FWIW, default BOINC behavior (not the work units themselves, but the way BOINC works) can cause PPD to bounce around a little bit on its own. There is a setting you can change only by creating a cc_config.xml file with the report_results_immediately flag set. This uploads a work unit as soon as it is finished, as opposed to waiting for the next time BOINC communicates with the server. Just open Notepad/ paste this in, and save it as cc_config.xml. It goes in the boincdata folder... wherever it is by default, I dunno. During installation, I make a new folder for BOINC to live in called DC, with subdirectories Boinc and BoincData. The DC folder helps keep things neat if I decide to install FAH, too. It would also go there.
<cc_config> <options> <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately> </options> </cc_config>
update: the file is already there so i added the line like this
is this ok?
