    I do have it pinned, but I often forget to click it and by the time I do remember its too late to gather the data I want. So an automatic way of running it, just like I had it on Win7 would be ideal for me. This is literally the only issue I have had since moving to Win8 all those months ago.

    No, it didn't work for me either. It's not like were incompetent with the PC or anything :laugh: I think there's something else going on here.

    If this TRULY is the ONLY issue you have had, good on 'ya! :DBut I think you are either lying through your teeth OR you have actually fooled yourself!!
    :roll:

    As far as incompetence, I won't go there. :laugh:

    However, it seems simple to me. One click, BAM!! :pimp:

    The Startup Manager, is foolishly stupid...A little like Metro. :wtf:

    Let's see, how can I work, yet, another Emoticon in....

    :lovetpu:

    * @theonedub how's this for your Latin? Periit fides, genus humanum pereat. :p

    Ha, I'm sure there were other minor hiccups but the fact I can't remember them is a testament to how trivial they were :D Once I get this sorted, Ill be a happy camper once again.

    I agree. I have little issues with Win8, and this issue only came to my attention when you posted it the other day :laugh:

    Actually my biggest issue when I moved to Win8 was not being able to run multi-GPU-WUs initially during be HCC project, but that was fixes about 2 months later iirc.

    Rig 2 is going to be putting out a little less for the next couple of days (not that it does all that much), but probably just for the weekend. I got in a new GPU that needs some testing, since it's too much hassle to do it on my main rig, it'll be rocking on the i3, which will do a credible enough job ;) :laugh:

    Some folding will sure give it a good bit of testing ;)

    I did consider that, and I may give it another go. Just, folding at the ridiculous temps that it would makes me a little uneasy.... :oops: We'll see how it goes.

    Looks like there may be some server issues. I can download new work, but all my rigs are stuck at uploading.

    I think so. Trying to load WCG's site, I get this message, "World Community Grid is performing site maintenance. Please check back later."

    WCG site is back up, and it brings glad tidings: a new Badge :D

    I'll post it up tomorrow :roll:

    Unless everything that can change the CPU's power state is off in the BIOS, most programs on Linux won't show the correct clock if the CPU overclock has a non-standard FSB/HT/etc. involved. Because most provide the clock that the kernel reports. And in case the CPU can change power stated, it always reports [multiplier] x [default FSB/HT/etc.], even if the actual FSB/HT/etc. clock was changed. Keep that in mind.

    I only encountered three programs that would report the real CPU clock. But unfortunately, those are not monitoring programs and just need to know the actual clock to configure themselves properly and just reports it in their logs. And I sometimes end up having to rely on those...
    I was thinking of writing a program to report actual CPU clocks, but did not get to that yet. I might file a bug report to the Linux kernel and complain about the incorrect clock being reported. And possibly gonna fix it, if no one will.

    Norton, non-free programs are largely rare on Linux, so "free program" is quite redundant :)

    So this bug only shows up when dealing with an OCed system?

    it only happens If and only if the FSB / HT, i.e. CPU Bus clock was altered AND if the CPU can change power states.
    Thus, if the OC is done only by changing the multiplier while leaving the default CPU bus (FSB / HT / etc,) clock and/or if all power saving features / turbo / etc. are off in the BIOS (giving the CPU a fully static clock), You won't see this issue.

    I suppose most of You have those power saving features / turbo / etc. off, so won't be affected.

    Also, @Norton to check the CPU clock, You can always run the
    lscpu
    command – it shows CPU info, including the clock. Alternatively, You can
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    in case lscpu is not available for some strange reason. cat /proc/cpuinfo gives more info about the CPU, but in a much less "pretty" format AND prints the info per core, resulting in effectively the same info being repeated as many times as there are cores.
    Both are affected by the aforementioned issue, though.

    Thanks for all of the Linux info :toast:

    I'll go over it a little later today- got called into work on an emergency and 9 hrs/320 miles later I'm too tired to comprehend it atm :oops:

    In case anyone is wondering.... Yes WCG is having issues with uploads/downloads today.

    They are having issues with storage space on the upload server and are letting small batches of work through on a sporadic basis- expect to see problems with uploads/downloads at least through the end of the day today..:(

    Agreed :p

    Looks like they let the flood gates open a little bit and one of my remote rigs just sent 3 days of work into the system.... happened around 18:00 UTC (10-15 minutes ago)
