    Just joined the team... now... is there any way I can confine it to run in my system tray only so I don't have the bar for the program in my task bar?

    I couldn't join the tpu team so I just joined... on to team apparantly. When I clicked on the link in fit's post it said the program was unavailable or something along those lines

    Joined TPU team, you now have the full power of my A64 5200+!

    Well, as the Tesco adverts say 'every little helps'.

    Just moved myself to the tpu team. I am impressed with WCG... so easy to run. Set it up and never think about it again... maybe I can convince my mom to run this on her machine, she has an athlon xp 2200+

    :confused:

    maybe WCG site is messed?

    seems to work now.

    you can run BOINC as a service and never have to mess with it again. when you install there is an option to run as a service.

    thanks for helping out. ;)

    There's some guy wanting to trade one PII x3 for two 7750 kumas... I asked him if he'd sell me one for $50. If he says yes I'm jumping on it...

    Yeah it kinda bothered me that I couldn't do F@H anymore (no DX10 card for gpu... no multi core processor for SMP). I could do the single core client but the single client is old and crappy... I'd much rather run this

    Is it just me or is the WCG site slow slow slow? I can't even login--it just doesn't work.

    I need to re-download the WCG client... is there an alternate download link somewhere?

    I finally got enough spare parts to dedicate this computer 100%. I have been reading a lot about WCG and I am so happy to be apart of the team. :toast:

    In that case: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php
    You will just have to attach the client to WCG after installing (just select World Community Grid from the list of projects, and enter your info)

    Keep seeing this when the screen saver activates too. And seems to having issue's with my firewall too as i have only been able to upload data for 1 completion out of 4. Even with it disabled seems to have a issue now were as it did not before.

    I have 1 more near finished now ( 20 mins max ). I'm hoping it was with joining the TPU group so i'll just upload them and see what happens.
