,

    I've got no probs on my rig now, 8 WU going at a time but once they've been completed that's it - it's not queuing up tasks.

    What settings should i enable to give me a steady trickle of work?

    FWIW, i hit update on the project tab and the scheduler requests tasks and i always get 8 but after that it doesn't queue any for me....

    I've only been active since yesterday so i'm very new.

    Thanks for any help.

    EDIT: Ok, for some weird reason it just downloaded a screenful. Cool.

    Its possible depending on your settings it is waiting for your system to become idle. I think it's how the default policy is set up.

    The 54thvoid,

    Go to your preferences in the BOINC Manager. Under the network tab set your work buffer to four days or something like that. It will download enough work so that if servers are down, you'll still have work to crunch to a few days. :)

    Also if you guys want to report immediately after each WU is done, check out this thread:

    Just checking in to see how things are going here.
    Seems things are looking up, the team is doing great, w/out me.:cry:

    My return to having a place for my computers, and me, is in the future but, how long is up in the air. Someday, I will be back and crunching.

    I can hardly wait.

    Take Care TPU Crunchers, and I am very happy to see the numbers jump up over the past month, or so! Great Job guys! :toast:

    I'm interested in one of those cards too if Ion doesn't get both of them.
    Can pay on the 14th if so.

    I'd be interested in this most definitely, big enough for a system drive to crunch and maybe even a game :). Let me know what you want for it :D

    Does anyone have some spare SATA HDDs? Basically any size would work--I can always use small (~80GB) ones in my i7 rigs and put the larger ones I have in my Celerons to sell.

    Sorry ion, nothing avaliable from me.

    If you don't have a hdd by the time I get a new one I will pm you.
