    Ok. $10000 + shipping. Can I put on my sailors hat and bring it to them? Or even better. Can I invade and conquer Canada with it?

    Invade? Sure.
    Conquer? You still need land forces, so no.

    I need t_ski to slap me again, for I stopped BOINC last night to play Trine 2, and of course I forgot to resume it. I was wondering earlier in the day why I was way low in the ranks, and now it all becomes clear :mad: :mad:

    But good work to everyone else! :respect: :respect:

    You need to just set up some rules so the system throttles back when you launch that exe

    You could leave it on and adjust this number to 10 or 20- BOINC should idle while you're gaming automatically

    EDIT- or what t_ski suggested :toast:

    Thanks t_ski and Norton! I guess I'll just have to do what you guys say. I suppose it'll work just as well, and that way I won't get screwed again. Silly me :oops:

    Have you tried using the exclusive application thing. I have it for my games and it works excellent.

    I haven't. A while back, I had the setting that the other guys mentioned, but after my last reinstall, I never messed with the settings again. I guess it's time.

    But what is this exclusive application that you mention?

    I don't want to get paint out, but look at the four tabs. The far right one. From there you direct boinc to the .exe of your game or any application really. If that application is running then boinc stops immediately. Starts up by itself too.

    Today I finally remembered and had time to fiddle with my settings, and I changed both of these. I set BOINC to pause after a certain cpu usage (don't remember what I chose, ~25%) and I set the exclusive applications to the most common games. I hope this will help me now so I won't have to stop BOINC whole gaming so u don't lose valuable time when I forget to resume.

    Anyhow, great work to all. And Dano, your numbers are still looking good to me ;)

    Great work team :toast:
