Bloxcache Boinc Caching Batch File

I'm sick of the piddly 90 min worth of WU that Milkyway can give us as a cache. So I created a batch file to allow multiple caches of work to be maintained.. so you can have 48 hours worth for instance.

::BloxCache for BOINC - created by Blox of Overclock.net
::Create a thread in the BOINC section if you have problems
::First work out how many caches you need for each system
::(Time per task x max no of tasks (6xNo of Boinc CPU for Milkyway))/No of GPU on proj. That tells you how long each 

cache will take to proccess. Then work out how long you want to keep as a cache, e.g. 48hrs.. divide 48 hours by time 

per cache(in hours ofc). Now you know how many caches to use. The deadline is 8 days, so make sure not to cache more 

than that or you will run out of time)

::make sure you edit your main cc_config.xml to disable all gpus, and create a cc_config_gpu.xml in the c:\programdata

\boinc dir (I just set <exit_on_idle>1</exit_on_idle> , but also set it on the command line, so prob not necessary)
::@echo off
set x=32

::make dirs - change the next line to set the 
cd c:mp
if exist bloxcache%x% (
for /l %%i IN (1,1,%x%) do (
mkdir bloxcache%%i
::the following checks don't work, cba taking them out.. it will always copy the files from the cpu boinc dir
if not exist gui_rpc_auth.cfg (copy c:\programdata\boinc\gui_rpc_auth.cfg bloxcache%%i\gui_rpc_auth.cfg)
if not exist global_prefs.xml (copy c:\programdata\boinc\global_prefs.xml bloxcache%%i\global_prefs.xml)
