    Does anyone know or have a list of all the directories where BOINC files are stored?

    I remember that I once uninstalled BOINC and just happened to be looking through the HDD later on and found directories that still contained BOINC/WCG files.

    I have 17 minutes left on this comp at the Library. I would have had more time but, I was Google mapping a bike route to work and dumping e-mails for the last 40+ minutes!

    Anyways, thanks for all the good wishes! :toast: I have work Wed. and this weekend, with Thu. off. I have a bunch of things to do so probably will not be around until next Monday.

    Keep up the good work Crunching, wish I could help, hopefully before too long I will be back in action.

    I'm going now to apply for a second job doing food prep at a Macy's store downtown here. My buddy works there and he says his job sucks because there are no prep people. He says they are hiring three people, I hope to be one of them! It starts at 10+ an hour and I could get 4 days of 5 or 6 hour shifts. That would go a long way towards funding a cable bill, when I get out of this Mission place. "Our Mission is Changing Lives," they say, on everything, it's a nice place, clean and all, but it has been "Changing" my life in the wrong ways!

    I have lost over 20 pounds in the last week! I am 6'4" and normally walk around at 205-210lbs. Yesterday I was weighed at the Medical Center, 181!! I need more calories than I am getting from them. I run through 2500-3000 a day in the summer, I'm sure I'm only
    getting about 1500-1800 from the smallish meals they serve.

    Plus, days I work I miss breakfast, and have to buy sumptin'...cheap! Cheap equals crappy non nutritious calories and it's just not enough! That plus the lack of sleep is making me into a Zombie!! Is that really the way the want to "Change" my life?

    Oh well, I have been through worse times, i.e. Army events, so I am mostly upbeat but tired.

    Best I can do, right now! :)

    Blah Blah, Blah...Take Care and Crunch away!!!

    Something wasn't stable somewhere. Ram was about at stock, but to keep up with it my uncore had to be 3200. My core was at 3.6GHz, bclk 200x18. I'm trying 175x21, so really everything is higher than it was before. I'm thinking maybe the high bclk was to blame. Mem is now at 1700 so uncore is 3500, I tried giving the uncore a little more juice at 1.275v, hope it works out.

    On a side note, there's a chance I may be getting a 2600k soon. I have a friend who seems willing to give me a good deal on it, if it still works. I plan to oc it to 4GHz, which it should do on stock volts, and leave it at that. Then I'll be trading my 920 and my rampage 3 to another friend who has a 960, but a crappy motherboard that shipped in a prebuilt. This way he can overclock faster than the 960, and I don't lose out on too much since I'll have the better chip be default. The 960 would go in my secondary machine, the rig I was planning on using the 1090t with.

    Though I have no space to use it here now, I'll dig up some parts somewhere to make the 1090t a complete system. Once we move out of this apartment, if we do, I'll have more room to run these machines. Though I'll have a 2600k and a 960 going, I can see the 1090t in the future as a 3rd machine, but only if the 2600k deal works out.

    You guys had better watch out... give me time and I just might be grabbing some pie. :toast:

    Hat, then 960's do quiet well with crunching. I average right a 3k a day with mine. Some days it spikes to about 3500. Yesterday it did 3200.

    It will be cool to have more competition for the pie. :toast:

    @Hat...Are we talking about a 960T or an i7 960? If it's a 960T then Mad is right, I got at least that much when I was running that chip :toast:

    I want my 5th star back then I'll hazing me a bit more of that Pie :D

    I'm pretty excited, with my i7 laptop doing ~4k, I feel that 6k+ is entirely reasonably for a 4GHz+ i7 :)

    That is up-to-date; the AMD X2 hasn't been crunching in a few weeks (I've been out of town pretty much since July 20th; the AMD X2 just isn't worth leaving on while I'm gone, it uses a ton of power and the output is the lowest of everything I have). My T9600 also seems to be offline ATM, but I still have ~6k PPD in rigs going ATM :)

    Once I get a new desktop built, my goal is a consistent 10k+ every day :cool:
    C:\ProgramData
    C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files
    I can't think of any more right now....
    I'm glad to hear that you're still doing alright! Best of luck, I wish you luck getting the new job! :toast:
    Your dedication is amazing! :respect:

    I was thinking he meant a 960T considering he put 1090t in the same sentence. My wrong. :nutkick:

    Don't lose hope Arjai, I was homeless in Montreal QC from May 2002 until April 2003. there was a housing crisis with a 2% vacancy rate for rental apartments. I lost everything I ever owned. when I finally got off the street all I had was a backpack with some clothes and an unfurnished bachelor pad. I slept on the floor for 4 years until I finally bought myself a bed. Now I have a fully furnished 2 bedroom upper in a house with 3 performance computers.

    If I can do it, you can do it!!!! :toast:

    It hasn't been running for a few weeks, but I ran for a few a i7 950 at stock which I believe is 3.2 GHz, and I was getting about 3500ish ppd. Just for reference. Even that would still be a nice choice.

    Consistent 10k ppd would definitely be nice :) I hope I can at least get close to that. I used to do with both i7's running, the 2600K and the i7 950 about 8-9k ppd. If I got lucky I'll get to 10k ppd some days. We'll see. Can't wait to get that going again when I get back home.

    Yeah, you should have no issues getting 3.5-4k PPD from it...and a ~3.8GHz OC should be cake, which could net you 5-5.5k depending on the WUs you give it (C4SW seems to be the best, if you can cope with the RAM usage)

    Whether I add a IVB Xeon, 2600k, OCed 920, or OCed FX, 10k PPD is basically 1 new computer away...and on a good day I might be able to pull a slice of pie. We'll see, 2 FX rigs would be ~$550 (using RAM, HDDs, and PSUs I have ATM), but I don't think I can get two right now. Perhaps one now & one later on...

    Two would be sweet :). But don't push it, one is fine, when the crunching bug bites again you get the second one. :D

    Piledriver 10 core would deffo be nice but I'm tapped out on purchasing. I toyed with the idea of delaying the 8 core build to wait for the piledriver but I just had to get a 2nd performance pc!!! :D
