    I'm the opposite so they eventually start racking up serious RA
    Usage.

    A browser taking 1GB RAM? Do you keep 30 tabs open all at once?

    i regularly have about 1.3gb ram use from FF, after one day... happens when you have dozens of youtube tracks and a heap of other tabs open... i also deactivated the disk cache, so it operates only in the ram ;)

    That's....alarming :eek:

    FF, even on my Mac (main system ATM) rarely uses more than a couple hundred MB.....even w/ lots of tabs open.


    Oh, and I have another PentDC coming within the next half an hour or so :)

    Five open at all times and when i check TPU sometimes I open up 25 threads in new tabs to read each one.

    I you pay attention, FF and opera use more and more ram if you leave them open and never close them. Fit pointed it out a while back and it's true. I opened opera and it took 200MB let's say, after a week of not closing it it might be using a 1GB or close.

    I end up closing FF or w/e at night, it just makes it feel faster :)

    The 25th PentDC is now up and running, I should be able to get the Mac lab (12x2.26ghz C2D) going tomorrow then the Mac guy comes in :)

    Not exactly. Boinc stats, free-dc and everyone else who tracks WCG get the stats from the WCG servers. These are posted every 6 hours in XML format. Any stats site that wants to track the stats dl's this info and uses it to update their proprietary databases.

    I was just being a dick calling the other stats sites "bogus". Boinc stats is a good site but I like free-dc better.

    edit - here is the link if you want to dl the raw stats yourself - http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/boinc/stats/

    Spent all day trying to fit a Corsair H70 inside a NZXT Vulcan today :shadedshu :banghead:
    (Possible, but impratical and not recommended)

    Tomorrow I'll get a GFX card and should get The Don's memory soon. Before the end of this week this new cruncher will be up and running.

    I think my lappy's been down for at least a day and a half. Boinc manager said no internet connection, so I'm restarting to see if that'll fix it.

    Best of luck :toast:

    I like to set the work buffer to at least 3 days, so if net access goes out, it keeps going.

    On my dedicated system, I had the buffer set to 8 days so I only had to check on it once a week :cool:

    Bro a lot of people have had that issue where BOINC won't upload or download any WU's. If it happens the fix for both machines that I have fixed was to detach from the project (Lose all work that has not been uploaded) and attach to the WCG project again. That got it going for both of my rigs, but I did lose some work. :(

    Well, I just restarted her, and she's crunching away again. No idea how it happened, I guess it just dropped connection and it needed a restart.

    Thanks for the buffer suggestion, I just set my dedicated to 3 days since it crunches so slow anyway :laugh:

    Milestones for sure, we're beasting it up here on TPU!

    Excellent, 3 days is also what I keep all of the school systems at, that way if net access goes out at any point on the weekend, they should be able to get it resolved before any of them run out of work :)
