    Well, I couldn't stand it anymore so I moved my screen over to check my other rig. It was up and crunching but the wireless wasn't connected. I thought it was set to connect auto but sometimes when it restarts it won't connect. Thats really annoying. She's fine now and finally got all the done projects uploaded.

    Guys, I have a questions.

    My OS (Win7 x64) has been acting up weirdly in the last couple of days. Freezing and locking up.
    So I decide to do a clean install because the last time I do a clean install was + 1 years ago and also I've got a new board coming next Saturday :D

    My question is : how to backup and transferring my current WCG tasks to the new OS?
    I just found BOINC folder under my ProgramData folder (C:\ProgramData\BOINC), so I suppose I just backup this folder or any other important things that I should know about?

    Thanks.

    If you do a clean install BOINC will think it is a new CPU and it might get confused if it assigned it to one CPU and got it return from a different. You better empty your task folder and start fresh.

    You are going to have some nice #'s tomorrow. :D

    It's okay :p

    I am not sure, but I don't think it can be done. When you install BOINC again you have to attach to it again so it will not pick up where you left off. Someone else want to confirm this?

    It is best to let the work run out by clicking "no new tasks" if you can. Otherwise, you end up detaching the work and end up with a bunch of aborted/detached work units in your WCG history. I you have 2 machines running you may be able to transfer the work but I have never tried it.

    If you use the same computer name when you reinstall windows you will continue to accrue credit on that machine in your WCG account. This is true for CPU swaps too (i.e. credit follows the computer name).

    Sweet, I am going to get an Dell M6500 at work, replacing the XPS M1710 :)

    [​IMG]

    The project manager is changing like every year haha, he wants an Asus, so I'm lucky to grab that. It has like an i7 820QM, 4gb ram, HD5870M. Okay right now, it has the issue like all people having (BSOD, Freeze) But Ima repaire it, it's still under warranty. IF Dell can't fix it, I'll ask a replace like M6600 :D I7 Mobile, more crunch :toast:

    Wow, Azma666 has really been cranking up the gears lately. Congrats on joining the Millionaire's club :toast:

    Looking further down there's around 50 members outputting the equivalent of a 24/7 Quad core. The limited time I have to peak at stats these days are certainly spent gawping in awe, keep up the great work guys :respect: :respect:

    My long time crunching goal of having 2 i7's running 24/7 has been realized :cool: Not sure how long I can keep them both up, but the point production is excellent.

    I think you can add me to the 10k+ group :toast: That 970 is kicking serious butt. It is keeping pace with the x6 and it is still throttling up.

    My production will be down some for a while until my FX-8150 arrives, but the "community X3 720" should arrive tomorrow so I can put that in a machine, and maybe even AudiTuner's Q9300 setup. Brandon's X2 4200+ setup should arrive today to get things started, if I have time that is. :)

    looks like I am building a new cruncher. Put on my good jacket and found a shit load of chips in the pocket.:slap:

    The Eee pad was for fun. Don't think it will crunch for the team.

    @stinger608 Good to see things went well.:toast::toast::toast:

    Yesterday, I tore down some rigs and swapped some parts around between them. The 1045T is now in the K9A2 platinum, running at 266*13.5=3600 @ 1.35v and RAM is at 1066. The X3 720BE is in my Biostar board and running at 200*17=3400 @ 1.35v with RAM at 1333. 990FX system is still running a Sempron 130 until the FX-8150 and other goods arrive in a day or two. P5WDH got turned down a notch to 373*7.5=2800 on the Q9300 for stability. A8N-E with a stock 4400+ 939 is back online with the CMOS battery removed and the holder hardwired to the power LED pins, which works perfectly. No more buying batteries for it.

    Someday, I'll probably list all the specs like Brandon does in his sig. Unfortuantely, I have 8 machines currently operating, one assembled but unplugged, and an additional 4 boards/chips (one dual core, rest single core) that I'm reserving as backups so I probably won't have enough space to list them all lol. I'm also waiting for my new 8 port GigE switch to arrive so I can get another one or two online, but the 15K BTU/hr supplementary window A/C which we now leave on 24/7 is having difficulty cooling the large room with all the PCs sufficiently (reaching 80F during the day) when the 2 ton central A/C in the other office is not running.
