Hi all, years ago under different account I was able to turn off (Grey out the button) the graphical side of WU's which sped up the crunching, for some reason I can't remember how it was done, any help on this would be great..

Also which Addons are best to use to watch whats happening within a WU..

Cheers

I'm not sure about the screensaver, I just disable the screensaver in Windows. Looking in the manager (I'm using 7.6.33), if you click on a task the Show Graphics button becomes active and you can enable the screensaver. I would expect that if the screensaver is already enabled, the opposite would hold true.

The only add-on I use is BoincTasks ( I used to use TThrottle from the same developer but stopped when I realized it wrongly slowed my GPUs). There is a SETI add-on called SETI Spirit but I have no idea what its purpose is.

Disabling the Windows screensaver will help some. My memory isn't what it used to be but I believe the Lunatics optimized applications have the screensaver code removed.
I have never used any add-ons so can't help you there. Running BOINC Manager in Advanced mode gives me enough information on work progress.

CRUNCH ON!

Milestones, generally, are based on Free-DC stats. You can find mine here. Basically anything of note is fine, e.g. personal best on a project competition. There's nothing you need to do to join, just keep on crunchin'. :D

Don't worry about the questions, chances are someone else has the same ones. :)

Cheers :p

Having only one computer is a pain as would love to crunch more WU's instead of the current 5 at a time (4x CPU & 1x GPU)
