    Please consider helping us. It's only for 10 days and our teams have always worked together. We really need the i7 powerhouses if possible or high-end GPU's. Thanks so much in advance guy's!

    Car's going along well, just check my FB page for updates if you want. Did a oil/oil filter change recently, as well as air filter and I'm going to do spark plugs soon, just need the ran to stop for a bit. ;)

    Still have to get my new fender painted to match, as well as a new muffler. Lots of other work to do.

    Wth!

    Had a odd little thing happen that i wanted to share.A couple weeks ago,i stepped my mother's comp up with some vista and a new hard drive.It's been a very stable cruncher for the last year or so with no problems.Of course i loaded the newest Boinc on it so she could feel good about herself :D .

    All was good for a about a week,decent #'s for a quad at 70%.Then i noticed a drastic drop in production.Just figured she shut the machine down for a while.So after about 4 days of no #'s being reported,i gave her a call and asked if she had it shut down.Then i was a little shocked to learn that it had been running non stop since i hooked it up 2 weeks ago :wtf:

    So today i figured i better go check things out to see what was up.I wished i would have grabbed a snip of the manager,i could'nt believe what had happened.Something glitched in a big way that i've never seen boinc do before.It was actually crunching away on aproximately 30 to 35 tasks all at once :eek:.

    After aborting them all,detaching,and a re-install of Boinc.Hopefully things will be back in order.It would be great if that quad would have been able to crunch like that though.

    Edit/create a cc_config.xml file (in BOINC data folder) and manually type this:
    Code:
    <cc_config> 
      <options> 
        <ncpus>2</ncpus>
      </options> 
    </cc_config>
    (Replace two with the number of threads the processor is supposed to be running)
    That should fix your problem. Most likely BOINC was just incorrectly detecting the number of CPU threads.
