    Nada. After a couple of weeks of inactivity under the old name, that name will scroll off and you won't see it any more. In the meantime it's annoying and a little confusing, but there's nothing to be done about it. :toast:

    Thanks for the info twilyth :toast: Was wondering what would happen when a machine went inactive as well....

    Dorothydot's machine name is still listed with me, but it's crunching on her account now so that machine should drop off after a while as well?

    P.S> got my Thanks button back :D.... will probably lose it again if I hit it too many times today :p
    Daimus says thanks.

    Yes. Just go into your host stats on one of the stats sites and as long as the total doesn't change (and daily points stays 0), it will drop off. However I've notice that on Boinc stats, they tend to keep inactive machines listed for several weeks and I don't think Free-dc ever removes them. :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Oh on this matter, Check this out. I had a drive crash in one of my crunchers a couple weekends ago. So I popped in a new drive, reinstalled Linux and back to crunching it went. I made sure I renamed the machine the same. Guess what? Now I have 2 devices in wcg under that exact name. So you just can't pick up where you left off.



    And Norton, we are 3 star crunchers now. :toast:

    The ones that are not producing will drop off. Important thing is they are crunching under your login account.

    Quick stat of the day: Tomorrow I'll be 2nd highest all-time contributor in WCG for my country.:D And I'll stay there for a while since Number 1 in Spain is Bankinter (A bank) and their 1Million PPD per day :rolleyes:

    Maybe I should visit Canada and learn a few things from mjkmike. Then head back and play a game of poker with Bankinter :cool:

    In the middle of installing Windows on a C2D rig, for my mom, going to try and convince her to let me install Bonic on it since she's not paying anything for it. xD

    So apparently my new Mobo is shipped and my new build log is already posted. I do want some feedback though.

    I have 2 power supplies the best onee being the Coolermaster SilentPro 850w. My question is: Will that be enough power to run 2 Radeon HD 7970 reference cards?

    @Chaotic yes I think it will be enough. Just how much more hardware are you running with that?

    I have another cruncher in the works right now. Only thing I have left to finish is a CPU

    It will consist of:

    MOBO: BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard (Special thanks to Norton!)

    RAM: Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1339 (Special thanks to JrRacinFan!)

    HD: 120GB 2.5 SATA (Special thanks to KieX!)

    PSU: 350W 18A 12+ (Generic from a case purchase)

    Cooler: Have not decided.....

    Case: Emachines mATX case (Reuse from spare parts)

    The main thing I am looking for in this build is a I3-2100 to complete! Hope I get it up soon!

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Hell I ain't building anymore for awhile. I haven't seen any difference in my numbers since I built the x4 system. If anything I think they went down for some weird reason.. And that system replaced an Axp system.

    The numbers on the X4 should pick up- my new rig wasn't doing too much to contribute for about 2-3 days and then my ppd starting pulling up pretty good. I've been over 6k ppd for about 3 days now and about 7 or 8 pages of pending validations are out there too :)

    AN Axp system. Always "An" before a vowel. "A" only before "a consanant" :shadedshu
