    Is the ketchup smeared...? :laugh: The one time I changed my avatar I forgot who, but someone actually made a thread with a poll and they voted it back. So I can't remove it :roll:

    Got the Lappy up and crunching again. Still having issues getting Bonic working on my workstation. I think it may have something to do with the fact we are on a domain.... I'll get it figured out.

    The problem I'm having is that it installs, runs benchmarks, and then gets stuck downloading work from the server... Any ideas?

    This one has proven a good one many a times! If this ain't it, check the log and it will probably tell you what error messages there are.

    One thing I've found with my 3930K that I use at work is that if you're part of a local domain everytime you login as a different user to the one used to install it you'll get a BOINC message "error connecting to service". But it should keep running the service if you check the Task Manager. Not sure if it's that? Like installed with admin and then logged in as yourself after.

    If you didn't wipe the drive already, search for bionc manager in the Ubuntu Software Center. That's where I found it. I don't remember how I installed it though. I think it did it on it's own. As soon as I log in, bionc starts automatically.

    Do you guys change the cc_config.xml file so that the boinc client uploads every task when it's finished?

    @F150
    Do you use Boinc Tasks?
    And how many threads are you running on WCG?

    We normally add the <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately> line to upload completed tasks as they're finished. Windows auto-config here.

    Boinc Tasks can be a pain imho. If you have the IP of your machines you can use the standard BOINC Manager and select: Advanced>Select Computer. Although you won't get the nice view from BoincTasks alerting you if anything has gone wrong with a cruncher.

    BTW, your boinc tasks looks damn nice :D

    I just use the boinc manager, never tried boinc tasks.

    As far as how many threads I run, all of them.:laugh: It's a total of 112 threads.
