Miklyway as it supports ATI, I was right, the "Join this team" option wasn't showing up under Chrome.

I have the BOINC client up and running, keeping getting this in the messages over and over...

Not sure if that's normal or not, and my TPF for CPU folding has gone up by 2 minutes.

Don't know... might still be the same situation with ATi GPUs and SMP Folding? Try the variables, and see if that changes anything.

Oh I'm thinking it is, my SMP client is all messed up, won't budge a percentage now even without BOINC running. Last time this happened I tried to GPU2 + SMP fold and it took me down for a few days...yay?

Urgh, what is up with ATI and trying to do anything on the card while doing something with the CPU, it's crazy...and driving me crazy.

Welp, off to fix my SMP client!

Yes. You'll need to configure the project not to use the GPU though:

A web page will open. You should see "[Project Name] Preferences". Click that, and you'll be able to turn off CPU or GPU.

Thanks. I actually read that post and somehow missed that you mentioned GPU at the end.

Yes, just suspend computation whenever u want and resume whenever you want. The work units have deadlines to when they need to be completed and sent back though, so you don't have forever to do them.

I would recommend doing projects that take some time. [email protected], World Community Grid and [email protected] comes to mind. You can download the work units during your free internet time, and let your computer compute it all day (or whenever you please). The internet is not needed during computation of the task. When the task is finished, it will be ready to be uploaded. You can upload it during the free internet time.

I'd say try it out. Every little bit counts. At the end of the day, it's all about advancing the sciences. Even if you only do a work unit a day, that's still something. Having high credit isn't everything.

Okay, I installed the latest client but I cannot find any way to stop it from starting automatically on bootup. Is there any way to have it only start manually? I cannot have this always coming up on bootup, so I uninstalled until I find a way to only start manually.

Any help anybody can provide would be appreciated.

Run> msconfig> Startup tab. Uncheck the box there and it should stop it starting automatically.
