    I don't know how it would be made easier without having multiple builds. A shortcut/batch can set the colors.

    True, I never said it was a bad thing.. We don't want to lose the user in the concept. But it looks nice. I like it.

    Edit: Sorry watching my nephews, and they are driving me crazy..lol I don't think the user would want to create a shortcut/batch for the exe. I maybe wrong.. Can we get some input from some other users?

    If you want to release it, go ahead. The version number should already be 1.0.0 which is correct.

    Search the system for a cc_config.xml. Once you find it, add

    Code:
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    In between the two options tags.

    In ubuntu top left select "Places". Then at the bottom of that drop down menu select "Search for Files...". That's it happy searching. Let me know if you need anymore help.

    I don't know ford... I installed win7 last night on one of my E8400 rigs, and installed Boinc x64.. I didn't run my easy WCG config file, because I remembered you saying the Bonic x64 client returns work immediately. I woke up this morning, and it had completed work waiting to be sent.

    I still haven't configured the cc_config.xml, just waiting to see if it happens again. Since this morning after I manually sent work, it hasn't happened again. Ford have you experienced this on any of your rigs? To be on the safe side, I would configure the file.

    BOINC x64 doesn't auto-report tasks for me, I used Mindweaver's CC config and now it reports them as soon as they finish :eek:

    Not yet, I just installed Win 7 on Saturday. Today made up for my poor numbers yesterday, over 3000 today (vs about 1600 yesterday). I've always employed the cc mod in one form or another, I don't like wild points swings ;)

    Maybe Boinc x64 found WCG's 32-bit config file for me. I had WCG (6.6) installed before BOINC x64. Still, I think it's stupid they don't assume you want to report results immediately.

    Not here, it almost entirely depends on how much my quad is on that day (the E6550 and the P4s are about the same every day, but the quad fluctuates around a lot more). I can't leave the quad on all of the time because of electricity usage, if I do my parents start complaining at me :banghead: :eek:

    oh ok, well in that case you'll always have fluctuation. But since all of my rigs crunch 24/7, unless one is down or the stats are bugged, my output is typically about the same.

    Lower the work buffer to two days and make sure it is set to run at 100% idle.

    weird, I have work buffer at 4. I mean it fluctuates. I'm talking about my overall score too! I have three rigs and if each fluctuatues a couple hundred points I may have over a 1000 points difference from day to day. But my i7 alone is just usually a few 100's
