This seems really easy to do... Installing it as "administrator" is NOT optional
Otherwise it crashes when trying to launch it. So far my NFS tasks have only used < 900MB. I was getting scared when you were talking about gigabytes lol...most my rigs have 8GB so shouldn't be a problem.
Ok, I tried it just to see what it was, and even though I only have 1 computer, I am never going back to the default BOINC manager. A lot more useful information, and very nice color coding. If I have more computers, it would also be super easy to monitor.
BTW, you need to install TThrottle by eFMer for the temperature graphs to work. It throttles BOINC to keep a certain temperature. I don't need it right now, but depending on this summer's temps I might need to throttle back slightly...
I hope I don't contribute to Einstein's problems. For some reason, once a connection was made it downloaded enough work for an entire month! I have 25 days worth of work to do before the 26th.
Edit: BoincTasks says 25 days combined. On 8 cores, it should only take 3 days. My bad.Edited by SuperSluether - 1/19/15 at 7:39am
