Hi fellow MacCentric BOINCers,

What's the easiest way to start BOINC at login/startup and keep it running?

I currently have CronniX 2.1 (downloaded it from MacUpdate, http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/7486 ) set up to cd to the BOINC directory, and then execute it with a ./ .

Is there a better way?

Thanks for all suggestions and help.

Colin,

Thanks. Your cron method seems to be what I'm using, then. Much appreciated.

Dave
